Challenger is here.... and my dad made the right decision!

Hey felllas, so maybe some of you remember that whole dilemmna with my dad's company lease on his journey about to expire and gave him the idea to reward himself and lease the Challenger, heck even if it's the base model, he's only gonna keep it 18 months max. He said no no no no all the way to the last day to order his new lease car, and with a lot of pictures, your guys' testimonials and I guess just the urge to drive a fun car, my dad spontaneously ordered it.

I recommended that he get the Jazz Blue color and I am very glad he did. It looks AMAZING in the sunlight, you can really see each individual pearl reflecting light. and when the sun sets and there is a little bit of light, you get a purple type look, which looks awesome, and when darker the car just looks black. So one color, yet three amazing "shades" it can depict in different lights.


And yes, it's the 3.6... but oh my. This thing is still light on its feet! No HEMI, but my dad averaged 29mpg on his way home! that's in rush hour with city/highway driving.

The steering feels very direct, I like the electric steering. The handling is vastly improved, it's heavy but it feels planted to the ground... oh enough babbling. you guys already know what it feels like to drive one!! soooo.

on to the pics.

And I am so sorry to say that pics don't do jazz blue justice, it has to be seen in person in many lighting conditions.

Enjoy:








HANDS DOWN ONE OF THE BEST CARS ON THE ROAD Happy for my dad, he's a nice daily driver and he deserves it.

Thanks for looking and thank you all to those who help made my dad's decision to lease a challenger the obvious decision!

great looking car, congrats to your Dad!!

I need to see this color in person, can't find one yet to see though. probably darker than I'm comfortable with taking care of but seeing it in person would help. thanks for posting the pics, love to see more.

Haha, it doesn't really stand that high. Notice that the car is sitting on a pretty steep grade which makes the front sit lower than the back, and the car is practically brand new with 50 miles on it so after the suspension is broken in a bit it should settle down a little bit more.

I've already driven it a couple times and it drives awesome! The handling is great, on turns it just feels like it wants to stay level. The engineers at chrysler did a great job re designing the suspension for the 2011+ models. I can really feel the difference, it's really day and night.

Yes, my first impression was that the R/T I test drove last week was lighter than the 3.5 SE I rented a couple years ago (not the case, obviously). They did a great job on steering and geometry.
And your photo skills are outstanding as always, man.

Thanks! And it's not too shabby for a V6 either... first ever 0-60 run with just foot off the brake and immediate accelerator pedal was 6.58s... and it's not even broken in yet just passed 600 miles. Best of all my dad is averaging about 27mpg through his stop/go rush hour traffic.
