Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Challenger than the Ford Shelby GT350, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Shelby GT350 and the Dodge Challenger in the front seats.
