Does the 392 6-speed have the 1st to 4th skip shift?
they use skip shift to "increase" gas milage. so yes while it does still carry a $1,000 tax, it could have potentially been more had they not had 1-4.I thought the reason of the skip shift was to increase gas milage in order to avoid the gas guzzler tax. I'm paying a $1000 tax on my new Challenger, so they should just scrap the skip shift
Not so. It's based on the fuel mileage. It applies to passenger vehicles that get a combined EPA MPG rating lower than 22.5 MPG. The amount depends on just how far below that magic number the vehicle scores. From the EPA web site:The gas guzzler tax comes with any car with a V8 or bigger
