Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Challenger than the Ford Mustang. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Challenger and the Ford Mustang in the front seats.

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

Cost
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). The Dodge Challenger is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Mustang. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Challenger is much higher than that for the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
The Dodge Challenger is about the same width as the Ford Mustang. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Challenger, which is slightly longer than the Ford Mustang.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Challenger transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Ford Mustang.

Handling
The Dodge Challenger has about the same turning radius as the Ford Mustang, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Challenger is somewhat more powerful than the Ford Mustang.

Utility
The Dodge Challenger offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Mustang, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Dodge Challenger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Mustang.
