2020 Dodge Challenger vs 2020 Chevrolet Camaro

2020 Dodge Challenger vs 2020 Chevrolet Camaro

The Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro have an interesting history. Both were created in response to the rising interest in American muscle cars after the launch of the Ford Mustang. The Camaro and Challenger were originally released at about the same time, and both were discontinued briefly before being revived just before 2010. But what happens when you pit the two against each other in the new decade?

Between these two cars are some of the best innovations in automotive engineering, but in the 2020 model year, one rises as the clear winner in terms of power and speed. But is that all there is to it, or should automakers focus on more than just speed and acceleration in the information age? The table below takes four major highlights of the vehicles head-to-head against one another. Both comparisons include available features that can be found on the SRT® Hellcat Redeye Widebody version of the 2020 Dodge Challenger and the ZL1 version of the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro.

Comparison Analysis

Putting the two engines right next to each other wouldn’t reveal a whole lot visually. They are both the same size and number of cylinders, but the Dodge Challenger engine can produce more horsepower and torque than the Chevrolet Camaro. Not only that, but the Challenger gives drivers launch control standard so they can make the most of whatever engine is in their Challenger.

Combine the advantage of power with a sound system that uses twice as many speakers, and a subwoofer to deliver sound and a larger infotainment screen and it becomes clear how much more modern the Challenger is as well. Of course, this comparison does not consider a myriad of other options and features, but the power speaks for itself.
