While biking home yesterday I went past a brand-new Dodge Charger sitting outside of someone’s house and I had to take a second look. It’s a nice looking car and does a pretty good job updating the classic Charger muscle car look. This new version shares some design elements with the Dodge HEMIs that have been around for a couple of years. The release of another American-style big engine, gas hungry, power car shows that Dodge is not ready to throw in the towel against the forces of rising fuel prices. It seems pretty ludicrous to me that anyone would buy these things when it costs about $54 to fill one up with gas! I did a little research and they actually get better gas mileage than I expected, though.
