Ford Mustang vs Dodge Charger: Performance
Both the 2021 Ford Mustang and the 2021 Dodge Charger offer four unique drive modes that enable you to pick your preferred performance every time you take the wheel. Along with that, the Ford Mustang offers three power-assist settings that enable you to pick the type of steering control you want at a moment’s notice. You can switch among the following:
In the Dodge Charger, however, you won’t find a comparable feature to the three power-assist settings offered by the Ford Mustang.
Tune in on the Track
In addition to being able to tailor the performance of every ride, you want to stay tuned into your sports car from Point A to Point B, whether that be on the track or the open road. The 2021 Dodge Charger offers available Performance Pages that display performance indicators, including real-time information, through a 7-inch touchscreen.
Mix up the View
The 2021 Ford Mustang outshines its competitor in this area, though. When equipped with the available 12-inch full-color digital LCD cluster, you can even switch the gauge colors to match your mood with MyColor®, which features Normal, Sport, and Track views.
Explore More with Standard Track Apps®
Not only does it offer a more expansive display, but Track Apps® come standard on every Ford Mustang model. This too provides you with performance metrics, including an accelerometer with lateral and longitudinal g-forces, as well as:
- Acceleration times
- Lap times
- Automatic countdown starts
No matter which Ford Mustang model you choose, you’ll have full access to the stats you care about from the driver’s seat.
Ford Mustang vs Dodge Charger: Technology
When it comes to entertainment and connectivity, you will find similar systems in both sports cars. The Dodge Charger offers an available Uconnect® 4C NAV system, while the Ford Mustang offers an available SYNC® 3 Voice-Activated Touchscreen Navigation System.
Drivers may find the intuitive interface and user-friendly pinch-to-zoom capability in the 2021 Ford Mustang easier to use than the system in the 2021 Dodge Charger.
Bring Backup with You
To help you and your passengers enjoy a thrilling yet safe ride, both models offer a variety of driver-assistive features that boost your senses and provide extra backup. In the Ford Mustang, you will find standard Ford Co-Pilot360™, which features driver-assistive technologies, like Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and the Lane-Keeping System.
However, to get similar features to these in the Dodge Charger, you’ll need to upgrade to a higher trim level.
