If you had a choice between similarly equipped '11s or '12s, go with the newer model year. There were lots of little standard additions to the Charger, like a color EVIC, steering wheel paddles, bolstered sport seats, 8sp transmission, etc. Also the Dodge badge added the red hash marks, if that matters I don't know why these weren't all included on the '11, but what can you do.

Badges? We don't need no steenking BADGES!

Of course, you could always just order a badge for yourself...I don't think they're very expensive.

Just remember, the sticker price is never the bottom dollar price. Have fun with the negotiate and don't be afraid to walk.

Other than the Engine/Transmission difference for the V6, the only other difference I can think of between the 2011 and 2012+ cars is color EVIC display started in 2012.
What are you talking about?? I just rented a 2011 Dodge Charger and IT HAD a Pentastar V6. It didnot have the 8-speed as you stated it had the old 5 speed. It was still a fantastic rental car. The second best one I've ever rented next to a 2012 Chrysler 300 with V6/8speed combo.
