FYI, KBB has no values for 2012 Challengers yet. I emailed them as to why. Apparently not enough have been traded in yet for KBB to get accurate values. Good news, low trade in rates should keep values higher.

I would downgrade to a 2010 with low mileage so you can tune and fly

I owe around 24500 on the SXT and I'm hoping to have some change from the trade to put towards the R/T and also hoping the last minute incentives will knock some mula off the tag. Looking in the end to spend about 27000 said and done. Doubt that is how it is going to work out but I'm hoping it does.

Now if that doesnt work lol

How in the holy hell can I get some more pep in this V6 step. I changed out the exhausts and filter as most do but what else?!?
If you can afford it, do it....I did.

The R/T is a lot of fun.

I traded in my '12 fully loaded SXT and the best quote I got from three dealerships was $21,000, partly due to a dent on the roof. I'd be surprised if you got more than $22-23k.

I took a hit for sure. However, that's easily forgettable when I feel my new R/T accelerate with great force while barely going past 2000 RPM.

Call me crazy, but what would it benefit them for trading in a '12 for a '12 if they want them off the lot?

Maybe the sxt will sell quicker than the r/t?


Because, I'm in the same boat as OP. I have 4k on a '12 black sxt plus.

Last year I took my 11 Rallye with 900 miles on it to go look at R/Ts. They offered 22k. There was no way I was going to actually trade it in but I was curious on the trade in value since kbb didn't have 11s listed at the time yet. But if you find the right dealer you might be able to get a decent offer. In my opinion, they're not as desperate to get rid of the 12s AND take in your car as you might think. Granted the OP owes less on the 12 than I do on my 11 so the hit might not be too bad

I imagine that there will be aftermarket power adders for the 3.6 in the next few years.

^^^ yep. It's easier to sell a new car than a used car in most cases. They are not in business to lose money and will not make a deal unless it benefits them.

Just for grins, I checked KBB yesterday and mine would trade for 17,5. I owe less than that so I didn't think that's to was out of whack. It's a daily use car....not a factory fresh Model A.

Like everyone here, I get the "itch" once in a while for a 5.7....but I'd have to take a minor beating on the wallet for a down to keep my payments low and also....I don't like the idea of having to step up to premium fuel for a daily driver. Just a hangup of mine.
Then I realize my SE does 75 on the open road just fine and keep driving.
