What would you like to see as a factory option?

What options would you like to see on the challenger?

I would like to see a Road And Track package (various stages 1, 2, 3)
SRT interior
SRT suspension or improved R/T suspension (sway bars) maybe?
SRT brembos
- optional staggered wheels and tires
- optional mopar short throw shifter
- optional mopar strut tower bars

I would like to see something with the cars coming with Mopar engine upgrades from the factory. Too bad Uncle Sam and Aunt Barak won't let us have headers

I love American muscle cars like a thrice-divorced 45-year old tax attorney loves barely legal coeds. That is to say; passionately, inappropriately and almost certainly inadequately while muttering whispered apologies to the beautiful thing I am probably ruining forever.

To those who call me crazy: the difference between genius and insanity is measured only by success.

Not so much performance for me but appearance. I'd like to see more wheel and interior color choices. I'd also like to see one more wheel style offered with the basic package. I'd
like to see something other than different styles of spokes for a change.

id like to see a few REAL special editions....something w/ 10-20 extra HP....the Mopar 10 was really the ONLY true special edition Challenger....all the others were $2,000 for some stickers and a unique color

a 6 speed automatic is something the car should have had 4 years+ ago

its shocking they are still using a 5 speed....i thought it was horrible in 2011 when i bought mine.....it looks like they will go into 2014 using it still.....its either very poor planning or they just dont care

707 HP green brick

A different color interior. Gheeeze, enough of the dark grey already. How much could some color pigment cost?

Auto windows up

auto window down with key fob. they got rid of it in 2012+

If the ethanol is the light end of the fuel, maybe we could have a metal pot sitting over an open fire, and pour gas in the pot and let the fire heat it up until the ethanol cooks off

optional 3.73 gears with antislip diff for autos.

optional SRT style seats, obviously with RT stitching and not SRT stiching (not these soft, uninspiring and non-performance promoting RT seats).
