Challengers sell because they are great looking especially for those folks who still like the retro look, exude pure badassness, and FCA markets them well. Chevy could learn a thing or two.

No need to bash, I'm not a brand loyalist and love cars of all types and brands. They all have strengths and weaknesses. The Camaro is a great car that unfortunately is poorly if at all marketed. Mustang is the same but to a lesser extent. At least they have the whole "Bullett" thing even though nobody under the age of 50 knows what that is... lol still cooler than a bunch of "real" people sitting on a freeway learning that Chevy isn't as crappy as they may have thought.
I agree as far as retro goes the Challenger nailed it from the start ,they play the muscle car part well,but the novelty of retro is gone and i am glad .
I also love cars and all types and there is always bashing going on to some degree ,just look through the 95 plus pages of bashing on the refresh .I think the bashing is funny in a way ,it shows a lot about a person and how far they will go to tried to be heard ,as if anyone really cares or if it matters how they feel about the refresh . Don't like it don't buy and move on.

You just made me imagine what the 2019 SS refresh would look like with a chrome center bar instead of the metallic black.

People are extremely passionate about their cars, their brands, the models & heritage behind them. When things change for the better or worse they are going to be vocal about it. Don't like it, don't read it & scroll on.

I dont think retro is dead, the designers just need to do it correctly. In fact, rumor is that the VW microbus is coming back. Dodge did a great job with the Challenger and there's a reason it still looks good after 10 years. Timeless. It's hard for something that was designed to look dated to look dated... lol

I guess you could call the 911 Porsche retro because it's always looked the same, just tastefully mmodernzed over the years.

Is there a picture of an all black SS? Seems the cross bar on the grill would blend in with the black paint and might not look too bad.

I meant as far as Camaro,Mustang and Challenger goes retro is dead and they should move into the future .I heard about the VW and i believe the new Ford Bronco is going retro. I actually wouldn't mind seeing a retro Monte Carlo .

If you scroll through the pictures showing the convertible just below the paint colors, there is a good close up of the "flow-tie"....

I saw that too, thanks. With all the talk of how some do not like the refresh, I am one that thought the 4th gen was funny looking, but when the Z28 and SS came out, I knew I had to get it. Especially since I got to use it for patrol duties. I wish I still had the pics of it. Diehard Camaro fans will by it, even if it looks funny to them. I'm in wait and see mode for now.
