NOT!
The V6 is a great engine but by no stretch of the imagination is it fast.

It does to me. My 3.6 Challenger is still by far the fastest car I've owned. Had a 4 cyl Toyota Camry before this. Why hate on the v6? Not everyone can afford or wants the v8. No need for such a sarcastic reply

Am getting rid of it as soon as things are settled. This SRT is nothing like my SRT10 Ram, drive-ability or quality. It's a shame too because the Challenger was set to be a car I would own for the next 5+ years.
I miss my 10 as well. Which one did you have? Mine was a 06 RC, Inferno Red, all options less side airbags.

My Challenger I feel is a better performer. Although, it and my old Magnum SRT8 suffers from poor throttle response. As of late, I'm using autostick more and more. My car hesitates as well when in stop and go traffic -- presumably caused by the trans adpatives...It doesn't seem to bog, just hesitates for a second or two then it decides to go. But, autostick takes care of that problem. I saving up for a programmer and tunes, mainly to improve throttle response and to shutoff the hated MDS.

Good luck on whatever path you take in terms of a new ride and I hope your case with Dodge works out.

Thanks

Hi had #098 of the Yellow Fevers. 2005 SRT10 Ram all options except navigation and had a Borla exhaust on her.

The 392 is faster without a doubt but I do miss the INSANE torque the truck had and I feel the truck handled better in turns. The Challenger is wishy washy on the highway with the slightest cross wind. The truck was crazy stable on the highway even with cross winds. (go figure)

No hate on the V6 rather defining it is not fast at all in comparison to the 392 and that is what this thread is about, the 392. If anything, I would call it (V6) quick (not fast) for what it is. Enjoy!

From Dodge 0-60 Times & Dodge Quarter Mile Times | 2013 SRT Viper GTS, Avenger RT, Challenger SRT8, Hemi Charger 0-60, Neon, Ram and Dodge Nitro 0 to 60 stats!

1970 Dodge Challenger T/A 0-60 mph 7.0 Quarter mile 15.2

2011 Dodge Challenger SE (Pentastar V6) 0-60 mph 6.3 Quarter Mile 14.7

It is amazing what the new cars can do compared to the older ones.

Speed and quickness are a perception....I used to have a 1986 Toyota MR2 0-60 mph 8.3 Quarter mile 16.3 it used to seem like a rocketship!

08 SRT8 #6077, InTune, AFE CAI, 180 TT, Catch Can, Cabin Air Filter, Speedlogix Strut Brace, Hawk HPS brake pads. Best time of 12.78@109.22

Yeah, the SRT is just shy of 2 seconds faster to 60mph. That's a H_ll of a lot faster. LOL

Ha.. while they have the 4.4 right the 12.7 is far off and is more like a manual time. Autos are running very low 12s every day of the week and if you see how far ahead the 392 would be at the end of the race, you would not be so quick to laugh at the 2.5 second difference. 8 car lengths?
