American Muscle Is Alive and Well

Driving down the street in the modern age has become boring. All you can see on the road are cookie-cutter compact and midsize SUVs. It’s quite obvious that the practicality of the family SUV has taken over the car market. But this list isn’t about practicality. The vehicles here are for getting you from point A to point B as fast as possible – and in style.

Muscle cars are synonymous with American driving culture. They are usually seen as two-door American coupes that are loud and stuffed with more raw power than they know what to do with. You’ll most likely wake up your neighbors every time you turn the key, but that’s a small price to pay for fun behind the wheel.

The Ford Mustang has been featured in movies, TV shows, and an incredible number of driveways since its inception in the 1960s. The Chevrolet Camaro has always fought the Mustang for American muscle supremacy. And the Dodge Challenger faithfully retains the iconic styling of the 1960s. But did you know there are still a few other vehicles on the road with muscle-car spirit?

We’ve included some honorable mentions near the bottom of this list, and they may have you scratching your head. But if you ever get behind the wheel of one, they’ll have you gripping the steering wheel so tight your knuckles will turn white.

Just a note: Our scores and rankings change as we get and analyze new data, so the scores you see here may not match what’s currently on the reviews.
