Thinking of selling my 2012 Challenger SRT8 and joining the Camaro club.

Just as the title says, thinking about joining the club. Test drove an inferno orange 2013 SS/RS today and it was nice.

Love the SRT8 as it is a torquey beast but the Camaro is awesome too.

Decisions, decisions.........

Changing things up would be nice. They are just now figuring out how to tune the SRT8 392s on the 2011 and newer models but there is just something about the Camaro that I love.

heck with what the trade-in value of your SRT-8 might be if its still in excellent condition with low-moderate miles, you could probably pick up a 1LE

I had a 2010 Challenger, now drive a Camaro. Both are cool cars. The Camaro is definately the best handling pony car. Challenger is a bit more retro, the Camaro is a bit more sporty. Hated to give up the Challenger, but love my new Camaro.

I thought of going for a Challenger, ad even a GT500 I'm holding on for a 427 Camaro for 2014. It may be wishful thinking but I think its going to happen. If it doesn't I'll just keep my car.

I love all three cars (Challenger, Mustang, and Camaro) but prefer the Camaro the most.

Never been a Mustang fan though I respect the heritage. I am just glad we have some muscle cars to choose from these days.

I sold a 2010 Challenger SRT8 6MT. Too Big! I am now on my second Camaro SS with no regrets! The Challenger just felt too big and clumsy.

I looked at challenger myself as I always wanted a hemi, but I wanted convertible - if you compare upper end Camaro (ZL1) no comparison, Camaro has way more power 580 hp! Of course the cost is more. The SRT8 cost more than the standard SS.

Gotcha. I was thinking SS only. Supposely Dodge is coming out with a 6.2 supercharger in 2014. Of course, it will probably lag behind both Ford and Chevy as always.

The SS may edge out the SRT8 in performance due to weight, but I have not looked at the new specs. If you want a ride in a supercharge car maybe we can get together and I will give you a ride. My car has a little more hp than the ZL1, but it would give you a comparison.

2013 blue ray 2ss rs

The 2013's are nice, bought one in Nov last year. I have a question, what's the difference if any with the body style from 2010 to 2013, it looks like the 2010 is boxier looking, right or wrong ? We actually could have got a 2012 2ss RS but decided on the 2013, i'm glad i made the decision to go with the newer technology, and in my opinion another year for refinement.
