See, what I am trying to say is that these mid-range pony cars are actually a better match for the track than either their entry-level economy counterparts or the higher-level V8 versions, because their tires AND chassis BOTH can handle twice as much power from the factory.

The T/A also laps quicker around the 'ring than even the GT and is barely slower than the LT1. The R/T will beat the EcoBoost and the LT V6 around the 'ring for sure.

Mid Tier US Sports Coupes! (equivalent to BMW M240i/M440i, Mercedes-AMG C43, Audi S5, and Porsche 911 Carrera)

Although the Challenger technically doesn't belong solely due to its V8, it actually competes right here with the other mid-tier, lesser-engine cars. With the right tune it can match the SS and GT, but it's still very heavy and slightly outdated.

Estimated tirepower ratings based on also estimated 'ring times:
7:54 V6 1LE = 766 tirepower (345÷0.45)
8:01 EcoBoost HPP = 833 tirepower (375÷0.3÷1.5)
8:20 RT/Shaker/TA = 850 tirepower (404÷0.5÷0.95)
8:20 V6 LT = 726 tirepower (345÷0.475)

The HPP is a completely standalone model, not a simple track version of the EcoBoost. Even though both have 2.3 EcoBoosts, those two have different engines. The HPP utilizes a Focus RS engine.
