That's all Dodge needed, more ugly shit on the road....... IMO their entire design department should be shot.

We'll at least their keeping with the 'company look' cause along with that 'Calibur' ummm yeah......

I'll never understand Dodge's mentality. The whole 'putting in the Hemi' when fuel costs are one of the most highly discussed issues in the automotive market just blows my mind. I don't know how they can honestly see that being a marketable idea unless they are strickly aiming at the NASCAR/WWE/TRAILER COURT/JOE DIRT type demographic and even at that, who's going to pay those vehicle costs.

That 'Hornet' is the ugliest thing I thing I've ever seen as far as a vehicle. Way to go Dodge!!

The Hemi sure hasn't hurt sales of the 300C or Magnum with that drivetrain. Most are being sold at MSRP, with no incentives. Dealers in my area (SE Michigan) can't get enough of them. I don't see it as any different than those who choose to buy a big SUV that swills fuel. Is that big a vehicle (or that powerful of a vehicle) necessary ? Nope, but there's hopefully something out there for everyone in the marketplace.

That's my point though, why put those huge engines in the majority of their vehicle market? There's NO NEED for that kind of wasted power and fuel.

I can't disagree with you, but the market does determine what sells/what doesn't. Apparently there are plenty of buyers who don't care about the waste of resources.
