Top 5 Reviews and Videos of the Week: Challenger, Mustang Duke It Out on the Drag Strip

2018 Ford Mustang GT PP1

Racing into the No. 1 slot on our list of the top five Cars.com videos of the week is our head-to-head matchup of the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 and the 2018 Ford Mustang GT. Both cars bring plenty to the drag strip — but which will come out on top?

This Challenger is built for drag-racing, and is even named after the 1,320 feet in the quarter-mile Dodge claims it can do in 11.7 seconds. It comes to the track with a naturally aspirated 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 that puts out 485 horsepower and makes it a pretty tough competitor.

“Do you really need a single-seater, drag-special, limited-edition Challenger to go 11 seconds in the quarter mile?” asks Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek.

Perhaps you don’t. While the Mustang’s 5.0-liter V-8 generates only 460 hp, it’s still a lighter car than the Challenger. And in the past, we’ve done an 11.9-second run in this very same Mustang, so it shouldn’t be counted out in this competition.

In reviews this week, the 2020 Toyota Supra finds itself at the top of the list, up from fifth place last week. No. 2 is our ever-popular review of the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. The once-king 2020 Kia Telluride has fallen during the last few weeks and now sits in third place. Following that is another Subaru SUV — this time the 2019 Forester. And finally, still clinging to the list at No. 5, is the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan.
