2019 Dodge Challenger vs. Its Competition

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The 2019 Dodge Challenger is a jack of many trades but none of them are as sporty as the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, the car’s two closest rivals.

Both are lighter, smaller, and better when the road turns twisty.

Of the two, the Camaro is our choice for track-time thrills.

The aging Nissan 370Z still manages to be a performance deal, but its technology is falling behind.

The BMW M4 and Audi S5 compete in the luxury realm.

The Challenger can approach their prices and with far more power, though, again, without their sporty dynamics.
