    the camaro is only 2 inches longer and wider and is actually and the mustang is actually an inch taller, considering how big the camaro looks i thought the differences would be more

    So the Camaro rides better and has torque and the Mustang handles better.

    I'll take the Mustang.

    2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS 2011 Ford Mustang GT
    0-60 mph acceleration, sec. 4.8 5.1
    Quarter-mile acceleration, sec. 13.1 13.3
    Quarter-mile speed, mph 110.4 107.3

    that mustang is really down on power.

    I'm really glad to see that they're really close, and they're both quality cars. I really like this rivalry.

    BTW, I'd go with the Camaro... not sure what color though.

    Edmunds is considered the Wal-Mart of magazines, a real piece of shit publication.

    ALl other magazines have the Mustang winning everything, except 0-60 time and much faster than what is posted here.

    GM ads run rampant on Edmunds which explains this article. In fact, Trishield works for Edmunds and probably wrote this.

    If they say the camaro handles better than the mustang, either they're idiots, or all the people comparing the mustang to the m3 need to fuck off

    more the earlier.

    a m3 would still outperform the mustang.
