Question Which Challenger has the most comfortable ride?

The SE, R/T or SRT model? Which one will isolate bumps better on crappy roads?

I would say SE with touring suspension or SRT. I got SS/T package on my SE though and even though it is stiffer it still rides beautifully.

My Redline has a pretty damn smooth ride, of course I had a Jeep Wrangler as my daily driver before so....

If you're talking comfort? The SE will have the most comfortable ride. The SRT and R/T's have a lower stance, and a suspension geared more for performance.

The SE has a softer suspension than the R/T or SRT and will soak up road bumps much better. I suggest that you test drive a few models. You can also rent an SE if you want a more extensive test.

Hmmm the SE is half the cost of the SRT.

But when I test drove the SRT-8 with that adaptive suspension I could feel the difference going over speed bumps.
Plus gotta have a V-8 as I was raised on V-8 engines.

Then I'll have to test drive the SE and R/T models.
No more stiff rides for me. The 1988 Mustang GT which is factory stock is already too stiff for my back and body but it sure does handle.
