Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Challenger than the Chevrolet Camaro, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Challenger, the Chevrolet Camaro may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Camaro as you will with the Dodge Challenger, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Camaro will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Challenger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Camaro carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Challenger.

The Chevrolet Camaro is a little narrower than the Dodge Challenger, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Chevrolet Camaro, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Challenger.

The Chevrolet Camaro has less horsepower than the Dodge Challenger, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

With its lower torque, the Chevrolet Camaro doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Dodge Challenger.

The Chevrolet Camaro has less seating than the Dodge Challenger, making the Dodge Challenger the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

The Chevrolet Camaro comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Challenger.
