2010 Dodge Challenger R/T 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
We bought a Challenger R/T 5.7L Hemi after a British friend told me what exceptional cars they are - he's a die-hard fan of the movie "Vanishing Point". I wanted a Hemi but frankly the Chrysler 300C seemed overpriced. We'd had a 300 V/6 Touring that was nice but not fully satisfying. The R/T is superior to the 300 in every way; craftsmanship, power, handling, even comfort & ride. It's a great car for long trips and we always arrive refreshed. Very stable & quiet at speed. Nice LED interior accent lighting. It's been a real attention- getter & ppl still gather around it. Nicely finished everywhere. It has an actual top speed of over 165 mph, limited to 140. Our best car ever for fun & long trips.
Legendary Hemi power; strong acceleration, smooth ride, quick, stable handling, lumbar support seats, pwr windows seal shut, quiet at speed, efficient dash layout. Interior LED accent lts. Nothing cheap used. 19-27 mpg w/MDS & 5 spd auto-stick. Auto-on headlts. Excellent standard stereo. Big trunk.
Driver's side seat release for rear entry, solved on '11 models. Even more braking power.
