    Hey Everyone! Excited for everyone that is expecting their new Hellcat soon. Bought an SRT*8 Core last November and then they announce
    supercharged Hemi. LOL. So I'm going to hang here and share your experiences, and contemplate a trade in for a new HC. Bummer about
    the Sepi leather and black hoods? Excited nonetheless. Shag

    Well you can do what we are trading up. Our 2012 STR8 is very nice, and it only has 8k on the odometer. The dealer is giving us big bucks for it.

    I have heard everyone is getting good money on srt8 trade ins,, so you should give it a try,, at this point in the game,, you won't get a car until spring, so it will work out

    Well, when I was in the market last year, I compared the SRT Core Challenger to the Camaro SS (2SS/RS is the top pkg for the SS) as both cars were in the same price range. Drove the Core and even though it felt a bit more powerful, the interior looked and felt cheap and I decided to go with the SS. Now with the new Hellcat having all that power, they also refined the interior too. At this point I was looking at the ZL1 or the Hellcat but decided to go with the Hellcat as it has over 120 more HP, and 100 more Trq than the ZL1.
