As far as the Dodge goes, I traded a 2014 Challenger SXT to get this Mustang and the Dodge quality is lightyears ahead of anything else out there. The sheet metal was thicker, the doors made a nice "thump" when closed, the interior was leather trimmed with auto climate controls as standard equipment, it was much roomier and comfortable, the chassis was rugged yet rode like a dream, you could open the trunk without the key, etc. etc. etc...just a VERY nice and well built car. I don't have a problem with Chrysler quality at all. I've also owned tons of Ram trucks and Jeeps over the years all with great quality and very little repairs.

I don't like the '15 Stang. I think it looks way too European to be an American classic representation. Having said that, the interior is much much better and the exterior will grow on people. Give it a year and there will be no more threads about how ugly it is.
I have to agree about the quality, function and performance of the Challenger. My 2015 Challenger SRT 392 is really incredible to drive - in all aspects. The dashboard adjustable suspension, steering, traction/stability control, transmission/throttle programming etc. really makes the car extremely versatile. The sheet metal thickness, quality of paint and the pure performance are all a notch up from either my 2011 Mustang vert or 2013 Mustang GT vert. I do think the 2015 Mustang is improved from previous years. The Challenger 8 speed transmission, in track mode, shifts in 160 milliseconds - and hard. Lots of good cars out there, but they are getting more expensive - fast!
