2015 Dodge Charger RT Hemi Road Test Review

I always love a V8, so when the 2015 Dodge Charger RT Hemi Road and Track package arrived, I was quite excited.  The Charger with the 5.7 Hemi is one of the best values in cars right now.  The as-tested price is around $45,000, and for that you get a 370 horsepower 5.7 liter Hemi engine, a smooth shifting 8 speed transmission, heated and cooled suede seats, 20″ wheels, sport suspension, the list goes on.  This car a $1500 black painted roof option, so let’s just take that one out and call it $43,500.  Is it any good?

2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Hemi Redline Video Road Test Review

Here is the latest car of the week road test.  I really love muscle cars and big american v8s, and this one has all of that wrapped up in a good looking package.  I had a great time with the 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Redline.  It’s a great muscle car. Don’t expect it to be a precise corner carver, but if you treat it right it’ll reward you with a very balanced and good handling performance.  The 6-speed Tremec TR-6060 transmission is slick shifting and as strong as anything out there.  I really loved the combination of the manual with a healthy 5.7 liter Hemi V8 engine.  I’d LOVE to test the SRT8 version, which has a 6.4 liter Hemi and another 100 horsepower.  Until next time, Enjoy!
