Regarding fuel economy, since it's a 6.1L you'd expect worse fuel economy
than the 5.7L Charger (17/25 city/highway).
But it's a shame Chrysler couldn't keep the multi-displacement system on the
bigger engine, since that makes for a bigger hit on fuel economy. You end
up with 14/20, the same fuel economy as my big, heavy Durango!
But that SRT8 has to be a blast to drive!
Is there an insurance hit with the SRT8 version compared to a normal Hemi
Haven't got the insurance bill yet but it probably won't be any bargain.
Re. gas mileage: just turned 350 miles and the average so far (according to
the computer) is 15.4, which includes both city and some road drives.
And yes, it's a blast to drive. The sounds that come from that thing under
hard acceleration are pure music! Sounds like a lot of it is coming from the
intake - and not just the exhaust.
