"Significant" like "all new" in the automotive world is a term without a definition. Given the market pressures of needing a new 300 on the market as we speak, the reality that Cerberus funded precious little development, and Fiat being more focused on readying its wares to be sold as Dodges, "significant" could more likely be minor updates. Does bolting in a new V6 equal significant? The Challenger was to have been riding on the "new" platform and yet it is largely the old platform with a few minor adjustments.
This isn't a clean-sheet redesign by any stretch of the imagination. :sad2:
I'm hoping that "significant" really means significant, but given Chrysler's tenuous position...
