    Starting at $28,000. Will it be enough to steal some of the Mustang's thunder?

    Don't count on the 6.1L Hemi being the standard engine though. :o

    If it doesn't have a cheap model with a v-6 it won't touch or compete with 80% of mustang sales

    No cheap V6 model planned, and it's not meant to surpass Mustang sales. It will be a rare car with expected sales of 10,000 or so per year.

    Probably the 5.7L Hemi. The SRT-8 will have more displacement along with the usual interior, exterior, suspension and braking upgrades.

    No. Dodge already has enough niche cars. The strategy of having a rare, retro Challenger for purists and a very bold and practical Charger for the mainstream is a much more sound than two narrow and pricey coupes.
