    So, what are these like?

    i wonder, would it be worth getting one, or way to overpriced for its class?

    much improvement over old v6?

    Yes, much improved, but why even bother?

    You're just going to be laughed at.

    interior and handling are better than the old car.

    So at least it makes a decent slow car :hs:

    For the money they're pretty nice cars, powerful enough for most people, easier on insurance, and they're still right wheel drive.

    I have known people to buy V6's to save on insurance because of their age/history. They put on a blower and a few other mods and they were quite impressive. Sure the same could be done with the 05's.
     
  9. meh. buy a v8 and give the v6 to your younger sister

    There is always going to be a car that is faster no matter what you own.

    it's just that you look at the RWD selection right now for under $25,000.

    hmm....you've got, well, besides trucks and suvs, Mustangs, some bug ass crown vics, um........i think thats it. there isn't even a camaro anymore to compete with.

    I'd get one if you can't afford the insurance on a 8. Interior is sweet, power has been improved from 04, great looks. :bigthumb:

    he has a point :mamoru:

    I was just saying for what you would pay for a V6 mustang just to go fast, you could probably go faster for cheaper

    true but look at the McLaren F1 built in 1990's and is still one of the fastest cars ever made.

    The V6, RWD Dodge Charger will probably be close to $25,000 too.
