We'd need more information from you. Like what year is that used SRT? Is it thru a private sale, or at a dealership? Etc etc.

As much as I love my SRT, I'd go for the new never owned and driven car.

T/A 392 is basically a Scat Pack with the dynamics package and a graphics package.

An SRT of the same vintage will have adjustable suspension, and a few other do-dah options that you can't get on a T/A.

If you want adjustable suspension, get the SRT. If you like the T/A graphics, get the T/A.

Something to keep in mind..That used 2016's already depreciated while that new T/A haven't.

The reason I'm leaning towards the SRT here is, how good will those vinyl wraps on the T/A look after a few years in the sun?? The T/A looks great, don't get me wrong...Will it still look great when It's spent 2,3, or 4 years in the sun?

Pretty close comparison IMO. Having the track mode suspension is a must for me now so would have to say SRT. Kinda like the flat bottom steering wheel too.

The adjustable suspension is very nice. It's really worth it over a sticker kit any day.

Maybe showing my lack of knowledge regarding the two models, but, I would really want the 6 piston brembos on front that I know the SRT has, not sure if the T/A has those brakes, but on a road course those big brakes would be worth having, just saying . . .

^^^ Yep, 392 T/A has a few of the SRT goodies. 6 piston Brembos, 9.5" wheels with 275/40/20 tires. Big T/A plus is the Air Grabber C.A. intake. I liked it so much I put one on my SRT. Works great!

Not that it's cheap, but in this case there is only 1 thing the SRT has that the T/A doesn't have, and that's the adjustable suspension. The T/A has lots of unique stuff on it. When you take into account that we're talking new vs. used here, you gotta take the brand new car all day over the used one for the same money IMO. They are not the same model year either, SRT is older.

I see people getting used SRTs real cheap right now, so the notion that the SRT depreciates less than the others looks to be totally false.

I'm not a black hood or black wheel car lover, and the SRT adjustable suspension is not something you could easily add, so for me I'd go SRT. You also need to consider the color of the cars. Is either one a color you desire?

If you like graphics get the T/A if you like performance get the SRT. Figure in the cost of adding a extended service contract to the SRT and if it is still a good deal I'd choose it. 2600 miles is nothing and it probably is a garage queen?
