The 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 taps into a total of 760 horsepower from a 5.2-liter engine, which implements a supercharger. Powered by premium fuel, the V-8 powerplant takes full advantage of the Cross Plane Crank configuration. The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat extracts up to 717 net hp from a supercharged V-8 engine that displaces 6.2 liters during combustion. Standard on the Scat Pack edition, the 392 HEMI V-8 engine kicks out 485 hp. Standard on the Mustang MACH-1 trims, the 5.0-L Ti-VCT powertrain almost matches the capabilities of the 392 HEMI unit. You can also buy the Ford muscle car with a turbocharged I-4 engine that generates 310 hp. Running on the EcoBoost design, the 2.3-L propulsion system creates a 9.5:1 compression ratio. Standard on low-level Charger models, the Pentastar V-6 engine is less powerful than the EcoBoost powerplant.
Assembled by the TREMEC company, a dual-clutch transmission propels the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. This exclusive DCT system offers seven fixed gear combinations for sporty driving. All other trims run on a manual transmission system that creates six different gear ratios. The Rev Match technology is integrated into models that wear the GT and MACH-1 badges. This Ford muscle car is also available with an automatic gearbox that has ten preset shifting options. Paddle shifters on the steering wheel provide direct access to the SelectShift function. You won’t get as many gear sequences from the 2021 Dodge Charger’s automatic transmission, which has the TorqueFlite design. Rolling on a rear-wheel-drive with the TORSEN-type limited-slip axle, the Mustang gets good traction on the road and track. Bumps and other obstacles on pavement won’t stop this iconic sports car that sits on the MagneRide Damping Suspension System, which makes up to 1,000 readings of the road per second. Conveniently located in the center stack, metallic switches control up to five different driving modes, including the Drag Strip, Track, and Sport. Speaking of drag racing, this powerful Ford model offers the Launch Control. Such a competition-tuned feature is also available for the 2021 Dodge Charger. Additionally, both vehicles can perform tire burnouts and generate aggressive rumbles from the exhaust tips.
The 2021 Ford Mustang offers up to 18 wheel options with eye-catching designs. For example, the Black Accent Package includes 19-inch aluminum wheels with Black Ebony paint. Having a machined finish with black pockets, 19-inch wheels from the California Special bundle are standard on the GT trims. This legendary muscle car comes in stunning exterior colors, including Fighter Jet Gray, Grabber Yellow, and Antimatter Blue. Vinyl side stripes and over-the-top stripes are available for this Ford sports car. Similarly, the 2021 Dodge Charger is available with cool striping and other custom decals.
