Would You Buy a 4-Cylinder Camaro, Challenger or Mustang?

Speaking at the New York Auto Show, GM’s Vice Chairman Bob Lutz revealed that General Motors is considering a 4-cylinder for the new Chevrolet Camaro if fuel prices continue to hike. In particular, Lutz said that the drivetrain under consideration is the 260 Hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit from the Pontiac Solstice GXP. How would v-6 and v-8 american hungry buyers react to american muscle cars with 4 cylinders, even though they're high powered turbo engines. See when you think of muscle car, you think big engine, loud noise and fast car. So, how would it look when american cars are switching to 4 cylinders which will be quiet and not as fast. Should american companies continue to put big engines in them since they are muscle cars and represent a look to the car or go with popular trends and put 4 cylinder engines in them. My question is simple, how would you react to 4 cylinder engines in camaro,mustang and challenger and would you buy them?[Source Car Scoop]

Interior Pictures of Dodge Challenger

Well they official pictures of the interior of the new Dodge Challenger are out and unfortunately are very disappointing. With the ugly knobs and cheap plastic look is just pathetic. This car was getting so much hype and what not and now seems to be disappointing on the appearance part. The shifter looks decent with leather around it. [Source Auto Unleashed]
