I find news almost as exciting as mulching my shrubs and flower beds tonight after work, how do I contain myself?
I'd just like to see some kind of refresh for the Challenger. Perhaps new front and rear fascias. It's been since 2015 and it's certainly due.

I guess since the originals didn’t run that many years so they are limited if they are to keep with the retro themes. Nissan is running their Frontier 16 years now and other than a new engine slated to go into the new body next year has been unchanged since 2005.
The less changes the more profit for Chrysler and well we will know soon. At Chrysler’s at Carlisle I’ll hear what they say in person.

I'm just hoping for subtle updates like bumpers etc. like they did in 2015. Dodge has said that the next gen Challenger will be based off the current platform but modified. It will also retain a "retro" look.

It's gotta be Hellcat Durango and RAM news, why would they announce any 2021 Challenger news now when you won't see a 2021 til Christmas and they've just gotten 2020 up and running? More creative marketing and not much for us at this point I would suspect.

I agree with Slidd. The RAM TRX or whatever it's called is the biggest news. They originally planned a 575 hp version, but will give it the full 700+ version. Add in the Durango, and the numbers bump up significantly.

I'll get another Challenger in it's final year in it's current form. What I'm waiting for is the new Dakota or a 5th Gen Ram 1500 STANDARD cab. Apparently there's a holdup on these. They were promised by now. I've been looking at other brands for another truck. I'd hate to do that but Ram has dropped the ball with these two customer groups (mid size and full size standard cab). I regret selling my 2015 Ram R/T. Best truck I've ever had.

I don't expect any changes, just some additions and like any year, some appearance stuff or packages. There won't be a redesign of the Challenger. As mentioned, Redeye Charger, Durango Hellcat...

Will see if a friend at my local dealer has it correct when he mentioned changes will include a truck, track car and Charger...
