If you are a muscle car enthusiast but also looking for a more practical car, the Dodge Charger 2021 and the Ford Mustang 2021 are two cars worth considering. They are both priced at $27,000 MSRP, so let’s see how they perform.
When talking powertrains, both have plenty of options. The Dodge Charger 2021 has four engines: The 3.6L Pentastar V6 with 292/300 hp and 260/264 lb*ft of torque (depending on trim); the 5.7L HEMI V8 with 370 hp and 395 lb*ft of torque; the 6.4L HEMI V8 with 470/485 hp and 470/475 lb*ft of torque (depends on trim); and last but not least the supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 with 707/797 hp and 650/707 lb*ft of torque (depends on trim). Linked by an 8-speed automatic in either rear-wheel drive format (as a base) or all-wheel drive on the early trims. The Ford Mustang 2021 comes with three engines, one of which is modified twice. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.3L I4, followed by a 5.0L V8 with 460 hp and 420 lb*ft of torque, followed by a 5.2L V8 with 526 hp and 429 lb*ft of torque while being naturally aspirated or 760 hp and 625 lb*ft of torque when supercharged. It comes in rear-wheel-drive only and has either a 6-speed manual or a ten-speed automatic.
The interior is spacious, the Dodge Charger 2021 is roomy, seeing how it has four doors in comparison to the Ford Mustang’s two doors. The boot is also more significant, with 16.5 cubic feet, which can be enlarged to 18 cubic feet when the seats are folded down, compared to the Mustang’s 13.5 cubic feet. As far as features go, the Dodge Charger has plenty: the expected infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, every safety feature at your disposal (sensors, cameras, assists), comfort picks such as an improved sound system, and many more on higher trims.
Owners like them quite a lot, due to space, practicality and overall comfort, and how much power and speed they have available. Overall you get a practical sedan with the guts of a muscle car.
As such, the Dodge Charger 2021 tramps the Ford Mustang 2021 in its category due to the practicality it provides. From cargo space, the ability to move a small family around, all while giving you all-wheel drive if you live or plan on visiting a region with loads of snow. Whether you are in Plainfield, Indianapolis, Avon, or surrounding areas, drive on into York CDJR of Brazil to test Drive the all-new 2021 Dodge Charger where “We’re not #1, you are!”

Government 5-Star Safety Ratings are part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s New Car Assessment Program (www.safercar.gov). Model tested with standard side airbags (SAB). Starting with 2011 models, NHTSA has introduced tougher tests and rigorous new 5-Star Safety Ratings that provide more information about vehicle safety and crash avoidance technologies. Because of the more stringent tests, ratings for 2011 and newer vehicles should not be compared to ratings for 1990-2010 models. Overall vehicle score and frontal crash ratings should ONLY be compared to other vehicles of similar size and weight. For more information go to www.safercar.gov
