So today I picked up my 2015 Challenger SRT 392. 485 HP, 475 Ft. LBs. torque and the 8 speed auto - with paddle shifters. Dashboard programming for engine/transmission, shocks and struts (compression and rebound), stability control, steering sensitivity etc. (Street/Sport/Track) for each. Makes the car very versatile. My primary goal for the next 3 years is to drive the 15 top rated "road trips" around the USA - and maybe a run down a drag strip or two The street ride in the Challenger - just 41 miles on it - is really fine. The Laguna leather seats are incredibly comfortable! I will keep watching Mustang, and will probably be back if the looks get closer to my taste and if the overall technology improves (very discouraging for a brand new car).

Thanks. I have about 1200 miles on it and I love it! The thing that is really great about it is the "programmability" of the car from the dashboard computer. The fully adjustable shocks/struts (Compression and rebound), four different engine/transmission tunes (Including the "ECO" mode), three different steering responses, four different traction/vehicle stability system settings etc. The car really drives and handles like 4 different cars! With rain and snow I have been using the "ECO" mode which keeps you out of low gear, limits torque generation and just makes the car handle very easily on slick roads........really nice for "year round use." And when the roads are dry and the sun is out, let her rip with the 485 HP and 475 Ft. LBS of torque - the torque ads a lot of smiles per gallon!
