its like they want to make a rolls but cant since they dont own the company.. man that is one.. weird car.. but the charger prototype and the current charger should be two door.. i just hate how the auto industry borrows from one another within family like ford and mercury.. selling the same cars with different badging.. its stupid.. i was watching history channel on the muscle cars and gm would fight withint it self for top spot with muscle cars.. now its like. hey let me borrow that pontiac or hey chevy can i see that crank
you mean like when mercedes benz borrowed the om616 engine from itself, added a cylinder and turbo charger and plunked it into their premium diesel model as the om617 turbo?
or them watering/scaling down the 116s styling for the 123?
theyre called sister ships, and theyve been around a long time.
and this isnt me saying that its ok that gm sold..
5)the grand am
6)the saturn ls series
all on the same platform, that may be excessive. but one or two sister models is nothing too uncommon.
chrysler had a nice set with the first lh chassis cars.
the eagle was sporty and a little weirder ("european") than the others
the chrysler was by far the prettiest and nicest
the dodge was the everymans version
i didnt like the second generation lh series cars, that 2.7 engine thing put me off. there is no reason for a $32k chrysler to have the same engine as their midsize... and we arent talking about the midsize being upmarket, they just cheaped out and threw that terrible engine in every car it'd fit in.
the 3.3 engine may have had 30 less hp on paper, but feels MUCH better on the road than the 2.7. not to mention the whole sludge in the timing chain fiasco.
and i dont see it as a copy, its a 300 reworked really freaking well if you ask me.
