Ford Mustang GT and Chevrolet Camaro: if you were asked to name two American musclecars, chances are they would be the first two out of your mouth. In the current climate, there are as many reasons as you can think of for buying Ford, Chevrolet, or anything American. First, it helps an economy that pretty desperately needs it right now. Second, it could very well help your own personal economy as US cars are a pretty affordable option in this day and age.
The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro checks in at $25,118, while the latest Ford
Mustang GT ducks in under the 25k mark. The Mustang does have a thirst
for gasoline though, guzzling its way through a gallon every fifteen
miles on city streets. As yet, the word isn’t out on how much the
Camaro will get through, but there’s no reason to expect that it’ll be
any more economical.
Both the Ford Mustang GT and Chevrolet Camaro have the same engine
capability, throwing 300 bhp out from under the bonnet – you can see
how easy it is to get through the gasoline. The big difference is that
the Camaro gets that from a 3.6-liter engine, a full liter less than
the Mustang. It also has a larger fuel tank by three gallons, which
could well mean 70 miles upwards without having to stop after a Mustang
has pulled in and refueled. The bouquet and champagne will be withheld
until more details are known about the Camaro.
