If you’re a sports car enthusiast, you may have woken up this morning wondering, “Is there a Dodge dealer near me who can tell me how the Dodge Challenger compares to the Ford Mustang?” Drivers who are curious about how the top performers compare can rest assured that the Dodge Challenger outshines its legendary competitor in some significant ways.


As is the case for people shopping for trucks like the RAM 1500, engine choices are important for motorists who are in the market for a muscle car like the Dodge Challenger. All but the Dodge sports car’s base engine are more powerful than its rival’s in a line-by-line comparison. Looking at each vehicle’s top engines, the Dodge Challenger smokes its competitor.

The top-of-the-line engine in the Dodge Challenger produces a whopping 807 hp and 707 lbs-ft of torque. When it comes to the Ford Mustang, the car’s top engine generates 625 lbs-ft of torque and 760 hp.

Daily Practicality

Motorists looking for a Dodge Challenger for sale in GA often tell us that they want an iconic muscle car, but they don’t want to compromise on the daily practicality of their vehicle. The Dodge Challenger doesn’t force anyone to compromise because the car has a 16.2-cubic foot trunk that’s the largest in the vehicle’s class. By comparison, the trunk in the Ford Mustang measures a comparatively paltry 13.5 cubic feet.

Both vehicles come with standard rear-wheel drive, which is great for the track but not always the preferable set up for people using either car as a daily driver. Given the changeable weather we experience at our Baxley, GA Dodge dealership throughout a given year, the Dodge Challenger is the superior choice because the sports car is eligible for all-wheel drive.
