I had a 2012 RT 6-speed manual and really liked it, had it 6 years and traded it on a new Ram 3500.
But also really missed the Challenger, so I bought a new 2021 Scat Shaker 6.4 6-speed last December, its a fun car.
Still have my Duster, which I rarely drive, and several other project cars in work.

There are literally tons of Challengers here in the Savannah, GA. and Hilton Head, S.C. areas. However, I've only seen 2 or 3 with the shaker in the past 5 or 6 years. What's up with that?

Also, Chargers outnumber Challengers by a wide margin here; even if you don't count Chargers operated by local and state law enforcement.

In my opinion, this Dodge Redeye has the best hood of all new cars. The shaker hood is my next favorite.

I sold this Challenger T/A 392 two years ago. It was probably the most fun I’ve had driving a performance car. I was only putting on 500 miles a year on it plus I wanted to get into an older Mopar.

No longer here.
TA would be my pick. Best looking of the group, and it has the right amount of power to get in trouble with.

A friend of mine has been trying to get me to buy a newer challenger. I know that they are more comfortable and run great, but I'm not good with technology stuff, he showed me all the things that his challenger has on it through the information center on the dash and it was mind boggling to me. Plus they are not cheap, I'm not ready for a big car payment at almost 63. I did think about it though.
I bought a 2021 Challenger R/T Scat Pack this past April. Fun car to drive. Never thought I would enjoy a new car but now I have two muscle cars: My 70 Duster and the new Challenger. Amazing to me how the Challenger make so much power (gets 22 MPG when I go easy on it) yet idles dead smooth where my Duster makes great power but lopes like a thrashing machine! Do what's in your heart and don't look back!

PS: Bought the car with 80 original miles on it. Original owner flipped it on arrival from the factory because the value went up 5K! Not unusual these days apparently.

We bought a '17 Scat Pack Challenger back in '19 with 3400 miles on it. This car has been flawless. Great cars!! Lots of power, can get decent mileage, sounds great, creature comforts and, we love this car. They are very comfortable on a long trip.
The newer ones really are the best of both worlds. We bought it outright and could sell it today for more than we paid for it.
I will say that if something bad were to happen and we needed to liquidate some assets it would be the first to go. I'm hanging on to my old stuff at all costs.

Tell your friend to enjoy his "bellybutton" Challenger. Go old school cool. I almost pulled the trigger a couple years ago on a new Challenger 1320 and I decided that there are just too damn many of them around. They all look similar and they're everywhere. I'd have to put a tennis ball on the antenna to make sure I go to the right car in a parking lot ;) Every punk in a Mustang will try to race you when you're just trying to do errands or go to work. I decided to go old school and have zero regrets! I probably would have sold or traded the Chally by now.
