2021 Ford Mustang vs. 2021 Dodge Challenger - Which is the Best Sports Car in Vancouver?

Young or old, most drivers want nothing more than to get behind the wheel of a car and drive as their lives depend on it. The power, performance, and history behind both the 2021 Ford Mustang and 2021 Dodge Challenger make them both excellent choices for both veteran track drivers and young whippersnappers in Vancouver.



2021 Ford Mustang


With an incredible reputation and over 55 years of production, the Ford Mustang is synonymous with performance. Featuring eye-catching style that has adapted over time, it is still easy to pick a Mustang out of the crowd.


The 2021 Ford Mustang is no different, full of zip under the hood and pizzazz on the exterior to catch the eyes of all it passes by. The Mustang comes in 11 different models, including EcoBoost, GT, BULLITT, and Shelby configurations. Starting at $28,080, even the standard engine option--a turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder boasting 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque--has enough power to embarrass most other cars on the road today. While the standout is the Shelby GT500, with a supercharged 5.2-litre SuperCharged Cross Plane Crank V8 production engine (760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque), the best all-around Mustang is probably the BULLITT model in terms of value and performance.


For technology, the 2021 features an 8-inch touchscreen, Ford Sync interface, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and a number of driver-assist features.



2021 Dodge Challenger




Starting at $29,395, the 2021 Dodge Challenger is offered in nine model varieties with different powertrain options. The standard is a 3.6-litre Pentastar VVT V6 8-speed automatic that delivers 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. The most powerful option is a high-output 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI SRT Hellcat Redeye V8 with 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque.


The 2021 Dodge Challenger offers something that the Mustang, and other class rivals, do not--available all-wheel drive (AWD) on its V6 models. Not only is the Challenger a sportscar; it's a sports car that can drive in all weather conditions.


The Challenger features a ParkView rear back-up camera, Uconnect 4 multimedia centre with a 7-inch touchscreen, 7-inch full-colour customisable in-cluster display, Bluetooth, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. The Challenger offers comfortable seats and more passenger space than the Mustang, but the additional space comes at a price. The expanded dimensions make it harder for drivers to see out of, providing a limited view of what is going on around the vehicle.



2021 Ford Mustang vs 2021 Dodge Challenger - the Clear Winner


The 2021 Dodge Challenger, while offering more room and optional AWD, just does not hold up to the Ford Mustang in performance. It is not as athletic on the street, its manual shifter is imprecise, and the interior features inferior materials. It is a lazy sportscar, and drivers would be settling if they were to choose it over the 2021 Ford Mustang. The 2021 Ford Mustang continues to reign as the American-made sportscar to beat, and it offers powerful performance in Vancouver and across Canada.
