    Cool Daily Driver

    Besides my two trans am's both black. I have a '12 Crush Orange Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but I have been enticed by the overall "need for speed". I love my Jeep but my dealer called me. Wranglers fetch a pretty penny on the used market and knows that I like to go fast. All my DD's have been suv/truck/jeep since 2004. I kinda wanted a new fast four door.

    I am pretty sure I am going to pull the trigger on a 2013 Dodge Charger R/T with AWD. All the goodies (monroof, nav) Going black with black interior and a special package that has black rims and grill. With a hemi of course.

    I don't like any of the current GM products and the SHO is too expensive and just doesn't look as menacing as the Charger. Any one have a 2011-2013 Charger with Hemi? If so, how do you like it?

    Once I get it I will post a pic by my Trans Ams. All black.

    I have a 2006 Dodge Charger RT Daytona as my DD and I love it so I am sure you will enjoy the '12 one. Although I wish I went with the SRT8.

    I pulled the trigger about ten days ago and sold my jeep. I got one helluva of a deal from a dealer in the burbs of Chicago. Well worth the drive at least $2k cheaper than any of the jokers around here. Again, nothing from GM excites me not even the new SS. It stills looks boring..Sorry!! I am loving Chrysler now and will probably get my wife a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee next year.

    Anywayz, there is a pic below. It is a 2013 Charger RT with AWD sport appearance package (black rims and black grill. Black exterior with all black leather interior. 370 HP 5.7 Hemi. It is a monster in a car this large plus it handles like a much smaller car. Has paddle shifters on steering wheel, moonroof, nav/back up camera. A huge 8.4 inch touchscreen for nav, climate, radio, and just about anything else. Love the LED tail lights too. Never had a vehicle with factory remote start and it is great in Iowa in winter.

    Low 5 seconds 0-60 from the factory plus I can haul the family all over. Getting about 18 in town and hit 24 mpg on the way home from Chi-town.

    Bad cell phone pics. STill love my TA!! Took it out this Saturday to blow the cobwebs out.

    Sharp looking car. Some friends have one quite similar and they really like it.
