2020 Ford Mustang Reviews: Mustang vs Challenger

2020 Ford Mustang Reviews: Mustang vs Challenger

Here at River City Ford, we absolutely love the Ford Mustang. Every model, from the EcoBoost Fastback, to the BULLITT, to the Shelby GT500, has been carefully crafted to deliver powerful performance and sleek styling. We are so confident in the superiority of this lineup of vehicles that we're willing to put it in a head-to-head challenge: the Ford Mustang vs the Dodge Challenger. Ironically named, since we don't think it poses much of a challenge here.
