I may when the time comes to replace my jeep G/C get the awd dodge for the daily/winter car
Since it snows most of the winter where I live, my next car may be a sensible 4x4....like a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392.

I don't follow. Usually people want a hatch because of convenience/utility. A vert offers less of both (in terms of storage space/access). Am I missing something?

Yes, I get the added utility of a hatch, I lead with that. What I don't understand is why you would get the LESS practical version of the car.

I'll say it again. Before anyone ends their love for dodge muscle because the challenger was squishy. . try out the charger. Totes different performance. Being said. I enjoy driving the scat charger and GT '19 on the same roads for different reasons. If I want to scare the car next to me, drive the charger, if I want tight handling on turns, drive the gt. 😃
Charger??????????
.....Riiiiight!! A 4 door muscle car??????????

Isn't gonna happen....................:crazy:

Sold this and bought the '21 GT...........

I had considered a Charger before I ended up with my Mustang. Insurance is ultimately what convinced me to not do the Charger lol
They get stolen ask me how I know😳

Yes and I am in the Hellcat Forum as well and to date just in the forum 3 stolen so far this year. They are easy to steal that’s the problem.

My comment is of no value as I have alwaye had independent suspension cars.

Does live rear axle really make that much of a difference? Asking for a friend...

Not sure what you're going on about. I wrote the challenger is not the same car.

It makes a huge difference...and not a positive one. Nothing like having both rear wheels have opposite reactions to the same bump.

I considered the Challenger as well as the Mustang and I absolutely loved both. Looking at the challenger makes me weak at the knees, especially the 392 Widebody, not that the Mustang isn't a jaw dropper either. I got a better deal on the Mustang and the rev happy nature of the Coyote, better handling, and a dealer willing to make a deal sold me on the Mustang. I love what Dodge and Ford have done with their V8 monsters.
Sorry, but Chal doesn’t even come close to Stang in the looks department and prior to a couple of months ago when hubby got me on a Ford lot I didn’t think that at all.

Possible that the much superior interior of the Stang is coloring my viewpoint, but I don’t think so. And now I don’t even look twice at a Chal unless it’s to see how envious they are :crackup: . Heard a YouTube reviewer call Chal a big fat pig and few have nailed something as well as he did with that comment.

Sorry Mopar.

I think both cars are great looking but do kind of favor the MOPAR. I think both interiors are nowhere near as nice as they should be but the Mustang gets points for not grossly over-using fake suede. I hate that in the Chevy and Mopar.

Is your Stang a 401A with the dash and do you have the B&O? (Stereo kicks ass!). This top premium trim makes all the difference to me, but ours is non-PP so <$50k. For that money, interior is at least an 8 objectively, I think. And to me, again for the money, it’s a 10.
