'09 Challenger brochure hits the web, retro overload ensues

http://www.autoblog.com/2008/06/29/0...erload-ensues/

I actually like the way the blue R/T model looks. I like the Track Pack Option. Im glad Dodge grabbed the same idea I hoped for in the Camaro. I hope GM does the same or better for the SS model.

I might go grab a brochure at the dealership this week. 3.92 ratio with the track pack and 20" wheels.

The interior isn't that bad looking.

GM should offer a track pack and a stripped down option.

That "MyGig" radio is awesome. GM better find a way to put something like that in the Camaro. To be able to rip cd's right into the radio is fantastic. I make my own cd's & would love to not have my mp3 player plugged in. The Camaro also needs the PB starter & steering wheel mounted controls too.

C'mon, GM - don't let us down.......

I'm for the Track Pack. No interest in MyGig. This is a toy, not a luxury barge.

Wow. That's the most I've been impressed with the Challenger. I actually like the R/T better than the SRT8. And the different stripes? Cool, like the side stripes, and the Grand Sport-type hood stripes.

The hood looks cool to me, but I can see it being polarizing, either love it or hate it.

Push Button start - c'mon GM, AT LEAST make it an option, I want it.

That radio is nice. Something like that should be an option on the Camaro, too.

GM, keep in mind, that the good thing about coming out last, is that you can match, and then one-up, the competition. Now is not the time to limit options.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"
