Not everyone was saying "don't expect anything"...Matter of fact, most everyone was expecting something.
Most agreed that a minor refresh and/or new engine and interior options were quite likely to happen.
The 50th anniversary is a "no brainer" to offer something...anything...but to offer nothing??
At this point, the silencing of RS and others, makes no sense what so ever.
If anything, by withholding this "NO NEWS" for so long, FCA likely cost themselves sales.
I'm sure their were people on the 2019 order fence, but decided to wait for 2020 specs.
I doubt those people are going to buy the exact same 2020 car now, for $4,850-$7,970 more.
I don't know if the "Power Dollars" rebate will be extended or not. It was supposed to go up in smoke as of 9/03.
If the rebate is extended (I said "IF"...I am NOT claiming it will be) FCA could sweep out the remaining 2019 inventory, fairly quickly.
Beyond that, as it stands, I don't see 2020 being a great year for Challenger sales.
I'm with BlackHemi41, in hoping that FCA has more up their sleeve thru out the model year.
Thou I realize, anything meaningful, is unlikely to happen.
