    4-doors do suck on a name like Charger.
    But they get AWD, more top speed, quicker 0-60 than the Challenger.

    I own a Challenger, but auto-makers are in the business to make money.
    I bet they sell 500 Chargers to every Challenger if not more.

    Charger is also supposed to be quicker in the quarter. Law enforcement will love them. At least where I live that's what they use.

    Yeah even my dad is talking about selling one of his Hemi cars to buy the new Hellcat challenger, I am trying to talk him out of that idea unless I buy the hemi car for myself! But he has 4 Hemi cars and I am sure the Hellcat would look great in his garage! Not sure I am liking the looks of that Charger with 4 doors! Just can't rap my muscle car brain around 4 doors! LOL! I will be going to the SEMA show in Vegas in November and hope to se some new super cars there.

    I bet if you took it for a blast, you'd forget about those other two doors. :D

    The Charger was designed for law enforcement. That's why it has 4 doors.

    I'll take the charger long before I'd take the challenger. For a family guy like me I love the extra doors!

    What can even come close to competing with the Hellcat Charger. No 4 door car from GM or Ford.

    I'd pick the Charger any day over the Challenger, just because the Challenger "should" be faster doesnt mean it is. When they both weigh 4400lbs i'll take the 4 door thanks.

    Sure I am going to catch all kinds of hell for this but...I don't understand why everyone is so impressed with it. Come one folks, it is a forced induction motor. They are known for making power. If one were to look around you would see that 700 hp is not all that impressive from a forced induction power plant....for instance here is a 4.8 liter tt ls making 900 horse power at 1 bar...at close to 2 bars on good gas it is making 1200....and this was on a junk yard motor with rusty cylinder walls, filed loose oe rings etc.

    I am seeing prices of 60k or so....would not be surprised if the dealers don't tack on some more. Anyhow, seriously doubt the owner of this Fairmont has ANYWHERE near that kinda cash in his ride....Hell, he could probably build 3 of them for what that Challenger is going out the door.....Is it a good thing one can buy this kinda of performance at a dealer in today's day & age? Sure is....but it is not really all that impressive....

    AND it passes smog, AND has A/C(?), and has AWD, traction control, 9 air bags, bluetooth, nav, ...the list goes on..probably stops on a dime too.

    oh yeah, the 707HP is from only 11 psi boost. Imagine what it could do at 14 psi (1BAR).

    I love the grunt...same with the new camaro's, but there sooo ugly i cant get over it. Its just taky lookin to me, but what do i know?...seems like here on the west coast at least most seem to have suffered the fate of most BMW's, mercs, 300's ect, and endup up doing nothing more than sitting in traffic with some gerk behind the wheel thinks he's sheets dont stank and still gets beat on by my beater chubby 350 like the pedal on the right is a real mystery or something. Dislike aside the challenger has always looked like it was doing 60 standing still, i hope in 25 years or so i can pick ona those up for pennys on the dollar and drop an oldfriend LA 440 in there :p
