Finding a sports car to handle the Bradley and Peotone roads can be extremely exciting, but which one do you choose? Two popular options are the 2016 Ford Mustang vs the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette. Each one of these vehicle delivers an insane amount of power, but only one will give you the best overall experience. If you want an affordable sports car that offers multiple power choices and an array of technology you can't live without, then it's a good idea to choose the new Mustang. Take a look at how the new Ford compares to the competition and see why you'd be making a smart choice to bring this one home today.
The most notable difference you'll see in the Mustang vs the Corvette is the price. If you choose the Mustang, you will be able to get an impressive performance vehicle for a low starting MSRP of only $24,145. This is extremely affordable and can be a great price for beginning or seasoned drivers.
If you decide to go with the competition, be prepared to dish out more than double the starting MSRP of the Mustang. The Corvette will run you at least $55,400, which is way more expensive than the Ford. If you want to spend a ton of money on a car that isn't better than the competition, then the Corvette would be a good choice. However, if you want to be smart about your investments, then the Mustang is the way to go.
Most people think of the Chevrolet Stingray as the king of performance vehicles. While this vehicle does offer an impressive powertrain, you only have one to choose from. This means that you're stuck with the same amount of power no matter what you're looking for, which is a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine that generates 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque.
However, if you decide to go with the Mustang, you'll have your choice of four different engine options—one of which is more powerful than the Corvette. The standard 5.2L V8 engine delivers 526 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. It includes 3.73 TORSEN limited slip differential and MagneRide suspension, too. You can also opt for the available 2.3L EcoBoost engine that delivers 310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque; the 5.0L engine that delivers 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque; or the 3.7L engine that generates 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Basically, if you want to choose the vehicle that gives you more options for way less money, as well as the vehicle that delivers more overall power, then the 2016 Mustang is the right vehicle to choose.
Technology is always a big selling point on vehicles, and it's no wonder that you'd want to compare the technology of the Ford vs the Corvette. With the Mustang, you'll enjoy the SYNC or SYNC3 technology. This allows you to experience hands-free calling using voice activation for safer connectivity. The SYNC technology will also automatically download your phonebook so you can more easily connect to your friends and family while on the road. SYNC also allows you to use your voice to search for and stream music, and you can even access 911 assist without an additional charge. SYNC also comes with AppLink, which allows you to connect your favorite apps to your vehicle for a more enjoyable experience.
If you choose the Chevy, you will enjoy Chevrolet MyLink. This program works similarly to SYNC by allowing you to stream music and make phone calls using voice activation. You can also sync some of your favorite apps to the vehicle for easier accessibility and use. Unlike SYNC, though, you will not have an automatic phonebook download, and you will not have access to 911. While both options may seem like a good idea, the Mustang's technology will outshine the Corvette's every time.
Bradley and Peotone drivers who want to experience the right type of power with the best possible price need to make sure to choose the 2016 Ford Mustang over the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette. After all, this vehicle offers more in terms of technology and power, and it does so for more than half the price of the Chevrolet.
