For a $3755 more you get IRS, five passenger capcity and better standard equipment.
I'm not ordering mine till late October or early November.We were told this week that when we return, after our July shutdown, we would be building 3.5L Challengers. I'm not sure if this was always the plan or because of recent record high gas prices. I guess those waiting for the 5.7L stick will have to be a little more patient.
Can it do this at 4,000LBS: 340 V8 1/4 mile 14.8 @ 96 mph?Challenger SE comes standard with a 3.5-liter High Output V-6 engine which produces 250 horsepower...17-inch aluminum wheels with P215/65R17 all-season tires, four-wheel disc brakes

Funny that that question should come up again, HemiCuda is correct. I asked it a while back and Bob Sheaves provided an informed answer...No it does not.
14.0 1/4 mile is good for a 4000 LB car. Its about the same for the 1970's 440 that did 14MPG. If you want to go faster mod it or get an SRT..What bugs me is the price tag, but I'm from a time when the V8 option was $200.In the case of the R/T, I hope that's for the auto. Otherwise, those figures suck.
According to the engineers, the SRT8 auto and manual are so close that they are using the same performance numbers. This appears to also be the case with the R/T models, at least that's what they're reporting so far. Typically, these numbers are conservative, I'm sure you'll find reports of R/T owners easily getting into the upper 13's with stock vehicles.In the case of the R/T, I hope that's for the auto. Otherwise, those figures suck.
