The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Ford Mustang delivers some of the best performance-car bang for the buck, all with a level of sophistication that's surprising given the brash sound and classic looks. The 2014 Dodge Challenger feels like a retro-themed touring car in V-6 guise, but choose one of its HEMI-powered models and you have a tire-scorching muscle car on your hands.
