I sat in an R/T with a pistol grip shifter and I thought it felt like crap too. Not to mention the whole interior felt and looked cheap. I've also sat and driven a 2010 Mustang an I can attest to how awesome the interior quality is now.

The Challenger is a great boulevard cruiser.....that's about it. I just don't see an impressive bang for the buck aftermarket support for these cars that could be turning many of them into total monsters. I'd love to have one alongside the Stang, for sure. But I couldn't see myself dumping money into modding it. It'd be just for styling down the street.

I thought the Challenger interior was nice. I like the telescoping steering wheel but it does not tilt down far enough for me.

Challengers are WAY overpriced! Did we forget that it is a chrysler product?? If they were priced at 20,000 and below I would consider it. but that would be just for looks and not performance

I've heard a couple of rumors that the SRT is being axed along w/ all Mopar's "muscle" series. I don't have any definitive evidence to the rumor, except a buddy of mine is wrench and gets a lot of "hear say" about the industry as a whole. He also mentioned to me that the body panels for the new camaro are made of site be a separate, independent company. He heard, and remember "rumor" that the company went bust and took everything w/ them, so the camaro is being nixed after the lot of them already built are sold. Has anyone heard anything about either, either on the net or mags?

Went to a Dodge dealership today... If you drive a Challenger you had better not EVER want to change lanes because they dont have a blind spot they have a blind SIDE.. and hard to see out the rear also...The Challenger is also not a Pony car it is just a 2 door car , a Charger would be a better choice ...If we get the new 5.0 engine .. hands down the Mustang is the better choice ...With the current engine .. I would still rather have the Mustang ..

2010 Chevrolet Camaro V-6
Base Price $24,000 (est)

Transmissions 6-speed manual; 6-speed automatic
Curb weight (dist f/r) 3750 lb (mfr)
Wheelbase 112.3 in
Length x width x height 190.4 x 75.5 x 54.2 in

"Chevy is currently recording 0-to-60-mph sprints of about 6.1 sec or so, but the goal is to break the six-second barrier. Give us a car, guys. We'll get you the 5.9-sec run you're after. Top speed, by the way, is an electronically limited 155 mph. Yes, with the V-6. Both transmissions are superb, the automatic responding quickly to shift-button commands and the manual smooth and slick (pedals are well-placed for heel-and-toe downshifts)."

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...ive/index.html

I like the new Stang, except for the black lower molding (prefer body color) and the shape of the tail lights. I especially like the reviews regarding the fit and finish, handling and overall refinement of the new Stang. Going to wait and see what Ford comes up with for the Camaro SS. Hoping for a Mach1 or BOSS 302 edition with 450 hp. Dodge needs to put the Challenger on a diet and improve the handling. Also if you look at the MT review of the 2010 V6 Camaro it sounds like Chevy did their homework with a good blend of speed, comfort, handling and fit and finish.

That would explain why the Dodge dealers around here are loading up on SRTs. I have yet to se a V6 Challenger on any of the lots and the maybe 1 or 2 R/Ts. Most have 3 or 4 SRTs. Didn't make sense to me since I figure the R/T and SE would sell more as most people would be able to better afford them.

Sale person said the RTs are gone as quick as they get them in, dont last 2 days usually.. But he did say they getting a $8k mark up .. so go figure

must be where you live..????

where I live ( Cincinnati,Ohio ) you can buy them all day long at sticker .. maybe even under sticker ..???? I haven't gone that far yet.. ( to see how low they will go as I am not that serious YET..!!! )
but real nice looking car.. what you all are forgetting..
this is a real 4 or 5 person car.. not a 2 person car that has a back seat that only the kids can get into the back .. like my 06 Mustang GT.. nobody has even been in the back seats.. a adult person of any real height can't fit back there..

would I buy one.. ????

I might .. but I would like to give it a few more years so they can work the bugs out..
ie: like the water leaks on the 05 to 08 Mustangs.. yes mine is fixed now.. and I thought I was going to be one of the lucky ones without the problem.. WRONG..!!!!! it got me when the warranty was almost out.. ( I had a smell with no leak ) the fix is * TSB-08-26-7 *
which is newer than TSB-07-14-6 .. the last one I seen posted on these forums..

bottom line.. real nice looking car.. and has plenty of power for just being stock..
mods.. trust me.. if people want them.. they will come.. so even more HP..

the Shelby.. come on.. at 50K.. that is a joke.. you all know that.. I would love to have one .. so don't get me wrong.. but 50K.. WOW.. that is A LOT of $$$$$$ for a car...
and for the most part.. it is just a Mustang with a better engine in it.. ( keyword .. for the most part )
now if Ford wanted say around ~40K for a Shelby.. I would sell my GT in a heart beat and buy a new Shelby.. but not at 50.. so I think I will wait it out .. let the big 3 fight it out.. " so to speak.. lol " and see who has the best bang for the buck in a year or so..

JMO only.. and to be taken as such...

But all those were specs on the sixxer Camaro. I don't see the sixxer Camaro pwning any newer GT or Challenger (except the base model). And if the GT does get a 4V 5.0 for 2011, I don't see the SS pwning that either. JMO.

Really? They have employee discount on them in my area with another grand off with bonus cash. That is about $3000 below sticker and they are not moving. The dealers keep dealer trading the R/Ts for SRTs. I think they could sell the R/Ts but the SRTs are out of most peoples price range.

The verts were canceled but that's about it (as in, the vert challenger and camaro). There's PLENTY of people that want these cars for them to keep making them for quite some time.

The Challenger SRT is hands down a more comfortable car than the mustang GT. Like Rex said, you can actually fit people in the back seat. it handles great, for how big it is...I think some lowering springs would help it a lot though. Our biggest complaint is the blind spot and rear view (not mirror!!!) ...They are both great cars though. The mustang feels like a slot car compared to the challenger, although the chally will go around any corner just as fast as a GT, if not faster. I myself was surprised at what the SRT's could do while at the SRT Track Experience. The chargers (they didn't have challengers last fall, but they handle almost identical) did have body roll, but that's where the ESP came in and stopped the roll while we pushed the car harder. I think many people become afraid as soon as the body rolls, but in SRT's you can push way past the roll. It will take any turn as fast as you want and grip. Sometimes the mustang rolls less, but feels less grippy...I don't know how to explain it. If you read all this I'm proud of you....I love both cars!!!!

Here is a nice link about the car.. ( yeah I know there are a million link on them )

http://www.edmunds.com/il/dodge/chal...id=gc47736483#

I like this comment on that link..
" The second, a 525-hp flat-black Challenger Super-stock concept, is shod with massive Goodyear slicks and is good for one thing — knocking off 11.0-second quarter-mile runs. "

which is what Dodge done in the " muscle car" days.. make a car with primer paint only and slicks stock on them... so a person could take it straight to the race track after you bought it.. I remember my older brother was going to buy one.. but my Dad talked him out of it.. then he was going to buy a Hemi Road Runner... but our Dad also talked him out of that also... he bough a van instead .. makes me sick thinking about that now.. as it does my brother... lol


the car really looks like a old 'Cuda in a way to me.. as a 16 to 25 year old kid.. my dream car was a 'Cuda.. but I couldn't find one to save my life..!!!! ahahahah

oh well.. maybe in a few years I will buy one.. again.. when they have " the bugs " worked out on them...!!!!!
