2016 Ford Mustang vs 2016 Dodge Charger
When you look back at the last 50 years of American popular culture, you’ll see the Ford Mustang more than any other vehicle in the country. The reason for that is because the Mustang is truly the most popular and iconic muscle car of all time, and its popularity shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Ford recently gave the Mustang a complete redesign for the 2015 model year, which was the 50th anniversary of the pony car. Therefore, most people assumed that the Mustang would simply be a carryover for the 2016 model year that was recently released. However, that was simply not the case. Ford implemented some all-new changes and updates to the 2016 Ford Mustang. They took an already great car and made it even better, and we couldn’t be any more excited about it.
As we stated earlier, the Mustang is the most popular muscle car in America. However, there are still plenty of worthy competitors that challenge the Mustang for market share every year. One of the most popular competitors to the Mustang is Dodge’s Charger model. The Dodge Charger has been around for about as long as the Mustang, and is very iconic in its own right. Therefore, we have decided to match up the new 2016 Ford Mustang vs 2016 Dodge Charger in order to find out which model is best in the new model year.
2016 Ford Mustang: Legendary Speed
Drivers who are into performance vehicles are concerned with one thing, speed. The new 2016 Ford Mustang has no shortage of horses, and boasts significantly more power than the 2016 Dodge Charger. The 2016 Ford Mustang comes standard with a 3.7-liter, six-cylinder powertrain that is able to pump out 300 horsepower with 280 pound-feet of torque. In comparison, the 2016 Dodge Charger is only able to make 292 horsepower with 260 pound-feet of torque. Therefore, the new 2016 Dodge Charger is very underpowered in comparison to the Mustang pony car. Also, even though the Mustang boasts better performance than the Charger, it still boasts a fuel economy that is on par with it, which is very impressive. The 2016 Ford Mustang is the perfect vehicle for anyone looking for the perfect combination of style performance and fuel efficiency.
