2021 Dodge Challenger vs. Its Competition

2021 Dodge Challenger
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Camaro and Mustang have both been updated since the Challenger was new more than a decade ago.

Both Chevy and Ford have bona fide sports cars now, while the Challenger has stayed put on straight-line speed.

The Dodge Charger is mechanically related to the Challenger but offers better interior space and two more doors.

The 370Z is a relative dinosaur just like the Challenger; it’s not long for the world either.

The Jaguar F-Type was updated for 2021 and offers thrilling V-8 power, albeit at a higher price.

Quick Specs
The 2021 Dodge Challenger muscle coupe is more than a one-trick pony. It looks great while going fast, too.
Wrapped in a cool pony car body, the 2021 Chevy Camaro has sports car moves.
The 2021 Dodge Charger is a retro sedan with silly performance potential. Speed doesn’t go out of style.
The 2021 Jaguar F-Type coupe or convertible looks like nothing else on the road, if that helps justify the price.
The 2020 Ford Mustang has natural agility, but new choices bring performance to every price point.
The 2020 Nissan 370Z is an old-school sports car that handles and accelerates well but feels like the dated design that it is.
