Default PB 2013 MY Challenger review

Well looky what we have here for a week. A brand spanker 2013 spec base 4x4. So we have this for a week to have a good look at and scope out the new changes on this model over the MY 2012 model. It's an auto which is good. We will do fuel consumption figures (towing/as is) and a little offroading later in the week. Photos and videos will be posted here and Challengerpoint (Facebook) over the week.

No difflock on this one, standard on LS/XLS!
Side and curtain airbags.

So have done a couple of videos. Sound quality might be a bit ordinary but it is the best we can get!

Currently running up the Hume Hwy doing a fuel economy run. The rig is as above with the trusty Aussie Jays camper weighing in about 1.2 tonne with 2 people on board and gear. Current reading on average fuel consumption says 13.7. Who wants to take a stab at what we get?
The run is between Euroa and Wodonga.

Ok so we did 153 klms (actual off GPS) and loaded 19.40 ltrs. That gave us 12.68 ltrs/100klms. That was keeping on 100klms/hour.. Actual klms on speedo showed 154.7 and average fuel on display was 13.7.

I think you need to do some more K's and do a couple of tankfuls ...

That figure looks too good for an auto....
