The mustang is also quite a bit less expensive. Could argue that you can roll that savings into a better brake upgrade. But when you start talking about what you "could" do with upgraded this or that it moots the point of the true stock head to head. I've watched a few of these reviews and (spoiler alert) the 2013 GT500 showed similar against the 2012 ZL1 Camaro. Even with tons more power the brakes still let it down. I've never been a Mustang guy (although I have owned one at one time) but I really wish they would have put better brakes and ditched the solid rear axle on the Mustang sooner than they did. I can't vouch for the GT500 from an owner's prospective but my 2013 ZL1 is a great daily. I traded up from a 2012 SS and everything I liked about the SS Chevy just turned up the volume on in the ZL1. And added a touch of refinement and technology on top. An interesting observation though, is that the SS felt a little snappier out of the initial roll into the throttle. Probably because it doesn't have to spin up that supercharger. I still think the SS is a better value than the ZL1 for most people though having owned both. My own opinions. Your mileage may vary,

Just like I though, a Chevy commercial.

Camaros have always handled better than mustangs. My 91 z28 handled a lot better than my 01 gt. My 01 gt is all over the road when you hit bumps because of the solid rear axle.

I know one thing, the Mustang has the style points.

That's still sad tho 2 sec difference between a n/a motor and a supercharged engine is pathetic

Consider the zl1's power, active magnetic suspension, huge breaks VS the modest n/a 5.0 with factory suspension and brake setup being only 2 seconds behind is outstanding! That tells me with some suspension and brake tweaks it'd be neck and neck even with the power handicap...

I'm thinking the ZL1 is going to beat out the Mustang.

Stop arguing we know the Toyota Prius is the best

Great video! I like the Mustang more, though not this one. More so the 2015 to 2018. But the 2018 Camero is great too! I just prefer the lower waistline of the Mustang, the more angular front end, and the lower front hood.

For the price difference you can supercharge the mustang and upgrade the brakes

An important message for those who wish to buy a new car from GM !!!!!!!!!!......... I bought a new car from GM and unfortunately I found that the car has a lot of mechanical problems, in addition, I also found that the service-garages do not know how to deal with faults and cause a lot of damage, and unfortunately, I find that GM's customer service does not relate to customers, Think better before you buy a car from Gm .

Uhhhhh boss shelby I think is more apples to apples
cool gus
I think that it was not unfair, mustang chose not to supercharge the boss 302, camaro did, it is a battle of who can make the better car
