The exciting thing about the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette is it utilizes the most advanced available automotive technologies to deliver blistering performance, but still references the awesome tradition of American muscle cars. Simply put, this car can fly down the road and turns heads no matter what it’s doing or where it’s going.

The 2015 Ford Mustang claims to do the same thing, but as you will see, the Corvette leaves it in the dust. Find out how both models compare when pitted head to head, then make plans to check out the newest Corvette at Tom Gill Chevy in Florence, just a short drive from Cincinnati.

Power

If you are looking for true high-performance capabilities, expect to find more of the speed and horsepower that you crave in the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette. That base engine is a 6.2L V8 that delivers 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque that can reach 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds. If that is not enough for you, choose to upgrade to a supercharged 6.2L V8 that puts out an eye popping 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. Chevy estimates that this version reaches 60 mph in 3.0 seconds flat.

The standard engine in the Mustang is a 3.7L V6 that delivers just 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. If that understandably leaves you disappointed, you can step up to 5.0L V8 that still only puts out 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque and takes a longer 4.7 seconds to reach 60 mph.

Safety

With this kind of speed at your disposal, you want to know that your brakes can stop on a dime. The Corvette’s can, plus it comes with exclusive safety features. It takes just 93 feet for a Corvette traveling at 60 mph to reach a full stop. Plus it comes with OnStar which connects you with help on the roadway and tracks your vehicle if it gets stolen.

It takes as much as 108 feet for the Mustang to reach a full stop, and the features offered by OnStar are unavailable in any form.

Storage

The Corvette offers a surprising amount of storage space, making it a viable option as a daily driver, or as the ultimate road trip car. The 15.0 cubic feet of storage space is enough for weekend luggage or a full golf bag. In the Mustang, the 13.5 cubic feet of storage space will force you to leave something at home or cram it into the backseat.

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette is Unbeatable

It’s a fact that the latest Corvette simply delivers more of what you are looking for in a next-generation muscle car.
