After a glorious year of owning my 2020 GT AWD, I decided to bite the bullet and take advantage of the inflated trade in value.

At 11k miles I'm getting $33,600 offered for a vehicle that I paid $34,300 for.
I found a solid looking offer on Vroom for a 2019 392 Scat Pack with 7k miles on it for $44k.

Finalizing the paper-work in the next few hours here and hopefully taking delivery next week.
I can't believe I was sleeping on that triple nickel color, especially with all the black accents and that beastly shaker hood.
This color looks AMAZING in the sunlight, very excited. (Also looking forward to not triggering my neurosis trying to keep that black paint clean)

Sharp Scat. You'll love that 392. And Shakers rule. IMO.
What trans?

Thank you thank you! :) it's A8. I drove manuals since I was 16 and in the area I live (city-ish) manuals just aren't as fun as they used to be.
The A8 is a fabulous trans.You'll love the shifts in Track Mode.

Enjoy the 392 power! Why do you have to wait until next week to get it, shipping?

Correct, Vroom will deliver to my door.
Did you check out the car in person? If it's close enough to look at it, tell them you want to pick it up. It's the 4th O July weekend, time to drive somewhere!

You’re getting great money on the sale of the old one but now you pay sales tax on the entire new purchase so it’s not a net gain.
if you’re happy with it that’s what counts. Good luck with it and hope fuel prices go back down.

Niiiice car! Grats on your purchase. The inflated used car prices are what got me into my TA, traded my 5.5 year old 56k miles Rubicon in and got crazy mad money for it. They made one offer, I said no, they came back again, still said no and then they made the offer I could not refuse.

Just hoping I don't end up wishing I held out for a 392...

Don't test drive a Scat Pack, ask me how I know!

Tripel Nickel is an awesome color and the fact that you got the shaker is awesome! I absolutely love my ZF 8 Speed. Like others have said it is the best Auto gearbox ive ever driven. It's buttery smooth when you want it to be with the 392's power, or violent as hell when you turn it up and watch the shaker, well, SHAKE! Scatpack's are amazing daily drivers too, that's what mine is! You'll be super excited when you realize what a damn car you've bought!

I went from a 2015 5.7 Charger R/T R&T to a 2018 Scat Pack SHAKER, and it was an amazing difference. Be prepared for a totally different feeling under the throttle, and be prepared for a much SLOWER pull out into traffic! I GUARANTEE an AWD Challenger, can pull out at a turn/intersection MUCH quicker than I can in my Scat Pack. You MUST be careful when hitting the gas and turning in 1st gear, there are a lot more torques than there are pounds on the rears and you flat out, will not move, or move sideways. OR even worse, act like a Mustang Crowd Killer and end up on YouTube.
But buckle up and enjoy the ride, you will love it.
