Muscle cars have always rivaled each other in terms of maximum power. Chevrolet and Dodge have been upping the ante in recent years, leaving the Mustang further behind. The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1E and the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon have emerged this year as the latest contestants in this performance rivalry. How do the two compare?

Bragging Rights

Buying one of these top performers is as much about bragging rights as it is about what the car can do. If you think of it that way, the playing field is quickly leveled between the Camaro's fastest edition and the Challenger's. The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1E is definitely worth bragging about. The Camaro weighs a whole lot less than the Challenger. In fact, the 1E package helps it drop even more weight. This gives it a better horsepower-to-weight ratio with its own supercharged V8 powertrain. The engine output is 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. With the 1LE package, the speedy ZL1 cuts its lap time by 13 seconds. On the track, Car and Driver writes that few cars feel as stable while braking in corners.

Beyond the Track

If you are planning on sticking to the track, the limited-run Demon might make sense. However, if you want a car to drive on the road, the Camaro ZL1 1E is a more logical pick. Chevy packs it full of dash tech, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These systems make it easy to access internet streaming radio. It also lets you download navigation apps that can read directions to you. The driver's cockpit is packed with advanced instrumentation to aid you in everyday driving tasks. The smaller size helps you fit neatly into any parking space. The competitive engine can step back from its more powerful output while allowing the car to own the road.


The Camaro's sexy style has always attracted sports car lovers more than the muscled look of the Challenger. Camaros are clearly built by the same automaker that created the supercar Corvettes, and perhaps that's why these Chevys garner greater attention as more fashionable and more sophisticated. As previously mentioned, the Camaro is much lighter than the Challenger. In terms of weight and looks, the Challenger is bulky for a sports car, The retro style seems quite old-fashioned when parked by the modern Camaro. Even with aerodynamic additions, it can't match the natural aerodynamics of the trim Camaro.
