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.
