From St. Charles to Schaumburg, Illinois drivers can’t get enough of the modern muscle car. But between the Chevy Camaro vs. Ford Mustang, which model delivers better performance? We found that, whether you compare the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 vs. Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE or any other configurations, the Chevy Camaro specs are more desirable overall. The Chevy Camaro offers a wide variety of stellar engine options, including an astounding 6.2L supercharged V8 with up to 650 hp! The Mustang may have its merits, but its top BULLITT 5.0L V8 tops out at a mere 480 hp. Plus, the Camaro can reach slightly higher fuel economy numbers as well.


Chevy vs. Ford: Interior Space and Warranties

Even when you’re not flying around the racetrack, between the Chevy vs. Ford, the Camaro is the more practical choice for Schaumburg drivers. The Camaro coupe is considered a compact vehicle, while the Mustang Fastback is a subcompact. The difference is noticeable when comparing passenger volume, where the Camaro offers nearly 10 extra cubic feet of room. Chevy also offers a more impressive warranty package with an extra year of corrosion protection and 2 years of complimentary scheduled maintenance. Ford doesn’t offer a free maintenance program, so you’ll have to pay for all of those premium oil changes out of pocket.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 vs. Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

Though it hasn’t been released yet at this point in time, you may have heard rumblings about the upcoming 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. This will be Ford’s answer to the powerhouse that is the Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE, and so far, we know that the new Shelby GT500 will feature a 5.2L Supercharged V8 engine and a 7-speed twin-clutch automatic as the sole transmission option.

When you compare that to the Supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 engine and your choice of a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission on the Camaro ZL1 1LE, it becomes clear that the ZL1 remains a superior option. Take a look at these additional performance feature highlights for the ZL1:

  • Rear Differential Cooler
  • Brembo® Front and Rear Performance Antilock Brakes
  • Extra Capacity Cooling System
  • External Engine Oil Cooler
  • Performance-Tuned Suspension
  • Dual-Mode Exhaust
  • Magnetic Ride Control

Pair these distinctive performance features with luxe interior amenities like heated and ventilated RECARO® performance front bucket seats and a sueded microfiber-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and the result is an unmatched driving experience both on and off the track.
