The General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard is without a doubt the most recognizable TV and movie car the world has ever known. From the late 1970’s to the mid-1980’s the orange 1969 Dodge Charger with the confederate flag on the roof would outrun the law countless times and save Bo and Luke Duke from the crooked clutches of Boss Hog and Rosco P. Coltrane. It’s an icon in the annals of American pop culture and loved by folks ranging in age from six to sixty. The second generation Dodge Chargers that were built from 1968-1970 are considered to be some of the most beautiful muscle cars ever to come out of Detroit. Their iconic coke bottle shape still looks as good today as it did 43 years ago. For that reason it seems only fitting that the guys at Edmunds Inside Line have seen fit to match the ’69 version up against Dodge’s newest second generation 2011 Charger R/T. Make sure to click though to see how 43 years of technology stack up against a 43 year old sled on 15-inch wheels.

    There is almost absolutely no comparison. Whether it be Dodge, Ford or Chevrolet, their steeds of today are comparable in name only.

    Given, each of their offerings today are fantastic examples of automotive manufacture but they just don’t quite hit the mark.

    Give me an old, un-molested, muscle car any day. Nothing can beat the old musty smell of the interior, or the smell of raw gas wafting from the engine compartment, the sounds unmuffled by firewall insulation and the feel of straight up mechanical connections.

    Her performance is very impressive,recording 13.7-13.8sec quarter miles on ordinary example,13.0-13.3sec on well loosen-up example.
    So her thirst is highly regrettable,thus I do anticipate that the new 8-speed automatic transmission would be adopted to V8-powered R/T version in 2013,as V6 version(2012~).
