Built with power, torque, and speed, the 2019 Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro are known for their muscle-bound performance on the road. As American coupe icons, these vehicles have stood the test of time. Both the Challenger and the Camaro have been around since the late 60s, and while these 45+ years have seen redesigns and technological advancements, there's one thing they still rival in: power. 
To see which one really stands out, let's compare these two vehicles and name our winner.

Exterior Styling & Performance

Both models received a pretty heavy refresh for the 2019 year. The Challenger shows up slightly larger than the Camaro at about 10 inches longer and 5 inches taller, giving it a more muscular look than the Camaro. It's styled to resemble the retro muscle cars Americans have grown to know and love, so while it's a modern representation, it still feels like it's ready for the racetrack. 
The Camaro, while revamped this year, wasn't quite as well received for its new changes as it seems to confuse car enthusiasts with its unique silhouette. Some car shoppers prefer its smaller, lighter, and more modern appearance. In terms of performance, the Challenger and Camaro offer four engine options.

The Camaro's engine offerings include: 
  • 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder with 275 hp, 295 lb.-ft. of torque and 31 mpg/hwy  
  • 3.6L V6 with 335 hp, 284 lb.-ft. of torque, and 29 mpg/hwy 
  • 6.2L V8 with 455 hp, 455 lb.-ft. of torque, and 27 mpg/hwy
