Well, it's too early to know for sure, I have not seen the new interior in person yet. That being said I love my Yellow Jacket's interior!!! The new steering wheel they put into the '12 SRT and up cars is way better than my '08 SRT's wheel by a long shot!!! I like the 730 media center too, voice activated Nav is too cool. The interior overall still has a retro vibe but oh so comfortable and easy to use.
I like the new interior way more. But you also have to keep in mind that I was not alive in the 70s and have never been in a 70s Challenger. I think they are trying to appeal to a younger buyer with the new interior. Maybe their thinking is that those people that love the retro look already have purchased a Challenger.
It'll probably get the vented seats from the 300/Charger SRT. Those are damn nice, too!
The interior change reminds me the one 300 underwent from 2010 to 2011: the look and feel of the new materials, and the craftsmanship are much superior, but the outgoing interior design was cleaner, more cohesive and elegantly styled.
I'll reserve judgement on the new ones until I get to see one in person. But, I do like my 2009 interior a lot. I have not had that many cars over my 40 years of driving and my '09 has more "features" than any of my previous cars (except my wife's Lexus which I don't like at all).
I am currently trying to work out how I can buy a 2015 R/T (cloth seats of course) and keep my 2009. I'd hate to give it up.
It's a nice interior,but it doesn't fit the retro exterior styling .I like the simplicity of the current models.A little tweak to the radio display area,and more quality around the console,and that would have been it.Theres just too much going on,dash wise.the seats and door panels are really nice though.
well the old interior has am/fm and CD (rarely use the CD) and I just stated using the jack to plug an MP3 player into so that is about as high tech as I go.
the 09 interior on my SE is practical, well laid out, functional, minimalistic yet attractive.
new interior is quite cool looking but I'm a man of simple tastes and satisfactions
