Compare The 2017 Dodge Charger Vs. 2017 Ford Mustang Near Athens, TX

When you’re shopping for a high performance car it makes sense to compare the 2017 Dodger Charger vs. 2017 Ford Mustang. Both are sleek, stylish, and fun-to-drive high performance vehicles and share heritage as iconic American muscle cars. For this review we’ll pit the 2017 Dodger Charger R/T Scat Pack in Athens, TX, against the 2017 Mustang GT Premium Fastback. 20-inch wheels, LED fog lamps and signature LED tail lamps are standard on both models but the Mustang features HID headlamps where the Charger incorporates bi-functional halogen projector headlamps. And where the Charger R/T Scat Pack offers optional Alcantara® Suede/Nappa Leather performance seats, the Mustang GT Premium comes stock with leather-trimmed bucket seats. But where the Dodge has it over the Ford is the roominess of a 4-door sedan versus the confinement of a coupe and as we’ll discover, far superior under-the-hood performance. Stop by Elder Cedar Creek and test drive the 2017 Dodger Charger in Athens, TX, and put the pedal to the metal!
