2020 Dodge Challenger vs 2020 Ford Mustang

While other companies focus on making vehicles that are comfortable on the highway at a reasonable speed, Dodge and Ford believe you should live life to the fullest by putting the pedal to the metal. In 2020, Dodge and Ford have released the latest versions of their Challenger and Mustang, and there is little doubt that these cars want to go! It's evident that both these vehicles have powerful engines, but they also have fabulous features that contribute to their incredible popularity. You honestly can't go wrong with either one of these vehicles, but which one is better? For the answer, continue reading as we go over both of these powerful muscle cars.

2020 Dodge Challenger Power & Handling

Dodge brings you the power right away with the SXT trim as it comes with a 3.6-liter engine that makes an impressive 303 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. You get a little bit of a boost with the R/T trim in the form of a 5.7-liter V8 that pumps out 372 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque. Scat Pack versions of the R/T come with a 6.4-liter V8 that comes with 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. Still not enough power? The SRT Hellcat provides drivers with a 6.2-liter V8 with a whopping 717 horsepower and an incredible 656 lb-ft of torque. The Hellcat Redeye ups the horsepower to a road crushing 797 horsepower. The SXT comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission, while all other trim gives you the choice of either an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual.

2020 Ford Mustang Power & Handling

There are a couple of engine options available for the Ford Mustang, and which one you get depends on the trim level. Most consumers will roll off the lot with a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes a good enough 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. EcoBoost and Ecoboost Premium models get you the same 2.3-liter engine but ups the horsepower to 330. GT models get a boost with a 5.0-liter V8 engine that pumps out 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Bullitt versions of the Mustang bump the horsepower up to 480. All engines come with a six-speed manual transmission, but there is an automatic if you choose. These engines certainly provide you with ample power, but if you want to burn the pavement, then the Dodge Challenger is your best bet.

2020 Dodge Challenger Features & Design

Five trim levels are available for the Dodge Challenger, and each comes with an incredible amount of features. Starting things off is the SXT, which comes with keyless entry and ignition, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and a Uconnect system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Moving up to the R/T Scat Pack adds to this with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, heated seats, and a heated steering wheel. At the top of the Challengers food chain are the two Hellcat variants. The SRT Hellcat comes with larger brakes, exterior styling changes, and an adaptive suspension, while the Hellcat Redeye provides lightweight Brembo brakes, a revised suspension, and gripper tires. You also have the option of a Widebody kit, which adds wider fenders to accommodate wider wheels and tires.

2020 Ford Mustang Features & Design

Like the Dodge Challenger, the Ford Mustang comes with five trim levels. Kicking things off is the EcoBoost, which comes with keyless entry and ignition, a 4.2-inch center display screen, and a six-speaker sound system. Moving up to the EcoBoost Premium adds to things with 18-inch wheels, leather upholstery, as well as tech features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Perhaps the best version of the Mustang is the GT, which adds power-adjustable front seats and rear parking sensors on top of the V8 engine. Meanwhile, GT Premium versions get a level 2 Performance package that has various suspension, tire and brake upgrades. The highest trim level on the Mustang is the Bullitt that comes with a Dark Bullitt-specific Highland Green paint option, unique wheels, various Bullitt logos, and deletion of the rear spoiler.

Conclusion:

While both vehicles certainly bring the muscle, we are going to give the victory to the Dodge Challenger. The engine options on the Challenger are more powerful, and there are more tech options for the Challenger than the Mustang. We also love the Challenger Widebody package, which is truly one of a kind. Are you interested in the Dodge Challenger?
