    The reincarnated Charger isn't even out yet and they already have two special editions planned. One is the 425HP SRT-8, and now there's this one, the Daytona.

    The Daytona comes in two classic 1970 Dodge colors, Go ManGo! and Top Banana. In addition it has throwback body stripes and spoiler, body color engine cover and body color accented interior with heavily bolstered sports seats, and a louder, throatier exhaust. It features the Hemi V8 with slightly more power (350hp/390ft-lbs) with a five speed automatic. A manual will be offered later. The pricing will be somewhere between the new Mustang and new GTO with more equipment (and practicality) than both of them.

    Very tough looking muscle car, more so than the 06 V8 Impala SS, 94-96 Impala SS and the recently passed (and very slow) Mercury Marauder.

    I honestly love it. Fast, square and ugly, just like the original Chargers. The interiors on the Chrysler Hemi cars is just as nice as the new GTO too.

    I would drive one in yellow. :hs:

    You're just jealous because your box isn't stylish. :o ;)

    There's a guy in my complex with a Burnt Orange last gen F150 with "Boss 5.4" tags on the fender and shitty exhaust. :ugh:

    The LX interiors are pretty much devoid of offensive cheap plastic.

    "The leather is soft, an area Chrysler has overlooked in the past, and the materials have both a high-quality look and feel."

    Even Edmunds had to really nitpick to find something wrong with it. :o

    The falcon is tired now IMO. The only thing it has going for it is the turbo motor.

    Your forgot that it looks better, is built better, drives better, and is trimmed a million times better than anything Ford offers here.
