Unlike decades past, sports cars and muscle cars are producing much more horsepower. Better yet, you can get over 400 ponies in a coupe and even a sedan for under $50,000 now. If you want considerable power on a budget, here are some of the most powerful cars on the market for under $50,000, like the R/T Scat Pack and Nissan Z Sport. 

  • Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack
  • Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack
  • Chevrolet Camaro 2SS
  • Ford Mustang GT Premium
  • Nissan Z Sport
  • BMW M240i xDrive

How much power does a 2022 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack have?

The 2022 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. All that power is courtesy of a naturally aspirated 6.4L Hemi V8. That’s enough power to snag it a spot on the list of the most powerful cars under $50,000. To that end, you can snag a 2022 Charger R/T Scat Pack for a starting price of $48,980.

Is the 2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack fast?

The 2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack can hit 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds on its way to a quarter-mile time of 13.2 seconds. Acceleration like that is due to the shared powerplant with the Charger Scat Pack, namely a 392 cubic-inch V8. Furthermore, the Challenger R/T Scat Pack has a starting price of $46,650, making it even cheaper than the four-door Charger Scat Pack.

Is the Camaro 2SS one of the most powerful cars under $50,000?

The Chevrolet Camaro 2SS marries a powerful naturally-aspirated 6.2L V8 engine with luxury features like heated leather front seats and a heated steering wheel. Better yet, your 6.2L V8 will produce 455 horsepower, five more than the 2022 Ford Mustang GT. Also, the well-equipped muscle car will set you back a starting price of just $43,695.

Is the Ford Mustang GT Premium one of the most powerful cars under $50,000?

The Ford Mustang GT Premium shares a 450-horsepower Coyote powerplant with the standard GT. However, the GT Premium adds leather seats with heating and ventilation, dual-zone climate control, and several other features the GT lacks. Also, the GT Premium can be yours for a starting price of $44,460. Who said you couldn’t have a bit of luxury in your pony car on the list of the most powerful cars under $50,000?

According to TrueCar, it barely undercuts that $50,000 price point with a starting cost of $49,545.
