I wasn't a part of this group when this poll was started, but in hindsight, I probably would have given the LX-based Challenger 5 years tops. Although the LX was a relatively new (~3 years) platform when the Challenger was introduced, the tech it was derived from was not- about 20% of the engineering was sourced directly from Mercedes, including the front and rear suspensions, 5AT, stability control, steering systems and other smaller components. Just the fact that MOPAR released the car in the midst of the auto industry meltdown was surprising enough to me. Whether owners want to admit it or not, the FCA merger has breathed new life into the car- the upgraded interior, revised exterior styling, and of course the insane powertrain options all owe to FCA deciding that Dodge would be the muscle car destination. With Ford and GM deciding that the Camaro and Mustang would become legitimate sports car alternatives, that left Dodge to claim the muscle car realm as it's own- and they have done so with a vengeance. Still, I don't see the party lasting too many years from this point- cheap gas won't last forever, eventually the market will turn toward a more fuel-efficient future and FCA will have to do the same to remain competitive. Besides that- the US market is hell-bent on becoming SUV/crossover saturated, and passenger cars are the ones taking the brunt of the collateral damage. Look at Chrysler- the only car they offer is the 300, and it's hopelessly outdated. The best thing they offer with a Chrysler nameplate is the Pacifica minivan, and that's generating buzz primarily because of the plug-in hybrid option. Jeeps still kill it because they are totally SUV-centric, with a pickup truck on the horizon. As much as I love my Durango, Dodge cannot sustain itself on smoky burnouts and YEEHAW! horsepower alone- long term. Just like the muscle car era of the 60's, the party will be over before we know it, and those who don't plan for the future will be left in the cold. You can laugh at GM and Ford all you want for developing cars like EcoBoost 4 and 6 cylinder engines and Volts/Bolt EV's, but they have plans for the future- FCA has a plug-in minivan. Time to get with the program.
