    I think you nailed it, but I have one caveat that I believe to be true. That is the entire front end of the Challenger (I believe it's true for the Charger as well) was specifically engineered, tested and retested to maximize air flow under the hood and specifically targeting the supercharger to mitigate much higher operating temperatures. FCA completely balks at anything that will reduce the engineered air flow.

    Having said that and if what you've heard is true about fog lights, unless they are dove tailed into the front splitter, as an example, it would not be far fetched to assume a redesign of the front facia. To date, I not have seen, read, or heard of a redesign.

    Rumor has it the hood will have the windshield washers on the outside,, and the srt emblem on the trunk will have the hellcat logo...

    yea i was reading another thread on this site regarding the front fascia and according to RS (he is always dead on) no redesign in the way of fog lights at all. Will remain the same.
