#16 of 25 Charger RT versus Impala SS

We have a 2007 Hemi Grand Cherokee too. Like the Hemi but the SS is good for me in NE PA. I like the 300 interior too but it is a Chrysler versus Dodge and it is more upscale than the Charger. The Navigation system in the Jeep seems to be more generic, in the SS, I have the directions plan and you just call Onstar, give them the address and they send the driving instructions through the radio with voice and turn by turn. Very easy to use.
The exhaust note is the same, the flip / fold back seat in the SS meand no more damage to the leather when hauling.
Both have remote start and satellite radio built in. Actually, its apples versus oranges outside of FWD versus RWD.

Is this even a contest? Dodge Charger all the way! First of all it's a way faster car b/c it's got the hemi! Second the body lines are way nicer than an impala.
Also Ryan Newman, driver of the No. 12 Alltel Dodge Chargerjust surprised lucky fan Jimmie Funell in Rapid City, SD yesterday. This guy won a free trip to Bristol Motor Speedway where his name will appear on Newman's Alltel Dodge! How sick is that! I've never heard of anything like that with an Impala!!!
Check out Newman surprising the fan:

Unless it's the SRT version, the two car's peformance are identical. The Impala interior is by far nicer than the Charger but nowhere near as nice as the Chrysler 300.
Nascar - not a fan, doesn't mean a thing to me.
As far as the Hemi engine,a far cry from the 1970 version as installed in the Dodge Challenger, Charger, Super Bee etc. The Hemi is great for our Grand Cherokee but if there was a rebate on the Trailblazer SS in12/06, we would have bought it. Hard to pay sticker for the Trailblazer SS versus $4000 rebate for the Hemi Grand Cherokee plus a generous dealer discount.

But the big difference is that the Impala is still a FWD grocery/family hauler. You can't expect too much performance with all the torque steer and uneven weight distrubution.

I bought my 2007 Charger R/t new and it's been a disappointment from the start. car broke down at 1143 miles and filled the engine with gasoline. After repairs,motor has a knock and the dealership has refused to replace the engine. they have removed the engine and rebuilt it,but reinstalled the original piston rings,still knocks,replaced a/c compressor,still knocks,replaced belt tensioner,still knocks,removed and replaced left side cylinder head,still knocks. now they say they don't hear a knock,normal operation. Before you buy a Dodge Charger,Please read this edmunds forum on the transmission and all related finding from existing owners. I will never buy another Dodge product as long as I live. Should have stayed with Chevrolet. GM would have never put me throught what I have gone throught. Good luck if you buy Dodge/Chrysler product.

I am having the same problem with Waco Dodge. I got a new 2008 Avenger RT from them less than a month ago. There are some scratches on the car and on the steering column that was there when I bought it. I showed it to my salesperson when I bought the car. Since then I have just been getting the run around from them and the manager. Did you ever have any luck in dealing with them?

not quite sure but im pretty sure that model was based on a caprice... you cannot compare a new car to a 10+year old car...never tested the charger(i would choose the charger just cuz of looks + rear wheel) but i am not impressed with the base model impala of 06. would prefer ther 03 era of impalas to the new ones. right now im still in the late intrepids but charger is for me next year

Sorry it too so long to respond,but shortly after Allen Samuels took over the DCJ dealership,my Charger was taken care of very quickly. I no longer own the Charger. I have purchased from Allen Samuels Dodge two Challenger R/T. I recently traded my last R/T in on the car of my dream,(Challenger SRT8). I am treaded like family at the Allen Samuels Dodge Dealership in Waco,Tx. Wouldn't go anywhere else to purchase a vehicle. Atmosphere I totally heart warming and greeted with respect by everyone.
