In a perfect world, comparing the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro and the 2015 Ford Mustang would involve taking both to a track and pushing them to the limit. But it’s a lot easier to simply compare the specs for both models and identify the one that offers more of what you’re looking for. Find out how they stack up head to head, and we think you’ll conclude that the new Camaro is the better muscle car. When you want to take a test drive, head from Cincinnati to Tom Gill Chevy in Florence.

If you’re considering either of these models you obviously care about speed, horsepower, and torque. The Camaro offers more of all three.

  • 2015 Camaro Specs: The base engine is a 3.6L V6 that puts out 323 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. Two high-performance trims are also available. The ZL1 has a 6.2L V8 that puts out 580 hp and 556 lb-ft of torque while reaching 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. The Z/28 has a 7.0L V8 that puts out 505 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque while reaching 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

Safety

Getting into an accident isn’t the only hazard of the roadway. The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro does a better job of protecting you against all possible threats thanks to one safety feature that the Mustang doesn’t have: OnStar. This advanced telematics system can connect you with emergency responders and roadside assistance providers, unlock your doors when your keys are inside, and help you track the car down if it ever gets stolen.

Features

Both of these cars are impressively equipped, but when you take a close look at the features list at each trim level, the new Camaro simply offers more.

  • Base Trims: The Camaro comes standard with daytime running lamps, satellite radio, and the OnStar system with both safety features and a 4G LTE internet connection. None of these are available on the comparable Mustang.
  • Touchscreen Infotainment System: At various trim levels, both cars come with a touchscreen infotainment system. The Chevy MyLink system has been praised for its rich menu of apps and customization options. Conversely, the MyFord Touch system has been criticized for being confusing to use and distracting to drivers.
