Cruising The Oregon Coast In A 2009 Challenger R/T

Posted November 24, 2008 3:59 PM by CarDomain

Everyone who's driven our 5.7 L hemi Challenger agrees that this car is dying to be out on the open road—with its girth, its power, and its interior visibility issues, this Mopar just isn't very happy in the city. Dugging around in second gear at 30 mph is torture—this car just wants to go! So I picked up my boy Chris and we hit the road for the Oregon coast, one of the most awesome stretches of highway in the world. The Challenger agreed—and once it was out of traffic and out of sight of the law, the car was more fun than I ever could've imagined.

Despite perks such its burly launch and tire-roasting abilities, the Challenger is a just a lovely cream puff of a highway cruiser. The huge trunk and comfy seats make it great for long trips, and it's roomy as hell—a way bigger car than you might expect it to be. It's also a blast to drive. The sweet spot, at least in moderate weekend traffic, feels like about 85 mph or so, the point at which the car still dodges easily in and out of traffic without feeling reckless enough to be a heat-score.
