The 2016 Ford Mustang is a classic icon that has been reverently renewed into an impressive performance machine. The Chevy Camaro has been updated as well, but it can't hold a candle to the pure excellence that the Mustang offers.
If you are in the market for a 2016 Ford Mustang, you are probably already salivating thinking of the amazing powertrains that Ford offers with this iconic muscle car. There are three different engines available in the 2016 Mustang; a 3.7-liter V6 with 300 horsepower, a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with 310 horsepower, and a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 435 horsepower (there are also two ultra-performance Shelby GT350 models that feature an exclusive 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8 rated for 526 horsepower). Mustang shoppers can choose either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission that will deliver power effortlessly to the rear wheels of the new Mustang. The Chevy Camaro also has three engines in its lineup; a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 275 horsepower, a 3.6-liter V6 producing 335 horsepower, and a 6.2-liter V8 that makes 455 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission comes standard on all but one Camaro trim, which instead features a six-speed automatic transmission. The 2016 Ford Mustang excels in the speed department, reaching a maximum 164 mph while the Camaro could only garner 156 mph as its top speed.
Comfort takes a front seat when you get behind the wheel of a muscle machine like the new Ford Mustang. In the 2016 Mustang, you will be able to stretch out with 44.5 inches of front leg room vs. the Camaro's more cramped 42.4 inches. The Mustang also has more leg room in the rear seats than the Camaro as well as more shoulder room. You will also enjoy slightly more front-seat head room in the Mustang with 37.6 inches vs. the Camaro's 37.4 inches. The Ford Mustang may be all about performance, but it still takes driver and passenger comfort into consideration in its design.
When you are driving a performance car, fuel efficiency might not be uppermost on your mind -- but if you take it to the track to race or just use it for cruising around FL's highways, the cost of fuel is going to add up. However, if you are driving the 2016 Mustang, it won't add up as quickly thanks to the amazing efficiency of the Ford powertrains. Fuel Economy is where the 2016 Mustang really outshines the Camaro. With the EcoBoost I-4 engine, the Mustang can manage an impressive 22 city and32 highway mpg (with the automatic transmission) versus the Camaro's new 2.0-liter turbo I4, which has not yet been tested officially but is projected to earn somewhere around 30 miles per gallon on the highway. So clearly, the 2016 Ford Mustang is the winner in keeping cash in your pocket at the pump.
