Might be a little biased, but the Camaro looks lighter. Not so much smaller just a lighter more aggressive look. With all the round corners the Chally looks more laid back and heavy, like its too heavy to hold up its corners square and everything is sagging just a bit.
I like how they removed the **** crosshair grille that Dodge thinks fits the every car in there lineup. I like branding ,but ****; Im glad they decided to let up (on going for the last ten years) on the branding so the looks will not suffer.
I dont like the reverse light in the middle of the taillight assembly witht he Dodge name on it. The ducktail spoiler looks like a cheap afterthought with the SRT logo on there. I like the front lip spoiler on the front. The R/t pic looks like a SRT with Daytona Spoilers from a Daytona Charger R/T and stripes removed.........snore.
I still think the Camaro hold the light here. The people who love hardcore retro with love a Challenger, but people who like innovative design with heavy tribute to generations past will love the Camaro.
I smell aftermarket Cuda conversions though. I looks to simple with my eyes.
They'll probably keep the crosshair grill for lower trims.
I like the crosshair grill, personally.
It's kinda like Pontiac with its weird grill on everything. It wouldn't be a Pontiac if it didn't have that grill.
And I like hardcore retro, and like the Challenger. But I know better than to get a Dodge. Overpriced, underpowered, can't do crap to them, and it chugs gas like a fratboy at a keg party.
I like the homage paid to with a hardcore retro but the biggest thing about that is what is next for the next model in the line up a morph of the next generation? That would be bad as I don't like too many vehicles from the gas crunch era.
The Challenger looks great, there's no doubt about that, but it will be heavy. It is bigger than Camaro in every dimension except, perhaps, width. You can also expect it to be a few hundred pounds heavier as well. I don't really want the extra weight, which will matter even if it does have a Hemi, and I'm not so creaky even at my age that I need a coupe that is 57 inches tall.
