Dodge Charger vs Ford Mustang

How Does the New Dodge Charger Compare to the New Ford Mustang?

With muscle cars back on the rise here in Texas, it’s important to ask the question, which one is the right fit for you? For years, drivers have been choosing to drive muscle cars because of their head turning style, ground shaking power and achieved status out on the road. These days, however, muscle cars like the new Dodge Charger offer far more than that. The Charger still provides you with iconic styling, tremendous power and respect out on the road, but it also offers many practical everyday applications that make it just as much of a daily driver as it is an ornament in your driveway. If you’re thinking of making the new Charger your next vehicle, you’re probably wondering how it stacks up against comparable vehicles from the competition. That’s why we’re going to compare it to the new Ford Mustang, in order to provide you with the perspective you need to figure out whether the new Charger is the right option for you!

Dodge Charger vs. Ford Mustang

  • One of the most important factors to consider when buying a muscle car is power, and while the new Mustang offers eight more horsepower than the Charger at base model level, the Charger out powers the Mustang on every other engine option as you climb in trims. At the highest model level up, the Mustang offers a 5.2-liter V8 engine that produces 526-horsepower, while the highest model level Charger comes with a 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 engine that produces a whopping 707-horsepower, trumping the Mustang by 181-horsepower!
  • The Charger comes standard with an eight-speed transmission while the Mustang comes equipped with a six-speed transmission.
  • At base model level, the Charger offers a higher estimated fuel economy than the Mustang does, achieving 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, while the Mustang reaches 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
  • Not only does the Charger offer a higher estimated fuel economy, it also has a larger fuel capacity, allowing you to go further and fill up less frequently.
  • Whether you have a family or you just want to be able to fit your friends comfortably, the new Charger is far more spacious than the Mustang. The Mustang only comes in a coupe or convertible configuration with seating for four passengers, while the Charger is a four-door sports sedan and offers comfortable seating for five.
  • How much more spacious is the Charger than the Mustang for passengers? The Mustang offers 29-inches of rear legroom while the Charger offers 40.1-inches of rear leg room, and a total passenger volume of 104.7 cubic feet compared to 82.8 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Mustang.
  • If you have any daily chores or errands to run, the cargo space in the trunk of the Charger is far more accommodating than the Mustang, with 16.5 cubic feet of trunk space compared to 13.5 in the Mustang.
