A quote from the Off Topic chat that I think is fitting here;

I get the fact that both the srt8 and mustang have a bunch of HP now, but the purpose for a "muscle" car is a cost effective fast car. If they want to overcharge, overcharge for the Viper and Corvette, but the srt8 and mustang are meant to be sold to blue collar, non millionaire type folks.
This is why I like the CSRT. Being a 4 banger, it is technically not a muscle car however.

Well they were cheap vs anything else in its category. You take a Porsche Cayenne Turbo and you're talking $107,000 (USD). This is similar to what the Cherokee SRT-8 competes with.

Or a Ford Mustang GT500 or BOSS302 runs $40,000-$48,000 (USD). A Chevy 2SS is $34,000. These SRT prices are way out there. They were fairly decent.

When we bought our CSRT, we had originally been looking for a second small, commuter car (clown car).
New (with arm rest, which is an upgrade), most where ~$26-28k. The honda fit was more than $30k.
For a few extra dollars ($5k isn't really that much), you get a rough around the edges go fast car with tons of cargo space and a whole lot safer than a sub-compact clown car.
I got mine for ~$22k out the door, year old, with extended warranty. I couldn't get a Rio5, rolling on 13's without the armrest upgrade for that much.

I also enjoy driving my commuter car.

For the Charger/300/and Jeep pricing isnt that bad for what they compete with. The Challenger is over priced for its class lol. Going on almost 10 year old chassis designed by mercedes and you get a heavy car thats expensive lol.

Id still take the Challenger

How I would love this to happen - http://www.allpar.com/news/index.php...for-the-magnum

Based off the current Charger, and I would not have a chance at resisting it.
