They're showing it with a 1971 front grill. Not a fan of the taillights. Other than that, not much change except of course for the shorter wheelbase and 8 inches off the car. Not sold on it.

I really like the subtle exterior changes. Hate the interior. Steering wheel looks like those in the Camaro's. I love the plain jane ness of our current rides. Just more retro to me. That being said, I'll still have to see the interior in person

It looks like a rear camera or some sort of sensor is embedded in the center of the rear spoiler.

Well it's grown on me some since I viewed the first photo's leaked out last night. I'm still not sure about that lower grill (seems kind of too big to me) but I need to see one in person.

I do like the fact that they increased the HP a bit and put the 392 in the R/T. Hopefully the pricing is also more inline with an R/T (probably wishful thinking on my part). I saw in their media press release that they are claiming low 12's for the 8 speed automatic with the 6.4, which isn't bad for a stock car right off the lot.

I believe they all have back up camera's now.

Also not thrilled that my car will get walked by the new R/T. Wonder what the price point will be though.

Personally, I like it... I don't even mind the interior (it's grown on me)... I get and like the Retro thing, but personally thought they should spend a little more effort on the interior... can still be retro but have a modern flair... just always thought it was pure retro... (although I'm not complaining about mine)

When I'm ready to trade up... I certainly won't mind this. :)

Like someone above said... the Challenger got me interested in muscle cars again too ... I think this is keeping the interest alive.

My guess is the 6.4 version will still come in at around the price of the current Core or probably higher.

Now they just need to release the 2015 colors and prices...oh yeah and the 2015 Hellcat. I'm beginning to think the Hellcat is going to just be a mystical unicorn.

Having a 12 SRT I don't see much in the way of a HP increase of only 15.

Top speeds still the same. I don't think we have to worry about getting walked by the new R/T.

Basically I was looking for around 600HP.

What appears to me as being surprising is the large increase in sales of the Challengers and Chargers as opposed to Ford and Chevy in the same categories. Dodge has a huge lead in % increase.

I do like the improved exterior of the Charger.
