Great looking car!! I'm surprised you could get out of Camaro, too cramped I heard[IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.challengertalk.com/forums/images/smilies/4.gif[/IMG]
Haha they aren’t ‘that’ bad but they’re definitely small. Funny story, I drive a work van 5 days a week so I got in last week and was like, “man this car is small.” Thankfully I’m only like 5’7” on a good day so it doesn’t affect me so much like it does the 6’ guys. It truly is a great car though, it’s so much fun to drive. It’s a great time to be alive with all these cars. I’m not brand loyal so I just love everything. I’ve owned GMC, Scion, Toyota, Chevy, Dodges and I’m only 33.

I am 6' 5" and although I always wanted a Challenger me and the wife test fit in Mustangs and Cameros as well as a Challenger at the local Motor Trend new car show last year. The Mustang was too small (the wife's first choice), I couldn't see the gauges through the steering wheel in the Camero and the Challenger headroom was a little tight since every one they had on display was a sunroof car. We then went to the dealer and test fit both of us in a non sun roof Challenger (she is very short) and we both fit just fine. I prdered mine a few months later and now have a PCP widebody.

Nice! I got mine from a local dealer (Colorado) who bought it from Malloy and is shipping it here! The deal is subjective to some but basically we talked the Challenger down to 41,250 before I got killed on my trade-in. I was upside down over 6K and walked out of the dealership right about $2,500 over sticker with all taxes, fees etc. But I got the car I wanted so I’m happy.

Nice. Yeah, I could see that sucking for you haha. It’s similar to when I see tall people driving old miatas, looks like a clown car. I test drove the mustang and I could see just fine but the gauges were blocked for me. Challenger no issues whatsoever and great visibility.

I'm 5'11 and I find the 6th gen ridiculously cramped with hardly any visibility. I hate it. The 5th gen isn't that bad. I feel the most comfortable in a Challenger and Mustang, but everyone and their uncle has a damn Mustang. It also doesn't look as good. So, Challenger it is for me

Yeah I get why people say that, if I was any taller it would be a definite issue, there’s not much clearance for my head and I’m not tall, at all. Agreed on Mustang, they’re everywhere and women drive a lot of them. Which isn’t bad but I always poke fun it’s a girls car.

I came from a 5th gen Camaro and the interior didn't feel overly cramped (I am only 5'8"). But I definitely felt a bit more claustrophobic when I sat in the 6th gens while looking at various possible replacements for the Camaro. My short list included 6th gen SS/ZL1, Mustang GT/GT350, C7 GS or a 392 Challenger. All have their positives and negatives, but I finally settled on the Challenger (T/A 392) because none of the others come in plum crazy!
