The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
Big and heavy, the 2016 Dodge Challenger offers touring comfort you won't find in the other muscle coupes. A variety of models lets owners choose a comfortable daily driver, a dragstrip menace, and everything in between. The Ford Mustang keeps its newfound finesse and pony-car attitude, blasting past its 50th year with a rorty new Shelby GT350 variant plus more ways to stand out from the crowd.
