With its stablemate, the Dodge Charger, the Dodge Challenger is one of the last remaining modern muscle cars. The Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro have both eschewed their “retro” pha...

Looks/Style Ranked 2020 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS Coupe RWD better.
"First off it is a chevy, and a has a vortex engine. Chevy engines are true, true and tested. I have owned three corvettes, and now its time to own three camaros."
Front Seats Ranked 2020 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS Coupe RWD better.
"The seats mold to the person, just like a race car. Dont get me wrong; the Challengers front seats are really nice, but they are to bulky. Sometimes bulky does not mean comfort or support."

Power Ranked 2012 Jeep Compass Latitude 4WD worse.
"Caliber felt like a lighter vehicle that was easier for the small 4-cylinder engine to handle."
Family Car Ranked 2012 Jeep Compass Latitude 4WD worse.
"Overall, my Caliber was a very honest, very reliable, very economical, and very unpretentious vehicle. It never left me wishing I had FWD under regular driving conditions and, on the few occasions I drove it on unpaved roads or other mild off-road conditions it performed capably. Even though it was the base model it met every need I had for a durable, comfortable, economical daily driver."
