I'm fortunate enough these days to have the ability to purchase a car where gas mileage isn't a priority. I love the power and handling my 2001 Challenger has. I got the 5.7 liter engine that has 376 horses. More than enough for me and anyone I personally think? There's quite a bit of savings when you give up the 6.1 liter engine, the stripe running down your hood, and doing without the GPS that comes with the SRT-8. My car cost about $10K less and have juuuuuuuust as much fun if it were the SRT-8. Test drive both...the RT and the SRT-8 then you decide.
I get about 22mpg with just me going down the road still feeling the power when you punch it! If you can afford the gas when it reaches $5 bucks a gallon and you're not constantly looking at your fuel guage, then go for it!
2011 Dodge ChallengerMom That Speeds - Fort Worth, TX01/25/2012
My kids are now in high school so i thought it would be time to treat my self. I have the 2011 Challenger R/T Classic . LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It's so comfy to ride in. The seats are so comfotable. The sound system is great. The power and handeling are INSANE. It doesn't get good gas milage but I knew that buying a car with almost 400hp. This car really gets up and goes. It handels very well in every day in town driving. The fact that people staire and ask about it all the time is a plus. If you want to treat your self to a car that makes you go WOOHOO every time you drive.....then get a Challenger.
I love everything about this car except for the fuel mileage. It's supposed to get 18 city but I'm averaging 13, and I'm really not that much of a lead-foot. I don't care though because it looks great, drives great, is great.
