2014 Dodge Challenger vs. 2014 Ford Mustang
The 2014 Dodge Challenger is a bold sports coupe with muscle car looks and three powerful performance options. The inside of the vehicle is quite spacious and equipped plentifully with features, making the Challenger both fun and practical for everyday driving. Of course, there are some other iconic muscle cars still on the market like the 2014 Ford Mustang. Does the modern Mustang deliver the same thrills as the Challenger? Let’s take a look.
Both coupes start with V6 engines delivering 305 hp. The Ford Mustang GT offers a bigger 5.0L V8 engine delivering a more impressive 420 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. That doesn’t stand up to the Challenger SRT8’s 6.4L V8, though, delivering a massive 470 hp and lb-ft of torque. In addition, Dodge offers a midrange 5.7L V8 with 376 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. The bottom line is Dodge has more maximum power and more performance options for drivers.
Passengers are going to be much more comfortable when riding inside a Dodge Challenger. The Challenger is taller, wider, and longer than the Ford Mustang. This translates to more front head, hip, and shoulder room and more rear head, hip, leg, and shoulder room. You’ll also get more cargo space when you choose the Dodge Challenger.
If you’ve got a fast car, you also want to make sure it’s going to be safe. The NHTSA awarded the Dodge Challenger an overall safety rating of five stars, including five stars for front and side protection. The Ford Mustang, on the other hand, received only four stars overall and four stars in the front and side crash tests.
