None of the Scat Pack's have 3.92 gearing. The manual has 3.91's and the autos come with 3.09's. The auto has a 4.71 1st gear in the transmission thus the reason for the 3.09's.Being it has 3:92 gears stock, which is what Dodge did right.
See above.I thought Scats had 3:09 gears stock?
I'm not a tall guy and this is my 2nd Challenger and I don't think they're that big at all. Not sure why everyone seems to point that out. I mean why even point it out?? They are different cars. Here's my bet, go drive them both, I will bet you end up in the Scatpack. So many advantages over the Camaro. And power? Plenty of it on demand! Car is a beast and I love it. And its so planted to the ground, just point the nose and it follows. Feel very stable in this "stock car".
Here's the dimensions between the two cars -
Challenger - L 197.5-198" W 75.7 - 78.8 H 55.7 - 57.5
Camaro - L 190.2 W 75 H 52.9
Not really much of a difference other than the length, width is the same and the height difference will be a welcome advantage. Oh did I mention the huge trunk?
Good luck on your purchase - buy what YOU like.
Here you go.I still need to drive both. I really like the Challengers interior,I'm just afraid its going to feel like a giant moose. Being it has 3:92 gears stock, which is what Dodge did right, it might not feel that way. I realize the Challenger is basically a modern muscle car and the camaro is a sports car. I really like how both look.. Just for the record I have an 05 GTO , yellow..
Here you go.
I sold my SP and bought an ultra low mileage and perfect Inferno Orange 2013 ZL1 6M. I liked the Camaro and SP for different reasons. Starting with power, the ZL1 being supercharged is in a different category compared to the N/A SP. If power and modifications are a top priority, you can probably stop here and just get a ZL1.
Handling is also superior, but for me living in Illinois where twisty roads are virtually non existent, some added handling prowess is a mute point.
Where the Challenger really stood out over my ZL1 was comfort, ride quality, practicality, space, visibility, exhaust note, and to me styling. Let's be clear on this too, the SP is no slouch in the performance department, which I am sure you know.
Honestly I like both. However, since both are gone now the car I still pine for is the Challenger. It's just more fun to own in my opinion. Either way, you can't go wrong. PS I had an 05 GTO as well. The Challenger in some ways reminds me of my GTO in the respect that it actually has decent interior space, and can accept adult passengers. Plus, the Challenger trunk is much larger than the tiny GTO trunk.
Also, when you say the Challenger is a big car, bare in mind so is the ZL1. In fact the curb weight of both is pretty comparable.
