Dodge Charger vs. Ford Mustang: Muscle Car Matchup

The 2019 Dodge Chargerand 2019 Ford Mustang are both iconic American muscle cars with a following in Chatham. So, Mustang or Charger? What is the best choice when it comes to performance and interior amenities? See the results after comparing the two head-to-head at Green Dodge.

Engine Performance

No matter if you choose the Dodge Charger or the Ford Mustang, you will have four engine options to select from. However, if you want a Supercharged HEMI® engine for maximum performance, that engine is only available on the Charger. When you compare the trim levels built for superior performance, the Charger comes out on top:

  • Dodge Charger: The Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® SRT® Hellcat V8 engine is sure to impress with its outstanding 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
  • Ford Mustang: A 5.2L FPC V8 falls a bit short with 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque.

Need for Speed

When it comes to speed, it’s no surprise that the more powerful Dodge Charger engine leads to faster times on the track:

  • Dodge Charger: Clocks in with a top speed of 204 miles per hour
  • Ford Mustang: Trails behind with a top speed of 160 miles per hour

Drivers in Decatur who prioritize power and speed in their muscle car will definitely want to opt for the Dodge Charger.

Passenger and Cargo Space

Even muscle car enthusiasts need a vehicle that can function beyond the track. When it comes to seating capacity and an interior for daily use, you will once again want to choose the Charger:

  • Dodge Charger: This 5-seater offers plenty of room for passengers to sit comfortably with its 104.7 cubic feet of passenger space. The convenience of four doors is also a benefit.
  • Ford Mustang: Passengers will likely feel more cramped in this 4-seater. With only 82.8 cubic feet of space and just 2 doors, the Mustang isn’t as accommodating for occupants.

Not only is there more room for passengers inside the Charger, but there is also more room for cargo. The Dodge Charger has 16.1 cubic feet of cargo volume, plus 60/40 folding rear seats. With the Mustang, you will only have 13.5 cubic feet and 50/50 folding rear seats.
