    Can't decide if it is the ugliest car I've ever seen, or the most understated elegent design to hide a beast of a car.
    There is no genuine justice in any scheme of feeding and coddling the loafer whose only ponderable energies are devoted wholly to reproduction. Nine-tenths of the rights he bellows for are really privileges and he does nothing to deserve them. We not only acquired a vast population of morons, we have inculcated all morons, old or young, with the doctrine that the decent and industrious people of the country are bound to support them for all time.-Menkin

    Dodge and their big ass mouth looking frontends. Nice looking car from the hood back. Just like their trucks and suv's, fugly, because of those frontends.

    This would make for a great hood ornament for the Dodge line of cars and trucks.

    LOL.....i had to scan the pic for the car Mac.....

    I don't like that the charger is just a magnum with a basic trunk. Also, the 'wild' front doesn't at all mesh with the 'business' back. It's like a reverse mullet.

    Going for an intro to the '06 Charger in a couple of weeks. They better have a ride & drive for us not just some inside specs BS. Since I work for a Dodge dealer I guess I am partiall but I think the charger is sexy. Plus it starts about 5K less than a 300 here in Canada. Hmmm..... I wonder what the appropriate forum discount would be for those wanting new rides to haul their audio gear.:) Since I'm not in car sales I'd say cost plus a couple hundred sounds fair. Just a note. This is not a concrete offer but I'd be willing to see what I could do on a case by case basis for any fellow canucks.

    The charger can't REMOTELY touch the style of the 300. The interior is identitical, but oh well. If you're talkin about bargains on 300's, I'll fly my ass out to Canada tomorrow......lol

    It kinda looks like the new Mustang a bit.

    I'm not really into American cars anymore.

    Its definitely a love it/hate it kind of styling.

    I actually think thats pretty cool. There are too many "vanilla" cars out there right now that try to not be offensive to anybody and appeal to everybody. I think these are pretty dull looking.

    Hell, when they first came out with the new look for the Dodge Ram back in '94 all other trucks were squared off and plain looking. Now theyve all got similar lines!

    Hats off to Dodge for making something differnt.

    It may not be everyones cup of tea, but I think its WONDERFUL compared to the 'bar of used soap' styling everyone has been doing the past decade.

    I think its a step in the right direction. A throwback feel, with some harder, straighter lines, vs the smooth, Irish Spring look I already mentioned.

    Cheers,

    It all comes down to what you think when you see final version live instead of pictures.

    The sexiest car right now for me is the Infiniti G35 Coupe. I'm a Nissan guy at heart but I can see past the brands (and it's not branded Nissan, just made by them :)) so it's not a bias thing either. This excludes of course the exotics and classics, I could list many cars sexier than the G35C if that wasn't the case.

    my wife has been bugging me on a daily basis to get her a Dodge Magnum ever since they came out..!!

    She goes by to look at them at least twice aweek..!
    she even rolled up in front of the house in one on a test drive, to "get my attention"!

    I must admit they are very cool.... even though I have always been a chevy man...

    The concepts for cars these days seems to be...
    one drawing...small changes...we`ve run out of ideas, so just copy that one-it sold a lot of units, type thing..


    The chrysler 300 looks a lot like the new Charger and the Magnum
    combined...
    They all have the same look with subtle differences.
    IMO

    I agree that it's a little weak that they (Chrysler) has pulled 3 (soon to be 4) different models out of basically the same vehicle.

    You have the order reversed. The Mangum and Charger were taken from the 300, not vice versa. I can say without a doubt that if the 300 wasn't so immensely successful, you wouldn't be seeing those other 3 models.
