Well, now that gas is back down the $2 range thanks to a broken economy I haven't been taking into consideration fuel mileage for quite some time. Added, both the Mustang and Camaro are sports cars which are notorious for getting bad gas mileage...If people were concerned with gas mileage when looking at a car they'd turn to the econo-cars Focus or Cavalier. I think when it boils down all that matters with these cars are power and looks.
.....Which the Mustang obviously wins

Are you kidding me? Ford won't have anything to even compete with Chevy in 2010. We will all just have to wait for the new 5.0. Personally, I think the redesign of the Mustang looks horrible.

...no faith. C'mon people, this is FORD we're talkin' about. Ofcourse the camaro is going to outrun the Mustang. Chevy has to wait until they KNOW something will sell, ie The Mustang. It's been Ford's turn for the past five years, the Camaro BETTER be able to smoke the mustang. Just wait till Ford's turn again...

I don't know about you, but I don't have enough money to drop into a new stang once the 5.0 comes out. And it's a damn shame that the only way I could keep up with the 6 cylinder is full bolt ons or forced induction.

When the 2010 Camaros hit the streets, your car will be 9 years older than them. What do you expect?

Agreed. You have to pay to play.

I'm not gonna get into the whole 2010 Mustang vs 2010 Camaro, because we both know who's gonna own that battle performancewise. Doesn't mean Ford won't continue to sell Mustangs fairly well, which I'm sure they will. If the rumors of the 4V 5.0 GT turn out to be true for 2011, then we can start the debate. Right now, there isn't much to debate unless you want to talk about styling or interior ergonomics. JMO.

And FWIW, the ecoboost model.....should it see the light of day, might just make a bigger impact on this segment than either a 5.0 GT or the new SS.

Without looking at Performance or Styling or anything like that, will Ford stick to what they've been doing for so many years now? Ford has always made a muscle car for the average person. You've never needed to be rich to be able to buy a Mustang GT. That's what the original Mustangs were all about. Getting a Muscle car for the every day American. As long as they stick to that game plan then it's Ford for me. My mom has a 2002 SS Camaro and everything that has ever needed to be changed is rediculous in price. Not only is the Camaro more expensive then the Mustang but the maintenance is through the roof. JMO.

Yeah but they are FI, it's a completely different ballgame. Just the thought of not being able to hang with a naturally aspirated 6 cylinder irks me.

Got news for ya, there's been a number of NA sixxer cars that could do that long before this Camaro hits the market.

I believe you guys are missing the point of this thread. They are comparing the V6 camaro with the mustang gt. Granted the mustang should be a few grand more than the camaro and get worse gas mileage, but it will have more standard equipment, be much quicker (almost a full second to 60) and look a lot better. And if you qualify for the ford discount like I do, they should be very comparable in price. But if you want to compare the gt to the ss, of course the mustang is going to be slower, but I think it will be closer than you may think with the ss weighing close to 500 pounds more. A cat-back and good tune should narrow the gap quite a bit by my calculations. Not to mention the ss costs several thousand more than the stang and should get worse mileage, esp. in the city.

Exactly. If my '83 was still rocking stock power I would be getting my *** handed to me by some N/A 4 bangers. That's what happens when your car gets old.


lcdt94, sounds like you are blaming Ford for other car companies making fast N/A 6 cylinders. It's not Fords responsibility for their product to remain competitive almost a decade after it came out. You only get that luxury if you drive an Ellis Juan.

i agree, i mean look at a fox 5.0 and the recent mustang v6. They have comparible hp but due to tuning and weight differences, the 5.0 smokes it. Even with my 99 gt, i beat 06 and up hemis with at least 100 hp advantage over my stang. Though, the weight difference saves my gt. Obviously camaros will always have the performance edge which is what chevy prides itself in, but ford doesn't pride itself as being the fastest just the cheapest. Personally, I'd rather buy a used Z06 than buy a brand new camaro ss. I think the z06 is sexier and damn sure faster and an 06 z06 is about the price of a 2010 ss.

The 2010 Camaro can have as much power as it wants, the interior will still be crap. I had the chance to sit inside one at the Detroit Auto Show. The interior is freakin' hideous!!! It looks like it belongs in an alien spaceship. I can't see it being very functional at all.

The 2010 Mustang's interior, on the other hand, is beautiful. Very subdued. Old school styling cues, yet modern. Quality materials. And to think, I was watching a Cars.com comparsion video and they actually gave the win to the Camaro in the interior dept.

Eh, I believe torque and curb weight are going to play a role in this.

Hey guys,

Mustangs have proven that over time, they are a viable product. Sure, the Mustang II years were pretty bad, but since 1979, Ford has improved the pony car to what we have today and they have reaped the benefits in terms of sales (OK, sales are down now, but so are everybody elses). The 2010 Camaro will be a re-birth of sorts, but you have to look at the market conditions to see if they will survive. Gas is cheap now, but I'm sure that this lull will be short lived. Add the uncertain economy to this and you have a recipe for... well confusion. Will the Feds continue to allow Chevy to build environmentally unfriendly V8's with their bailout money? Will the Camaro sell? Will they out-sell the Mustang? History is on our side.
