At a Glance: Mustang vs. Challenger
When it comes to picking out your next sports car to hug every curve around Dallas, Plano, or Richardson you’ll want one that not only fulfills your need for speed but also has the high-tech features you want inside the cabin.
Two of the most popular models, the 2022 Ford Mustang and the 2022 Dodge Challenger, likely sit high on your list of considerations. But how do you know which one has more of what you want every time you take the wheel? Our team at Five Star Ford Dallas is here to help you decide.
Keep Your Finger on the Pulse
The 2022 Ford Mustang comes standard with Track Apps® that enables you to view detailed performance metrics, such as an accelerometer with lateral and longitudinal g-forces, along with:
- Lap times
- Acceleration times
- Automatic countdown starts
Both sports cars offer multiple trims and powertrain options. However, how do they start? Let’s look at the standard engines offered on the base trims. The Dodge Challenger comes off strong with a 3.6L V6 engine that offers up to 303 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque.
If you want even more power with a base engine, though, you’ll want to go with the Ford Mustang, which comes with a standard 2.3L EcoBoost® GTDI I-4 engine. This engine generates up to 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.
Looking to keep an eye on your performance stats? How about turning up the music while you cruise along? Both the Mustang and the Challenger have a lot of high-tech features to enhance your drive, but only one comes out on top.
Keep an Eye on Your Performance
In terms of keeping your performance stats in view, the 2022 Dodge Challenger comes with a 7-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display, which will let you view your information easily.
Over in the 2022 Ford Mustang, though, you can once again take it up a few notches with the available 12-inch fully configurable LCD digital cluster. The bigger screen will make it easier than ever to pay attention to your stats.
Customize Your Driver Views
For a truly personalized experience in the Ford Mustang, you can choose from three different views, each with its own MyColor® that enhances the mood by altering the gauge hues. The optional LCD digital cluster views include:
The 2022 Dodge Challenger does not offer different views or a comparable feature to MyColor® as you’ll enjoy in the Ford Mustang.
Whether you’re heading to work or racing down the highway, you can feel confident knowing you have plenty of safety features watching your back. Getting from Point A to Point B will be a breeze. Take a look at some of the standard and available features in these two sports cars.
Embrace the Open Road With Confidence
When you’re driving around town, you’ll want an easy way to maneuver your vehicle. Both the 2022 Ford Mustang and the 2022 Dodge Challenger make it easy to maneuver backward, whether you’re at the racetrack or pulling out of your driveway.
That’s because they both come standard with a Rear View Camera, which will help you see what’s behind you when you shift into Reverse.
Safety & Driver Assistance
Along with that, the Ford Mustang comes standard with the following Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology features:
- BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
- Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
- Auto High-Beam Headlamps
- Lane-Keeping System
Not only do these features boost your senses through audible and visual alerts, but they also operate autonomously, so you can enjoy every ride to the fullest. Although the 2022 Dodge Challenger offers comparable features, you’ll need to upgrade to a higher trim level to enjoy them.
Final Call: Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger?
While the Dodge Challenger puts up a good fight, the Ford Mustang ultimately offers more standard features and has some features you won’t find in its competitor. The only thing left to do is experience the thrill of the open road for yourself.
