One of the most exciting periods in the history of the auto industry was the 1960s and 1970s , which became much more competitive in doling out offerings of American muscle cars. They are characterized by their big, loud and ultra-powerful rubber-burning engines. Chevy, AMC, Ford, Chrysler came out with their own versions of muscle cars with brute force and aggressive exterior. Since we love muscles cars so much, we thought it would be fun to create a list of the most powerful American muscle cars ever.

The aptly named dodge challenger demon is at the top of the list of muscle fans! This resurrected beast comes with transmission breaks, just one seat, brake dials and can even pop a wheelie! Its supercharged, 6.2 litre V-8 engine with a horsepower of 808 makes it a mega-powered, race demon! And if you think that this is not enough, wait till you bump it up with 100 octane gas that can revv up the power to 840!

- Dodge charger SRT hellcat
Touted as one of the most fierce line-ups in the hellcat series ever, this dodge is said to be “possessed by the Demon”. The dodge has a factory rated horsepower of 717 with a 656 lb ft. of torque – a number that is already high from the standard hellcat line-up. The hellcat has a 6.2 litre V-8 engine with an eight speed automatic transmission. We all know that dodge can’t stay quiet for long.
Oh, and the lion logo on the car has a red eye!
- 2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-500
With a 660 horsepower and 5.2 litre supercharged V-8, Shelby was one of the most powerful muscle cars when it first came out. With top speeds of 202 mph and a 0-60 time of 4 seconds, there’s no denying its position in our list! Want a used Ford? We have plenty in stock!
4. Cadillac CTS-V
The CTS-V version is a high-powered variant of the CTS, and boy oh boy, this is our kind of Cadillac. Claiming top speeds of 200 mph, it can go from 0-60 in about 3.6 seconds! With a 6.2 litre V8 engine, horsepower of 602, a rear wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission, this high-performance powertrain is a super sedan in the truest sense.
- 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
A slightly different spin to the classic muscle cars that first come to mind, the Grand Jeep Cherokee is one of the most powerful SUVs in the world and boasts the same horsepower and engine as the hellcats but loses by a few points standing with its 645 lb of torque compared to their 650 lb-ft rank. Its best feature is an all-wheel drive system that won’t burn any power in tire smoke. If you are looking for a burnout, this may not be your thing.
