OK, the price has been set for the Dodge Challenger and it's what everyone is talking about:
The fact the Muscle Car wars are heating up at this time fascinates us so much. And leaves us with so many questions:
1. With the recession on the horizon, is now a good time for a high-priced non-essential car?
2. With so many focused on reducing our dependency on foreign oil and the environment, is now a good time for a really powerful car that won't get particularly impressive on fuel economy or emissions?
3. With Mustang sales waning, does introduction a competitor make sense?
4. What sort of impact, if any, will the Challenger have on the Charger?
Yeah, those questions are totally one-sided, but that's OK. If you disagree, leave a comment. By the way, here are some stats:
For 2007, it looks like:
Dodge will sell about 130,000 Chargers, up about 2%
Ford will sell about 145,000 Mustang, down 18%
We predict good sales for Challenger and Camaro for maybe two years. After that, it'll be downhill. What do you think?
That's a 2008 Shelby GT. One of the 4,500 Mustang variations you can buy.
