New Dodge Challenger

So I am a little pissed. I love the new dodge charger. Its amazing looking and definatly fits in with the mustang and camaro as retro styled remakes. My problem is with dodge. They act like their cars are the cream of the crop. Just because you merged with Damlier doesn't mean you can price your cars as such.
There are plenty of examples of this in there entire line but the one that kills me is the challenger. They are only making it in the SRT8 version. Which is the top of the line performance line that they make. Thats it nothing else. No base line model, or non-SRT performance version. The starting base price $40k. They are going to kill that car before it can get off the ground. Its a play toy for the rich. Not just because its $40k, but a SRT is gonna suck on gas. They really should offer it in a base modle that can compete with the camaro and mustang.

Yeah this is a rant so sue me.

I would settle for owning the New Dodge Challenger with a small 6 cyl. engine!!! I don't know where you can put the hammer down with todays traffic. My Chrysler Sebring Convertible has a 2.5 six and delivers 26 mpg city and 33 mpg on the highway with enough power to smoke the tires. The dealers will kill the excitement for this vehicle when they start to add the "fair market" pricing like they did to the Prowler and PT Cruiser. I remember news stories of people paying $35,000 for a PT Cruiser when they first came out just to get their hands on one.

Give me great styling and I will be most pleased, forget the gas guzzlers under the hood.
