    13 mpg city is not necessarily "geared for mileage". Did you see the video of the Challenger running at the track? It can definitely get em smokin!!

    But yeah, that engine is boring, I agree. I know that driving one would be fun.

    That is an awesome car, no two ways about it. It looks and sounds fantastic. I read somewhere on the net Chrysler was planning production of 35,000 for the '09 Challenger but the demand for them is apparently so great they have upped that to 50,000. The base 5.7 Hemi R/T will make 375 HP now, up from the current 340 HP (350 HP with the Road and Track package). They re-designed the heads, upped the compression and put in a different cam to get the power increase. Also they plan to add a pistol grip shifter for the 6-speed manual. Jay's black SRT Challenger is sweet. Chrysler has really hit a home run with this car.

    Doesn't seem too impressive to me. Stock LS1 4th gens were hitting high 12s and got over 28 highway mpg (with the six speed) 6 years ago. The Challenger looks really cool, but it's still a pig.

    More like a moose. 4,100 lbs? :eek:

    It's a nice car, but IMO, the Charger SRT8 is a much better looking car even though it's a 4 door. There's a black one at the dealership near here and I drool over it every time I see it.
