This will definitely steal a few 'Stang Customers from ford, huh? Regardless of price, I'm still Loyal to the Camaro, plus-from all the photoshops I've seen, Camaro looks great in any color. You can't say that about the other two!
Regardless, I wish Chrysler luck, because their quality right now, like sucks and they really need help to prevent their downfall (Muahahahaha!!!!)

So Chrysler/Ford, grab as many customers as you can before the Camaro, because it's gonna have people kicking down doors!

PRESS RELEASE

Pricing for All-new 2009 Dodge Challenger to Start in Low $20s

* Three flavors: Dodge Challenger SE, Dodge Challenger R/T and Dodge Challenger SRT8®
* All-new five-passenger, two-door coupe available for under $22,000
* Available 5.7-liter HEMI® with five-speed automatic transmission for under $30,000
* Dodge dealerships now taking orders for the 2009 Dodge Challenger

Auburn Hills, Mich., Jun 9, 2008 - Dodge announced pricing today for the all-new 2009 Dodge Challenger. The U.S. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) will start at $21,995, which includes $675 for destination. Dodge dealers across the country are now taking orders for the 2009 Dodge Challenger, which will arrive this fall.

"The all-new 2009 Dodge Challenger gives customers a modern-day muscle machine at an incredible value," said Mike Accavitti, Director – Dodge Brand and SRT Global Marketing, Chrysler LLC. "For less than $22,000, we've brought Dodge Challenger back and loaded it with head-snapping styling and cutting-edge technology."

The Dodge Challenger is the first five-passenger two-door coupe produced from the Company's proven rear-wheel-drive platform that delivers the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300. Developed with Dodge's credo of "bold, powerful and capable," the 2009 Dodge Challenger is available in three models featuring head-turning styling, three available engine options and an automatic or manual transmission.


Maybe the base model price jump to the R/T is to slot in the Convertibles next Year!

It's a great starting price, I'll give them that much!
But the jump in pricing from one model to the next is a bit much....

Challenger SE: $21,995
Challenger R/T: $29,995
Challenger SRT8: $39,995 (plus $2100 gas guzzler tax)

It starts out affordable, but gets expensive in a hurry!

Octane, I hate to throw this out there and call you wrong, but the pre-order slips I was looking at for some of the ordered 09 R/T's are, at max, 27,880 with a 350$ destination. Price jump isn't THAT bad for adding the following UP from the SE: Full leather seating, standard 6 speaker sound system, 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic, 18" Chrome wheels, and obviously, a V8.

EDIT: Employee pricing, lol. They only saved 2k. Kinda blows.


We the people of 5thGen.org, in order to form a more perfect Camaro, establish horsepower, ensure domestic dominance, promote The General's welfare, and secure the blessings of quality to ourselves and fellow drivers, do ordain and establish this constitution of the united enthusiasts of Camaro.

So the Camaro should be able to...

Provide 300hp & 30 mpg from the V6 that will be offered, right?

I don't think the price jump is too bad considering what you get.

Meh, I've never been a big fan of the Challenger. I'm not too impressed.

Besides, with the way fuel is going, I can't afford TWO gas guzzlers, and I'm definately sporting my Camaro.
