Mustang Takes On Dodge Charger Scat Pack 392 For Quarter-Mile Supremacy

Charger Mustang

A Ford Mustang GT squares off against a Dodge Charger 392 Scat Pack at a Las Vegas drag strip, and we’ve got the video.

It's easy to forget that Fiat Chrysler makes a muscle car other than the Challenger sometimes. The Charger looks more like a family four-door than anything in the Dodge lineup these days, but it still has powerful engine options and it still weighs roughly the same as the two-door Challenger, making it an equally acceptable drag racer.

For the SRT 392, the Charger gets a 6.4-L (or 392-cubic inch) HEMI V8 engine with 485 horsepower and 476 lb-ft of torque. Zero to sixty takes just 4.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 182 mph. An 8-speed automatic transmission shunts power to the rear wheels, while Brembo brakes and Bilstein shocks keep the Charger under control at all times.

The Mustang GT gives up 20 hp to the Charger and also over 50 lb-ft of torque, but a good driver can accelerate from zero to sixty in just 4 seconds. A 10-speed automatic transmission is the more efficient option, but judging by the way this Mustang bucks on every gear change, we're guessing this driver opted for the 6-speed manual.

Although more powerful, the Charger gives up 700 lbs to the Mustang which gives the smaller pony car a huge weight advantage. But since the Mustang is a manual, it'll come down to the skill of the drivers in these races.

Since this race takes place in Las Vegas, the heat typically causes quarter-mile times to suffer, so don't expect any record-breaking runs here.

In the first race, the Mustang driver spins his wheels for a good second and costs him the race. finishing in 14.34 seconds compared to the charger's 13.7 seconds. In the second race, the Mustang gets a much better start as the Charger driver seems asleep at the wheel.

The third race is the decider. Check out the video above to see which car is the winner.
