Boo. Suppose I'm not interested in fuel economy? Who buys a sports car for economy? Boo.

We'll see. Are they going to get out of the truck business ??? Can't see v6's pulling big loads but then again nothing they're doing right surprises me. I hope it's not so.

I am not a fan of this move at all. I agree with all of your responses.

Maybe they're planning on replacing it with a smaller diesel?

That's a good point. Also, if I remember my car history correctly, didn't that event also mark the beginning of a consecutive line of REALLY crappy cars from Chrysler? We might be heading towards that again as well.

EDIT: I just had an additional thought ... You asked "what will they have to offer?" Answer: Minivans. Hooray, hooray.

I've read somewhere that the 4.7 will eventually be their new HEMI.

It's because of the new fuel efficiency laws. They need to maintain an average MPG...which you cant do with a 5.0+L v8. The day of the gas guzzling sports car are coming to an end soon, like it or not.

Dam it like 1970 all over again. Well in 4 years the Challenger be gone again? Buy now SRT's, Boss's and LS's. They might be worth big money in 25 years or so.
