No big changes than 2012 in exception of the launch control and color selection. We were expecting some improvement on the auto gear.

However, in my opinion it remains ahead in the game.

As someone pointed out, the 426 aluminum crate motor is available and can easily be dropped in. So a 3800 lbs 426-powered Challenger making about 550 crank hp N/A is very doable. Some changes to the body (e.g., a wide-body kit) and it can also accommodate more meaty rear tires. Can it compete in the handling department? That would remain to be seen, as the Challenger is a bit more nose heavy than the Camaro.
I need to hear your car voice please

All indications is that the CHallenger will get the 8 speed auto in 15 when it switches to the new LA platfom along with bringing the interior/entertainment/safety features inline with the 300 and Charger.
