The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Dodge Charger hits all the right blue-collar chords, yet its interior may impress the upper crust. Don't let the brash sound and classic looks fool you; the Ford Mustang offers some of the best performance-car bang for the buck--delivered with surprising sophistication.
