2016 Ford Mustang

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro and the 2016 Ford Mustang are both sports coupes from American manufacturers, and they’ve been rivals since birth in the 1960s. The new models mark a change in the sports car landscape, since both of these models now offer turbocharged four-cylinder engines for the first time ever. Of course, both models still offer V6 and V8 engines, but you might be surprised just how efficient and powerful these new-generation sports cars really hare. Find out more about how they compare side-by-side below.

Power and Performance

Compare V6 options, and the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro comes out ahead. The 2016 Ford Mustang can be had with a 3.7L V6 that makes 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, while the Camaro comes fitted with a 3.6L V6 that generates 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque.

Look at the V8 powertrains, then, and the difference is similar. The Mustang GT comes with a 5.0L V8 that makes 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, and the equivalent Camaro SS gets a 6.2L V8, generating a considerably more impressive 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. The V8-equipped Camaro will sprint to 60 mph in a mere 4.0 seconds, while the V8-equipped Mustang GT will hit 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. No matter how you slice it, the Camaro wins outright.

Safety and Security

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has another leg up on the 2016 Ford Mustang thanks to the OnStar telematics system which gives you automatic emergency service notification, stolen vehicle assistance, and enhanced roadside assistance. The Ford Sync system doesn’t include those features on the 2016 Mustang.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

These two cars offer identical warranties, both when it comes to bumper-to-bumper coverage and powertrain coverage. One thing the 2016 Ford Mustang does not offer is complimentary maintenance, while the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro comes with two years a of scheduled service.
