Is the V6 300 truely slower than the front wheel drive 3.5L?hardwareguy said:The fact that it's still 250HP is disturbing.... The new Charger is heavier than my trep.... A LOT heavier! The Charger SXT wieghs in at 3820 pounds! My 2002 ES is only 3487 pounds. The drag coefficient for the Intrepid is .30, the Charger is .33, so guess which is faster. Yup, even with just 234HP, I routinely have fun with SXT chargers and Magnums. They don't like it one bit!
That's why they brought out the Hemi, the 3.5 Charger is getting 0-60 times of 8.9 seconds! 6.0 seconds with the 5.7 Hemi is more like it!
Never driven one myself, but numbers I've seen were all over the place. the 0-60 times have been listed at anything from 7.8 to 9.0 seconds.jfsram said:Is the V6 300 truely slower than the front wheel drive 3.5L?
I don't want to draw too many conclusions from a small drag race but I had an old man stay door to door with my Tbird and it's very similar to my LHS in acceleration.
I used the above theory to take his lane during a 2 lane into 1 scenario. Did he surprise me!
I also thought I remember reading 15 second quarters for the 6 cylinder 300.
