Dodge should stay purely gas, let the rest of them all circle jerk over electric shit.

if Dodge wants to be able to sell cars to these countries and states that are going away from ICE sales in the next 10-14 years, they need to go electric. As I said once before, they aren't making cars for people like us, they are making cars for states like California

It’s the GREENIES hammering the SHIT out of EPA guidelines. FCA has paid Elon millions upon millions for Carbon Foot Print credits and possibly close to a billion with the entire mix of products now. And yeh I’m not pounding my chest for the Electric but holly crap the PERFORMANCE exhilaration your going to get our these cars will be insane. The G forces will be a thing most never have experienced. And the back road stick to the road capabilities with AWD will be just bad ass.

The write mentioned it resembled a Dodge Charger. Now if it resembles a real Charger, 68, 69, 70, I might have a close look at it.

Should the new Charger be bad ass looking and bad ass fast like 150 1/4 mile 8 second car then what😳. And WTF happens to the ICE values would be my curious speculation. I mean come on you have a factory car that just smokes everything for the most part wow beyond wow. And talk about feeling like King 😂. Yeh yeh I know it’s the greenies agenda but thank god Dodge wants to abuse the shit out of it and peel your eyelids back😁

I'm on the short list for the Tesla PU which I plan on flipping as soon as I get it. I will buy the new Dodge.

What happens during all those CA brown/black outs? Guess everyone should have generators and gasoline on hand.

The youtube video has a car under a cover. If thats going to be the same body style then it is wider looking than the current cars, the CGI stuff made the front grill look like the old chargers but with a different hood.

If they can make it look like the classic and still be fast, maybe ill get the wife to let me add another car because its going to be economical compared to the hellcat drinking 93 ever couple of days

Tesla and Lucid already have cars that will smoke a Demon.
Did you think Dodge was going to sit by and let that happen?

Just unfortunate they couldn't do a hybrid Hellcat/SS/Demon etc.
