What stuck out for me was that the review says:
On the highway, the Challenger likes a minimum of 80 miles per hour in
What?!? Seriously? The thing is geared that high? Hello 4.10 gears or
greater! You'll need them to get those two tons moving. At least fans of
the Challenger will love that. Do they make 6.00 gears? Maybe the
smaller engine won't be so bad with gears like that.
Seriously though, I like the over all style & looks of the Challenger
but that's about it. I'm not real big on the LEDs that surround the tail
lights at night, especially if following one at a car length or two, or
is that just the Charger?
The interior didn't look so bad but I'd have to see one in person before
I have an opinion on that.
The Camaro is the homely one. I'll keep my lightly used, lowly '09 v6
automatic 'Stang over both the Camaro and the Challenger. Yeah, I'm on a
Slightly off topic...
Just got my duals (GT take offs) put on today, and I couldn't have cut
my bumper more perfectly. Damn, I was sweating that one. Ha ha, I cut
the bumper before I had possession of the mufflers. Whew! Don't waste
your time on finding that template, I did, and I would have made the cut
in the wrong place using it.
Next will be an SCT programmer to firm up the shifts, and of course for
the performance tunes. I couldn't find a decent v6 with a 5 speed.
I thought the same thing too. Keep it in 6th and drop that thing down
to 55mph and it would probably starting chugging.
What do you mean "smaller engine"? This year's SRY comes with 388
cubes and last year's was 36X something, both offering plenty of
I believe that to just be the new Challenger. But get used to it, the
more efficient LED's are taking over.
I think the Camaro [exterior] looks good, but is another GM case of
style over function.
I'd be interested to hear how much the mods help.
