Published the first image of the new Dodge Charger and ChallengerMarch 26, 2020
It seems that Ralph Gilles, the global designer of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and his team are using their time spent working from home productively.
The chief designer posted an interesting image on Instagram, which, according to him, presents the next-generation Dodge car. “We should never show the future product on social networks. This time I made an exception, because this experimental Dodge project of the future fell on a cutting table, ”the project manager wrote in the signature accompanying the sketch.
Gilles rejected this offer because “the designer decided to make the yellow splitter protection a permanent part of the topic.” Like many people, Ralph Gilles does not seem to appreciate the fact that some Dodge customers leave plastic dividers on their Challenger and Charger. Of course, the splitter is not the main reason that the manager rejected the project: in the end, the details could be easily erased in the photo editor. Nevertheless, Gilles expressed his opinion on these annoying splitter defenses.
As for the design sketch itself, it offers a radical departure from today’s Dodge Charger and Challenger, and this was to be expected. In the end, the current version of the LX / LD sedan has not changed much since its introduction in 2005 – and the same goes for the Challenger since 2008. Highlights include a flatter body, an aggressive front end that is dominated by a huge lower grille and a sharp splitter, ultra-thin double headlights on each side, a rounded windshield and a very muscular shoulder line.
Obviously, the design features of the concept car are exaggerated, as is always the case with sketches, but it is unlikely that anyone will object to the next generation of Charger or Challenger looking half as good as in the picture. However, one will have to wait until 2023 to find out if this design sketch had any effect on the formation of the successors of the current powerful Dodge cars.
