depends on the year of the Charger. If its the older body style, go with the v6. If its the newer body style srt8. But better than both is the SS

Everyone is going to have a different answer.... Test Drive them on the same day if possible, so it's still fresh in you mind for comparison....JMO

Why cars that are soooo different. Seems like an SS would be a better comparison to anything SRT. How did you get down to a V6 Camaro and a SRT8 Charger?

Those new Chargers are very nice BTW.

In my opinion depends do you want a family sporty car or a muscle car? The charger is nice, but I would have one as a Family car and a Camaro as "my" car.

Uh, since you could probably buy about two v6 Camaros for the price of once SRT8 Charger, I'm thinking you'll be ending up with the Camaro.

If gas/insurance is paid for by an outside party, SRT8. If not, go with Camaro. No questions asked.

No comparison...you need to compare the Camaro SS and the SRT8...Camaro all the way. My buddy has a Challenger SRT 392 Hemi...on paper it's quicker, but that's on paper.

This question is kinda goofy when your comparing a 392 hemi to a V6 camaro. That's a apples to grape fruit comparison. IMO the op should test drive all 4 of the current muscle cars that are all close performance wise(mustang 5.0,camaro SS,challenger 392 and charger 392) and see what he likes best.

Really? i guess if you want better gas mileage or HAVE to have a coupe regardless the Camaro may be better, but let's take a trip to reality here, ANY year Charger SRT is not only going to feel faster, it is absolutely going to rame a V6 Camaro in every performance category.

why would you look at a SRT8 Charger and a V6 Camaro. I'd be looking at an SS over the 2LT. I'd rather have a 1ss over a 2lt, you can add the 2 options and rs package. You can't really add the V8 engine on the V6's suspension, brakes, or chassis.
Look at an SS

I don't think it is.

So mom and dad are going to go out and buy you a $50k car, huh? And you live in one of the poorest states in the union, in a city with a median income of only $35k?

Right.

SRT8s are 45-50k
the Super Bee is 41k

Drove a loaded SRT8 Charger - very very nice car and very fast. Also Procharger is selling 392 kits with a diablo tuner so the aftermarket is starting to open up.

If you have a family or are looking at having one soon - go with the Charger.


For some reason you are listing a V6 Camaro. If you have a choice you might be able to swing a used ZL1. Or if you need new then go with a 2SS 1LE.

Cant go wrong with either but id probably opt for a new LS3 Camaro

Right.
The kid lives about five miles away from one of the top engineering schools in the southeast. Maybe his family makes several standard deviations above the median.

I really do not understand why these types of threads exist.My means of transportation is determined only by availability and my ability to pay for it in cash. Neither would I have asked for my parents to buy a nice car for me, nor would I have asked strangers for advice on which car to get. OP, if you wanted some advice, you really left out a lot of information. Are you paying on the car? Is your insurance in your name? What are your driving habits? Can you afford the fuel costs/maintenance/insurance? In your shoes, I would take the car money and invest it in myself. Get a degree or learn a new skill that will help you when you enter the workforce.
