    CNBC or MSNBC, one of them leaked complete images yesterday. I think most will find this very anticlimactic. I was about as "blown away" by the Challenger update.

    I like the idea that the magnetic shocks will be available on the SS. With a drop of about 200lbs and the new direct injection V8, it should make for a very very interesting 1LE package - 455hp, magnashocks and lighter weight. Essentially something to go up against the 392 market and appealing because of a drop top for some.

    Very unimpressive...i thought it was a whole new redesign......they just copied Dodge and made subtle changes....to the 95% of people who dont follow cars they wont be able to tell the difference between a 15 and a 16

    and the top power is blah......it will tie the 5.0, 392 within a 10th of a second.....why not go big since they lowered the weight by 200lbs....why not go 500hp

    unimpressed......looks like they wont have a competitor to the 13/14 gt500 and 15/16 HC......thats 4 years+ being 2nd and now 3rd

    i was hoping for the early rumors of a 1970 camaro look......something 100% new.....they are just like Dodge now.....same car for 10+ years is on the horizon for Chevy and Dodge

    i guess they think they got the look right like Dodge does on the Challenger.....why change what works

    For sure, I like to stay hip on the "competition". GM's tactics in the muscle car game have confused the crap out of me over the last 25+ years. It's depressing..I'm a GM guy.

    I'm in for a 70's-esque RS/SS with a NA 454. The futuristic space ship, modern corporate image styling, makes my brain hurt.

    for 2018 the challenger will change....they cant make the same car for 10+ years.....its been too long already

    i heard the 2018 challenger will be retro 1980 challenger(but with less HP because of Cafe)

    maybe they will kill the name and make a 100% new car and use the Cuda name......

    i think if Chevy could do a retro 1970 they would have a winner.......hard to make a small car like that in todays crash test dimensions i suppose..

    i feel bad for Camaro guys.....i dont get why its considered a new Gen...its the same car.....i guess for 15 were onto a new gen of Challenger?.........and 2011 was another new gen?.....

    at least Ford guys got a 100% new Mustang....like it or hate it....its new and exciting


    the HC really timed the market perfectly......right in between Ford/Chevy not having anything to compete for years.....the HC will be done in 3 years before Ford/Chevy has anything

    Yes, always like it when anyone brings out a performance car. If I had Jay Leno's budget there would certainly be a GT350 in the garage. Even for the fiercest brand loyalist, at a minimum you want to keep close tabs on what the competition is doing...

    I would be surprised if we don't see both the GT350 and 2016 Camaro show up on Jay Leno's garage. Both are exciting new updates. Yes, the Camaro may still be based on the ever popular 69 Camaro, but the lighter platform, magnetic shocks and direct injection engine promise a lot of performance gains.
