Those who enjoy racing at high speeds and driving a car that has plenty of performance often consider buying the Chevy Camaro or the Ford Mustang. Both American-made car models have a long history of reliability and power after several decades in the industry. When you're looking to turn heads as you sit behind the wheel of a sharp vehicle, there are a few factors to compare between the Mustang and Camaro.

Specs at a Glance

Performance

Most people who are considering owning the Camaro or Mustang want to know how well each car performs. Although it's a head-to-head challenge, the newest Camaro outshines the Mustang due to its 6.2-liter engine that offers 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. You can take advantage of magnetic ride control, five levels of Performance Traction Management, and sharp handling that is still delicate and tight with each turn.

The 2018 Ford Mustang engine noises are extremely loud, which can be inconvenient for those who want a car that can also be used for their daily commute. The deafening sound of the engine is noisier than the quiet interior of the Camaro. It has quicker acceleration than its predecessor with shorter gears and a fair amount of fuel economy. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a stick shift and is built with gears that are delayed when it's in the manual mode. The pedal is also moderately firm, and the brakes respond quickly.

Interior Features

The newest version of the Chevy Camaro's interior has an exceptional layout with how everything is arranged with a classical panel that is front and center. It has a heritage Camaro design on the dashboard with center vents that make it easy to stay cool or warm in the front seats. Large analog gauges are also installed with a configurable display that has plenty of visibility for the driver. A wireless charging pad is available in the backseat when you want to juice up your smartphone while on the go.

The layout of the dashboard is awkward compared to the Camaro's interior setting, but it still offers a digital instrument cluster, which makes it easy to switch drive modes. Plenty of visibility is offered with a larger windshield that is available. The interior setting of the latest model nods to the 1960s with modern touches added to the dashboard, making for a combination of both new and old styles. Only two cup holders are available, which can be an inconvenience when you're driving with other passengers.

Exterior Features

The body of the 2018 Chevy Camaro is a lot more fierce and intimidating compared to the Ford Mustang. Although it's exterior is chunky, it's lighter than it looks, which allows it to remain a fast sports car. It's considered to be a more attractive style compared to the Mustang and takes more risk with its design.

The 2018 Ford Mustang has undergone a mild makeover with subtle changes that may not be noticeable for the average driver. The front of the car looks more aggressive due to a reshaped fascia and hood that sits lower to the ground. Its signature tail lights are still present, making it recognizable on the road with a unique front grille and subtle chrome accents, which allows it to look similar to the original model that was first released by the automaker.
