2017 Ford Mustang vs 2017 Dodge Challenger in Garland, TX

2017 Ford Mustang vs 2017 Dodge Challenger in Garland, TX

2017 Ford Mustang Shelby® GT350R in Race Red

 

A lot of performance is in the feel of the drive, in the way the engine revs. We at Prestige Garland Ford have the same respect for topnotch athleticism as you do, and that’s why we’ve decided to put two excellent competitors in this segment to the test. The 2017 Ford Mustang is happy to go up against the 2017 Dodge Challenger and prove its gumption to the world! If you have any questions while looking over these two coupes, give us a call at 888-435-2503 to chat with a knowledgeable, personable member of our staff.

There’s a lot to be gleaned from the amount of power exuding from under the hood, and both of these coupes have a lot to offer. The standard engine on the Mustang is the 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6, and it produces a commanding 300 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. While the Challenger edges out the Mustang with its 305 horses, it falls short with its 268 lb.-ft. of torque on its standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine. As you move up to the next powerhouse options, the differences become even more abundantly clear. The Mustang offers a powerful 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 that pumps out 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. The Challenger’s comparable engine simply falls flat. Producing only 375 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque, you just won’t feel the same get-up-and-go with the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 equipped under the hood of the Challenger.

Taking it up even one more notch, you won’t see the same level of power. The Mustang generates a heart-pounding 526 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque when equipped with its 5.2-liter Ti-VCT V8. On the other side, the Challenger can’t match that since its 392 HEMI® V8 only provides you with 485 horsepower, though it does offer 475 lb.-ft. of torque, but it’s not quite enough to make up for the lack of horsepower.

Now that we’ve tackled the mechanics, let’s take a look at the view from inside the cabin of these two coupes. The Mustang comes well-equipped, its standard trim boasting automatic xenon headlights and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, neither of which the Challenger features. You’ll be maneuvering out of tight parking spaces with the utmost ease thanks to the standard rear view camera1 equipped in the Mustang, and you’ll appreciate the Sync® voice control system for more integration with your mobile phone – to get features like that, you’ll have to dish out more cash for a higher trim level on the Challenger! Not to mention that, if you like to hit the track, the Mustang boasts TrackAppsTM performance telemetry, so you can really keep an eye on your performance while whizzing around the track. To get the same tracking ability on the Challenger, you’ll need to equip a package.

We at Prestige Garland Ford know which performance coupe sounds more appealing to us, especially after compiling this comparison between the 2017 Ford Mustang vs 2017 Dodge Challenger in Garland, TX! We hope you’ll pay us a visit at 3601 S. Shiloh Road in Garland, TX, soon and take the Mustang for a spin.

My family and I never thought of looking out-of-state to purchase a vehicle, I found a new listing on cars.com and after inquiring about photos, Eric called me less than 5 minutes later and with an hour sent me detailed photos of the vehicle. This was Wednesday evening and our new truck was ours by the end of Thursday evening! Eric made the process so easy for us as well as the management staff of Randall Reed’s Prestige! Together they made a great team to support our needs and get us into our new vehicle without any run around! This was all done over the phone and email! The process felt unreal but we will definitely be back to purchase our next vehicle from Randall Reed’s Prestige! We love our new truck! Thank you!

OUTSTANDING!

Just purchased a new Raptor from these guys. The deal was seamless and easy. The manager Sean Osborne really worked to make my deal right. There wasn’t a ton of haggling. They just came in first and foremost with a great deal and worked to make the minor details fit my needs. My sales person was solid. Most impressive was the fact that they had a dedicated hand off person that walked me through the manual, truck, and set up all of the electronics before I left the dealership. This was the second vehicle that I had purchased this month and this didn’t happen at the other dealership I went through even though I purchased a luxury SUV.

Randall Reed's has earned my business!

I purchased my new Shelby from Prestige Ford because they had the BEST price and SERIOUSLY the Best customer service. When it was time for my 5000 mile service I was treated like a King! I met the Service Manager. I met the Ford Tech that was to perform the service. I was offered a loner truck for the time my car was in service. I received at least 4 text updates as to it's status. My car was washed and ready in a timely manor by serviced and inspected by True Professionals! I live in Arlington not even 5 miles from a big ford dealer. They could not even change my oil on an appointment made 5 days prior! Randall Reed's has earned my business!

The service was phenomenal when I came in on Thursday morning and Karina took care of me. She was attentive and the communication was extraordinary. This is our first Ford and the service prior to this with other service personnel has been atrocious and Karina was a breath of fresh air; you could tell she cares. Will ONLY work with her going forward

I wish I could give them 10 stars!!! Truly and honestly the best dealership and car buying experience we could have ever had. Everyone we spoke to was incredibly friendly, nice and knowledgeable. Our salesman Ian Wortham was truly the best we have ever worked with and will never go to another dealership again!!! He went above and beyond to find us what we wanted for the price we were looking for. Before we showed up he had vehicles pulled up for us with different options as well as what we were looking at price wise for those vehicles. He did all of that for us in less than an hour of us calling and arriving to meet with him! They have excellent communication skills, follow through with what they say and will do anything to make you comfortable and satisfied with your purchase. The finance and insurance department was great to work with and loved meeting and working with everyone there. Their employees truly act like they want to be there and enjoy working at their dealership. We will be recommending Prestige Ford to all of our friends and family and will never go to another dealership again! We can’t say thank you enough!!!

Great Staff!

The sales man, was very,very nice and educational. Explained everything about a ford fusion in complete detail, and I also test drove the car, nice smooth ride but, I didn't like the positioning of the seats they were very uncomfortable. Ive gotta be able sit comfortably on the car especially since I drive outta town a lot. I loved the car though.

Sales & service is exceptional! Thank you Prestige

Looked all over DFW for a F-150. Went to 10 different dealerships within the past 8 months, and this place was by far the best place to do business with. Xaiver (Salesman), Sean ( Sales Manager), and Luis (Finance) were all easy to negotiate with. They just wanted to make the best deal possible with you, to fit your budget. Real good people to work with. Recommending coming here for a vehicle.

I went up here to see what I could do to get a newer vehicle based on a trade in. It turned out that this company has very very very very good customer service and the sales reps. They are very informative, respectful , honest and to the point. Brandon and Greg along with the financial loan guy included. Made me feel like a two-year-old. By walking me though the process and assuring me the whole way that everything would work itself out. I was skeptical at first but by the end. I was a believer that this company and the way they it's set up with their salespeople. This has to be a good company. They made me feel like it's not all about the bottom dollar it was more about customer service. I thank them for that what a breath of fresh air. I will refer people and I will be back. What an eye opener, they care about getting you in a new car and care about you coming back thanks guys.

Highly recommend this dealership and the management team is amazing!

Experienced shopper. My original sales guy (no longer there) made this experience not the greatest but the sales manager and signing manager and everyone else I felt with made this experience a great one. Not only did they beat every other dealerships pricing but gave a good and fair trade, helped me get the options I wanted and went even further beyond after the sale to make me happy. They matched competitor pricing on some aftermarket work on my truck (lift and tires) and along the way made me feel like part of their family. Highly recommend this dealership and the management team is amazing! 1

I had a wonderful experience and Ian, my salesman, was refreshing to work with. He got me the vehicle I wanted and made me feel comfortable. No pressure or old school sales tactics with him. It was the best car buying experience I’ve had thus far. The gentleman in the financing department was pleasant to work with as well. He offered options and explained why they were offered and didn’t badger me! I will refer anyone looking for a new car to Ian’s at Prestige Ford, hands down.

David in the service department was AMAZING! He was very aware of our situation at all times and called me when there was an update on my car. Said it would be a week wait but they finished in 3 days! Even when I had a hard time at check-out, the customer service rep was very alert and made sure I had a great experience and followed up with me afterward. Their service department is fantastic and if you can, ask for David!
