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.
My car ROCKS!!! Had no intention of getting a Challenger when we went to Carmax. I was actually looking to get a Camaro. However, when we got to Carmax, they had two Challengers, and two Camaros. I had driven the Camaro before, but was looking for a very specific one. Once we went out to parking lot though, boom, there was this beautiful Challenger. It stood out above the others. Beautiful red with sparkles and black stripes. On top of that, it had the black leather interior I wanted, and a nice big Hemi engine. I love how much room it has inside. I do not feel cramped at all. This car was in perfect condition, inside and out. It drives like a dream, and the turning radius is fabulous! I can flip a u turn easy in less than two lanes.Smooth. The one and only negative thing I have to say is, that the Challenger along with the Camaro, have really bad blind spots. But that is an easy fix by using your side mirrors more. I LOVE MY CAR!!!!!
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!
The Dodge Challenger has been significantly updated for 2011 to be a top performer. Thanks to the powerful engine, exciting drive and refreshed interior, the 2011 Challenger's latest overhaul delivers a significant improvement over previous incarnations and gives a respectful nod to its muscle car lineage.
With many different feature packages to maximize personalization options, the 2011 Dodge Challenger outfits each trim level quite nicely. For anyone looking for a lot of convenience features, look to the SRT Plus trim. It is equipped with heated steering wheel, nappa leather seats, ventilated front seats, 8.4in Uconnect, rear parking sensors, backup camera and a garage door opener.
The Dodge Challenger has been improved significantly for the 2011 model year. Specifically, it has refined exterior style, new engine options, an upgraded suspension and an improved interior as well. The Challenger fully lives up to muscle car expectations and packs big V6 and V8 engines under the hood alongside rear-wheel drive. The handling is controlled and the steering is composed. Although it is more fuel efficient than its predecessors, the 2011 Challenger still struggles to stack up when it comes to fuel efficiency. Higher trim levels with bigger engines will run dry much quicker than the likes of the base model.
The 2011 Dodge Challenger received two new engine options. The standard powertrain on the 2011 Challenger is a 3.6L V6 engine that is capable of producing 305-horsepower. It can be swapped out for the 5.7L V8 engine or the 6.4L V8 engine, both of which significantly increase the Challenger's capabilities. In fact, the SRT-8 trim level comes the 6.4L V8 engine standard. All three engines can be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission with a six-speed manual option. All trim levels of the 2011 Challenger offer available rear-wheel drive.
The 2011 Challenger was already an intimidating presence on the road. After taking design cues from the classic 1971 Challenger, the front end of the vehicle is significantly more retro-inspired than its immediate predecessors. On the inside, the 2011 Challenger meets driver expectations, featuring modern amenities, comfortable seating and a quiet cabin. Pulse-quickening engine revs can be enjoyed when pushing the 2011 Challenger to accelerate quickly.
