The battle between the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro is one that doesn’t seem to ever reach an end. On saying this it is also a battle that people never seem to get tired of reading about. But is there a winner here?
The comparison that we are making here is between the Ford Mustang from 2015 and the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. This means that it is actually a battle between a muscle car that is red hot and one that has been redesigned. But how do the two match up?
For the engines it is the Chevrolet Camaro that comes out ahead as two out of the three outdo those of the Ford Mustang. The 2 litre engine is the turbocharged and this gives 310 horses. You can only get this though if you give it premium fuel.
The Ford Mustang comes out ahead for the suspension and the brakes. This is down to the fact that we have no idea about the suspension of the Chevrolet Camaro. The Mustang on the other hand has a 50 year history.
The cabin inside the Chevrolet Camaro looks to be more crowded than that of the Ford Mustang. There is an exterior that is form over function and this means there are cool ergonomic woes inside. The Camaro would be right at home on the set of the Transformers movie and the Mustang in the Fast and Furious.
When it comes to the curb weight it is the Chevrolet Camaro that comes out ahead as it managed to save 200 pounds. Some years ago it might have been the Mustang that came out ahead.
The Chevrolet Camaro is the winner this time around, but perhaps you disagree, do you think that the Ford Mustang is the winner?
