2006 Mustang GT or 2006 Charger R/T

Which one would you pick between these two:

2006 Mustang GT

2006 Charger R/T

I know the Charger is not to everyones liking and most of you would say go with the stang...but I have been really thinking of getting a 4 door since its hard having a 2 door and having 2 grownups sitting in the back seats....and the stang would be my only car...

also i think the charger is tastefully done and has a certain pimp factor to it hehe (22inch wheels are the perfect size for that car)...

What do you guys think...

honest opinion... i hate dodge. i think they are built kinda crappy.

it depends on what you do. they mustang will be faster. will respond to mods better. is a good daily driver and will get good gas mileage.

i think they mustang would be a better car no matter what you are doing with it.

You asked:

Without getting into a pi$$ing match, Dodge missed the boat on the styling for the Charger, if you have any sense of style - it truly is fugley with 4 doors and worse with the stripes and crap they have for it... the challenger looks real hot but not good for you because it has 2 doors... and did I mention the only Dodge I would ever own would be an old one and that's only after I get my 70 Mach1 Twister.

I think between the charger, magnum and 300...the charger takes it hands down because it looks much better than the others and has an agressive look to it in the front...

You said that PERFECTLY.. In fact, you said it so perfectly that it holds true for the now-defunct GTOs too.

Pooooooooooooop in metal form if you ask me.

I have one(05GT), wife has the other(RT charger), father has 300c hemi heritage edition.


If you want to build a fast car. Go with the GT, just soo many more part vendors, blowers, turbo's, engine builders, and great groups around the country.

If you want to be cruising in comfort, need the extra doors and space, don't mind the extra 1000lbs, the lack of a manual tranny, yet still want a fairly quick car with some balls on the highway. Get the Charget RT with R/T package. Hell or better yet the 300c hemi heritage, more cash but just as fast and way more plush on the inside.

you are almost talking apples to oranges when it comes to a Mustang GT or a Charger R/T. they have different functions. The Mustang is a true sports car and the Charger is more of a family car.

I like the looks of the Charger on the outside, but on the inside it looks very cheap in my opinion.

I wouldn't swap my Mustang for a Charger even if you paid me 10 large on top of the trade.

I'll tell ya what, drop the Stang off here (it'll have an excellent home) and go buy the "Family Truckster".

Could not have said it better the Dodge in my opinion is ugly it is big bulky. The Mustang is smaller and more agile.
