For 2020, the best V8 muscle cars come in just four basic flavors: Camaro, Challenger, Charger, and Mustang. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find out that each model has multiple V8 powertrains to satisfy your appetite for performance.
That’s why we’re doubling down on all four to showcase two of the top engines from each lineup. In all cases, we’ve included some of the fastest, quickest examples ever sold for each nameplate. Also, because those trims are relatively pricey, we’ve got the quartet’s least expensive V8 choices here as well. And don’t forget that the modern-day muscle cars are equipped with modern-day features, too, so you can enjoy many advanced technologies and premium luxuries. We then round out our selections with two V8 muscle-car alternatives that you’ll have to see for yourselves.
