Chevy Camaro 2SS vs Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback

The granddaddys of the muscle car world are back for yet another contest to see who’s the very best. After a refresh last year, the 2019 Mustang doesn’t provide numerous adjustments from the previous design. The all-new Chevy Camaro gets a bit of an external refresh, consisting of Front & Rear fascia upgrades, and brand-new sculpted LED taillights. The brand-new taillights are specifically great as they offer the rear end an extra strong appearance.

Top Design Highlights

The Chevy Camaro and the Ford Mustang both take styling hints from their older muscle car brethren, specifically when considering the taillamps. The Ford Mustang’s taillights appear as if they’ve been pulled from a ’70 Fastback and haven’t changed much since then. On the other hand, the Camaro’s freshly upgraded LED taillights look like a modern-day interpretation of the Rally Sport taillights of the very early 1970s without being a direct copy. Inside, the huge shift knobs and round air vents pay tribute to the traditional versions of these cars. It’s when you look at the details that you really see Camaro separating itself from Mustang.


Performance Highlights:

Tire destroying power is what defines these modern-day pony cars. Both automobiles come outfitted with powerful V8 engines and either a 6-speed standard or a 10-speed auto transmission. The Camaro features 455 horse power, the Mustang has 460hp. The Ford Mustang has 420 ft. lbs of torque, the Chevy Camaro has 455. Their gas mileage is nearly identical, but the Camaro weighs a smidge less and that makes it a little bit faster in the quarter mile and in 0-60 times. The Camaro actually is a bit better in the corners, too. Camaro enthusiasts would never get a Mustang and vice versa, but if you are open minded then the Camaro is the much better muscle car.


Top Technology Highlights

Both cars have choices such as available gauge clusters that can be set up to show various driver settings & available navigation. However, the Camaro’s most recent bit of technology is incredibly refined and very easy to look past. If you check out the rearview mirror, nothing appears new but as a matter of fact, the mirror has two settings. The initial setting works as a regular rearview mirror, the great tech combination is that it’s additionally linked to an electronic camera. Making use of the video camera function enables you to see more of what is behind you without obstructions – like your passengers– obstructing your sight. While both vehicles have Android Auto™/ Apple CarPlay™, a Heated Steering Wheel and a Drive Mode Selector as Standard Features just the Camaro has a HUD and Memory Seats/Mirrors as standard attributes, those attributes set you back additional money on the Mustang.
