Dodge Challenger

I believe he was referring to NA vs. NA. In that particular category the 392 does win. Dodge went for the bigger block high displacement engine like the nostalgic muscle cars of the 70s. In that category, and in the creature comforts category, most folks would agree that Dodge did win. In straight line performance, the GT500 is the undisputed winner down the quarter mile. In road testing it gets much more interesting. Most reviews I’ve seen go to the Camaro, with the Challenger close behind. The Mustang tends to fare worst in “real world” driving. Ford went for 0-60 and lighter track weight while Chevy went for looks and road performance. Dodge focused on drivability too and appeals to the older crowd for it’s retro-inspired looks and more comfortable interior. It had to give up an extra 300-400 lbs. to do that, and a longer body being built on the LX platform (charger, 300, magnum).

I’m a fan of all 3. I bought the Challenger, but I don’t run around knocking the other two. The Camaro had visibility issues and an interior that didn’t do anything for me at that price point. I don’t like the cluster or the radio area, and they sacrificed visibility for looks on the rear quarter blind spots. The Mustang felt less substantial, and I’ve done Mustangs in the past. The newer engines don’t have a lot of mechanical tolerance built in, and I like to tinker around the edges of my engines. I’ve heard reports that bumping over +30 hp without forged internals can spin a bearing. Even if it’s higher than that, I don’t like how close they’re cutting it. It spells problems down the road.

Very glad to see all 3 Detroit brands competing in this segment again.
