PRO’s: Great power, comfort and size make this a muscle car you can live with everyday.
CON’s: To big to be a great handler, high price, cheapish interior, manual transmission.
FINAL THOUGHT: More of grand tourer than an actual muscle car, the 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 combines big grunt and heritage with all day usability and serious open road prowess.
If you’re into muscle cars then you no doubt know that there are three main contenders in the marketplace. There’s the Ford Mustang, the Chevrolet Camaro and of course, the car you see here, the 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392. Dodge however has taken a little different approach to Challenger than it’s competitors by not trying to make a sports car out of a muscle car, but instead, just making a really good muscle car with great grand touring properties. How do I know this you might ask? Well, in a quest to find out I drove this sucker 1,100 miles in 3 days by running from San Fransisco to Los Angeles and back over a beautiful California weekend.
