Truthfully it has never been a better time to buy a muscle car. Equally true, it's never been a better time to buy a non-V8 muscle car.

Whether it be the EcoBoost Mustang, the RS Camaro or the V6 Challenger all offer shoppers more than 300 horsepower- which for context blows the doors off our '86 Mustang GT's piddly 200 stock horsepower. gathered the three small engined pony cars (Camaro 2.0T was unavailable at the time) for a weeks worth of testing:
  • On a racetrack outside of Phoenix to see how well they performed in zero-to-60-mph tests, quarter-mile times and speeds, and 60-mph-to-zero braking distance tests.
  • Driven on a 130-mile real-world mileage course in and around Phoenix.
  • Judges drove them back-to-back-to-back on the same pavement to evaluate ride, handling, comfort, acceleration and more.
What did they think of the EcoBoost Mustang?

"The EcoBoost really does have more of a European-style coupe feel to it than outright muscle car, and that's just fine, as it really has expanded the appeal of the Mustang to a whole new audience."

I won'y ruin the rest of the test for you, head on over to for full results and comments
