Cruising around Dallas, Plano, or Richardson in a sports car like the Ford Mustang or the Chevy Camaro not only looks cool, but it also feels cool. While it’s hard to beat what these two classic cars offer, the team at Five Star Ford Dallas has set out to compare them so you’ll know which one is better suited to your lifestyle.
Are you ready to feel the ground quake beneath you and hear the engine roar as you navigate the streets? You’ll find incredible power under the hoods of both the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro, but the Mustang stands out in this realm.
Each vehicle offers four engines, offering more options for your drives. When fully equipped with the Shelby GT500 trim, the Mustang produces an unbelievable 760 horsepower.
Compare that to the available 6.2L Supercharged V8 engine in the Chevy, which offers 650 horsepower, and you’ll find the Ford can provide the most oomph on your drives.
Of course, that just covers one of the four available engines. The rest of the Ford engines are:
- 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4: 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque
- 5.0L Ti-VCT V8: 450 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque
- Mach 1 5.0L Ti-VCT V8: 470 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque
The Chevy engine lineup is:
- 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder: 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque
- 3.6L V6: 335 horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque
- 6.2L V8: 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque
Even if you stick with the standard engines, you’ll find the Mustang has more power than the Camaro.
Power is one thing. Being able to handle it is a whole different ball game. Thankfully, the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro are up to the challenge. Let’s see which one will be easier for drivers to handle.
The Mustang offers a couple different features that are easily accessible. Across all Mustang trims, you’ll find a power-assisted handling feature that has three different selectable drive modes to help you drive the way you want.
You can also make great use of standard launch control, which combines brake, traction, and powertrain control to ensure quick starts over a number of different road conditions.
When road conditions become difficult, the available MagneRide® Damping System in the Ford Mustang will help make your ride smooth no matter what.
The Chevy Camaro offers features like Magnetic Ride Control, which is similar to MagneRide®. However, to get that feature, you’ll have to add a performance package. That being the case, you’ll find the features in the Ford to be more accessible and handle better than the Camaro.
From the racetrack to the hiking trails, you’re exploring all over town. Every minute of your drive should be as much fun as the destination, which is why you’ll want to hear about the high-tech features these sports cars boast.
Regardless of where you’re going, you want to listen to your tunes your way, and the Mustang and the Camaro allow you to do just that. Both vehicles allow you to easily connect your phone with:
- Apple CarPlay™
- Android Auto™
This integration will let you access your music and more without having to look at your phone.
Where the Ford stands out over the Chevy is with its powerful audio system. Feel the strum of the guitar, the boom of the bass, and the pounding of the drums via an available 12-speaker B&O® Sound System by Bang & Olufsen® with an in-trunk subwoofer. This will not only make your music crystal clear, but you’ll also let people know where you are at all times.
By comparison, the Chevy has an available 9-speaker system by Bose® in the coupe and a 7-speaker Bose® system in the convertible version.
When it comes to all the things you want in a sports car—namely, performance, handling, and a booming audio system—the team at Five Star Ford Dallas believes drivers in Dallas, Plano, and Richardson, will prefer the Mustang over the Chevy Camaro. The best way to experience this amazing car is to take it for a test drive. So, when you’re ready, get in touch with us!
