Modern Muscle Cars: Ford Mustang v. Chevrolet Camaro v. Dodge Challenger

2019-mustang-2018-challenger-2018-camaro

Since the mid-1960s, Americans have associated muscle cars with the very essence of our great nation. Loud, proud, and powerful, these performance vehicles are unlike any other class of car.

In some ways, the muscle car is precisely the same as it’s always been: rear-wheel-drive, front-engine, and styled for impact. However, the type and degree of performance available from these machines is vastly different than ancestral vehicles. Muscle cars are as fast around corners as they are in a straight line, some make more power than contemporary supercars, and four-cylinder turbocharged versions are even fuel-efficient.

With each passing year, the three muscle car kings — Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang, and Dodge Challenger — grow more potent, technologically advanced, and altogether exciting. Frankly, it’s becoming hard to keep up with all the special editions and model year improvements. Alas, we’ll do our best in this modern muscle car matchup.
