2021 R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody
The Slant 6 was a gutless turd. It could tow OK as long as quick acceleration wasn't your goal. The new DOHC 24 valve Inline 6 will be massively better, night and day. The Challenger is a great car, hopefully the next gen won't follow the other two down the wrong styling path.Yeah, we love our '19 R/T. So, the awesome ponycar is to be cancelled now.? Or, is it only being monkeyed with by plugging an inline six cylinder?
Our '63 Dodge Dart station wagon had an inline six cylinder in it, a 173 CID slant six with three-on-the-tree when I was a second grade kid. Was a year end left over when we got it in 'late '63. It was still around when I learned to drive in '71 and acceleration wouldn't pull the hat from off your head. It's understood that this proposed six cylinder engine is supposed to be more enthusiastic than that ol' wheezer was, but it's still a comedown not to be endured.
The usually much longer stroke is a big part of it and usually at a lower rpm. I remember we did a 300 straight 6 to a similar year 302 in a mid 80's Ford 4x4 4 spd manual at the shop I worked at. My Boss told him it would actually be worse pulling a Cattle trailer and it was. They are also glass smooth at idle but any horsepower takes careful designing. That being said, the Pentastar was very well designed for torque, pulls hills and a 1000 pound trailer very well.Please explain
GotchaThe usually much longer stroke is a big part of it and usually at a lower rpm.
Impossible. By definition a ‘muscle car’ has a frame. That is the clear and only guideline. What you think is irrelevant. A Crown Vic is more of a muscle car than a Challenger.I don't think a Challenger is a Pony Car. It's too big and heavy. It's a Muscle Car and a Mustang is a Pony Car. Although there are no clear guidelines.
Explain to us how a Chrysler B body is consistently called a muscle car with its unibody structure.Impossible. By definition a ‘muscle car’ has a frame. That is the clear and only guideline. What you think is irrelevant. A Crown Vic is more of a muscle car than a Challenger.
They are all pony cars and have been for almost 60 years.
That same article said:According to hotcars.com the main difference between a pony car and a muscle car is good handling versus straight line power.
