The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in Sublime

This 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in Sublime with a Matte Black Hood was the subject of my street drive in the new Challenger in Oregon.

I have ben looking at the hp on the car, and the 1/4 mile. I found that the stock will do 11.2 at the track. I have a 2010 Camaro with 603 rwhp.

I bought the SRT 392. One of the best cars I've ever had. I love the roomy interior. If you're thinking Mustang or Camaro and you care about performance over your comfort. Just go for Corvett, why would buy a car with fake backseats?!. This is the best car performance and room wise!

All 3 of the currently American muscle cars are "Pigs" by the weight starndeards of the originals. It said OMG the Challenger is 400 pounds heavier than the Camaro or Mustang.

I understand the fondness of "OUR" cars, but all these American Muscle Cars have gained about 800 pounds since they first came out, and they are still roughly the same size. Grant you they are safer, but 800 pounds!!!

I will be buying a Challenger Hellcat for the reason it does have a real back seat AND it hauls ass! The back seats in the other two are for kids, over any length of time, at best.

Regular sized people will find them unconfortable.
Being over 6'3'' which is not considereed to be a big as it once was, short of the headroom being a tad shy in the Challengers backseat, I can sit back there normally with comfort.

Having the option of a Muscle Car that has Great Retro looks AND has a real back seat is a huge plus, and it ALSO has a real Trunk. The whole package is a deal and from what I have read, the cornering, stopping, 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile time differences between the 3 (Camaro, Mustang, Challenger) are simply negligable at best.

If a few pounds is such a big deals to you:

1. Leave your girlfriend, and the other couple you do things with at home, or have them take their own car together and follow you.

2. Lay off of the Cheese Burgers and Beer!

3. Buy a gen one Camaro, Mustang or Challenger and put a modern suspension underneath them.

The 3 Modern choices we have now are awesome in every respect "Styling" being the best.

I will say I'me very Disappointed with the Charger. A four Door Retro-Charger Muscle car would have been the cats ass, especially for the people who remember the first "Golden Age of Muscle Cars", and now have families, or Salespeople who are required to drive 4 door cars for work. Yes, the Charger has the grunt of the HellCat Engine, but that only impresive in short burst, it just looks like every other Aero-Designed car on the road.


Dodge needs a "Super Hellcat", with 426 ci of Supercharged heaven, and room for some 305mm - 335mm Rubber out back. (All four corners would be the best.)

Then your talking "Best there ever was Muscle Cars!"

At Least Go down swinging as the Cafe standards screw our cars up again.
