The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Dodge Challenger can be anything you want: a docile all-season touring car, just the thing for Friday night car shows, a track-tamer, or a drag strip champion. Athletic performance, decent fuel economy, and surprising technology make the 2018 Ford Mustang even better.
