Dodge Challenger vs Chevy Camaro



When muscle stands against brawn, there can only be one victor. How can one compare the prowess of the Chevrolet Camaro to the power of the Dodge Challenger? We’re not entirely sure, but we’re going to give it a shot.

Power & Performance

Both of these fast cars bring 4 engine options, but not without mechanical differences. Except for the Challenger’s SRT Hellcat Redeye, both models offer a choice between an automatic or manual transmission. See an honest comparison of performance specs below:

2019 Chevy Camaro

  • 2.0L Turbocharged Inline 4; 275 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.6L V6; 335 horsepower, 284 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.2L V8; 455 horsepower, 455 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.2L supercharged V8; 650 horsepower, 650 lb-ft of torque

2019 Dodge Challenger

  • 3.6L V6; 305 horsepower, 268 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.7L V8, 375 horsepower, 410 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.4L V8, 485 v, 475 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.2L supercharged V8; 717 horsepower, 656 lb-ft of torque (SRT Hellcat); 797 v, 707 lb-ft of torque (SRT Hellcat Redeye)


Part of the appeal when buying a muscular coupe is the looks you’ll get when you’re cruising around South Florida. Both of these models received a refresh for the 2019 model year. Chevrolet added a new face for the Camaro SS, which is a step away from its traditional design.

In contrast, the 2019 Challenger has only undergone some modest adjustments, such as a differing hood for the Hellcat.

2019 Chevy Camaro

  • Weight: 3,354 and 4,113 pounds
  • Coupe or convertible body

2019 Dodge Challenger

  • Weight: 3,894 to 4,448 pounds
  • Coupe body only

While the Challenger is around 10 inches longer than the Camaro, the Camaro is still lighter. This is a good thing because it means that the Camaro handles better on the highway. If you’re buying a muscular car for the experience, agility should be a priority.


Without a doubt, a new Camaro lease deal will offer better technology features than the Challenger.

The new Camaro offers the choice between a standard 7 inch and an available 8 inch touchscreen. The model also has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

In comparison, the Challenger only features Apple CarPlay and lacks a 4G LT Wi-Fi hotspot and Android Auto.
