The 10 Most Awesome American Muscle Cars

Ford Atlas

“Built Ford Tough” is more than just a catchy marketing slogan, and the company’s truck of the not-so-distant future is proof. It has a next-generation EcoBoost (Ford’s name for its efficient-but-powerful engines) that will create leading fuel efficiency and capability. Inside, lightweight seating allows for extra legroom, and “floating” instrument pods and glove-friendly buttons keep everything nice and pushable. Most importantly, though, the thing looks like a goddamn beast. Ford, let’s put this thing on the market already, shall we?

Spec Check: 
Engine: Next-gen twin-turbo EcoBoost
Body: High-strength steel, including boron Cargo Cradle 
Weight Capacity: 500 pounds
Frame: 55,000 psi high-strength steel ladder frame


Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

Jeep has been at the forefront of SUV technology ever since your grandpa was patrolling the North African front during WWII. Well, they’re pushing the boundaries yet again with the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT. It’s the most powerful (that is, most fun) version ever made, with the same giant 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 under its hood as the Challenger SRT. The exterior is manlier than ever—we particularly like the blacked-out headlamps—and the interior has all the leather, suede, and technology your spoiled heart desires.

Spec Check:
Price: $62,995
Engine: 6.4-liter Hemi V-8
Horsepower: 470
Torque: 465 lb.-ft.
Payload: 1,350 lbs.
Maximum Trailer Weight: 7,200 lbs.

BONUS: Harley-Davidson Dyna Street Bob

With the possible exception of George Washington’s weird haircut (what’s up with that?), there is nothing more American than a Harley. This Dyna Street Bob maintains the tradition, combining classic performance with a modern look. A solo bobber seat not only adds style but keeps you comfortable and committed to life on two wheels. Powered by a twin-cam engine with a six-speed “Cruise Drive” transmission, it’s guaranteed to give you a smooth ride (assuming you don’t run into any angry biker gangs).
