The 2021 Ford Mustang is faster and more powerful than in previous generations. Similarly, the 2021 Dodge Challenger achieves new heights in performance. Rolling on a rear-wheel drive and having plenty of high-performance hardware, both American sports cars are ready for drag racing.


Engineered to deliver 310 horsepower, a 2.3 L engine block propels the 2021 Ford Mustang base trim and other entry-level models. Operating on Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection, the I-4 power plant spits out 350 pound-feet of torque. Carrying the EcoBoost nameplate, this turbo powertrain is paired with a dual-exhaust system that has rolled tips. Standard on the 2021 Challenger, the Pentastar V6 engine can't produce more than 300 net hp. Using normal aspiration instead of forced induction, this 3.6 L propulsion system has a torque limit of approximately 270 lb-ft. The 2021 Ford Mustang at Ford Crestview also offers a 5.0 L V8 engine that pumps out 460 hp. Integrating the Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing design, this eight-cylinder powerplant is paired with a dual-exhaust system that has quad tips. The patented Ti-VCT engine has a peak torque output of 420 lb-ft. Also operating on natural aspiration, the 2021 Challenger's 5.7 L HEMI engine has a 375-hp limit. You won't extract more than 410 lb-ft from this V8 engine that includes the Multi-Displacement System. You could experience the 2021 Ford Mustang online test drive in the Mach 1 edition. Making its grand debut, this sporty model taps into 480 hp from the Ti-VCT engine. This all-new trim produces awesome acoustics from its 4-inch dual exhaust tips.


The 2021 Ford Mustang at Ford Crestview offers class-style handling through a manual transmission. Using the clutch pedal and round shifting knob, you can cycle through six speeds from the gearbox, which is available with the Rev Matching function. An automatic transmission with 10 shifting points is optional for this iconic sports car. When enjoying the 2021 Ford Mustang online test drive with the automatic gearbox, you can try the SelectShift technology for smoother handling. Displaying the TorqueFlite badge, the 2021 Challenger's automatic gearbox is limited to only eight speeds. However, this Dodge muscle car offers a six-speed manual transmission that's manufactured by TREMEC. In fact, Ford Crestview wants you to take the online test drive with the seven-speed TREMEC transmission in the Shelby GT500 edition. Standing at the top of the 2021 Mustang lineup, this model runs on up to seven different gear sequences that are managed by the dual-clutch gearbox. Thanks to the Electronic Line-Lock, the Ford model can impress spectators at the drag track. Holding the front wheels stationary, this mechanical hardware creates dramatic burnouts of the rear tires. Equipped with the Line Lock, the 2021 Challenger can also burn some rubber on the track. Fitted with 15.5-inch front brake rotors and six-piston calipers from Brembo, the Mustang comes to a smooth stop after crossing the finish line. High-performance brakes by Brembo are also available on the Dodge muscle car.


The 2021 Ford Mustang at Ford Crestview comes standard with the Track Apps. This exclusive technology is integrated into the Digital Instrument Cluster.
