2014 Dodge Challenger vs. Its Competition

Over the past few years, there's been a new series of muscle car battles, as Ford and Chevy duke it out to give their retro-looking pony cars modern muscle performance.

The Chevrolet Camaro drives surprisingly well, though it's a tight fit inside and headroom is limited; there's a 580-hp ZL1 model that's a legitimate thriller behind the wheel.

The Mustang is another one that's shockingly quick in its Shelby and Boss 302 models, all while offering an ergonomically-designed interior and nearly as much technology as the Challenger.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe isn't necessarily a pony car, but with rear-wheel drive and an affordable price, it fits as competition against the Challenger V-6.

If you're looking for better handling and sharper driving dynamics, perhaps consider the relatively light, far more raw Nissan 370Z.

Quick Specs
The 2014 Dodge Challenger feels like a retro-themed touring car in V-6 guise, but choose one of its HEMI-powered models and you have a tire-scorching muscle car on your hands.
The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro may have a somewhat gimmicky wrapper, but in its ZL1 and Z/28 guises especially this muscle machine turns into a serious performance car with truly entertaining handling.
The 2014 Ford Mustang delivers some of the best performance-car bang for the buck, all with a level of sophistication that's surprising given the brash sound and classic looks.
The 2014 Nissan 370Z continues to deliver good value and big sports car grins.
