The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro and the 2015 Ford Mustang have been battling it out for decades. The two sports cars might both offer compelling performance and handling, a long list of upscale features, and attractive price tags, but there’s a good reason that the Camaro has been outselling the Mustang in recent years. Find out more below!

Power and Performance

It’s easy to compare powertrains and performance and it’s easy to see which car comes out on top. The V6 powered Camaro cranks out 323 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque while the 3.7L Mustang only makes 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque.

Compare the V8 in the Mustang GT and you’ll see that it’s a 5.0L V8 that makes 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. The equivalent Camaro SS gets a 6.2L V8 that cranks out 420 hp and 426 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the range topping Camaro gets a supercharged 6.2L V8 that makes 580 hp and 556 lb-ft of torque.

All that power will certainly make a difference on the track! The Camaro ZL1 will do the 0 to 60 mph sprint in only 3.9 seconds. The fastest 2015 Mustang GT clocks in at 4.4 seconds.

Safety

The Chevy Camaro and the Ford Mustang both earned a 5-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Crash tests aren’t the only thing to think about, however. Every Camaro comes standard with the OnStar telematics system, which gives you automatic collision notification, enhanced roadside assistance, stolen vehicle recovery assistance, and more. The Ford doesn’t come with anything like that.

Warranty

Chevrolet’s powertrain warranty lasts for 100,000 miles/5-years, while Ford only covers the Mustang’s powertrain for 60,000-miles/5-years. The Camaro also comes with 100,000-miles/5-years of roadside assistance, and the Mustang once again gets 60,000-miles/5-years. The Camaro also gets two years of complimentary maintenance—with the Ford you’ll have to foot the bill for all oil changes and scheduled maintenance.
