2018 Ford Mustang vs 2018 Chevrolet Camaro

Your sports car should be more than just sporty. A stylish interior, powerful engine options and high performance are some of the features you’d expect. The 2018 Ford Mustang and the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro are two top competitors vying for your attention. A closer look will show you why the 2018 Ford Mustang is the sports car for you.

The most powerful Mustang has arrived with the 2018 model. Competitively priced, the 2018 Mustang still has a lower starting MSRP than the 2018 Chevy Camaro. And the 2018 Ford Mustang has been completely redesigned and is equipped with a more powerful V8 engine, new 10-speed automatic transmission and an elegant, upscale cabin.

The 2018 Chevy Camaro is offered with its strongest engine being a 6.2-liter V8 that produces 650-horsepower. If you have the need for speed, starting MSRP is $61,500. However, the 2018 Ford Mustang 5.2-liter V8 engine produces a powerful 526 horsepower but its MSRP is significantly lower at $58,045. Both vehicles can go 0-60 mph in less than four seconds when properly equipped [1][2]. And best of all, the 2018 Ford Mustang has better fuel efficiency than the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro.

The 2018 Ford Mustang also boasts an impressive 10-speed automatic transmission. According to Dr. Stefan Pischinger, CEO of FEV GmbH, “Five to seven gears would be sufficient, if fuel efficiency was the primary goal, whereas ten gears could be more suitable for high-performance vehicle applications, since they would enable downspeeding from high speeds.” [3]

While cargo space isn’t usually sought after in sports car, the 2018 Ford Mustang has 13.5 cubic feet of trunk space (11.4 cubic feet in convertibles), which is more than leading brands [4]. If you’re looking to stuff any items in the trunk of your 2018 Chevy Camaro, you’ll only have 9.1 cubic feet of trunk space in the coupe (7.3 cubic feet in convertibles).

Here’s a quick snapshot of what to expect from the 2018 Ford Mustang and 2018 Chevrolet Camaro:
