2013 Dodge Challenger R/T 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)
Review
R/T base with the 6spd manual, Sound Group II stereo, HID headlights, and a sunroof. This thing is quick. So far, I've seen an avg. of 4.85 seconds on the 0-60 timer in the info center. The transmission shifts smooth and precise, excellent for stock. Love the pistol grip. The torque curve is as flat as Montana, and twice as big. This thing sounds amazing for a stock exhaust, nice growl under acceleration, but barely audible at highway speeds. Excellent ride quality, and it's library quiet at 70 mph. HID headlights are amazing, both low & high beams. The stereo is also excellent, plenty of bass. Never seen less than 19 mpg, and a peak of 23 so far.
Favorite Features
HEMI, slick shifting 6spd, & that mean exhaust note. 0-60 timer right in the info center (not sure how accurate it is). Excellent gas mileage. Comfortable seats. A 44oz cup will fit in the cup holder, and a second one will also fit securely, albeit at a slight angle. Bluetooth audio works well, and has good sound quality. Huge trunk, room for several bodies. Firm, but compliant ride; it handles the twisties quite well for a 4,000+ lb car. Gotta love the push button starter. The Sound Group II Boston Acoustics stereo is amazing. The HID headlights are bi-xenon (both high & low beams), and they work very well... not just a gimmick. Automatic climate control is a nice luxury feature.
Suggested Improvements
The voice recognition will not recognize the word "home". I had to change it to "house" in my phone. There needs to be a way to turn off the text message alert feature. without losing call functionality. It gets old quick having it break into the music every time I get a text. I disabled text messaging in my phone to solve this, and switched to Google Hangouts instead. Either the steering wheel needs about another 2 or 3" of telescope, or power adjust pedals that will move the same distance toward the firewall would be very nice. The base HEMI needs to come with at least 450 hp. Why do the Ram trucks get 395 hp, and the Challenger only get 375? Why.... WHY?
