FCA US LLC has recorded another record month of sales. September 2015 posted record sales for seven vehicles in the line-up. The entire Jeep brand sales were up over 40%. Much like cow bell you can always use more JEEP.
Challenger sales topped out at 4552 units for September setting its all time monthly sales record and bringing total year-to-date Chally sales up to 51,949 (which is a 38% increase from last year at the end of Sept).
I'm sure these numbers will be front and center in the negotiations with the UAW. Will be interesting to see how Sergio and his team spin these sales gains in the labor talks.

Compare and Contrast Challenger Scat Pack and SRT 392
So there has been some heated debate as of late about the similarities and differences between the 392 SRT and the Scat Pack (reminds me a little bit of the egg dispute in Gulliver's Travels). Well, of course we couldn't resist stirring the pot a little bit. Just a reminder to keep it classy people.
The 2015 Dodge Challenger lineup is the largest in the segment, with 10 different trimlines ranging from the base V6 SXT to the top of the line Hellcat package. The downside to having 10 trimlines for one car is that some consumers lose track of which features come with which trimline, and in the case of the 2015 Challenger, there seems to be some confusion about what makes the R/T Scat Pack and the SRT 392 different. Today, we bring you a detailed look at what features are common and unique between these two 485hp Mopar muscle cars.
First off, the biggest source of confusion on the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack and the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 is the fact that they both come with the 6.4L, 392 cubic inch SRT Hemi. This mill delivers 485 horsepower and 475lb-ft of torque in both of these Challengers, with a standard 6-speed Tremec manual transmission or an optional 8-speed automatic sending the power to the rear wheels with the help of a 3.90 gear set. The drivetrains of the Scat Pack and the SRT 392 are essentially identical, so what makes the two different?
The key functional differences are in the wheels, brakes and suspension systems, as the SRT 392 Challenger features the massive 6-piston Brembo brake package and the adaptive suspension system found in the mighty Hellcat. This system includes 15.4 inch rotors up front under those 6-piston calipers, while the rears have 4-piston Brembo calipers over 13 inch rotors. Both of these 392-powered Challengers come with 20 inch wheels, but the Scat Pack has a unique 20x9 wheel while the SRT 392 has a similar 20x9.5 wheel to that found on the Hellcat model.
Most importantly, the Challenger SRT 392 features the 3-mode Bilstein adaptive suspension system, which allows the driver to enjoy the SRT drive mode system that is also found in the Hellcat Challenger. The Scat Pack has a great sport-tuned suspension setup, but the SRT 392 suspension package offers the driver the choice of picking from Street, Sport and Track modes with active dampers that stiffen up for each mode.
The Dodge Challenger SRT 392 features the brakes, wheels, tires and suspension comopnents of the Hellcat package, which means that the SRT 392 offers far great handling capabilities than the Scat Pack – while the different modes afford the car a smoother ride when that... [Read More]

(Editor's note: always wondered why they didn't build AWD versions of the Charger Police car)
