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.

Quick Specs
6.3
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.
6.2
The 2019 BMW M4 is a scalpel among high-powered sports cars. It cuts cleanly through corners and lacerate new-car budgets.
6.0
The 2019 Ford Mustang finally gets it: Muscle-car power doesn’t have to come with muscle-car handling compromises.
