2020 Dodge Charger vs 2020 Ford Mustang

2020 Dodge Charger vs 2020 Ford Mustang

If you want to treat yourself to a car with some power behind it, you may find yourself exploring both the Dodge Charger and the Ford Mustang as options. Each one of them has a 2020 model year available, but these two cars do not feature the same kind of performance. The following comparison does not treat the Mustang Shelby® as the same model as the Mustang.

The Ford Mustang continues its own long legacy as a 2-door muscle car, while the Dodge Charger has changed to become a performance sedan after it was revived a few years ago. But the differences come from far more than just how many doors each one has. If you’re wondering which of these two vehicles is more powerful, consult the chart below. You may be surprised at how they compare.

Comparison Analysis

If looking at this comparison has you convinced these two vehicles are just not in the same league, that’s partially because the Dodge Charger treats its high-performance engine options as trim levels, whereas the most powerful Mustang cars only come with the Shelby® name attached as a separate model entirely.

Still, the comparison has value as it shows that the Dodge Charger is more new-comer friendly by using an automatic transmission. Drivers who select a Dodge Charger with power comparable to the Mustang stats listed above get easier access to rear seats, and interior space without dropping to common sedan levels of engine power.
