best late model muscle cars for 2016 Corvette Z06
The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 MSRP: From $79,400.

There's not quite anything like strapping into the driver's seat of a late model American muscle car. Having all that power and speed at your command is a feeling like no other.

Muscle cars have been a long time iconic symbol of American culture and the modern muscle car love affair has not changed much at all.

Automakers have done a great job with exterior styling and squeezing every little drop of horsepower out of today's modern day eight-cylinder engines. After mating them up with a high performance transmission and the perfect gear ratio. You have the perfect storm when it comes to shooting off the line.

The Cadillac CTS-V has been in production since 2003. If you're in the market for a very powerful luxury sedan, the CTS-V should be on your list. This vehicle is a prime contender to the much more expensive European counterparts in its category. The CTS-V comes with a supercharged V8 pumping out 640-horsepower, improved suspension in 2016, with a stiffer body structure to handle the power.

If you have a limited budget, you may want to take a look at the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. Fully redesigned for 2016, the base model comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder and new accessories under the hood. Some do say there is poor visibility and bad blind spots when sitting in the driver's seat and many people have complained about feeling boxed in while driving the vehicle. Don't take our word for it, if you're looking to drive a piece of American history, put the Camaro on your shopping list.

Before Buying a New Muscle Car Do Research Online First

Before buying a new muscle car, it’s important to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the same vehicle in your local area. Otherwise, you won’t know what's a good price to pay for the car.

As always, I highly recommend using an online referral service such as TrueCar No Haggle Pricing or CarClearanceDeals.com, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available in the marketplace.
