2018 Dodge Challenger vs. 2018 Ford Mustang | Dallas, Georgia

For years, the Ford Mustang has served as an iconic emblem of the American muscle car. If drivers wanted a sporty ride with power behind the wheels, they’d go for the Mustang. However, the Dodge Challenger has quickly risen to the Mustang’s level since its third-generation rerelease. Is the Mustang all reputation, and could the Dodge Challenger be the better option?

Power

When it comes to muscle cars, the most important thing to look at is engine power. The Mustang’s entry-level EcoBoost engine delivers 310 hp, and the 5.0-liter V8 on upper trims increase that to 460 hp. Then, if you want to go all the way, the range-topping Shelby models get 526 hp.

The Dodge Challenger, meanwhile, offers an available V8 that’s the most powerful in its class at 485 hp. The top-of-the-line SRT Hellcat and Demon models are in leagues all their own, cranking out 707 and 840 hp, respectively.

 

Performance

Power isn’t all it takes to offer a thrilling driving experience. The Dodge Challenger offers new options for 2018 like an available Performance Handling package on several V8 trims. Additionally, Red Brembo brake calipers are also an option on several models. The Ford Mustang also offers a couple performance packages, but they are only available on models equipped with the EcoBoost engine or on the GT models.

 

Interior

There are a number of interior options among the various trim levels of the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger. Both of them have available luxuries like leather-appointed seating and their brands’ respective infotainment systems. Some of the performance-oriented trim levels have removed a lot of amenities (like the Dodge Demon removing backseats and the audio system) in the name of weight reduction, but you can easily add these back on for a considerably low cost.

 

Verdict

Ultimately, when it comes to power and performance, there’s nothing like the 2018 Dodge Challenger. The Ford Mustang may have its status as a legend, but in the modern era, the Challenger reigns supreme.
