LBS. torque, 8 speed auto (programmable)). In terms of price/performance/looks/interior the new 485 HP Scat Back is the best buy. However, I wanted the SRT 392 "programmable suspension" and the programmable engine/transmission tunes (From the dashboard computer screen). Even though I am a FORD shareholder, I just could not handle the "all cousins look alike" look of the 2015 Mustang - reminded me of when FORD designed the Jaguar to look like the Taurus My plan is to drive the top 10 - 15 "road trips," across the USA, in the next three years ... and run down one or two drag strips - on the way. The interior and technology in the Challenger are far ahead of the other "pony cars" IMHO - and I looked at them all. I really enjoyed my 2000 Mustang GT vert, my 2011 Mustang vert and my 2013 Mustang GT vert. I will keep watching the Mustang and give it another try if it comes back to "the Mustang look" and its technology improves.

I posted on this thread when it was in a different forum. Did not intend to be redundant.

No way i can consider this car and the amount of money it would take to get it the way i want it!
I also sat in the 2015 Mustang, the 2015 Camaro and the Challenger. The Camaro interior is not "great." Of course, next year is the big redesign of the Camaro. The Mustang was nicer then my 2013, but the new Challenger is really very nice - especially with the Laguna (all leather) seats and interior door panels. I think the new Mustang 5.0 should be very reliable. The new 8 speed auto, in the Challenger, is a great transmission - especially with the 3 on board programs. The Camaro and the Challenger certainly have very unique "visual looks." The Mustang certainly has the "Ford" look. Lots of choices for people looking for a car from the "pony class."

The last two pictures show the car computer programming of the car's performance characteristics. Transmission also reprograms the engine throttle response.
