Intrepid's Replacement In 05
It's sad to know that the production of the Dodge Intrepid, Chrysler Concorde, and Chrysler 300M have offically discontinued. But what will be replacing the Intrepid and Concorde in 2005?
We already know that there will be a 2005 Dodge Magnum and 2005 Chrysler 300 (replacing the 300M). I don't really think that Magnum is a replacement. Would it be considered an addition??
I'm hoping for a 2005/06 Dodge Charger. Motor Trend reported that Dodge will produce the Charger in 06 in place of the Intrepid, and Chrysler will produce the Airflite in place of the Concorde in 05. Their website reads as follows:
"2006 Dodge Charger: Rear-drive sedan will replace the cab-forward Intrepid. The Charger is expected to offer 3.7L V-6 and 4.7L V-8 engine option, with the Charger R/T featuring the 5.7L Hemi V-8."
"2005 Chrysler Airflite: Large, luxury sedan shares the rear-drive chassis with the 300C but wears 1950s-inspired styling."
I hope Motor Trend is right. The Chrager and Airflite concepts look amazing and, in my opinion, would be the perfect replacements, especially with a HEMI. Why haven't we heard anything about these two models from DaimlerChrysler??
Does anyone have any more information on the Charger and/or Airflite?? Please let us know.
