2015 Ford Mustang GT or 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS?

By  | 

Both are American icons and very well-loved muscle cars, but which of the two is a clear winner here? We analyze on some of the aspects that set the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS apart from one another.

Accordingly, the manufacturers provided the top-performing versions of the common man’s V-8 muscle car. For Chevrolet, that means a Camaro SS with the 455-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 equipped with magnetorheological dampers ($1695) and the eight-speed automatic transmission ($1495).

The $895 dual-mode exhaust doesn’t make the car any more powerful, but it delivers a Metallicavian aural assault. The top-tier 2SS trim includes cooled and heated seats, blind-spot monitoring, and ambient interior lighting that can be set to one of 24 colors (one-quarter of which are variations of pink); with it comes a price tag of $47,480.

Ford brought its 435-hp Mustang GT enhanced with the $2495 Performance pack. That add-on brings a strut-tower brace, revised suspension tune, a larger radiator, Brembo front brakes, and a ­limited-slip differential with a shorter final-drive ratio, and it’s available only with the manual transmission.

If we were to put them head to head with each other, which do you think is the likeliest winner?
