2007 Daytona Charger Versus 2014 R/T Max Charger

So I bought a 2007 Plum Crazy Daytona Charger in 2007, and we just bought a 2014 Black R/T Max Charger. I've been driving the new Charger, and noticed some obvious differences.

The R/T Max is fully loaded with almost all the options, including safety features (which seems to be important to my wife) and AWD. I can listen to my music on my phone via Bluetooth, remote start my car, and lock/unlock start/stop my car while keeping my keys in my pocket. But even though it has a Hemi, it feels like I'm driving a sedan. The 5.7L HEMI does pickup pretty well.

My Plum Crazy Daytona Charger doesn't have a ton of options, but looks sporty and sounds awesome. The sport bucket seats wrap around my body and keeps me stationary while zooming through curves. It doesn't do great in rain or snow, but is definitely more fun.

Guess I got to see (and drive) two sides to the Charger... which side did you choose?

Love the plum crazy, it's a timeless color! Your newer Hemi should have a little more power than the '07. But if I'm not mistaken your daytona should have the better gear ratio making it seem quicker than your newer RT.

The seats in the RT and RT max aren't great, but they're fantastic in the road and track. They are just like the seats in your daytona, very plush and the bolstering is excellent.

The daytona came with a special sport tuned exhaust from the factory, that's why you notice the sound difference. The stock exhaust on the 11+ chargers is blah, I was happy when I replaced mine.
