2016 Chevrolet Camaro vs. 2016 Dodge Challenger
Old School Power: The 2016 Chevy Camaro vs. 2016 Dodge Challenger
If the roar of a pure muscle car engine is what you’re after, then there are plenty of options out there. It’s easy to find modern muscle cars, but making a solid decision on which is best for your wants and needs is less clear. To make the process easier and less stressful, we’ve taken two of the most iconic muscle car options and stacked them up detail by detail. Take a look at our analysis results on the 2016 Chevy Camaro and 2016 Dodge Challenger in terms of safety, power, and overall design.
Safety and Warranty
When you’re pushing your performance vehicle to the limit, safety is of utmost importance. The Challenger and the Camaro both offer a full range of modern safety equipment, like front, side, knee, and side-impact airbags, front seatbelts with pretensioners, traction and electronic stability control, daytime running lights, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, optional blind spot and rear cross-path warning systems, and available rear parking sensors. The Camaro offers height-adjustable rear seatbelts—a feature that the Challenger doesn’t include.
In terms of solid warranty, the Camaro again has the edge over the Challenger. The Camaro’s corrosion coverage exceeds the Challenger’s by one year. Chevy also completely covers scheduled maintenance for 2 years or 24,000 miles—coverage not offered for the Challenger.
When it comes to powerful speed, you’ll get a healthy dose with the Camaro. The Camaro SS 6.2L V8 engine is significantly faster than the comparable Challenger V6. The Camaro can reach 60 MPH from zero 2.3 seconds faster and go from zero to 100 MPH 6.6 seconds faster. No matter how you look at it, the Camaro is faster, both out of the gate and at a stretch. Even with the increased performance, the Camaro stays practical and efficient and cost-effective with regular gasoline and a cap-less fueling system.
Thoughtful and detailed ergonomic design will ensure that you love your car long after you purchase it. The Camaro offers fun, exciting details that aren’t offered on the Challenger that might really make a huge difference in day-to-day functionality for you and all of your passengers. The Camaro includes optional memory seats and an optional heads-up display, both of which are not offered on any new Challenger models. The Camaro also offers one-touch automatic windows, which are not offered to Challenger buyers. Finally, the Camaro has optional automatic dimming rear and side view mirrors, which are especially useful for driving in tough conditions at night—a feature not offered on the Challenger.
