Dodge Muscle Vs. The Competition: How Do They Fare? | Friendship CJDR Forest City

Have you ever wondered how Dodge’s infamous muscle cars stack up to the competition? There are many other muscle cars on the market, so what makes Dodge so special? Here at Friendship CJDR in Forest City, we stand behind our Dodge muscle cars as some of the most powerful and exciting cars you’ll find - not to mention, they blow away the competition in the process. Don’t believe us? Let us take you through a tour of the Dodge muscle cars and let the facts speak for themselves. Just one simple word of warning: Buckle up.

Dodge Muscle - Hellcat

Our first stop - the Dodge Challenger SRT® Hellcat. This Hellcat sure has the ability to conjure up some type of dark, mysterious power that no other car has seen. Try this on for size - the Hellcat delivers a mind-boggling 707 horsepower while containing a whopping 650 pound-feet of torque from its best-in-class V8 engine. There’s no questioning when Dodge knights this otherworldly beast with the moniker of “the most powerful sedan ever”. But let’s let the facts speak for themselves. How do these numbers fare with some of the most respected and suitable muscle cars on the market? First, let’s consider the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350®. With 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, this is only a scratch on the surface of the Hellcat’s performance capabilities. Let’s ramp it up a notch with another very well respected muscle car, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. This slab of muscle delivers and even 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. We’re getting close, but no cigar. Now, what about some of the other horsepower heavy vehicles? There are three that come close, but still can’t replicate Dodge’s mysterious power: the Cadillac CTS-V (640 HP), the Audi RS-7 (605 HP), and the BMW M6 (600 HP) There’s a reason they dubbed this the “Hellcat”.

Dodge Muscle - Demon

Speaking of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350® and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, let’s see how they fare against our next stop - the Dodge Challenger SRT® Demon. A sister car to the Hellcat, both of these cars share the same dark, mysterious power that lies underneath the hood. The Demon is making waves just as much as its kin, boasting the world’s fastest quarter mile in a production car - ever - at 9.65 seconds! So, just how fast are the Mustang Shelby GT350® and the ZL1? The Shelby clocks in at 12.5 seconds, and the ZL1 just in front of it at 11.7 seconds. At 9.65 seconds, the Demon smokes the competition and leaves them in the dust. Many have contested the Hellcat and the Demon, but none have been able to conquer.

Dodge Muscle - Charger

Our next stop - the Dodge Charger SXT. This Dodge muscle is not only capable of delivering that Dodge signature performance, but also has fuel economy and efficiency in the bag. Not only does this Charger hit the coveted 30 MPG mark right on the nose, it also boasts a best-in-class highway driving range of 555 miles! Some cars have performance, some have fuel efficiency, and others have astronomical range, but having all three truly is a feat to beat. So, that begs the question once again: How does the competition fare? Let’s consider the Ford Taurus. This sedan clocks in at a respectable 27 MPG while offering a 513 driving range. Next, the Chevrolet Impala. This sedan features 28 MPG and a 518 driving range. Can any get close? Finally, the Nissan Maxima. This matches the Charger with its 30 MPG, but falls a meager 15 miles short of it with its 540 driving range. You see, Dodge knows muscle, and it is no wonder that their muscle cars are simply in a league of their own. There are many more stops we could take, but why don’t you let us show you? Stop by Friendship of Forest City in Forest City, NC today and climb behind the wheel yourself! You deserve to feel the power these top performers can offer you.
