Poll: Ford Mustang GT or Chevrolet Camaro SS?

This week we compare two legendary American muscle machines, the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. Which of these automotive icons do YOU prefer?

Well, even if you can’t make up your mind you should totally vote in our latest poll. Would you do us a solid and just click on one of the cars below?

Anyway, let’s start with the Ford, which, back in the day, was introduced a couple years before its bow-tie rival. In non-special-edition trim the Mustang is available with three different engines ranging from a base V6 to an EcoBoost four-cylinder to a fire-breathing 5.0-liter V8.

And that last option is the one you really want. It delivers 435 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque, stout numbers to be certain. Power is sent to the ‘Stang’s rear tires through either a manual or automatic transmission, both of which have six ratios.

Likewise, Chevy’s offering is available with three different engines. The base unit is a turbo four, but stepping up from there you can also get a muscular V6. However, like in the Ford, the premiere engine has two banks of four cylinders.

“Special” models notwithstanding, the Camaro’s top powertrain offering is a 6.2-liter small block V8. With features like variable valve timing and direct fuel injection it puts out some pretty heroic numbers, 455 units of both horsepower and torque. A six-speed manual gearbox is on the menu, as is a technologically advanced eight-ratio automatic.

So, there you go, that covers the important basics about each of these legendary performance cars. Have you made up your mind yet? Can you pick a favorite? If so, please vote down below and let your voice be heard! If not, you can compare them here and learn even more about each one.

  • Numbers say Camaro, but the new Mustang is the hotter looking car and has better external visibility.

  • smartacus

    Napa leather seats in the GT Premium feel gooood.
    Even the rear seats feel good.

  • craigcole

    I agree on both points.

  • “Which would YOU rather, a Ford Mustang GT or Chevrolet Camaro SS?”

    THE ANSWER IS ALWAYS AND FOREVER BE THE CHEVROLET VOLT!

  • BUT FOR ME IT’S THE CHEVROLET VOLT!

  • BUT FOR ME IT’S THE CHEVROLET VOLT!!

  • ChevyMan

    I’m a Chevy guy always have been, but the new mustang is a way better looking car. Down on power compared to the camero but in the looks dept it’s blows it away.

  • Reckoning Day

    Chevy… duuuuuh !

  • Aquaflex

    The Chevy is the way to go especially if you go zL1

  • Reckoning Day

    Yes.

  • Reckoning Day

    Thank goodness we have freedom of differing opinions….

  • beltedmagnum

    LMAO you are a joke, how big of a carbon footprint does that Volt have during manufacturing let alone what to do with the battery pack when it dies…..

  • beltedmagnum

    SS 1LE or ZL1 any day !!!!!

  • Harry_Wild

    Don’t like the narrow obstructed views of the Camaro! Don’t like Mustang in generate either! I guess I have stick with the foreign luxury brands! I can see clearly out of them and they go faster and more comfy inside. Yes it double the price but you get what you pay for!

  • beltedmagnum

    What’s faster than a 2016 Camaro SS 1LE or ZL1 for less than double the price. Have you even driven a 2016 ? And no you don’t get what you pay for in many of the overpriced foreign high maintenance cars.

  • AND YOU ARE A BULLSHIT!

  • Reckoning Day

    Variety is ALWAYS good…

  • beltedmagnum

    No I’m a retired engineer that knows more than you do on the subject!! Still LMAO

  • Reckoning Day

    I GET it though.. he is saying non of the two, just Volt, so he’s probably one of those fanatical ‘enviros’….

  • beltedmagnum

    Yes we will let him get back to his tree hugging :o/ BTW did you see the picture of the new ZL1 convertible previewed at the New York Auto Show today? Looks great….

  • Reckoning Day

    ‘I get it’ doesn’t mean ‘I agree with it’……….

  • timothyhood

    The Camaro is winning in the comment section but losing in the actual poll. Hmm.

  • Z51111

    The Stang looks way better and will soon be faster again and you can even see out of it.

  • Reckoning Day

    Ahhh….. nope.

  • Reckoning Day

    Chevy always wins….

  • diehard

    yeah but the pro camaro comments are all by the same ONE person. LOL

  • Reckoning Day

    Must be a human…..
