2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: Easy Rider
June 01, 2009
I've put about 600 highway miles on our 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T during the past few days and have found it to be a pretty agreeable companion. Credit goes to the quiet interior, relatively soft suspension tuning, long wheelbase, tall overdrive gearing (about 1,700 rpm rpm at 75 mph) and relaxed seating. And thanks to the 19-gallon fuel tank, you can go about 400 miles between fill-ups.
If I had to do a cross-country trip with one of our long-term cars, our Challenger would be pretty high on my list.
