    I had a 2014 V6 Honda Accord(which got replaced by the 392 Charger) and still have a '09 Jeep Wrangler JKU for offroading. The serious white people problem I have now is that the Jeep is just so painful to drive now. The charger is loaded with comfort, features, and let's face it awesome power that the Jeep is just sitting in the garage. Used to be I would commute in the Honda and ramble around in the Jeep all weekend, but now I just want to drive the 392; its so bad I don't even want to drive the Jeep to off roading spots. What's out there or coming out that I could fetch to replace the Jeep. looking for off-road capability with performance? Thinking about ordering a 2017 Ford Raptor(but worried that the rumors of the 2018 with a turbo v8 instead of v6 are true) and the Cherokee SRT just can't cut it off road like a Wranger.

    depending on what you consider off road the raptor may not be what your looking for. A wrangler for off road is hard to compete with.

    Get a hemi swapped into the Jeep? ;)

    When I traded in my Challenger Core for the Rubicon it took me a week before I regretted the new lack of power. Now I commute in the Jeep and it's painful. If I need to pass or get out of the way? Ugh. And the transmission is about as smooth as a bed of nails. But for offroading? This is pretty fun. I also have a CJ-7 with the old AMC 401 in it, so it's got boatloads of torque. But the Rubi has oodles of comfort compared to that, so my family will actually come with.

    I've considered the hemi swap as a backup plan if I can't get a Hellcat this year and want to wait until it all dies down.

    I bought my daughter a new 2012 Challenger 392 in blue with silver stripes (her college colors) fully optioned. I take care of all the maintenance so I have driven this beast often. Nothing can compare with a full size touring car with so much power on tap. My 20 year old vette will find a new home this year and in 2017 (when all the craziness settles down) I will order a hellcat charger. My wife and I (and our two cats) will be taking some road trips hitting some of the finest car shows and cruises in the eastern seaboard. Good luck with the 392.
