Wait for the hemi Charger. Supposedly next year Dodge is releasing a 2 dr coupe Magnum, which will be rebadged 'Charger'. Now, wouldn't that get your goat?
And if they up to a 6-spd manual with that engine -whoot-whoot!!!. I'd hit it. The Supercharged N* (stock in a Pontiac) probably won't happen for at least 2 years due to the Caddy still not having one -Cadillac WILL NOT let Pontiac be the first with a Boosted N* V8 from the factory. There is a good chance of the N* getting RWD and the gas saving 4-cyl running mode for economy.
All-in-all it'* gonna be a good ball game to watch -Detroit style (Dodge vs Pontiac).
Now where are my Cracker Jacks and Beer.

blown N* with DOD > HEMI.

If you want the HEMI I would go the 300C route to avoid the station wagon. A Magnum coupe would be awesome, I would definitly get one of those if I had a choice.

The charger is a 4 door and you can either get it in the 5.7 liter Hemi or u can get the SRT-8 version which will have the 6.1 liter Hemi with a six speed, only thing is the 6.1 doesnt have the multi-displacement so your gonna have to pay for the gas

Bah! If you can afford to buy a new car you can afford to fill up with gas! If I bought a sport car (GPGXP or Hemi Charger) I wouldnt be complaining about gas prices, it would be the cost of new tires.

It'* a tough choice. If you want a RWD monster, which are always fun, go for the Magnum. If you want the style, class, and technology, then go with the GXP.
