If you can afford a Charger Daytona then you'll be able get a nicely equipped Challenger. Remember the competition and their prices and what DCX has to do to compete.kirndog said:My god, they cannot push 43-45k! Hopefully they will run like the chargers do with different models etc. I couldn't afford the SRT, the Daytona with no extra's is my range.
If Dodge is really trying to take away from the Mustang crowd, then they have to try to appeal to the lower end scale i.e Mustang L.X etc. The totally pimped out GT or even the SVT Cobra doesn't run into the high 40's.
Basically what he said. I would think you can get a nicely equipt RT model in the low 30's. I would love an SRT version but I think a RT with a 5.7 liter HEMI in it will be what I can afford.ScottyJ said:Now this is just my opinion, but I think we need to keep in mind who the competition is for this car, Mustang. If Dodge is going to produce this car to compete with Shelby Mustang GT 500 only, they will have missed the mark COMPLETELY.
This car needs to be marketed as direct competition with Mustang (all models), if this is kept in mind by DC I firmly believe that the Challenger will be similar in price (structure) to the Mustang. I would think that the highest model SRT-8 (if they call it that) would be similar in price to the Mustang GT 500 and models would go down from there to mirror the Mustang models.
Again this is my opinion, what are your feelings? I know this will be the main discussion point until production date and price structure is announced. This keeps things fun while we are waiting though.
