In today's world, muscle cars are a dying breed in the EV uprising. However there are some car manufacturers who are still trying to keep their tradional muscle cars on the streets. Here are our top five muscle cars for 2019.

Dodge Charger R/T and Hellcat

While many would choose the comparitively practical and economic 3.6L V6 engine offered in other variants of the Charger, the 5.7L V8 in the R/T producing 370 horsepower is the choice of engine for muscle car enthusiasts. With the Charger R/T you also get modern features like:

  • An 8.4 inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • 8 way electronically adjustable seats
  • An active exhaust system

If you want to take it up a notch, The Charger SRT Hellcat is the epitome of excess, with more horsepower and wider tires than any sedan needs. At the heart of every Hellcat is a supercharged Hemi 6.2L V8 that makes tremendous noise and tire smoke at the drop of your right foot. Along with heart-stopping acceleration from the 707 horsepower being produced, its widebody stance helps the big-bodied Dodge corner harder and look meaner than ever. Still, the Charger SRT Hellcat is all muscle and no finesse, which is perfectly fine for transporting families and obliterating quarter-miles. It will get you from 0-60 under 3.4 seconds and has features like:

  • Standard blind-spot monitor
  • Standard rear cross-traffic alert
  • Standard rear parking sensors

Chevrolet Camaro SS

Anyone who's watched the Transformer movies can vouch for this car's coolness. It looks mean, sexy and elegant all at the same time. The engine is no joke either, equipped with a 6.2L V8 which makes 455 horsepower. There's also an option to get it as a convertible, making it a serious competitor to the Ford Mustang V8. Standard features include:

  • Limited slip differential
  • Brembo brakes on all four wheels
  • Driver mode selector with 4 modes

Find the 455-hp 6.2-liter V-8 in the Camaro SS too boring or underpowered? Chevrolet won't tell you to get your head checked. Instead, it slaps a supercharger on that V-8, boosts the output to 650 horsepower, and installs it along with a host of suspension and styling upgrades to create the ZL1 which has features like:

  • Forward-collision warning
  • Enhanced performance data recorder
  • High definition parking camera

Dodge Challenger R/T

At first glance, you may be led to believe that the Challenger is just a 2 door version of the Charger, and to some extent, that is true. They share the same engine producing 375hp, But what sets it apart is the styling, It's the car that you used to stick posters of on the walls of your room as a teenager. It looks absolutely stunning! Standard features include:

  • Keyless entry and exit
  • Dual zone auto climate control
  • Hill start assist

As General Motors and Ford push to make their muscle cars leaner, meaner and more agile, Fiat Chrysler has taken a different route. To hell with new chassis and lighter weights, the solution is simple: add power. That’s how we got here, The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with 797 horsepower. Don't let the number scare you though, once you get out of sport mode, it feels like a comfortable sedan with a lot of grunt under the hood.

Kia Stinger GT

Who says a muscle car has to be American? The Kia Stinger 2019 GT is a muscle car in all aspects, from it's dashing exterior to it's twin turbo V6 engine which produces 365 horsepower and 376 pound feet of torque. It will launch you from 0-60 in under 4.7 seconds. Features include:

  • Brembo brakes
  • Blind spot monitoring
  • Lane change alert

Ford Mustang Bullitt and GT500

The Iconic Ford Mustang is almost a representer of American Muscle, originally a 'Pony' car, this muscle car has the best mix of outright performance with it's 5L V8, and daily drivability. While some might say that ruins the charm of a muscle car, no one can deny the fact that it's nice to have the comfort features that Ford has included. The bullitt trim was reintroduced in 2019. Standard features include:

  • 12 inch LCD digital instrument cluster
  • Electronic locking center console
