2016 Ford Mustang Takes On Dodge Challenger Hellcat

By  | 

The 2016 Ford Mustang is taking on the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and both are superb vehicles in their own right, but which comes out on top?

The Ford Mustang GT from Lebanon Ford has a price tag of $40,000 and it offers 727 horses. The price tag is a lot lower than that of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, which could push you towards the Mustang. However when you are making a comparison between the two you do have to take certain factors into account.

The 2016 Ford Mustang GT comes with the 2 Roush supercharger and this means you get 727 horses. But whether the vehicle is going to have what is needed to take over from the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is something that remains to be seen.

The Ford Mustang GT has the V8 5 litre engine with 610 torque, the 6 speed manual gears and 3:31 rear gearing. It is offered with the 18 inch wheels in aluminium and P235/50R183 tires. At the back there is the 13 inch brakes and 14 inches on the front.

The cabin is packed with features such as manual climate control, 6 speaker sound system and cloth seats. But how do you think it matches up to the Dodge Challenger Hellcat?

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is offered with a price tag in the region of $65,000 and you can pick up the Ford Mustang GT for around $39, 995.

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat has the V8 6.2 litre engine which offers up 707 horses but in reality it should give you around 725 horses.

The Ford Mustang GT comes with the 14 inch brakes, while the Dodge Challenger Hellcat offers the 15.4 inch brakes and these are high performance. This means that here the Challenger has the advantage.

The Ford Mustang GT offers 6 speed manual gears and these were in the 5 litre V8 engine. The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is offered with the 6 speed manual gearing that was used on the Dodge Viper.

So does the price tag of the Ford Mustang GT and its 727 horses sway you away from the Dodge Challenger Hellcat?
