Powertrains and MPG
The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro has been provided with just two engine options, one focusing heavily on power and another prioritizing efficiency:
- 3.6L V6: With an output of 323 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque, this option focuses on mileage, achieving 17 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway with a manual transmission.
- 6.2L V8: This engine has a greater output of 426 hp with 420 lb-ft of torque. However, mileage dips to 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway with a manual transmission.
Ford balances their engines far more effectively, allowing Peotone drivers to blend power and efficiency rather than forcing you to pick one or the other. Each is available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission:
- 3.7L V6: With an output of 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, this entry-level engine still supplies 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway with an automatic transmission.
- 2.3L EcoBoost I-4: Beating the Camaro’s top efficiency rating, this engine provides 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with a manual transmission while still attaining a comparable output of 310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque.
- 5.0L V8: With greater horsepower than anything the Camaro can offer — 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque — and with better mileage that Chevy’s top engine at 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway with the automatic transmission, the Mustang’s V8 is clearly a winner.
This year’s Ford Mustang has benefited from a whole new suspension system, providing responsive handling that just can’t be touched by its traditional competitors, including the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro:
- Independent Rear Suspension: Aluminum alloy rear knuckles and H-arms combine with perfectly engineered Ford technology to reduce body roll during cornering, allowing Bradley drivers to travel over terrain imperfections without causing discomfort.
- All-New Front Suspension: Also new for 2015, double-ball-joint front suspension helps control the power of the mighty engines for a smooth ride even when you’re pushing your 2015 Mustang to the limits.
Comfort and Convenience Features
Ford has figured out that high-octane sports vehicles don’t need to feel as cramped as dedicated racers, even if they do mimic the exceptional performance ratings of those cars. This is noticeable when you slip easily into the interior of the new 2015 Ford Mustang, with more headroom and legroom than you’ll find in the relatively cramped 2015 Chevrolet Camaro.
Drivers of the 2015 Ford Mustang will be able to spread out and relax during their drives, and the comfort doesn’t stop there. A Selectable-Effort Electric Power-Assisted Steering system lets you choose between three power-assisted drive settings to customize the way the car feels as your drive it.
Both the 2015 Ford Mustang and the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro benefit from a suite of standard safety features, including:
- Anti-Lock Brakes
- Traction Control
- Stability Control
However, the Camaro isn’t fitted with a rearview camera as standard, making it difficult to maneuver safely in city environments. This might just result in dents and chipped paintwork, but the consequences of not seeing behind you could be much worse.
The 2015 Mustang does come with a standard rearview camera, and also includes:
- Ford MyKey: Lets you set speed limits for younger drivers.
- SYNC with MyFord: Contact 911 if a collision occurs.
