Yes, I drove one. I test drove a Challenger, a Camaro, and the Mustang. The Challanger had a nice ride, a sweet retro look (I placed it first in this catagory), but the body was heavy, and I could feel this when attempting to drive it as a "sports" car.
The Camaro handled as good as the Mustang, but I just could not get past it's cheap looking interior and style.
The Mustang handled much better than the heavy Challenger, and that was with the base package and its solid rear axle. The Mustang is lighter, and has it's own designed chassis. I suspect the new 2015 with the IRA will be even more capable than the Challanger.
These were my opinions after test driving all three. The Challager I drove was an SRT package. The price scared me a bit, but had I gone the way of a Chalanger, it would have had to be an SRT, as this was the only package that would have made the Challanger even
with a Camaro or Mustang. It was nice going straight forward, but for me, there's more than just "straight line" performance.
It would be a shame if they don't upgrade the Challanger, or replace it with something that will compete with the other two. I like these new pony car wars; we all benifit from them.
