I have never really liked them. But to each their own.

As a 4 door full size sedan built in canada and only available with an automatic trans, I disagree with calling it an american muscle car.

You seem to forget that many of the old school muscle cars were automatic. The marauder was the only other one built and it only lasted 2 years. Its a 4dr family muscle car. I still think they would be smart to offer a manual in it. It wouldn't be hard at all and the market is definitely there.

I would definitely consider a charger if a manual was available. If I'm getting a car with a V8 I want it to have a stick. Other than that, I do like them, I just hesitate to call it a muscle car.

If they could put this rear end on the first gen it would be perfect. I'm really liking the car the more I drive it.

I had one as a rental in 2010, the 3.5 high output. It only got about 15 mpg. I took it back for a Impala, it got about 23 mpg in the city. 4 more then my Ranger...

CTSV and the G8 are both nice cars and I wouldn't mind any of them. I just like the charger a bit more because it is more of a muscle car in sense. Cadilac never made muscle cars. They are more of a mixture of a sports car then anything. G8 given pontiac did make muscle cars back in the day. The G8 is borrowed from the Australians. So to me it isn't an american muscle car.

If I buy a 4dr "modern muscle car" it will be a charger or a marauder.

Not really looking at one just for the muscle car. Im tired of having a two door car and a 4 door car that has more "muscle" would be cool.
