There are five muscle cars in the United States: the Dodge Challenger, the four-door Dodge Charger, the Chevrolet Camaro, the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Corvette. Before you thank us for saying such a fake, remember that the list above was according to Tim Kuniskis, manager of FCA Passenger Cars.
In an exclusive interview with Muscle trucks and trucks, Kuniskis said that the muscle car race is down to these five cars. He acknowledged the truth that Corvette is not exactly a muscle car, but online shopping behavior dictates that he include the Chevy sports coupe in the list.
What does this mean? According to Kuniskis, buyers of SRT chargers and challengers tend to include Chevy Corvette on their shopping list. And it’s not just a wildcard. these muscle car buyers add Corvette to their lists.
If you ask us, it’s not a surprise at all. When comparing the prices of SRT chargers and challengers, the current C8 Corvette is relatively close to their range. Although it is important to note that Kuniski’s statement did not clarify whether he is talking about the C7 Vette or the current mid-engine version.
Cross-shopping and even trading in completely different car ratings are not heard, especially from an FCA brand. Last year, Jeep North America CEO Scott Tallon said in an interview that American muscle cars – especially the Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro and Dodge Challenger – are being traded for the Jeep Wrangler.
Tallon also said that one of the most competitive submission requests they have received is between the Nissan GT-Rs and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. This only proves that competition is no longer restricted within the segment.
