10 Best Used Muscle Cars Under $50,000

10 Best Used Muscle Cars Under $50,000

Big cars with a lot of horsepower that have a lot of fun – that’s the ethos of the muscle cars, and there is no shortage of them on this list. In fact, there are no cars under 400 horsepower on this list, and most have 500 horsepower or more. In fact, none are older than 8 years and a few are practically new. Who says you can’t get much for a used muscle car? We certainly don’t, especially if you work with a reasonably healthy budget.

Here are 10 of the best used muscle cars under $50,000.

1. 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

With classic and modern muscle car looks and a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 ready to roast the rear wheels with 707 horsepower of knuckle-dragging muscle, the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is one of the truest muscle cars of all time, and a great bargain for under $50,000.

If you love the Challenger but wish it had five or four door seating, you’ll love the 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. With the same brutally supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi and 707 horsepower, the Charger Hellcat adds a dose of everyday practicality to this otherwise over-the-top formula.

Those looking for a little more finesse while staying true to their muscle car roots – not to mention a significant contribution of the latest technology in the car – will find a great companion in the nearly new Ford Mustang GT 2021. While the Mustang range extends into and beyond Hellcat territory with the 760-horsepower GT500, the 460-horsepower Mustang GT is plenty of muscle for most. It’s also nicely equipped with leather seats, two-zone climate control and mood lighting if you opt for the GT Premium. Find Ford Mustang models for sale near you

2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

Combining a 6.2-liter, 580-hp supercharged V8 with the agile, comfortable platform and distinctive style of the fifth-generation Camaro, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was born. Definitely less track-oriented than the LS7-powered Z/28, the Camaro ZL1 takes the true spirit of a muscle car with plenty of power and comfort, yet brings it into the modern era with a surprising dose of handling and control .

2016 Chevrolet SS

Born of GM’s Australian Holden division, the 2016 Chevrolet SS is available any way you want, as long as it’s that way with a 6.2-liter naturally aspirated 415 horsepower V8, as that’s the only engine option in this muscular sedan. Also available with a manual transmission, the Chevy SS is a modern car steeped in muscle car tradition and heritage. Find Chevrolet SS models for sale near you

6. 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

While the muscle cars of yesteryear were great in a straight line, their braking and turning performance was often laughable. That no longer applies to a muscle car, but especially to the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. As much a sports car as it is a muscle car, the GT350 not only steers and brakes admirably, but also has a high-revving 5.2-litre flat-wing V8, putting out 526 horsepower and whining like a Ferrari.

7. 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

If the combination of the big V8 power and the sharp handling of a sports car sounds good, but you prefer Bowties to Blue Ovals, then look no further than the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. With motorsport-grade suspension and a beastly 7.0-liter V8 producing 505 horsepower that adds up to 300 pounds in weight savings over the Camaro ZL1, the Z/28 takes the muscle car to its theoretical limit.

2014 Mercedes-AMG E63 S-Model Wagon

Wait, what’s this German luxury car doing here in my muscle cars? Look better, friend! It’s true: At first glance, this 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model wagon looks like a European luxury car made for moving people and equipment. On closer inspection, however, it is clear that there are some German muscles. Under the hood is a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 with an output of 577 hp. Couple that power with the 4Matic all-wheel drive and you’ll be roasting the traffic light competition as well as your tires. Find Mercedes-Benz E-Class models for sale near you

2015 BMW M3

2015 BMW M3

Hey, another German sports car? Well, yes – but listen to us. Although the 2015 BMW M3 has a (gasp!) 6-cylinder instead of a V8, it has a power output of 425 horsepower, powers the rear wheels, hits 60 mph in under 4 seconds and does admirably at to cross the state — or the Lower 48. It’s as comfortable as it is fast. Oh, it’s also easy to handle and looks great too. Find BMW 3 Series models for sale near you
