I will get to the points that describe the 2013 Challenger that I recently bought. First, it is as close as any muscle car manufacturer has came to looking like the original that it was named after. I have found that the ride couldn't get much better, and since I chose a manual shift... they got it right. It's close shift pattern and response with the clutch couldn't get any better.(hill assist isn't needed). I personally wouldn't want a smaller version of it, then it would be like the mustang that is small and should be at least the size of say a 70' era. It has plenty of get up and go and looking over that dash and beyond the hood gives the feeling that you can't get with many others that are within an affordable range. Yes, the more you get with the option packages, the price goes up, but even a base model would be a pleaser. It's interior is comfortable, but I think they could have provided more in the way of lighting up the instrument cluster and even a glove box light, etc. to keep up with the rest of the beast. They provide a low lit cup holder light which is a nice touch but that;s really about it. Overall the pros outweigh the cons and I seriously think years to come they will appreciate in value just like the ones they were born from.

Ok, so I just bought a 2013 R/T Plus...I think I could stop this review with saying it's hands down the best of the muscle cars that I've driven. Not the fastest, not the best handling, but pure muscle and aesthetics...this car cannot be beat! I test drove the Camaro (Liked it. I grew up with an IROC Z28), I drove a Mustang (not a fan) and then I pulled up on the lot to drive the R/T. I was so smooth and powerful, the interior nice (I'm 6'3) and when I took it by the gas station, EVERYONE stopped me. It's simply what I wanted in a car. Powerful, attractive and muscle. Funny thing is, women who neither like or car for muscle cars have complimented it. Best ever.

I wanted to get my wife a car with better tech and one that still goes Vvrrooommm. She had been driving an 04 mustang convertible. First I was dead set on another mustang. I even test drove many and thought I had found the car. We left a dealership and she saw a used challenger and commented 'that's fun'. Soon I was comparing prices, options, and test driving challengers. I was very surprised at the comfort and power of the RT. I was more surprised at the price difference. The mustang has a lot of extra flair and more horsepower. My wife has no intention of street racing so I can live without it as well as I saved five plus grand. I ended up getting the RT classic. It's a big car. Lots of backseat and trunk. Very comfortable. It really moves when you want it to. There's a wide sunroof just like my Jeep Commander and she loves the tech. It has an unusual auto manual shift either on the shifter or gamer like paddles behind the steering wheel. I do not car for the paddles. I don't care much for the upgraded sound system either. Apparently the SRT has the best audio upgrade. Too bad it's not in the RT. As much as I enjoyed the 2013 mustang, it was less retro and more unnecessary parts. The challenger I got, black with white stripes down the sides is solid retro gorgeous. There are many little afterthoughts inside like small spaces for change or lip balm, whatever. The Stang was missing these things. I would call the Challenger user friendly, borderline luxury, and very fun to drive. When she comes home from work I make excuses to hit up the grocery store.

Had the SXT for 4 weeks so far it has been awesome. Ride is very smooth and handles well for big car has good power and so far averaging 23.5 miles a gallon which is better than I thought I would get. Don't see a lot of them on the road like mustangs and camaro so I think Challenger stands out.

I purchased my Dodge Challenger about 3 weeks and have loved every minute of driving. From eye catching good looks to modern conveniences of u connect and blue tooth. Ease of steering wheel controls and voice command help you keep your hands on the wheel. Sport mode is a real trip as you feel the power under your foot unleashed and pushing you into the cushioned comfortable seats. My kiddos love the DVD player and the spacious back seat. Very rare for a sports car and the trunk space is awesome. Great family sports car.
