2011 Dodge Challenger Interior

Can somebody please tell me why Dodge is so in love with putting drab gray interiors in their cars? What you are seeing here is an interior shot of the new 2011 Dodge Challenger and unfortunately it’s not as exciting as I would have hoped. One of the main criticisms of the redesigned Challenger, when released in 2008, was an interior that was lifted directly from the Charger, Magnum (now defunct) and Chrysler 300 sedan. It was functional, but not overly exciting as it lacked the visceral “POP” of the automobiles exterior.

2010 Dodge Challenger Interior – Not much different.

We knew that for 2011 Dodge was going to give the exterior a few redesigned highlights, but more importantly was the much anticipated updated interior. Thanks to Left Lane News we can finally see what Dodge had in mind. A new refaced gauge cluster, 3-spoke steering wheel and aluminum pedals are about all we get for this go around, and although a bit sportier than the original, it still doesn’t cut the mustard as far as I’m concerned. The Challenger is a beautiful car on the outside that deserves much better on the inside, especially since it’s a premium price car. A loaded SRT8 for example will set you back a cool $45,000, not exactly chump change, and when compared to other cars at that price point, the interiors of not only the Challenger, but most Chrysler products is simply not up to snuff.

    …plastic, plastic, plastic…….what an ugly interior!

    Dodge seems to be trying really hard not to scare its share holders – and I doubt the people who designed this interior can be terribly pleased with themselves.

    The aluminum pedals might not even be an across-the-board thing–you can get them on a ’10.
    Honestly, I’m not seeing a huge change there, aside from the wheel. Certainly nothing that justifies the price increase that’s coming.

    I actually like the old wheel better. The new interior is a step back, from an already “meh” place.

    lets hope they dont take the same approach with the new charger !

    BEAUTIFUL INTERIOR,GRAY SOLID COLOR, TASTEFUL, NO CHEEZY WOOD,OR TOO MUCH CHROME. VERY TASTEFUL, VERY SPORTY, VERY WELL DONE!!! CHRYSLER IS ALWAYS GOOD WITH INTERIORS AND EXTERIORS AS WELL. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK IF THEY LET YOU.

    I think its fine. I agree with Arthur, it doesn’t need to look like a Lincoln town car inside. Its a spot sedan. What do you expect?

  8. Owen says:

    remember, the reason why the price is going up is there are improvements under the hood

    Chrysler is a joke! Building a glut of some of the most unwanted cars on the planet. All of this retro nonsense is banal, pretentious and unoriginal. The current Challenger is by NO means a beautiful car (bloated, mis proportioned, ugly cheap interior just like the original had); the original Challenger wasn’t much better on the outside with its hacked midsize chassis.

    With Chrysler vehicles always being at the bottom of JD Powers and other customer rating systems, I can’t imagine anyone considering these vehicles. Chrysler seriously needs to dump all of their “ghetto/hiphop appealing” vehicles. Get some modern, fuel efficient vehicles in their lineup with decent modern styling. Chrysler could definitely get some superb design ideas by looking at truly beautiful cars like the Tesla S, most premium european and Lexus and Infinity designs.

    And most of all: Chrysler needs to build cars that have quality. Quality has never been one of Chrysler’s attributes.
