What Is a Muscle Car?

First thing's first, let's briefly discuss what constitutes a muscle car. The term itself has roots in the 1960s and early 1970s, and it was coined to classify the high-performance, drag-race versions of American classic cars, like the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro. Typically, a car is said to be a muscle car so long as it fits these descriptors:

  • Offers a V8 engine
  • RWD as the standard drivetrain
  • Somewhat lightweight, two-door body
  • Affordably priced
  • Designed for drag racing, while remaining street legal

These are widely accepted as the classifiers for muscle cars, but you may get varying information depending on who you ask!

Ford Muscle Cars

Of course, at Dundee Ford, we're a bit partial to the Ford Mustang! If you're shopping for a 2019 Mustang, you'll find everything from the classic Mustang GT to the powerful Mustang Bullitt at our showroom near Elgin. The 2019 Mustang Bullitt fits the bill for classic muscle cars, sporting a standard 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine that delivers an unbelievable 480 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. However, you can certainly feel the power of a muscle car without the V8 engine! When the Mustang is equipped with a fuel-efficient 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 engine, you'll still get up to 310 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.
