2021 Dodge Challenger vs 2021 Ford Mustang

2021 Dodge Challenger vs 2021 Ford Mustang

There are three original muscle cars that continue to astound enthusiasts and drivers alike with their performance and dedication year after year. They are the Dodge Challenger, Ford Mustang, and Chevrolet Camaro.

 

The 2021 Dodge Challenger vs 2021 Ford Mustang debate is central to discovering which muscle car has infused contemporary style into its bones, its power, and its image. When compared side by side, it is obvious that the 2021 Dodge Challenger can offer true muscle car performance, as well as passenger comfort, in Calgary.

Dodge built the 2021 Challenger with a standard 305-hp V6 engine that pairs exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission. There are also five other engine options available throughout the Challenger lineup, including the Hellcat engine that delivers 807 horsepower.

 

Ford opted for a small but might engine in its 2021 Mustang--a 2.3-litre Ecoboost engine that delivers 310 horsepower and comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, though a 10-speed automatic is available. The Mustang offers only one other engine--a 460-hp V8.

Both the Challenger and Mustang come standard with an infotainment system. While Dodge provides the latest Uconnect system on all Challenger models, Ford only offers SYNC on lower models while SYNC 3 is an upgrade. Both vehicles feature smartphone connectivity and Bluetooth.

While most buyers want a muscle car for what is under the hood instead of inside the cabin, the interior design, quality, and space is something to consider. Both Dodge and Ford continue to look to the past with their designs, modeling the Challenger and Mustang off of their original designs but with modern upgrades.

 

In terms of space, both offer a good amount of cargo space, but the Challenger wins in terms of capacity. In addition, the 2021 Dodge Challenger could potentially be used as a family vehicle in Calgary. While the Mustang offers style and comfort for the driver, it lacks the rear passenger space found in the Challenger.
