2016 Ford Mustang vs. 2016 Chevrolet Camaro

Looking for the perfect muscle car that will see you through months of summertime fun in Peotone? You might be trying to choose between the 2016 Ford Mustang or the 2016 Chevy Camaro for your dream car. But which car brings you the power you want with the performance features you need to drive the fastest machine in Bradley? Terry's Ford can help with this handy comparison guide!


The 2016 Ford Mustang has plenty of choices for the powerful, speedy engines you love from Ford. The base engine is a 3.7L V6 engine, which uses a twin independent variable cam shaft timing system and sequential multi-point fuel injection to produce 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with a 6-speed Select Shift automatic transmission with paddle shifters for a smooth and easy shift, and it gets up to 28 mpg highway. You can also opt for the EcoBoost engine, which is a 2.3L 4-cylinder engine that uses turbocharged fuel injection for more speed when you need it with better fuel efficiency and lower emissions than ever! This engine produces 310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque, getting up to 32 mpg highway. Upgrade to the GT, and you'll get an impressive 5.0L V8 engine that uses the Ti-VCT system to produce an astonishing 435 hp and 400 lb-t of torque, getting 25 mpg highway. Finally, the Shelby GT will land you a 5.2L V8 engine that uses an old-fashioned flat plane crank to get amazing power without sacrificing weight. This engine uses a port fuel injection system with twin high flow pumps to produce an incredible 526 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque with its Tremec 6-speed manual sport transmission.

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has a choice of three engines. The base engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with turbocharged fuel injection and variable valve timing, which uses direct fuel injection to produce a mere 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque with a manual transmission. The upgraded 3.6L V6 engine produces 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque, while the 6.2L V8 engine produces 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. You can choose from a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic transmission. However, the fuel efficiency of the Camaro's engines has not yet been determined.


The 2016 Ford Mustang has features that you'll love for performance, comfort, and convenience. Not all of these features are standard in the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, however. Some of them may be available as pricey extras, and some of them may not be possible to add to the Camaro at all. See what you'll get when you buy a Mustang:

  • Track Apps provide performance metrics for your muscle car, with six menu buttons that show you stats like lateral and longitudinal g-forces, acceleration times, top times, saved results, and more
  • Launch control is a Ford exclusive system that integrates the traction control, brakes, and powertrain control to ensure that you have a consistent and smooth start for any driving conditions, helping you achieve professional level torque balance and acceleration
  • Electronic line lock helps to lock the front brakes while releasing the rear ones in order to let you spin and loosen your rear tires for a more impressive performance without having to balance out the brakes and acceleration pedal, which can cause damage to your car
  • Four selectable drive modes that let you customize your car's handling and response to your liking, including settings for normal road driving, snow and wet road driving, sport road driving, and track road driving
  • Integral link independent rear suspension that is tuned to improve body roll and isolate imperfections or jolts in the road
  • Magnetic suspension system with high performance driving dynamics, using the MagneRide damping system that uses magnetic power and fields to shield you from the roughest road surfaces using motion sensors and magnetic energy
  • Bucket seats that cradle you with high performance bolsters for a comfortable and spacious ride wherever you go, using driver's seat lumbar support to keep your back limber and supple on the longest drives
  • Entertainment equipment like an in-dash mounted CD player with MP3 capability, supplemented by nine performance speakers that give you great sound even at high speeds
  • Rear lip spoiler that reduces turbulence for a more aerodynamic performance with more control over your car
