For less than $30k, this is what you can get.
Say you're interested in buying the entry-level version of your favorite modern muscle car. That means you'll be getting a V6 with around 300 hp for under $30,000. There's also a turbo four available in the Camaro and Mustang, and though it wouldn't be our first choice, we tossed in that pricing too. The Challenger is simply too awesome for any engine smaller than a V6. Chevy and Ford have already released 2016 pricing for the Camaro and Mustang, respectively, but Dodge has yet to do so for the Challenger.
We highly doubt the latter will change much (if at all) for 2016, so we'll use current pricing for this brief comparison anyway. Which of these would you pick? 2016 Camaro 1LT V6: $27,195 (335 hp) 2016 Camaro 1LT 2.0-liter Turbo 4: $25,700 (275 hp) 2016 Ford Mustang V6: $23,800 (300 hp) 2016 Ford Mustang 2.3-liter Turbo 4: $25,300 (310 hp) 2015 Dodge Challenger 3.6-liter V6: $26,995 (305 hp)
