The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Dodge Challenger has retro style and blistering muscle-car performance in spades, but it's a surprisingly well-equipped, comfortable touring coupe to boot. The 2011 Ford Mustang lives up to all those juvenile, tire-smoking pony-car expectations; at the same time, it’s an unexpectedly capable, sophisticated coupe.
