    Because threads like this is created comparing the STS-V with lesser cars, thats why the 469hp STS-V has too see the light of day.

    I have a feeling most folks will be satisfied enough with the features and amenities in the Charger, and it'll be a huge hit, even though I hate looking at it.

    I'll agree with that. Of course you're gonna get someone in here saying they're not competitors, blah blah different classes of vehicles blah blah. If you ask me the Charger can burn in Hell. It's ugly! Plus, the STS-V is well, a V! 469 HP doesn't hurt either. V has this one hands down.

    What the hell are you comparing it to a Charger for? Ever heard of a 300 SRT-8??

    Basically the STS-V is going to beat either SRT-8 in just about every aspect of performance and luxury, but the 300 SRT-8 is going to be at least $20k less.

    Re: STS-V Vs. Upcoming 425 hp Charger

    In comparison to the 300C SRT and the Charger I would most certainly take the STS-V. But probably only if you stuck me in a room, made me choose between those two only and I didnt have any other possible options.

    I agree its not really much of a comparison on paper, but have no doubt, comparisons will be made.

    One great thing about Chrysler though is the terrible depreciation. In a few years I wouldn't mind a 300C.

    Just saw the SRT-8 in black tonite at the dealership. Very impressive. I would swear that it appeared longer than a regular 300C.
