The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Dodge Challenger delivers macho retro looks in anything from a relaxed boulevard cruiser to a dragstrip specialist to a monster horsepower muscle machine. The 2019 Ford Mustang finally gets it: Muscle-car power doesn’t have to come with muscle-car handling compromises.
