Next generation Dodge Challenger could arrive as early as 2014
Little is known about the Dodge Challenger set to arrive in 2014 but reports indicate that it will continue to be based on the “same DNA” as the Chrysler 300. That leads us to believe that the next generation Challenger will still be based on the same sedan architecture as the 300 and Charger which, sadly, means that it will likely still be a larger muscle car. Rumors have been floating around the Mopar enthusiast community that there is a smaller, lighter Challenger that would have more compact dimensions – taking a direct shot at the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. The Challenger has often been criticized for its hefty weight and those who want to compete more closely with the Mustang and Camaro have been praying for a lighter Challenger in the next generation. Unfortunately, unless there is some sort of substantial redesign of the chassis – we can expect the next generation Challenger to be similar in weight to the current models.
