Ford Mustang GT vs Dodge Challenger R/T | Which Has the Most Muscle?

Two modern American muscle cars and two Edmunds.com editors Face Off: the 2015 Ford Mustang GT vs the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T. Editors James Riswick and Mike Monticello debate the merits of each car, including their performance, comfort, interior, value and how much (or little) they’re fun to drive. Which car would you buy: the Mustang or Challenger?

  1. I’d take the challenger. Mustangs good looking. Got a 90 g. T. Conv. 5. Spd. Like it. But mopar. Yea.

  2. It’s not really much of a comparison, because they’re apples and oranges.

    The Mustang is lighter, smaller and more of a sports car. The Challenger is a plus-sized beast with HUGE power, room for 5 and a ginormous trunk.

    I’m on my 3rd Challenger (this time a Scat Pack with 485 HP (insert Tim Allen grunt here)) and it’s PERFECT for a guy who likes to go fast and has a family. I would love to own a Mustang, too, but it’s really not much more than a 2-seater.

    1. I’ve had three Challengers, and have never experienced any problems. Everything works. The cars are solid with no squeaks. Engine? Perfect. Transmission? Perfect. Breaks and suspension? Perfect. Fit and finish, excellent. What exactly is junky about these cars?

      I understand the reputation of US cars for decades was garbage, but these modern US cars are well-made and reliable. I have fewer problems with my Challenger than I do with my BMWs, and those cars are practically bullet-proof.

  3. My choice is the Challenger! Mopar or no Car !! Ford fix or repair daily plus how many recalls !!! The king of recalls !!!

  4. Those of you that vote for mustang or Camaro. Don’t have lot more to study up on old school Muscle car’s and who is taking the lead on there competition. 69 Road Runner came out head of them all.

  5. Mustangs are called “Pony Cars” for a reason compared to the Challenger being called a “MUSCLE CAR”

  6. I tried both and ended up with a Mustang GT. They were both nice. The Stang was more nimble and had better throttle response. The MOPAR was like waking a sleeping giant. Sitting inside the cabin was like sitting in my 72 Torino,with the same elbow room and sight lines.

    I will say that the Mustang interior is tighter and the back seat is almost useless. Just the thing to discourage back seat passengers! That said, we went on an 1800 trip last summer and felt no fatigue at all. The trunk is big enough and the car knocked down over 28 mpg!

  7. Comparing a pony car to the Challenger and then giving points to the Challenger for having more room for passengers? Well then…duh!
