I am nuetral as far as brands, for the most part, but where did you hear this? Let's take a look at some numbers shall we?
Camaro LS v6 = 300 hp and 272 torque - Current Mustang GT = 300 hp 320 torque
50 lb of torque difference. Camarao v6 = 3700 lbs (ss = 3900 lbs) Mustang GT 3500 lbs
All these numbers are not exact, but fairly close. You are looking at about 50 lb more torque and 200 lbs less in the Mustang.
Once again, you see these times where?
It appears to me things have not changed. The v6 Camaro will be a tad faster than a v6 Mustang, but for $3 - 5k more. There is no mid level v8 at the moment, so the SS will compete with the GT500.
I was hoping the GM would want to get away from the old formula that killed the Camaro in the first place. It appears they are going down the beaten path. Hopefully I am wrong. :P
