This last weekend we found ourselves in Orange County, CA and so I rented this…
Looks (2 Gold Stars)
Are they ever going to refresh this thing? The Challenger has been mostly untouched since the 2009MY. I like the iconic look, but there has to be some way to freshen things up on the outside.
Power/Fuel Economy (3 Thumbs Up)
This was a Rental Spec. Nothing fancy. It was fine. I did get to run a 6.9 0-60 time while getting on the freeway. I didn’t have a chance to test out the “Stopping Distance” feature. It was sporty and seemed to handle well. It turns better than my Accord.
Off-Road Ability (1/10)
Are you dumb? Don’t take this thing off road.
Storage/Tech (5 Gold Doubloons)
Cloth seats, manual air. It did have
Bluetooth though. Why does this car not
have a back-up camera? It needs it. I hated having to try and see out the back
whenever I put it in Reverse. Infotainment was fine. Worked well. Storage space is limited as you could image.
Overall, I think I like the current-gen Mustang over the Challenger. National did have some Camaro’s sitting on the lot but I grabbed this instead. I enjoyed renting this thing but I don’t know if I could daily it. Maybe I am prematurely turning into an old man…
