Ford Mustang vs. Chevrolet Camaro


The Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro are two amazing sports cars. Both cars are remarkable products of American engineering and manufacturing. The Mustang and the Camaro have been competing head to head since 1967, but with new designs for both cars in 2017, this head to head match up will be even hotter. So which car is the better sports car, the 2017 Ford Mustang or the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro?

Well, we can start to compare these two cars by looking at their specs. The 2017 Camaro V6 has a 355 horse power engine that launches the car from 0 to 60 in about 5 seconds. In comparison, the 2017 Mustang V6 has a 300 horse power engine and a 0 to 60 time in about 6 seconds. However, it is the V8 performance that means the most in these cars. The Camaro SS has 455 horse power with a 0 to 60 time in 4.0 seconds. Fords 5.0 liter Mustang gets revs at 435 horse power with a 0 to 60 time in just under 4.5 seconds. Both the mustang and the Camaro can go a step forward with the GT350 and the ZL1. The GT 350 cranks at 526 horse power compared to the Camaros ZL1 at 650 hp.

In my opinion, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro is the better buy. The Camaro out performs the Mustang in almost all aspects of racing, from handling to acceleration. Besides performance though, the Camaro has a sharper, meaner look in it compared to the Mustang. The Camaro looks more like a performance car than the mustang does. So overall, the Camaro out performs the Mustang in all aspects of racing while appearing more like a performance car than the Mustang.
