Vehicle Comparison Rundown

The Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro are both two-door muscle cars. Each is available as a coupe or a convertible. They both have rear-wheel drive. The Mustang and the Camaro have been rivals since their debuts in the 1960s, and they continue to be closely matched competitors to this day. 

Looking at their standard engines, the Ford Mustang offers 310 horsepower, while the Camaro provides a bit more, with 335 horsepower standard. For those who want even higher performance, the Mustang will take you up to 475 horsepower in the Bullitt special edition, while the Camaro SS gives you 455 horsepower to play with. For those who must have more, there are special track-focused versions of both cars, with power ratings that can exceed 600 horsepower.

Interior and cargo space are not really an area of competition here. Both the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro are comfortable for two in the front seats, cramped for two in the back seats, and have less trunk space than a compact car. In vehicles like these, space is sacrificed in the name of style. Going by the numbers, the Mustang has slightly more space overall. 

Performance, fun, and image are the reasons to buy a Mustang or a Camaro. We suggest you try them both on your favorite roads, and see which one speaks your language.
