The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is going up against the 2016 Ford Mustang but which of the two is going to come out ahead?
We have heard a great deal of talk about the Lebanon Ford Mustang GT which is going to have a price of $40,000 and offer up 720 horse power. We have heard that this may well be able to kill off the Dodge Challenger Hellcat thanks to the lower price tag. Before reaching a decision though there are some things to bear in mind.
The 2016 Ford Mustang GT can be ordered from Lebanon Ford and it offers the 2 Roush supercharger which gives out 727 horsepower. We have no idea though as to whether it is going to be able to beat off the Dodge Challenger Hellcat.
It comes with the 5 litre V8 engine offering up 727 horsepower and 610 torque. The Ford Mustang comes with 6 speed manual gears along with the 3.21 rear gears. It has 18 aluminium wheels along with P235/50R183 season tires. On the back there is the 13 inch brakes and 14 inch on the front.
Inside the cabin of the Ford Mustang GT is cloth seats, manual climate control and 6 speaker sound system. But do you think that it has what it needs to beat the Dodge Charger Hellcat?
The price tag of the Dodge Charger Hellcat is $65,000 and the Ford Mustang GT is offered for $39, 995. The figures seem to suggest that the Hellcat does come ahead at least for the price.
The Dodge Challenger Hellcat comes with the V8 6.2 litre engine and this offers up 707 horse power along with 650 torque. In real life however this is more like 725 horses.
The Ford Mustang GT weighs in at 3, 704lbs, however with the supercharger another 200lbs is added on. The weight of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is 4, 439lbs, so the Mustang wins.
The Ford Mustang has 14 inch brakes on the front and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat has the 15.4 Brembo high performance brakes. For this the Challenger is the winner.
The Ford Mustang comes with the 6 speed manual gears and these were seen in the V8 5 litre. There is the 6 speed manual in the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, which was used in the Dodge Viper.
The Ford Mustang Lebanon GT may well be a great choice for those who want the power of 727 horses and it can hold its own against the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. This is mostly due to the fact that the $39, 995 price tag is great and this may sway you over the Ford Mustang.
