There is no way that is true. The numbers don't just add up, plus I have driven a few V6 Chargers and they are much faster than that. I think 7.5 is very realistic, but maybe even faster. Like I said, my Lincoln is very similar in both power and weight and does 0-60 in under 7.Moparitis said:I am afraid anyone expecting 7s is going to be very disappointed; I have read reports that mentioned 9.3 while comparing the SE to a Ford 500 at about mid 8s. It is very hard to believe it requires 9.3 for the SE AND that the 500 would cut an 8.5. I have done only one test with mine and not using the autostick feature and it was about a 9 plus. All along I had felt I would have been delighted with a mid 8, but it may not do that, time will tell. Seems I recall in the one test I made it ran up to about 45 mph in 1st before changing to 2nd; that might be improved by using the AS and causing it to change at about 30-35 mph.
Not to the general public, but rental car fleets get the 2.7 and I'm sure thats the times he got(moporitis). the 300 touring runs high sevens with the 4 speed auto, so I'm thinking mid to low 7's with the 5-speed...Big Country said:I definitely think the V-6 versions will be quicker than 9 seconds. I just can't see that happening. It's possible, but I sure hope not. And The Charger only comes with the 3.5 V-6 as the base engine, the 2.7 isn't even offerred.
yes, some magazines and internet articles said mid or high 7´s.I would imagine mid to high 7's. The Charger is a heavy car, even with 250hp in the SE and SXT, it's gonna take every one of those ponies to hit the mid 7's. Personally, I feel the SE and SXT Chargers are awesome deals. Especially the SE. Has decent power with the 3.5 V-6, decent gas mileage, and a ton of features for a great price. I think Dodge marketing needs to push the value, of the SE and SXT more, because I'm willing to bet a lot of people don't realize just how much car you can get for the money.
My 3.5 gets decent gas mileage, about 24mpg.yes, some magazines and internet articles said mid or high 7´s.
yes, v6 charger has decent power with the v6 3.5, but not very decent gas millage. The difference between the 3.5 HO and the hemi is very tiny, I don´t have a heavy foot (not hard driver because the gas prices) so, the difference between my 3.5 and my 5.7 is very tiny... but yes, I love my v6 as I love my hemi!!! awesome cars!
i only get like 19mpg around the city but i guess i have a heavy foot.My 3.5 gets decent gas mileage, about 24mpg.
The police cars are heavier and slower.Here are the 0-60 mph numbers as determined by the Michigan State Police Test (source: allpar.com).
V6 Charger (3.5L)
2006 8.9 sec
2008 8.5 sec
Hemi Charger (5.7L)
2006 6.5 sec
2008 5.9 sec

There's nothing iffy about the steering and brakes. Even without the brawny Hemi, there is satisfying acceleration, although it's well back from the leaders of this group. The climb to 60 mph takes 7.3 seconds. A quarter-mile speed of 90 was traditionally the threshold of being a fast car. Many of today's models do better; four of this group's six meet or exceed that mark, including this 3.5-liter 300 at 15.6 seconds at 90 mph.
