It’s time to buy a new car and this time you want to pick out something pretty. No more mini-vans or hand-me-down vehicles, you need a car with some power under the hood. While a luxury car might be outside of your budget, there are plenty of modern muscle cars that are both affordable and will have you peeling out of your driveway with a grin on your face. The only real question is which one you should go with, so here are a few of the hottest muscle cars to help you decide.
Ford introduced their first model of the Mustang back in 1964, and since then there have been several different versions of the classic muscle car, including the Shelby Mustang, the Mustang Mach-E, and the Shelby GT500, as well as many, many more. The body design has gotten sleeker over the years, but the newest Mach-E version of the legendary car is its first-ever electric model, taking on a slightly bulkier build and is considered to be an SUV. This muscle car is one pony worth taking for a ride.
Chevy brought the first Camaro into the world in 1966, shortly after the first Mustang. The Camaro has undergone fairly extensive design changes in the decades since its initial release, originally taking on a bulky and cornered look, then adopting a rounded, slender body, only to return to its roots years later with a slightly sleeker look. Like the Mustang, the Camaro has had some popular variations for car enthusiasts to choose from, such as the SS Camaro, the Camaro ZL-1, and the Camaro Z28. You can’t go wrong with this brand of muscle car.
Releasing in late 1969 as a 1970 model, the Dodge Charger is yet another classic muscle car that has evolved over time. This lighter and suped-up version of the Dodge Charger is not to be trifled with. It hosts a mean body style of sharp edges and a blocky front end, often equipped with an iconic hood scoop. Some of the most popular models of the Challenger are the GT Spirit, the SRT Hellcat Redeye, and the SRT Demon.
These muscle cars are lean, mean, and full of horsepower. Some prefer the newest models that are sleek and innovative, while others enjoy the classic models which are nostalgic throwbacks, but they are all staples of American car production. You can be sure you’ll be turning heads and burning rubber when you leave the lot in one of these bad boys.
