The Camaro has an LT1 V-8 trimmed out at 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque mated to a 6-speed manual that drives the rears.
You know what the Mustang has: a flat-crank 5.2-liter V-8 with an 8250-rpm redline. All 526 horsepower, and 429 pound feet of torque mated to a 6-speed manual that drives the rears.
Perhaps the biggest change in the Mustang is the independent rear end. Along with a Torsen rear diff and magnetic ride control, the Mustang is planted and composed at all speeds.
The Camaro feels and is smaller, tighter than the pervious version. Borrowing components from Cadillac, including the magnetic ride control make it a sweet ride.
Despite more room on the inside, it feels much busier and more distracting.
We liked the interior of the Camaro better than the Mustang. The front had nicer materials and was cleaner. However, don't bother with the back seat.
The Mustang is bigger, longer and heavier than the Camaro, and it feels like it, too.
