Big Bad Magnum RT

2006 Dodge Magnum RT 4dr Wagon AWD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
I love this car. We were looking at downsizing from our SuperCrew Truck to get better fuel economy, hold our kids and we needed an AWD car/minivan as we live it's a snowbelt. We looked at Subaru (Legacy/forester), Chrysler (Pacifica/300C AWD), and several mini- vans. We test drove all the vehicles above and the Magnum RT AWD was the most impressive and best bang for your $. Our AWD Magnum is incredible in the snow & ice like you are on rails. This car is very impressive in both city and highway driving. It is comfortable and smooth driving, very quiet in the cabin and plenty of room for 4 people and luggage! If you like to be noticed this car will do that with many looks & thumbs up!
One Word HEMI (345HP) which just roars when you stomp on the throttle, AWD system is awesome, traction control, Dual exhaust note & engine growl, fuel mileage is awesome for highway with the MDS HEMI - overall avg. is approx. 23.5 MPG highay cruising at 65-70mph on 87 octane. One word AWESOME car
The car could have a MDS - multi displacement light to indicate when the motor deactivates to 4 cylinder mode to increase MPG in city driving - City avg 14 to 16 mpg. However, it is hard not to give the car full throttle in town and it is possible to reach 17 mpg city with this car!
