    It's not a twisty road car. :dunno:

    It's a boat with a lot of horsepower. That Dodge won't let you completely disable the traction control is pure fucking fail.

    It sounds like a properly good muscle car then.

    Except the Mustang and Camaro are actually worth buying. They're both nice, fast cars that can accelerate and turn.

    No properly good muscle car has nanny electronics that can't be turned off.

    The Challenger is a nice car as well. In fact after experiencing them all I kind of prefer it.

    the problem is that it is competing with two cars that trounce it in every category.

    BIG DOT

    It's the very same car that debuted in 2005, with the same interior, same 25 y/o driving dynamics and a huge increase in sticker price.

    Why not? It looks great, inside and out, and it has plenty of go and grip. With the track package it's actually going to be an excellent enthusiast car.

    It's the best muscle car out there right now, all things considered. Yes the camaro is a little faster in a straight line... the mustang does better in just about every other category

    You should have bought mine a few months ago. It was very nice. :o

    If you did not like the Mustang when the redesign debuted in 2005 you will not like the 2010, there's nothing really different about it.

    the challenger is the best looking muscle car between this, camaro, and 'stang :bowdown:

    but :rofl: at the shittastic, fucking fail of an interior :rofl:


    everyone knows if u want a pretty balanced muscle car that can hang on the twisties, u go with the much lighter 'stang or the camaro with the i4w suspension, not this 2-ton behemoth. :rofl:

    Because it wipes the floor with the other two and the Camaro is too expensive and hard to get right now.

    The Challenger is also the only one in this thread that I see a different one driving around a few times a week.

    I've only seen one new Camaro out and about and no 2010 Mustangs. In fact the Ford dealer I drive past each day still has all their 2010s still sitting on the lot. The Dodge dealer regularly moves their Challengers.

    Same interior? What?

    Have you even bothered to drive one before saying such things?
