  • Dodge Challenger Performance: The Challenger gets 3.6L V6 that makes 305 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque. It will go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds. There are three different V8 models available: a 375 hp 5.7L V8, a 6.4L 485 hp V8, and a 707 hp 6.2L V8. The quickest model—the 5.7L V8—will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, while the 6.2L V8 will do it in 4.1 seconds.
  • Chevy Camaro Performance: The Camaro can be had with a brand new 2.0L four-cylinder this year for superior fuel economy and 275 hp and 296 lb-ft of torque.

Safety and Security

There are some differences when it comes to safety and security. While both of these vehicles come standard with antilock brakes, traction and stability control, and a number of airbags, the Camaro also gets a standard rearview camera—a feature that’s missing on the base Challenger. Both can be had with rear cross traffic alert, frontal collision warning, and blind spot monitoring. Only the Camaro gets automatic collision notification and stolen vehicle assistance via the OnStar telematics system.
