5 New Muscle Cars for Under $30,000

By  | 


A muscle car fan will always opt for a V8 powered car and with plenty on the second-hand market, you can find something decent for around $30,000.
However, if you are looking for a new car, then your options are more limited, but there are a few options out there in this price band, giving you access to the new muscle car breed.

Ford EcoBoost Mustang

Mustang have been doing very well in the sales stakes recently, both home and abroad.
$30,000 may not get you the full bore V8 version, but you can opt. for one of the four-cylinder eco-boost engines, which can deliver 310 HP and 320lb. ft. of torque. For the average driver, the four-cylinder Mustang can still give you that muscle/pony car experience.

Dodge Charger SE

Prices for the base SE model Dodge Charger start at $27,995, with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 292HP engine and a 8 speed transmission with the looks of its Hellcat counterpart.
The SXT model is a touch under $30,000 at $29,995. If you can stretch to the R/T model at $33,895 you get 370HP and more goodies for your money.

Dodge Challenger SXT

We would all like the Hellcat model at $64,195, but you can still get that muscle car feel in the SXT for $26,995 with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 305HP and an 8 speed transmission.
The SXT Plus model has the same horsepower rating as the SXT, but with more goodies.
Like the Charger above, the R/T model is slightly over $30,000 at $31,995, but comes with a 375 hp engine and six speed manual transmission.

Chevrolet Camaro LT

Ironically, the new Camaro LT with its 2L engine has 275HP, which is greater than the original 350ci. Z/28 with 245 HP.
You may not get the full V8 experience, but you get a stiffened chassis, great handling experience and a full muscle car for the $30,000.

Jeep Wrangler

An odd choice to add to this list, but the Jeep Wrangler can deliver 285HP from its Pentastar V6, with off-road capability and removable top.
With the Dodge Hellcat engine being dropped into this baby in the future, the Jeep will soon be a ‘muscle Jeep’ so why not get in on the act now.
