Ford and Chevy have been battling each other in the Pony Car wars for decades now. With the all new 2015 Mustang being unveiled and packing some serious improvements, Motor Trend decided to pit the new Stang against the 2015 Camaro SS to see which of the cars comes out on top. The new mustang gained a bit of weight, putting the two cars very equal in performance, there is only a 72-pound difference in weight between the two this generation.
Both reached 60mph in 4.4 seconds with the Mustang finishing the quarter mile a bit faster. The Camaro outperformed the Stang in 60-0 braking and with higher lateral g on the figure eight track. One of the editors chose the Camaro as the more fun to drive car.
Motor Trend has a pro racer on staff to flog cars on the track named Randy Probst and he climbed behind the wheel of the two cars to see which is a better track car. You can watch the head-to-head video at the source below. It’s worth noting that both of the cars had the equivalent factory performance packages equipped.
