I've been hating on the Charger ever since they soiled the bed on the Charger legacy with this 4-door family sedan in 2006. Even for a run-of-the-mill grocery getter, the design was uninspired, and blaspheming the Charger name was just an insult on top. Then they slap a bunch of retro-inspired decals on it and stuff HEMI engines in it and try to pass it off as a "Muscle Car", when all it really is, is a 300 with some stickers, funky sheet metal and plastic, and big engines.
If they wanted a link to the past, they should have just called it a Monaco or Polara and offered it with a V-6 and a small V-8, and had a reasonable family sedan offering, not this franken-car that they have now.
You can't put 707 HP in a turd and call it a race car. It's just a really fast turd.
And when you put 707 HP on an tired looking SUV, you have a really fast AWD turd.
And I still don't know what they're going to do with 707+ HP in a RAM pick-up. Maybe get some bales of hay from the field to the barn in record time? Or beat everyone to the Kenny Chesney concert?
