Don't know about weight savings but my '70 tips the scale at about 3200. I hope they keep it in that ballpark, BUT I haven't got 425hp in my '70 either!!!
Sidenote; Thanks ekool for this new forum :D

If they have the Challenger at 3200...man, oh man..it would tear most everything out there a new porthole! Whether is has the 6.1L or 6.4L. Would love to have the 6.4L option!

3200 lbs, 425 hp sure would be nice, wouldnt it! My guess is more like 3900lbs if we are lucky.

And thanks for the compliments, glad you like the forum, thanks for being a member!

Last I heard( this from dodge eng.) was they were looking for a 400-500 lbs drop on the next gen platform..parts that were made in steel ( on this platform) would be made in aluminum on the LY...more parts sharing with mercedes should keep costs down and would allow the Challenger to compete with Rustang...

About 4,200 lbs. But oh, so comfortable and fast.

So I guess the Challenger could end up being around 3600 - 3700lbs

With the estimated power figures the car should move
Since it is being guesstimated that it should compete with the GT500 or whatever, they will need to make some metal changes for weight. Is the present SRT8 aluminum? Anyone know what the 392 is made of? Lighter frame, motor, tranny, rearend....make it light but enough weight to be driveable at 200mph.

They need to stop making so-called "performance cars" that weigh nearly 4000 pounds(GTO, Charger). If the new Challenger comes to be, looks similar to the concept, and weighs in at 34-3500 pounds I might buy one.
