New 2014 2SS w/RS package

Well, I had my sights set on a ZL1 and was trying to get my better half to go along. After some haggling (as I just bought my new 2012 Ram Big Horn in Feb this yr) and calculating a compromise was met.....Just came home with my new 14 Black SS. It's beautiful! I was also looking at a 14 Challenger SRT8 Core and actually test drove one last night. Bottom line is that the SRT Core has 70 more HP, the core model's interior is cloth and cheap looking. The 14 2SS may have a little less power but the new design front/back and the interior has the leather, gauge pod, HID - to me all around a better value as they were almost exactly the same sticker price. Got home in the dark but tried to take some pics

Very clean.
It is also real similar to my '14.
I hope you enjoy it!

Sore Subject....
Yes!!! I would have loved to get a 1LE but they only come in stick. I lost my left leg right above the knee back in 82 and have been driving autos since. Also not interested in any hand controls just to have to shift.

That kinda pissed me off about that the 1LE only come in stick but you can get a ZL1 in auto....

And because I need an auto, the NPP Performance exhaust is not an option....but again, its on the ZL1 with an automatic....grrrr.

Anyway - with all of that, I still love the look of the 14. Guess I'll have to add my own goodies once the warranty expires....Maybe a Prochargr, long tube headers, Borla or Corsa catback..

Take a look at the 1LE suspension goodies offered in the GM performance catalog and the 3.91 gear set. Then keep your eyes out for some 1LE/ZL1 wheels to complete the package. You would have the best of all worlds then, automatic transmission and the handling abilities of the 1LE. The black looks fantastic, beautiful car!
