The 8 speed will rip the ZL1 a new one. 6 speed manual might not be that dramatic.

They haven't announced static numbers yet, 600+ is what they've written.



This sounds very exciting.

Time for the 6th gen ZL1 (if made) to up its game. I'm kind of surprised GM hasn't already. It would be very simple to go over 600 with just a smaller pulley and a factory CAI (like the Z28). Make it standard for 15 (or should have for 14) and sell the parts as upgrades for the previous years.

Now let's see if Dodge blows it by sticking skinny tires on the car like the SRT (and even RT). I know it says bigger tires, so we will see.

I'm sure it's fast. Not sure it makes the junk the rest of the car is made of worth it.

I said the same thing about the v8 SS camaros, where I thought GM could have tweaked out a few more horses by making small adjustments. But I wonder if the engineers want to keep a certain percentage of margin relative to engine or component failure?? I love how modern muscle competition is in full effect.

I have always loved the look of the Challenger but when I was debating muscle cars it really was not in the mix because of it's performance. This might get the Mopar fans something to cheer about because they need it. That is one angry bunch of people over there! Going through some of their forums and all I could think of was how pissed off they are at the Chevy and Fords just because they are on a different level. I am glad to be a ZL1 owner and have a forum that makes you feel good when you log off!

I love seeing this muscle car era in my lifetime as I think it may go away with all the BULLSHIT going on in DC.

It may well be quicker than a stock ZL1...in a straight line. (I believe that it still has a solid axle).
So is the existing Ford Mustang GT500, but we already know that, and we are still much happier with the far superior chassis, suspension and IRS of the ZL1. Many other design and comforts are also superior.
Also as we already know, pretty much every automotive magazine that performed comparisons of the GT500 to our ZL1s selected ours as the overall best car. I am guessing that the same will happen if they compare us to the Hellcat.

I find it flattering that so many very good muscle cars from Ford and Chrysler, and they honestly are good cars in some ways, still want to try to outdo the amazing engineering and overall performance that GM painstakingly put into the ZL1.

I can't speak for anyone but myself, but I'm a Camaro person before a straight line drag person.
The ZL1 is my only sound choice. And, as we've seen mant C5 members do, it can be modded to run very quick quarter mile times if that's your preference.
I see the ZL1 as a very, very, strong performance package, with the potential to run with almost anything on the road if you want to modify it.

No SRT product has had a solid axle. 300, Charger, Challenger, Grand Cherokee, Viper. Sorry to break your heart. Lol... Naanaanaanaabooboo LOL

I love the performance app that displays boost, AFR , I/C Temp and IAT all on an easy to read page on the main page. Blows away the stupid 4 gauge pod we have.

Looks like it will be a solid car. Likely quicker than current ZL1s on the drag strip, not likely faster on road courses, but who knows yet. But I agree with what other have said, glad the Chrysler guys are getting a car that puts them in the mix. many have been a bitter bunch for a long time, truly their forums can be fairly negative compared to many Ive read. I would still buy a ZL1 over any other similar offering for a number of reasons, but appearance is one...just love how the ZL1 looks and its stance.

I, for one, luv it! Yeah, the ZL1 handles very well, but I'm a horsepower junkie! My only question is, what will the hellcat weigh? The challenger is already a very heavy car. Look what all that blower stuff added to the weight of the Camaro.

The ZL1 is the road/track star with the mag-ride and excellent balance.
The GT500 wins the drag races.
What will the Challenger be aiming for ?
