    So I have to ask what is the average MPG you guys are getting out of the HC with the 8 speed. I'm hearing that guys are actually getting upwards of 25 mpg going around 70 mph. That to me is impressive. Hell I barely get 23 out of the '12 Durango on the highway.

    Haha....ya I get about that with the Ram, the Magnum and the Durango so I'm expecting no better with the HC around town. And 21 in a new engine isn't to bad actually it's amazing when you think that it has 707 HP!

    15 to 15.5 in mixed city/highway. Best I have seen on the highway is around 20-21 but I cruise at 83-85

    How much better do you like your HC compared to your previous Caddy?

    I wouldn't say I like my Hellcat better they are very different. I like that the Hellcat can run the same 10 second quarter mile as my heavily modded V but with a warranty.

    The V was a lot more on the luxury side where the Cat is a big brutish muscle car. They are both great cars.

    The new V has 650 hp and will be an awesome car.

    Have you been inside a Charger yet? I'm hearing that the interior is nicer than the Chally? Either way they are both impressive rides. And yes great numbers with a warranty!

    Who cares. Get a Prius if you are concerned about gas mileage ;)

    If I was concerned this wouldn't be the 3rd Hemi in the garage and 4th V8 currently in the stable. It's just nice to brag to people that it gets decent mileage on the highway.

    Everyone knows that a heavy foot can bring wide smiles to the face of a Hellcat driver. I just like the looks of others when you tell them that a honkin muscle car can get upwards of 17 miles on average around a small city with some playing.

    Buddy I did have thoughts about a CTS V Wagon pre Challenger Hellcat but they are just not good looking cars

    It's going to be incredible, a true M and AMG fighter. But I can't say that I've warmed up to the styling. I like the looks of the ATS-V, but I don't care for the new CTS-V. The price is also a bit on the steep side. It's a lot pricier than the last generation.
