A True, Bonafide Charger!
By Chairman of da Bored on
2009 Dodge Charger SRT-8 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)
This is IT, man! If you want a big, burly, unapologetic All-American car (yeah I know it was built in Canada, but still) that shoots a middle finger to any sort of political or social correctness, this is your car. With its lowered stance, wide tires, deep front air dam and raised rear spoiler, it has the looks that strike fear in small children - yet can still fit 4 adults comfortably (5 if you squeeze) with all their luggage and a soft enough ride for a nice long road trip. Try that in a Camaro or a Mustang - it ain't happenin'!
The 6.1 L Hemi with its bellowing dual exhausts - when all its 425 horses are summoned to duty, releases a sound that is absolutely intoxicating. And you'd better know exactly where you're going when doing so, because you're gonna get there VERY quickly. The MyGig option is highly recommended.
Wish gas MPG could be better, but it's just the nature of the beast, and it's not unreasonable considering the performance. Brake dust from the Brembos get a little annoying at times. And Dodge, expand the color selections in the SRT line. Only 4-5 colors to choose from is unacceptable.
