this is a healthy discussion guys.. so long as we keep it all calm and respectful. i have no particular brand loyalty personally. i usually go with whatever that's best bang for your buck, and look of the vehicle also is a strong determining factor. back when i bought my 06 in 2007, it was the shizzle on the block, because 1. it looked bad ass. 2. it has 4 doors 3. enormous amount of power for what you pay for.
but fast forward to 2012, it simply isn't as competitive as other choices that you have available to you today (ie 5.0, Camaro.. etc). i think these discussions are healthy for car makers to keep on innovating. i have no problem walking across the street and buy a Mustang 5.0 or an SS if that fit my checklist better. and i'll say it again that if i were to shop for a sporty muscle car today, i would probably get the Boss or the 5.0. but i am not because buying another car is about as far down my current priority list.
i do hope Dodge will continue improving because believe it or not, i too agree that it's falling behind on the power/price/performance war between its competititors, and yes it's "IMO" yadi yada. i still like my SRT, but my next car might very well be another brand if Dodge doesn't fulfil my checklist of price/performance/power. that and i probably won't be needing a 4 door anymore, consider i have another fuel efficient familiy SUV for that.
In my opinion (yes, just mine) this discussion is about the future of SRT, not whether you like where they are today.
In 2006, SRT was a game changer. Today, they have a comfortable customer base (as some have expressed)...perhaps not much more.
Where are they going in the future?
Or perhaps (the point of the thread), where should they be going?
If the auto world has changed so much in the past 6 years since SRT showed up in a major way, where do folks think they should they go from here in the next 6 years?
This isn't a bash or defend SRT today thread...it's a where should they go tomorrow thread.
