Today, this has changed and we have entered a new era of American Muscle cars, with auto technology that gives these cars unbelievable power, but who truly makes the grade? Dodge has the Challenger Hellcat, Chevrolet has the Camaro ZL1 and Ford has the Mustang Shelby GT500, but there are others. Here is the best of modern American Muscle cars that you can get at your dealership today:
1. Muscle in Four-Doors with the Dodge SRT Hellcat
The SRT Hellcat Charger from Dodge is one of the most powerful cars with a family sedan appearance. The 6.2-liter V8 engine is super-charged and gives this grocery-getter an astounding 702hp. There are other added perks with the SRT package, such as all-wheel disk brakes, sporty body package with hood scoop and 20-inch alloy rims.
2. Chevrolet's Answer to American Muscle with the Camaro ZL1
Chevrolet was not going to be outdone by other American automakers and released the Camaro ZL1 package to compete with Ford and Mopar for the modern muscle car fame. The ZL1 package has the same 6.2-liter V8 that was installed in the Corvette Z06. The car has perks like a 10-speed automatic transmission, 11-inch wheels and body upgrades. The large V8 engine give the Camaro ZL1 and astounding 605hp.
3. The Grand National with A Modern 3.6 Turbo-Charged V6 Engine
Buick has also come back to the stage with the return of the Grand National and GNX. These cars are not the muscle of some of the other cars, but they are fast, high-performance cars that can keep up with the pack. The Grand National features a turbo-charged 4-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6. The V6 package gives this car nearly 400hp.
4. Ford's Appearance with The Powerful Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R
For over 6 decades, Ford has been manufacturing the Mustang, which is the original pony-car. Today, there are performance packages like the Mustang GT that give these cars the American muscle they need to stay ahead of the pack. The Mustang Shelby GT350R is the high-performance muscle car package. The Shelby GT350R has the 5.2-liter V8 engine that gives the pony an astounding 526hp right off the factory floor. With a few upgrades and improvements you can make substantial improvements to the horsepower output of these cars.
Some of the tales of horse power of these cars are truly in the imagination of the owners, but what is true is that the new generation of American muscle is extremely powerful. If you are ready for one of these cars, contact an auto dealership to take a test drive and feel what all the hype is about yourself.Share
