One thing I've noticed with the cruise on the Charger is that it actively manages your speed. That is, with the cruise on my Stratus, if I'm going down a steep grade, the car can exceed your set speed. The Charger will actively slow you to your set speed, or if you choose a lower speed, will slow the car rather than letting the speed drift down to the new setting. I don't know how long they've been doing that, but this is the first car I've driven that does it.
The active speed management has been around for a while. Our previous vehicle, a 2000 T&C Ltd, would downshift on downhill/uphill slopes to help maintain the proper speed. My '06 Ram and '10 Journey have this feature as well.

While I wouldn't mind adaptive cruise control, a car that can drive itself is not something I'm ready for (yet). I actually enjoy driving most of the time.
