http://www.allpar.com/news/index.php/2014/12/cadillac-launches-charger-challenger

I have to say as a number one fan of both Mopars and GM, this article comes across as asinine and poor compared to Bill's usual work. No one ever said anything about the CTS-V competing with a Charger, and that's for good reason. He admits that they don't compete, but then goes on to make some pointless comparisons anyway, and further enrages by insulting the CTS-V by insinuating that the foreign cars are a better choice.

Last time I checked it was us against them, not us against each other. I would gladly have both of these cars in my stable. This article was completely pointless, and just attacks the CTS-V even though Cadillac never positioned it against the Hellcat and they would not likely be cross-shopped.

A better comparison would be against the 300 SRT, as they are both luxury cars with muscle.

GMI [...] Individual posts however, run the gamut...
Did you see the thread where this one guy asked another guy if he wanted to play swords...?

On a completely unrelated note, why is there no 'This Thread Is Useless Without Video' smiley?

The charger and challenger are based off the Mercedes E class previous generation or two. I'm sure it's a capable luxury car when the interior is properly outfitted,

The hellcat motor sounds bad @ss! Not a fan of the charger looks this time around....although the challenger hellcat looks awesome ....

The cts v is obviously a level above the hellcat but you pay for it....probably with another 20 or 30 percent...

Actual journalism is essentially DOA.

Perhaps the guy doesn't read GMI and thus is uneddymikayted regarding what lugggg-zoooo-reee really is, vs high HP cars for the hoi polloi which of course the POS Charger Hellfeline really is.

Caddy is reaching for Mercedes country, NOT Dodge country.

Hopefully Bob or Bill will sober up and grok that the German III are what Caddy is shooting for, and that Chrysler is the more appropriate division to address regarding luxostatus than Dodge is.

Or in the immortal words of someone: whatever. :)

GMI staffer's articles are always professional and well written. Individual posts however, run the gamut. They(Allpar) seem to have no shame, or sense of.....?
... grammar, spelling, and cohesive thought.

On what planet are the SRT Charger and CTS-V cross-shopped? While I love the SRT Charger I'm thinking anyone that purchases the V-Series is going to find the Charger too low-brow and unrefined. The SRT Charger is the car the Duke boys would build if their moonshine empire went nationwide.

Only in the used market, and long after the warranties have expired.

Hahaha sfbreh. What a classic.

I don't need to read the article but nobody is going to compare the Charger and the CTS-V. Ever. At all.

A poorly written article from Allpar? No...

Allpar people are some of the most devout loyalists that I've ever come in contact with.

That's true, but still the article should have been labeled as an op-ed piece. Then again the forum members are almost exclusively in thrall to a few posters, one of which was a former Chrysler engineer and considers himself to be God, so you can call them "loyalists" whereas most people would call them fanbois.
