2011 Dodge Charger

Now here’s something the automotive community has been waiting for. These are the first real shots of the new 2011 Dodge Charger as brought to you by Autoblog.com. Apparently these pics where nabbed on the set of the new Fast and the Furious 5 movie that is currently shooting in Puerto Rico. There has been a lot speculation as to the changes that would be made to the Charger during the redesign process. The changes however, although quite substantial are really not as drastic as people first thought.

The biggest and most obvious change to the 2011 Dodge Charger is the cars new rear end. A full wrap taillight assembly now engulfs the rear fascia and is very reminiscent of those found on the 1970 Dodge Charger. The rear deck lid and bumper have also been redesigned and incorporate a small duck-tail spoiler and a nicely integrated dual exhaust system.

Up front we can also see styling queues that have been lifted from those cars built between 1968 and 1970. Hood call-outs are now present and help showoff the 2011 Chargers more aggressive nose, headlamps and front end. Also take note of the absence of the Rams head hood logo that adorns previous 2010 models.

The Chargers interior changes seem to be the most drastic and although substantial, I can’t say that they’re jaw dropping. A new 3 spoke steering wheel can be seen along with a completely redesigned dash panel and center gauge stack. These cars are obviously pre-production models and I have no doubt that the new showroom 2011 Chargers will incorporate a little color, at least we’re hoping they will. The drab gray interiors that we’re all used to from Chrysler really need to be put down for good so as to give way to some much needed sportiness. This redesign is a big deal for Chrysler and even though it’s not considered a pony car like the Mustang, Challenger or Camaro it still needs to retain those 60’s muscle car roots that made the car famous. Hopefully the combination of the new 392 HEMI for the SRT8 model and the new styling queues will help give the new Charger a much needed push in the right direction.

    I really like the full-width taillight, even though I rather doubt the red bits on the decklid will actually light up (could be wrong, though–the Challenger’s whole strip lights up). The vast expanse of unadorned sheetmetal found on most decklids these days is one of my pet peeves about 21st-century car design.

    New tail lamps: Good, dramatic style hits sweet spot between retro and futuristic present. Reminds of a ’68 Road Runner/ Coronet/ Charger. Conveys Chrysler product, heritage, familiar, identity-memory tweaker and unique/ like no other car. Want to see w/o distracting white/ black.
