You would have fooled me if you told me this was a Charger. The video mentioned about taking styling ques from the Charger...Are they sure they just didn't clone it?

I like it better then the current charger design. This is actually what the current charger should have been. The avenger should havebeen brought back with a whole new design, a younger sportier version of its old self.

I agree... this is what the Charger should have been. If Chrysler puts the SRT-4 engine in this with RWD and MT... I might have to seriously look at a Chrysler product for once.

concepts are usually built to draw you in....but deep down you know it won't end up looking the same way after production. In this case, I'm not drawn in, and I can imagine that this is exactly the way the car will look at production. Not too much forward thinking on this one....just a more fuel efficient version of the rest of the Dodge clan.

It works for BMW, why not Dodge? Choose your american brute force in any size you like. I think it is a smart move for an alternative on the mid size fwd market. I bet they sell lots of these.

this is now the smallest car in their line-up, correct?...given that they replaced the neon with the "Caliber", what I think looks like a swollen PT-Cruiser/HHR

I don't think this is a concept, I believe this is a production car to replace the stratus

so Dodge got rid of the three smaller cars in their lineup....Neon, Stratus and Avenger and replaced them with a HHR entry level car, and this Avenger. Hmmm. Interesting.

I just dont like how Dodge is implementing that frigging GRILL across ALL their cars and trucks.. christ I'm one for brand image recongition but damn its sad when if you show someone just the front grill they can't identify if the car is a car or a truck!
Well we do have the Challenger coming up soon so hehehehehehehehe they are somewhat forgiven!
