Top 3 Muscle Cars for 2021
Despite muscle cars beingheyday long behind us, we’ve been witness to a rapid rebirth of once mighty segment in the recent couple of decades. What’s more, the last few years have brought us some of the most dynamic muscle cars produced in history and that trend is still on. In that regard, the 2021 muscle cars,all of which are among the most expensive cars to insure in the U.S, will have plenty to offer. Without further ado, let’s shed light on the upcoming top 3 muscle cars of 2021.
- 2021 Dodge Charger
Although running on foundation practically unchanged since 2011, the 4-door muscle sedan is still selling extremely well in the automobile market. That’s one of the reasons for the FCA to not replace it yet.
The other one being their overall take on the matter since Charger is remote from being their only expediously aging car without any successor in sight.
The way things look at the moment, the 2021 Dodge Charger might carry over unaltered for one last time.
If that be the case, don’t expect any hefty changes apart from maybe, a special edition model.
The latest addition is the Widebody kit which adorns the most potent R/T Scat Pack and Hellcat models, andshelters 11-inch wide tires while adding 3.3 inches of overall width.
The entry-level Dodge Chargers employs the proven 3.6L Pentastar V6 mill with either 292 hp or 300 hp with optional performance package.
The next step on this ladder is a strapping 5.7L HEMI V8 which cranks up 370 ponies, while a vigorous 6.4L HEMI V8 shoots up to 485 horsepower.
Finally, the fabulous Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat models yield 707 ponies, courtesy a 6.2L supercharged HEMI V8. All models are standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission and most of them are available in rear-wheel drive configuration.
The Dodge Charger is priced from just under $30,000 in the SXT trim, while the ultimate Hellcat models cost at least $71,000.
- 2021 Chevrolet Camaro
The iconic Chevrolet Camarois at present in its sixth generation of ponies overall and second generation post-2010 resurrection.
Ever since it has switched to the Alpha platform, the sales of this paradigmatic muscle car have started plummeting.
With no such plans to redesign the muscle car in near future, the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro is expected to carry over virtually unchanged.
Some new exterior colour schemes are the sole thing one might expect, as far as updates for MY 2021 are concerned.
There are no plans to update the car’s interior either, apart from some equipment rearrangements across Camaro’s trim levels.
Although the Camaro does not offer as many various V8 configurations as its Dodge counterpart, but it does come with a 4-cylinder as its base engine. A 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder in question makes an athletic 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque while reporting respectable fuel economy scores simultaneously.
The mid-range 3.6L V6 yields 335 ponies, while the range-topping 6.2L V8 cranks up 455 horses and ananalogous amount of torque. Each model of the Camaro is available with both a standard 6-speed stick, or an optional 8-speed auto, all of which are rear-wheel driven.
The base models might start from under $26,000, but the ultimate ZL1 package is priced at minimum of $63,000 prior to extras.
- 2021 Ford Mustang
Incidentally, the Ford Mustang is still the best-selling pony car in the market by a long shot which is unlikely to change anytime soon, as is this generation’s design language.
So, expect the 2021 Ford Mustang to carry over the way it is, except for receiving some new installations such as upgraded wheels and/or new paint schemes.
Interior has also been modernized and several features previously reserved for higher trims have sought their way to lower levels.
Also, a heated steering wheel is now available, coupled with heated and ventilated seats.
The current Mustang’s powertrain line-up comprises four different powertrains. At the lower end of the spectrum, there’s a perfectly balanced 2.3L turbocharged 4-cylinder mill capable of putting up 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. The Mustang GT benefits from a 5.0L V8 naturally aspirated mill which generates 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of twist.
Both units are offered with a definitive 6-speed manual or an optional 10-speed auto. The Shelby part of the Mustang line-up begins with the old GT350 and GT350R acquaintances. Both are available exclusively with a 6-speed stick and 5.2L V8 with a flat-plane crank combo. They yield 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque.
The Mustang are priced from under $27,000, but the most extravagant Shelby GT350R and GT500 cost $73,500 and $73,000 respectively.
