Same as the SRT-8 Challenger...

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.

Honestly man please don't get your drawls all in a bunch..this is a forum..where different opinions, views, and comparisons run wild... If you see the spec comparison as bashing, that's just how you see it.. O WELL. If I wanted to stuff it someone's throat I would have started the post like "Screw the Camaro buy a Challenger" What does anyone have to gain in a forum...views, information, likes, dislikes, agreements, disagreements...etc etc This argument could last all year and I will still be driving a Chally and you will still be driving a Camaro. I will be the bigger man.

AS far as quality I think dodge surpasses, service chevy is better, reliability I would say equal, but I made sure to get an awesome warranty just in case..
Maybe their cars are different, but I've used a couple of Ram's in my line of work (driving the gnarliest gravel bush roads you can imagine) and they fell apart very quickly, especially the front suspensions and the transmissions. Though in all fairness every truck I've used in those conditions fell apart pretty quickly. Except my Toyota 1/4ton pickup. that thing is bulletproof. Literally. (but that's a whole 'nother story)

But Like I said, it's your money and your enjoyment. If you prefer the Challenger then enjoy your new ride. It's still a sweet ride compared to most of the vehicles you'll find on the road.

I almost bought an SRT8, but for one thing--the price. The navigation was the only interior thing I liked better on the Challenger. Why do you need a CD changer in the Camaro? I just use my IPOD and get more music that way than you can on any CD changer.

Granted, after installing Pedders Xa's I'm about the same total price, but my Camaro will blow the Challenger away handling wise (even without the Xa's).

Comparing muscle cars is like sex--it's ALL good, there's just some better than others!

Thanks Sir! Sounds like you may need the Ford F150 Raptor that thing seems to be a beast! lol, thanks for a rational educated response.
