I think a lot of of are in the camp of liking the Core concept, it just seems like they could have done "budget hotrod" a little better than a ~$40k car.

I think it makes perfect sense. A step up from the base R/T and a step down from the 392. Then the Classic Guys can have the retro vibe with a more powerful engine. In the old days, there were more choices at more price points think: 383 / 440 / 426.

Would be cool to offer the 6.1 in a performance based R/T. Upgraded brakes, staggered wheels, better suspension. Stock seats, stock wheels, etc. unfortunately it wouldn't be feasible because the base SRT is only ten grand more than the base R/T so putting anything in the middle doesn't make sense because for a few grand more you could get an SRT.

Actually I read where there is talk of replacing the 5.7 in the RT in the next year or two with a I believe a NA 6.2. I think it was in Allpar.com. If I thought I might post this info here I would have made sure to make a point to remember the source. I belive they Chrysler are thinking about putting the 6.2 in the Ram truck also. As you can see I don't post much on this forum. Mostly here to gather info and stay out of the free for alls that are all too common here.

I don't want a 6.1 in the r/t, add a diablo 93 tune to the r/t and it'll go just as well as a stock 6.1. I'd rather get a forged and supercharged 5.7 option. Or maybe the 6.2 supercharged engine without the srt8 options. The core concept provides r/t owners with a similar upgrade option. If we only want a bit more power.
