BAY CITY, Mich. – Woah! Shots fired as the Camaro gears up for battle against the Mustang. The 2016 Camaro isn’t even going to be revealed until May 16th on Belle Isle, but that doesn’t stop the back and forth between Ford and Chevy in regards to the Camaro vs. the Mustang. Everyone in the automobile community is eager to see what the next-gen Camaro brings to the table, and how it stacks up against its newly revised rival, the Ford Mustang.
Mark Reuss, GM’s President, stated to Fox News; “I’m very confident. Very confident,” in regards to how the new Camaro will compete with the new Mustang. Reuss also explained that he had driven both cars back to back the week prior, and the enhancements left him quite content that Chevy is well equipped in the pony car wars. Camaro gears up for the battle against the Mustang, and from what we know now the latest Camaro switched from a full-sized Holden developed Zeta platform to the Alpha platform that the Cadillac CTS and ATS ride on. GM has also opted to infuse more aluminum into the next-gen Camaro, resulting in the new model being 200 pounds lighter.
The all-new 2016 Camaro is expected to bring in a 6.2 liter V8, the same engine that powers the Corvette Stingray. The Camaro will hit with 460 horsepower while, the current Mustang’s 5.0-liter V-8 puts out 435 horsepower. It will definitely be the battle of American muscle once the new Camaro comes out, and we CANNOT wait to see it!
