Dodge Charger vs. Ford Mustang: Muscle Car Matchup

Both the 2019 Dodge Charger and 2019 Ford Mustang are true American icons, so there’s no wonder why San Leandro-area drivers compare them so frequently. If you’ve been considering taking home a slice of true American muscle, then compare the Dodge Charger vs. Ford Mustang to decide which one best reflects your personality and lifestyle! 

Engine Performance

The most exciting part of buying a muscle car is the performance, and while both the Dodge Charger and Ford Mustang both offer a selection of powerful engines, there’s no question that the Dodge Charger offers the more thrilling performance options. Compare Dodge Charger vs. Ford Mustang performance to see for yourself!

Dodge Charger: The Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® SRT® Hellcat V8 engine offers an incredible 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful production sedan of all-time.

Ford Mustang: The top-of-the-line Mustang GT350R does offer a 5.2L V8 engine with 526 horsepower and a trick flat-plane crank, but it simply doesn’t offer the firepower of the Dodge Charger.

Top Speed

While the Ford Mustang certainly offers thrilling performance, it’s no match for the world’s fastest production sedan, the Dodge Charger Hellcat. Thrillseekers driving from Walnut Creek to Fremont will surely prefer the Dodge Charger.

Dodge Charger: Clocks in with a top speed of 204 miles per hour

Ford Mustang: Trails behind with a top speed of 169 miles per hour 

Interior Space & Features

While both the Dodge Charger and Ford Mustang both come with advanced connectivity features and premium comfort, there’s no question that the Dodge Charger is both more comfortable and more practical. If you plan on using your muscle car with any sort of frequency, you should absolutely consider choosing the Charger:

Dodge Charger: Boasting a total of 104.7 cubic feet of passenger space, the Dodge Charger seats 5 adult passengers in comfort. The 4-door sedan layout also makes exit and entry a breeze. And with 16.1 cubic feet of cargo space, there’s plenty of space to pack for your weekend adventures.

Ford Mustang: While there’s undeniable charm that comes with a sleek coupe, it makes getting in and out of the cramped back seats far more difficult. And with seating for only four and merely 85.4 cu-ft of passenger space, passengers will feel more cramped inside the Ford Mustang.
