Two different cars aimed at different markets. Both I dare say are considered "cool" by their respective target markets.
But the Charger is a great family car.
Is that some sort of car guy trivia question?...When did a four door family sedan become cool?...
Hopefully he doesn't go into the automotive industry. There hasn't been a full size 2 door since 1984, for a reason. And Every Charger/Impala SS owner (probably hundreds of thousands) not to mention 4 door AMG, BMW performance car would disagree. And not like the marauder, the marauder is like the Impala, only 9 years later. Which the Charger/300 made obsolete 2 years later.That car was just as stupid, just like a marauder, they put a few ponies under the hood, a badge or two and still wasn’t cool. It still has 2 TOO many doors. My son has a marketing degree and said see with the right plan you can sell anything to anyone. I’m so happy I grew up when I did, it was a great time and we only got a trophy when it was deserved. Again my opinion only.
Exactly, they should have used a new name rather than ruin a great memory.Hopefully he doesn't go into the automotive industry. There hasn't been a full size 2 door since 1984, for a reason.

That Charger vs Corvette is impressive on both sides. It has nothing (well, not as much) to do with hp alone, that is like saying the Corvette is a waste because a 150hp motorcycle can beat it.
Do a shuttle run, see which car can deliver 4 guys and their clubs/guns/food/fire-fighing gear/medicine... the fastest ;-)
If it wasn't for the SHAKER, I would have probably got a Scat Pack Charger, not a Challenger. Just because it has room for "family" and doors to make it easier to use, detracts zero from the car. (to me, and many others)
Like people that won't be caught dead owning a minivan, and instead have "SUVs" like a Acadia, or Enclave as example. Those ARE minivans with hinged instead of sliding doors, their ego is limiting their usefullness.
Sorry for the rant, but the Charger has the exact correct number of doors. Chrysler chose to make 4 versions of the same car. Initially aimed at replacing the Intrepid/Concorde/LHS with its huge interior.
If they would have named them all with new names, not throwback names. Nobody would comment on the Charger's looks or door count.

Do I wish they made a 2 door Charger, yes I do. But even more so, I wish they made a manual Charger.
I hear what you’re saying & I’ve had 4 Camaros & a Vette. A 4-door may not look cool, but it’s not necessarily something to be ashamed of. Just today I picked up some food at a local restaurant & the young man who brought it out said I had one of the nicest looking Chargers he’s seen. Don’t know if it’s a “cool” car but several younger people have said they like the car.
