The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
A comfortable touring coupe most of the time, the retro-themed 2012 Dodge Challenger can turn in blistering musclecar performance when it's got a HEMI. The 2012 Chevy Camaro isn't practical, but it's stunning to look at and offers scorching performance--even without the ZL1 package.
