2018 Ford Mustang vs 2018 Chevy Camaro
The new Ford Mustang and new Chevy Camaro have been battling for sports coupe supremacy for as long as they’ve been around. If you’re wondering which model is winning that battle, we’ll just tell you this – the Ford Mustang is the best-selling sports coupe in the entire world. But in case you want more proof, we’ll show you just how dominant the new Mustang is with this 2018 Ford Mustang versus 2018 Chevy Camaro head-to-head model comparison.
The 2018 Ford Mustang is so dominant thanks in part to some changes made to its engine lineup. The 3.7-liter V6 engine that was standard on the 2017 Ford Mustang is no more, having been replaced by the newly standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4 engine. What this means for you is that you’re now getting more power, better fuel efficiency, smoother handling and a more enjoyable ride for less money than before. That also means you’re paying less to upgrade your engine should you choose to move up a level and get the new Mustang’s available 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine. So, let’s get right down to it and see how these new engine offerings compare to those of the new Chevy Camaro.
