A much better car than dodge or chevy,a better center of gravity.

It’s a little too early to say it’s a much better car than others. It’s not been out long enough to determine this. The Chargers are an awesome vehicle and more powerful then the Ford's. Time will tell. Give them a year or two on the road and we can get an accurate opinion from departments.

Must have bad weather in Oklahoma City. Everybody seems to be buying Tahoes down here in the southeast. Good price, sturdy vehicle, lots of room and comfort, not bad gas economy and solid reputation. Sounds like a winner to me. Stay safe.

We use the Chevy Tahoes in our department and travel mostly city streets and they have horrible gas mpg, one of the worst vehicles ever in our fleet. Not sure what you guys do but if you drive a Tahoe the mpg suck. The Ecoboost sedan in AWD is one of the fastest cars in LE and has almost double the mpg of any other vehicles currently available. Hopefully they hold up as well but only time will tell. There are agencies that have PI Sedans AWD ecoboost pushing 100k miles with really no issues. So I have high hopes.
