Almost 80% of the Challenger is found in the 300/Charger/Magnum vehicles, about the only thing really different is the transmissions (manuals) and the body parts. There are more parts of course, but most of its external, not internal.

Let me say this....

It's your money, so you're free to do with it as you please.

I hope you enjoy your SRT8!

I would agree with all of that sir. The only thing I would add is that the Challenger seats feel like a Lazy boy chair and my camaro seats were quite uncomfortable. Better built... I would say yes! I got tired of bending down to get in, hitting my head on the ceiling, hearing road winds as I drove with the windows up, the crappy CD player and I also spoke to a friend who is a service advisor at Dodge and previously at Chevy...less claims of problems.

I have a 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 that I am trying to sell so I can get a Camaro 2SS, too bad we didn't know each other we could have made a swap
I only have 14,000 miles on it and it is loaded with everything except the sub wolfer in the trunk, and is in immaculate condition...............................

What's with all the people that like to come on here just to say they traded there terrible camaro in on a Challenger or Mustang. Frankly who cares. Now go and enjoy it and stop trying to make yourself believe you made the right choice by coming on here and telling us all just how the camaro sucks and the challenger is much better.

Really, unless someone is really hell bent on the looks of the challenger It makes no sense to buy one over a camaro or a mustang for that matter. They are both far superior cars in every right and cost less when you consider that you have to buy an SRT-8 to even try to compete with either one.

I see that as quicker not faster...I can't see a Jeep with the same exact engine as faster. It may be quicker, but I consider a faster vehicle one that has more HP and MORE torque. That's just me though

Jeep SRT-8 = 425hp/425ftlbs torque...

Same as the SRT-8 Challenger...

Frankly ...Everyone who posted a response cares in some way shape or form...lol, It's ok! I understand your anger. I am not attempting to justify my purchase! It was justified when I slammed on the pedal of the Chally and it threw my head back in the seat like a muscle car should as the tires screeeetched! Thanks for the response but no thanks! I didn't BASH the camaro in any way.. I respect both cars, but obviously there's more PROs to the Chally that I listed that the camaro doesn't have/offer. By the way...that reminds me...I forgot PUSH button start.. (NO KEY)

Correct. Which means it's not a faster car, it's quicker. On a dyno a FASTER car would have MORE HP, MORE TORQUE, MORE RWHP, and a FASTER TIME....the Jeep just has one of the above. Tomato TOmato...whatever...lol

If you couldn't do this in your Camaro, you were doing it wrong. However, congrats on the purchase - to each his own!

More HP/TQ does not equal faster. You are confusing speed with power.

You're bashing the camaro with all your little subtle digs. Just like this very post.
I don't care what car you buy. Enjoy it's your dime ,but why stuff it down our throat about how great the challenger is and also all the many reasons that the camaro is inferior to it. Bashing is bashing no matter how subtle. What do you have to gain by telling everyone on a camaro forum that you traded your camaro in on a challenger other than to try to get a rise out of someone.
