Besides the obvious facts that the SRT-8 is faster than the R/T, Im just wondering how the two stack up against each other. A while back I traded my 04 Ram 2500 Hemi and my 2010 Camaro 2SS in on my Power Wagon, and while I really am enjoying the Power Wagon I kind of miss a performance vehicle to play with. If I save my pennies I think I could pay cash for an R/T at about the same time my Power Wagon is paid off, but Id have to wait a bit longer for an SRT-8. The question I keep asking myself is would the SRT-8 be worth the extra $10,000 plus to me over the R/T? Im open to all and any thoughts you folks might have.

Are you looking to get into engine modding like heads, cams, etc? And are you buying new or used? The 2011 and 2012 Challengers can't be tuned yet either...

Like I said- it's going to be a while before I do anything, but the vehicle would be new with no tunes. I try to not void the warranty on new vehicles if I can avoid it.

By the sounds of it, a 6.1 SRT8 won't be an option when your time comes to get a new toy. The 6.4 is close to 100HP over the 5.7 R/T, but also starts almost 14K over the base R/T. If the money is available, go for the 392 SRT8, it's a big car and you won't end up wishing you had the extra 100 "warranteed" horsepower after.

My pig stays with r/t in the 1/4 I'd be disappointed IMO if I was in a chally an a ram was next to me, granted the chally was stock. I do like the r/t trim tho a lot. For the right price I'd get a r/t, But I'd prob wait til I can swing the big bad sort.

I bought my 392 knowing there was no tune. This car is a beast stock. The SRT is set up with better suspension and brakes and sits lower than the R/T. 470 HP and M6 trans spells total driving satisfaction for me.

I saw two of the new SRT8's side-by-side at the last Mopar meet here in McAllen. I didn't have my camera. I'll be sure and have it with me on the 16th for the next meet.

Everyone's budget is different, so what you buy is up to that aspect of your circumstances. I like speed like the next gearhead and mine has and always will be from Ma Mopar.

I had a 05 Hemi Ram QC 2WD that was as fast the 4.6L Mustang GTs. It was stock except for a catback. It had the trailer towing pkg. and 3:92 gears and factory 20s. I dressed the red SLT truck up in muscle car garb, adding an aftermarket late model truck Rumble Bee hood, blacking out the center of the hood and scoop and then adding a white 71 Charger/Chall. R/T hood decal to the scoop. On the bed I added a 70 Hemi Cuda Hockey Stick stripe and a tri-fold tonneua cover. The catback system was topped off with vintage 68-69 B-body exhaust tips and a Hooker Aerochamber muffler. Loved that truck! I used it to pull an enclosed 24 foot car trailer and my 71 Chall. to shows. It was a great hauler and cruiser and I had zero problems with it. Should have kept that bad boy!

I traded it in on a used '08 Charger R/T, which eased the pain of losing the truck. The car is quiet, cruises like its on air, has lots of bells and whistles and it's a bad daddy any time I want it to be. It's Inferno Red and I added dark charcoal stripes to the body. Under the hood I recently installed a Volant fresh air intake with the ram air scoop. Yes, it did make a noticeable difference to performance and economy. Can't bring myself to change the exhaust--it's just too quiet and the old lady won't let me alter it either!

My brother-in-law has a 10 Chall. SRT8. Sharp car, gets attention and sure it's a little faster than my Charger. Here is the price difference...he walked out the door for $42K plus tax and title. Two years ago I traded for a shade under $10K difference with tax and title and license. The 08 Charger had 16K miles and warranty left. My truck was out of warranty, but had only 32K miles on it.

Who got the better deal-me or my bro-in-law? I would say I did. I bought warranty, low miles and a car that hauls five comfortably, passes pretty much everything it wants and the wife likes it. Sure, you can lay out $48K or whatever to go 13 flat. I can get by with a car that is a little slower than that, but still gets the job done.

What I save as a result on not buying new or the best model, I will put into the restoration of a 78 Lil Red Express. I can restore this truck (which isn't a rust bucket, but a very decent survivor) for about $10K in parts and materials. I am doing the paint and body myself. Of course you can always say I have a new Challenger SRT8, but lost $10,000 on it the minute I signed the papers!! Instead I would buy a used low mileage example! They are out there. Check eBay and other sources out and you will score my friend. Buy smart, save $ and invest it more wisely in other fun things or put it back into your used slightly used SRT8!!

The R/T is a great package, but go for the SRT when you can.

You need a SRT-8 for the same reason you needed a PW, its the best you can get. Get me one while your at it in Pitch Black Clear Coat w/Radar Red seats and Dual Red centers stripes please.

This isn't mine but I wish it was!

It's really a personal preference and what YOU want. For the extra $10K, the SRT is a performance bargain as it would cost double that to take an R/T and bring it up to SRT performance levels. The R/T 5.7 is a great touring car. For all out performance and spirited driving the SRT will stand up to greater abuse as it has stronger built engine components; which knowingly is why the cost is much greater, not just from the spec chart standpoint. I'm still rather appalled that (in Canada) Dodge wants $2K for the manual transmission - sorry, but this should be standard equipment. Also here, the SRT runs $13K over the SRT8 before any options.

I can't speak for the SRT gearing, but the R/T with the 6 speed manual loafs at 1600rpm at 60mph in the one I test drove this spring. I had to downshift to 4th to get some OK passing oomph, and in fact cruised on the highway in 5th for the added throttle response it provided. All I could think of is what this car would be like with a lower rear axle ratio!

wait for the 8 speed auto RT.... you will be shocked, as the 8 speed 3.6 cars are almost as fast as the 5 speed auto 5.7 lx cars...

Sounds like you're buying a car to play with.

If that's the case, the SRT8

If for a daily driver/mpg then the R/T


I hear what you're getting at though. I love my Durango. It does exactly what I need it to do and only costs me about $1,500 a year to operate. But I'm looking to get a loaded Nissan Altima (3.5 v6) for comfort/power for a daily driver as the Durango lacks the go fast power.

If I was to buy a car for fun reasons only, hands down the Infiniti M56. 12.5 second car stock.

SRT8 comes in at 11.5 second car stock.

Yikes, never thought I would see someone who wants a Nissan altima for power...such a horrible torque curve.

But all things considered.. that's a full luxury sedan vs a consumer car with nice interior. Both have different markets. I'd much rather have luxury over a matchbox car.

You could even compare the 300 SRT8 which is more geared toward the luxury market than the Challenger that I'd place in the sport market.

You must not have read my post..

Plus my brother had a loaded altima with the 3.5 (2002 model) and the power behind that car is pure joy. The 2.5 (ex had a 2008 2.5) isn't anything special in terms of "hold my beer and watch this"

I worked for Chrysler for a long time, the 6.1 SRT were getting very close to mid 12s in great conditions, and little prep from Mopar. The new 6.4 SRT cars are getting close to low 12... They are not 11.5 second cars out of the box unless you put on smaller wheels and tires, + slicks with track prep and perfect conditions.... besides that your tellin people which Mopar they should buy, when your buying a nissans that costs as much as a 3.6/8 speed Charger that gets the same mileage and even better performance with more room... plus its a way cooler car since we all know why we come to this forum site. Relax and think about what your saying man...
