The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Ford Mustang finally makes the rear-end switch—and the SVO's back, at least in spirit. 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.
