I have a 20 minute drive into work that's mostly highway and as soon as I got on I see a v6 challenger flying down the highway so I'm doing 80 and he catches up to me and starts pacing me. I look over and it's two grown men and the passenger keeps looking at me waiting for me to take off. So he takes off and I decided what the hell..and I gunned it. I passed him at like 110 and I start laughing. So what does he do? He tries again? After the third time he must of got pissed because he pointed at his windshield at his police badge. I point at my badge and flip him the finger. What a fuckin sore loser. Then he tailgates me for like a minute and ricer fly-bys me.

Ahhhh ha ha ha.. Thats to funny. Those cars have nothing against the SS, not the V6 anyway. Our local police department went cheap and got a V6 for a pursuit vehicle. Lets just say my 05 Chevy Colorado has just as much HP as the V6, puts it to shame really.

I didn't even know they made V6 Challengers. V6 Chargers I can sort of understand -- 4-door family car, looking for some ecconomy. But a Challeger?? Why bother?

There was the Slant Six Challenger back in the day. Everyone probably thought the same thing then.

He should have took the L like a real man and maybe gave you a thumbs up. Flashing the badge because he lost, thats a real bitch move.

To increase the average fuel economy across the product line, to help meet CAFE regulations... I agree, totally lame!

The vast majority of Challengers, Chargers, Magnums, etc. you see on the road are V6's. If it has a V8 of some kind, it'll have a Hemi, R/T or SRT badge. Just like everyone else, Dodge makes most of their money selling the cheap, base model V6 "secretary" cars to the masses that looks "sporty", but isn't much. Same vein as Mustangs.

Except the mustang v6 is a rocket. Challenger is slow.

The new V6 Camaros and Mustangs are definitely faster now (~300hp), but I'm not sure they qualify as a "rocket"!

For a V6 they are darn fast.

Compared to a Challenger V6 they are a rocket ! The Dodge is a pooch.

As a matter of fact this is from Motor Trend.

The new 3.7 Mustang a musclecar. Now if you're reeling from the idea of a Mustang V-6 ever being labeled with that word, or if you can't believe how far that meatball just flew from your mouth, chew on this: 0 to 60 in 5.1 seconds and the quarter mile in 13.7 at 102.0 mph. The Hemi-powered 376-horse DodgeChallengerR/T isn't any quicker to 60 and is just a tenth ahead at the quarter. Moreover, the new 3.7 is nearly as quick as last year's V-8-powered GT, which put down 4.9 and 13.5 at 104.2

So for the record they are faster than the TBSS (as tested).

So call them what you want :)
