he August 2016 issue of Automobile ran an article entitled, "Future Cars." The article contains photos of the new 2019 Challenger and a 'Cuda convertible! See below. The new lighter models will share a rear-wheel drive platform with the Alfa Romeo Giulia and will continue to offer a V6 and Hemi engines (including a 750 hp Hellcat). According to the article, "the plan is for Dodge to be the all-American, value-priced alternative to Alfa Romeo, which is targeting BMW. The cautionary note is that since "FCA has delayed the launch of the Alfa Giulia, the Challenger may be delayed as well. Also, looming are the 2025 Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards. With Jeep and RAM accounting for 62% of FCA's U.S. sales, Marchionne might have some hard product decisions ahead." The power-to-weight of these lighter cars should be a big performance advantage. If these are how the 2019s will look, are you happy? I think that the new Challenger's chopped roofline looks more like a Camaro. Also, I would like to see more styling cues from the 1971 'Cuda, like the front fender "gills." I'm glad I have my retro-inspired 2009 SRT.
