Ford Mustang GT vs. Camaro SS: Race to the Finish

Rival Muscle Cars Duel, Then One Retires.

Last month marked the end of production for the last Chevy Camaro, seeing GM’s departure from the muscle car industry. But don’t shed too many tears, as YouTube star Sam CarLegion has provided a final head-to-head between the outgoing Camaro and its newer rivalry, the Ford Mustang.

While the last Camaro to depart production was the exclusive Collector’s Edition (given representation in this reportage), this battle welcomes the 2022 Camaro SS 1LE. Contending against it is a S650-geneation Mustang GT.

Although the automobiles appear to be comparable on document, this competition down the straightaway is more alluring than assumed.

2024 Ford Mustang GT vs Chevy Camaro, close but not close. Drag and Roll Race.

Under the bonnet, the Camaro SS 1LE carries a 6.2-liter V8 motor, producing 455 hp and an equivalent of 455 lb-ft in torque. In comparison, the Mustang GT packs a somewhat smaller 5.0-liter V8 motor but makes up for it with a higher 486-hp yield yet lesser 416 lb-ft of force, warranting the Blue Oval stallion slightly further ahead when it comes to crude force.

In terms of power output and heft, the two cars are in a dead heat. Equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, there is only an 8-pound disparity between them. As such, any performance discrepancies could more probably be related to the way each engine releases its energy and the ability of the drivers.

The footage features two drag races: one commencing from a moving position and the other from a stop. It is difficult to solely determine who won by figures alone. Other elements ought to be taken into account, for example, grip (let’s say, tires), yet ultimately there will be sole victor at the end of the race.

As we mourn the loss of the sixth-generation Camaro, Chevrolet has made it clear that this is not the end of the road for the iconic nameplate. “This is not the end of Camaro’s story,” they stated when the announcement was made last year – and if history is anything to go by, we won’t be waiting long for its return. After all, the Camaro was absent for eight years before it made its comeback in 2010 – so it’s likely that we won’t have to wait too much longer for an EV version of the beloved car.
