I saw threads debating whether or not a 4 door can be considered a muscle car. But what about a V6 powered car? Is 300 hp enough power for a 4 door Charger to be considered a muscle car? Your thoughts appreciated.
It can be considered whatever you want it to be. Whether others agree is a different story.I saw threads debating whether or not a 4 door can be considered a muscle car.

So I'll toss out the spare and strip down to my skivvies, and off I go!One of the older definitions was "An American made automobile with at least 1 HP for each 15 lbs of body weight". In that case, the 300 HP V6 Charger just makes it.
^ Hard to argue that's not a muscle car so I guess V6's count but out of the whole Regal line up (maybe all of GM in '87) it's by far the strongest & fastest where in the case of the Charger the V6 is the base engine with 3 above it so guess you could go either wayI see your V6 Grand National and raise you the GNX V6...
I used to think putting v6s in muscle cars was just kind of lame and pointless. It's still a muscle car whether it's a mustang v6 or charger v6.... just a slower muscle car. The ecoboost mustang 4 banger is crazy though... so it's starting to change my opinion on if engine size matters so much. I kind of think companies making v6 muscle cars diminish the muscle image of their performance ones though
Bwahahaha! Yeah, an extremely limited production car that has all of the visual appeal of a warm bowl of corn flakes "is the most beloved and popular muscle car in America".
