Refreshing or Revolting: 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 vs Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 vs Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye
Which super muscle car looks like it really means business?
Ford promised that its 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 will be the most powerful street-legal Ford yet, and with 760 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque on tap from its supercharged 5.2-liter V-8, it's well-equipped for a smokin' good time on the track. The 2020 GT500 also has looks that kill. Unlike lesser Ford Mustangs that have a new front fascia with reshaped headlights as part of a refresh, the GT350 and GT500 stuck with the angrier pre-facelift look.
The large grille that extends all the way down, oversized front lower air intakes, reshaped front fenders, and thin headlights give the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 an imposing visage. Additional aero bits come as part of the Handling package. Compared to its chief competitors, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the GT500 has the most eye-catching potential unless you consider the ZL1 1LE, which has dive planes and a front splitter. From the side, all three muscle cars look pretty conventional since they're all coupes; however, the Challenger has the most retro styling going on courtesy of its upright greenhouse. The GT500 and Camaro's low-slung roofs give a modern twist to the formula, and the Shelby snake badge on the Ford's front fender hints at its performance potential.
