2006 Dodge Charger SRT-8
Here's another look at the Intrepid successor, an all-new LX sedan, the Dodge Charger. Notice how the tail lights and rear fascia still resemble the second generation (1998 - 2004) Intrepids no matter how you look at it, and not modeled after the neo-classic variety "Dukes Of Hazard" rust bucket vehicles of similar namesake. However, the gaudy rear wing wasn't necessary. Most of us can agree that we see some 300M on the new Chrysler 300/300C hindquarters as well. The greenhouses...well...are "cab-rearward."

The price isn't too bad neither. $37,995 for 425 horsepower.

I'll wait until the 10 year depreciation hits one of these. Then I'll get one used.

I agree, Chrysler's work on this car is simply amazing in terms of both the style and amazing power... Nonetheless, I'm still saddened to see the Dodge Intrepid be discontinued; in fact, I was unpleasantly shocked with this information at the unveiling of the Charger at the Detroit Autoshow. I guess this is mainly because my first car is a 2000 black Dodge Intrepid base model(Which I still drive as I am currently only 17) and now I'll never have the chance to purchase a brand new R/T model. I just wish that Chrysler would've chose to keep producing the Intrepid R/T's with the 3.5 liter V6 in place of the Charger SE and SXT... Simply because these new Chargers should be equipped with the larger V8 motors. But, of course, this is just my opinion and probably wouldn't have been economically feasible in terms of production for Chrysler to maintain two full-size sedans under the same nameplate. In any case, farewell Intrepids!

The Charger seems to be a much lauded competitor to the current Ford Mustang in terms of pricing and basic design (nevermind the four-door stigma, it doesn't mean jack in reality). I personally still enjoy Intrepid's sleek shape and distinctive handling despite being picked on as a "front-drive muscle car." That's okay with me. I sold my 1994 and soon will replace it with a 1996 - 1997 edition with better electronics.
