But that won't happen until at least MY2015, right?bigger, faster, and better MPG
especially when the 8 speed debuts
Totally agree on this being a very biased comparison!Seem's like a pretty biased comparison from my reading. They let the SS beat out the Charger in *Performance* even though it was completely subjective. Which is why I don't let any articles like these have any overall affect on my opinion.
They gave more points to the SS for rear comfort, despite the fact there is less room in the back than the Charger? They knocked down points for transmission, despite equal gas mileage and better performance out of the Charger? I know some people think the 5 speed's are some kind of dinosaurs in the automotive world, but they still work fine IMO.
Perhaps I am just missing the point, maybe i'll test drive an SS if I ever see on actually at a dealer and see for myself, but I have my doubts.
I would get a Charger R/T over it as well and spend the price difference on power and suspension upgradesI saw the Chevrolet SS in a delaership when I stopped by to visit a friend!
It caught my eye, but I would choose a Charger SRT8 over that ANYDAY!
You really hate the new KMopar vehicles don't you? You take every chance you can get to say how much they suck, even going as far as to quote obviously biased magazine reviews to support your hatred.Like I have said, the handling on the SRT8s really needs to get upgraded.
Two things killed it, high price and mediocre handling.
Perhaps the Super Bee would have been a better comparison
[sarcasm]Obviously the handling needs work because weighing 450lbs heavier it almost matched the lighter car in handling.[/sarcasm]it did need one less foot to stop from 70 mph (in a short 152 feet). It almost tied the SS’s speed in our slalom test and returned the same 17-mpg average during our 700-mile road trip.
Proof the article is biased, trying to sugar coat the slower performance of the Chevy by talking around the fact that the 450lb lighter car can't make up for the 55hp difference in performance despite having a "superior" transmission to the Dodge. And the larger heavier Dodge that can't handle nearly matches the Chevy in the slalom.Although the 6.2-liter small-block is down 55 horsepower to the big Hemi, the Chevy’s lighter weight and better traction make it easier to launch at the test track and just as quick as its rival out in the real world. The 12.9-second quarter-mile pass is a solid performance.
Easy there....You really hate the new KMopar vehicles don't you? You take every chance you can get to say how much they suck, even going as far as to quote obviously biased magazine reviews to support your hatred.
I have Eagle RSA2 on mine, and the steering/handling is very responsive. There isn't really much feedback in the steering wheel, but I've surprised a few people with the responsiveness of this car. As for the ride, well I think it rides very well. I like the firmer suspension.I have a cousin that has the Camaro and I feel the ride is better in the Charger. I don't know how the Goodyear F1s are, but my 07 had Goodyear RSAs on it and those tires were awful, replaced them with Yokohama Parada Spec-Xs and the Charger handled a lot better.
