American cars are well known for their power and adrenaline. Ford, Pontiac, Dodge, and Chevrolet had worked hard on their reputation during the 1960s and 1970s by coming up with fast cars that lit up the streets. The American muscle cars have had their fair share of ups and downs over the years.
The original muscle car was an American made two-door sports car with a powerful engine that boasted plenty of horsepowers. Today, automakers have re-invented the traditional muscle car, and some have two doors while others have four. Some cars are completely made in America, while many are made by foreign automakers. Thanks to the advancement in technology and engineering, muscle cars are now safer and powerful than ever!
So, if you are looking for a powerful car that has equally impressive facades, then read on to learn more about the best muscle cars of 2018:

1. 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

The Demon is a must-have car for an adrenaline lover. None of the other V8 produced till now come close to the Dodge Demon. With only 3,300 cars launched in 2018, it will be a limited collection car. The suggested retail price comes close to around $85,000 – but be prepared to pay more as most dealers will keep a huge markup.
The Demon has been designed for drag racing and has a flawless combination of hardware and software. It comes with drag radials, a transmission brake, and a single seat. It has a supercharged capacity of 6.2-liter V8 and makes 808 HP on gas alone. If you want an even higher rush of speed, use 100 octane race gas that will bum it up to 840 HP.
There is also a special SRT drive mode that can be accessed via a touchscreen. You also get to play with many other settings such as steering control, suspension, and stability – all with the touch of your finger.

2. Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

While some may find the Dodge’s Hellcat a little tamed as compared to the Demon, it still a major muscle car to look forward to this year. With a muscle car exterior made of shiny metal and seriously impressive engines, this car is named Hellcat for a reason.
With a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 that makes 485 HP and 475 lb-ft; you can go with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. It also has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, excellent for 707 HP and 650 lb-ft, offering the same six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic.
Both automatic and manual have their perks. The automatic drive may be faster, but the manual is more fun to drive while still managing to do a speed of 0–60 in 3.9 seconds.

3. 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

If you are a fan of SUVs, then this one is for you. Known as the most-powerful SUV in the world, the Trackhawk is something to look out for! Establishing new standards in the SUV performance, this all-new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has the same engine and horsepower as the Hellcat’s and reaches 0-60 mph in only of 3.5 seconds.
What’s more is the state of the art brake, handling, and torque of the car that makes it a luxurious drive.


5. 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 won’t let down your expectations if you are a muscle car fan. It performs like a missile and has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that is good for 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque ready to take off the minute you press the accelerator.
It also has a genuine carbon-fiber wing that when turns, swallows 106 cubic feet of air per minute more than your regular ZL1. It also has some fascinating rubber- 305/30ZR-19s in the front and 325/30ZR-19 at the rear, which make its tires the widest ever fitted to a Camaro. You can’t go wrong with this one!

6. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R

One of the most famous in the Mustang series, GT350R is a powerful muscle car that has an impressive 5.2L flat-plane crank V8 that puts up 526 HP and 429 lb-ft of torque. While the top speed of 175 mph doesn’t seem a lot, but the fact that it needs 3.7 seconds to reach 60 mph should certainly blow your socks off.
The GT350R is much more than just a tire-burning Shelby. It’s reliable and much more stable, thanks to the improved handling dynamics.
