2 totally different type of cars. One a 4 door 4 cyl. hatchback and the other a 2 door 6 cyl. pony car.

Better gas mileage, insurance, and ride with the PT. I love the Challengers but if I get one it's going to be the RT. Only 6 cyl. I would consider in that platform would be the 300 hp Mustang turbo V6.

Are you talking new pentastar with the 305 hp or old 3.5?

Plus for the PT would be used available cheap. Probably save 15K, ie 10K used for an older one or 12-14K for a newer one with low miles. Could get a new Challenger in the 22-25 K for the SE

Plus for the Challenger would be more HP, better gas mileage, larger car, modern interior. My brother has an RT with 6 spd and gets 25 mpg on highway.

I would assume the new V6 would do a little better so 27 mpg highway wouldnt be out of the question. An Auto 2.4 is probably 24 mpg highway.

If you want a nice large stylish car, the Challenger is it. It is very comfortable and has room for 5 adults and their luggage for a trip. Its only downside is some dont like 2 door cars.
