Re: Plan B: Replacing wife's car now and waiting for the 2014 SRT8

I just noticed on the Dodge website that they've upped the local cash back another $750... which now means I could be paying as low as $29,515 for this thing! That's a HECK of a deal considering it...

If it can achieve a 15 MPG combined official rating I might just say "screw the wait for the 8-speed" and put an order in. I'm guessing 13 city and 18 highway since the last generation SRT8 ended...
