    Should I go SRT or RT AWD?

    Hello, long time Mopar buyer. Every vehicle I’ve owned since 2012 has been a Mopar. I’ve had two scat pack challengers and love the 392 motor. I am deciding between a 2018 SRT loaded except for DVD with a sticker of nearly $72k. It has 300 miles and the small town dealership has had it for a year. No issues. They are desperate to get rid of it. Got them down to $57,000. I have the funds to purchase it and insurance is fairly cheap. I am also looking at a 2019 DRT AWD with black top and loaded as well for $47,000. Anyone; have thoughts that they don’t need the SRT and could save some cash? I fear I may regret not getting the SRT since I’ve been only considering that. The responsible adult in me has reared its ugly head though. Thx!!

    Since you said you got moneyz, don’t see a reason not to get srt, cause seems like you like faster than average cars.

    If money isn't an issue, why wouldn't you get the SRT?

    I was caught between that rock and a hard place decision........drove an R/T and a Hemi Citadel and considering I, like you, love
    shall we say higher performance vehicles, the R/T made me smile, but the SRT made me chuckle and giggle everytime I hit the
    loud pedal.
    I say it is better to have the power and not need to use it, then to need extra power and not have it. I used my SRT to tow my
    collector car up the mountains in AZ.
    Wow, what an all around vehicle for MY purposes. Much of my driving is highway......and I even get as high as 21 mpg on trips of 400
    mile and such and yes this is done by calculator and fuel used.
    I love the rumble and very much the handling of this beast. It's NOT perfect but it is perfect for ME.
    No one can answer your question except you. If you rely on someone else to make up your mind, it will be a love hate thing.
    To thine own self be TRUE..... and find a vehicle that fits YOU.........
    My wife wants her own Durango and even she mentioned another SRT. Uhhhhhhhh no........my wife is NOT an SRT owner. But she
    can have an R/T and she will be fine.
    The more I drive the SRT, the more I like it. I can't say that for ALL the cars, even the hi performance ones I've had from Corvettes to Muscle Cars.
    Good luck.............$57000 for an SRT, I'd be all over that like buzzards on a gut wagon.

    Get the SRT so you wont have any regrets. Trust me when someone else pulls up next to you in car or truck with the 392 motor and you are in your R/T you are gonna be pissed.
