3.5 to a 3.6?

Thinking of switching my 3.5 to a 3.6. Was wondering if there is a huge difference. Thought of switching to an rt but payments would be to expensive. Can I get some opinions, thanks.

My friend has a 3.5 and I have a 3.6, I have driven both and hardly notice a difference. Well now I put in a CIA in mine, i notice a little bit more kick from mine, but totally not a big deal. though the 2011+ has a sexy tail end

Don't forget that you can get an 8-speed in the new 3.6's.

If you're going from V6 to V6, the engine should be one of the last things you consider, I've driven both, the 3.6 is faster, but the growl and sound of the 3.5 makes it feel "faster".

The reasons you should get the new one:

-taillights, IMO, best in the world, nothing can beat them.
-suspension, especially with performance suspension and steering option, it out handles the older gen base r/t's IMO, I've driven both. It also feels planted yet the ride is composed.
-the refinement, something the older gen's were missing, the interior is great in the newer ones.
-sound deadening, the car just feels tighter, better put together and the interior is very calm


Get a hemi if you can, if not, I say go all out and get a 2012 blacktop fully loaded with the 8 speed transmission.

Agreed! The Blacktop is an awesome package.

Its in your head haha an Intake hurts performance in most cases even K&N intakes, Unless its a true Cold Air Intake which gets air from outside the engine compartment. Otherwise it just makes the engine louder

a fully loaded blacktop or SXT will be more expensive than a base R/T....my 2011 R/T with backup/nav, wheels and tunes group, toxic orange paint, and sunroof was $34k MSRP, I got it brand new for $28k out the door with tax title and license
