The Dodge Challenger is one eye-catching car. It’s got that slick look, an engine that purrs like a tiger, and is a magnet for chicas and chicos alike. To make your Challenger stand out from the rest, there are few parts and accessories that can add a custom touch and extra spice to a Dodge Challenger. Ever hear of Mopar Custom Auto Parts? They’re an auto parts and accessories shop that makes some interesting parts pieces for the interior, engine and exterior of a Challenger.
Comparing vehicles made for a lot of passengers is never easy. Drivers want comfortable interiors, up-to-date technology, great fuel economy and safety, and why shouldn’t they? Those are the standards for vehicles today, and if one were to scrimp on either, well, it wouldn’t make the “Yes” pile when it comes to making a buying decision.

The Dodge Challenger has a significant history as an evolving muscle car.

There’s no hiding the fact that a Ford Mustang and a Dodge Charger are both American muscle cars, and they are both chosen for speed.

For this article however, we’re focusing on the most basic trim for each.
Both vehicles feature V6 engines, but they differ in engine sub-type. A 3.6L 24-valve VVT V6 engine is standard in the Dodge Charger; it’s an engine designed to open or close the valve earlier to improve performance and fuel economy. A 3.7L Ti-VCT engine, which is standard in the Ford Mustang is similar but it operates based on a twin-independent variable camshaft system, also to increase performance.
Coming in at 300 horsepower, the Ford Mustang is capable of generating about 8 more horsepower than the Dodge Charger’s 292 horsepower engine.
