Dodge Muscle Vs. The Competition | Capital CJDR of Indian Trail

Have you ever wondered how Dodge’s famous muscle cars stand up to their competitors? There are many other muscle cars out there, so what makes Dodge seemingly in a class of its own? Here at Capital CJDR of Indian Trail in Indian Trail, NC, we stand behind our Dodge muscle cars as some of the most capable and exhilirating cars you’ll find - no exception. Don’t believe us? Let us take you through a quick tour of the Dodge muscle cars currently available and let the facts speak for themselves. Just one simple word of caution: Buckle up.

Dodge Muscle - Hellcat

Our first car - the Dodge Challenger SRT® Hellcat. This Hellcat definitely has the ability to conjure up some type of dark, mysterious force that no other car has been able to. Try this on for size - the Hellcat delivers an astounding 707 horsepowerwhile delivering a whopping 650 pound-feet of torque from its best-in-class V8 engine. There’s no doubting when Dodge dubs this beast with the moniker of “the most powerful sedan ever”. But let’s let the facts speak for themselves - How do these numbers compare with some of the most respected and well0-known muscle cars on the market? First, let’s consider the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350®. With 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, this is only a scratch on the surface compared to the Hellcat’s performance capabilities. Let’s take it up a notch with another very well-rounded muscle car, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. This hunk of muscle delivers 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. We’re getting close, but still have a bit to go. Now, what about some of the other horsepower-heavy vehicles? There are three that come close, but still can’t replicate Dodge’s mysterious power: the Cadillac CTS-V (640 HP), the Audi RS-7 (605 HP), and the BMW M6 (600 HP) There’s a reason they dubbed this the “Hellcat”.

Dodge Muscle - Demon

Speaking of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350® and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, let’s see how they fare against our next vehicle - the Dodge Challenger SRT® Demon. A close companion to the Hellcat, both of these cars share the same dark, mysterious force that lives underneath the hood. The Demon is making waves just as much as its sister car, boasting the world’s quickest quarter mile in a production car - ever - at 9.65 seconds! So, just how fast are the Mustang Shelby GT350® and the ZL1? The Shelby clocks in at 12.5 seconds, and the ZL1 just in front of it at 11.7 seconds. At 9.65 seconds, the Demon blows away the competition!

Dodge Muscle - Charger

Our next stop - the Dodge Charger SXT. This Dodge muscle is not only able to deliver the Dodge signature performance we all know and love, but also has fuel economy and efficiency down pat. Not only does this Charger hit the praised 30 MPG mark right on the head, it also has a best-in-class highway driving range of 555 miles! Some cars have performance, others have fuel efficiency, and others have astronomical range, but having all three truly unheard of. So, that begs the question once again: How does the competition compare? Let’s consider the Ford Taurus. This sedan clocks in at a respectable 27 MPG while offering a 513 driving range. Next, the Chevrolet Impala. This sedan features 28 MPG and a 518 driving range. Can any get close? Finally, the Nissan Maxima. This matches the Charger with its 30 MPG, but falls a meager 15 miles short of it with its 540 driving range. You see, Dodge knows muscle, and it is no wonder that their muscle cars are simply in a league of their own. There are many more stops we could take, but why don’t you let us show you? Stop by Capital CDJR of Indian Trail in Monroe, NC today and climb behind the wheel yourself! You deserve to feel the power these top performers can offer you.
