if you have ever tracked one, you would agree not the best handling car on the road, street and track, not the same thing
Are we talking about youtube? These "experts" got their fame and get paid by getting hits, likes, and subscribes.You have to remember that these reviewers and journalists are used to driving Porsches, Ferraris, C8 Corvettes, etc. They are going from cars like that to cars like our Mopars, depending on what they're reviewing any given week. Us average everyday people are more likely used to driving some work truck or plain old car/SUV/crossover thing. By comparison, a Challenger is a total sports car. Maybe not always but you get what I mean. That's also why they complain about cheap plastic bits in interiors, stuff that most of us don't even notice or care about unless it's pointed out to us.
For the most part, yes. But I'm also referring to the Motor Trend and Car and Driver types (Who are also on youtube). I find that when one or a few of them have an opinion such as this, the others will agree and repeat that opinion. Maybe they're afraid of being the odd ones out.Are we talking about youtube?

Yes, I subscribed to the "Fantastic 7", and often they all review the same thing, on the same day, and said exactly the same things. IMO, they are all bias in some ways. They have to said "good things" to say on the good sides of auto manufactures. If they don't say good things, they are out, won't get the invite, free trip, or cars to review. And become a Class B reviewer where they review cars from the retail dealerships.
Not saying what they say is all BS. Often times they try to make themselves sound like they drove at LeMans last week.

I feel ya....this was my car through most of my 20s. We called it "the brown barge."Journalists have forgotten what terrible handling is. My Challenger feels like a race car, because this is my other car:
You want terrible handling? I gotcha covered. Funny that the Love Boat weighs 37 pounds less than the SXT, so it's not all about weight.
Nice lol, I came from driving a 2001 Dodge Durango into my 2016 SRT 392 so naturally it felt like a super car by comparison. That being said, now I'm starting to notice its handling limits more after a few months. I'm planning on new, grippier tires, subframe connectors, a shock tower brace, and KW lowering springs that let me keep my stock shocks. Might also eventually upgrade the sway bars and the end links, maybe the front and rear control arms too.
I still want to know what Dodge could do with the Challenger if they actually made a track-focused version, and didn't hold back. The SP Widebody is the closest thing, even though it's still a street car it is very capable and much improved over other, previous Challengers.
