2019 Ford Mustang vs 2019 Chevrolet Camaro

Proudly Serving Charlotte, NC

Sports cars have been extremely popular for decades because they offer a sleek exterior and a power engine that can make you feel like a race car driver. You simply can't find another vehicle category that offers the same level of style and performance as the sports car. When it comes to sports cars, there are two clear leaders. The 2019 Ford Mustang and 2019 Chevrolet Camaro are easily the two best options in this crowded vehicle category, but the new Mustang will be the better choice for most people because it tops the new Camaro in the key feature categories.

Performance

These vehicles are so popular because they provide the opportunity to go fast, so there is absolutely no reason to buy a sports car if it does not have a powerful engine. Luckily, you will not have to worry about that with either of these two great sports cars. While you will be happy with the power provided by the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro, the 2019 Ford Mustang has a slightly stronger engine. The 2.3-liter I-4 engine in the new Mustang will deliver 310 horsepower and 350 foot-pounds of torque. The 2.0-liter I-4 engine in the 2019 Camaro can only deliver 275 horsepower and 295 foot-pounds of torque.

Fuel Efficiency

You should not have to worry about poor fuel efficiency just because you want to drive a powerful car. You may think that the 2019 Ford Mustang will get worse gas mileage than the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro because it has a stronger engine, but that is not the case. You will be able to get approximately 21 miles per gallon in the city and 32 miles per gallon on the highway when driving the new Mustang. The latest sports car from Chevrolet will get 22 miles per gallon in the city and 31 miles per gallon on the highway. Since most driving is done on the highway, the combined fuel efficiency of the 2019 Mustang is two miles per gallon better than the 2019 Camaro.

Safety

Driving a relatively small vehicle at high speeds has the potential to be dangerous, but you will not have to worry about any safety issues when behind the wheel of these two amazing sports cars. While both options are extremely safe, you will get a few extra safety features with the 2019 Ford Mustang. Parallel parking assist, in-vehicle drivers assistance, and a lane departure warning system are a few of the excellent safety features that you will only be able to get when purchasing a sports car from Ford. The 2019 Mustang has not been crash tested yet, but last year's model achieved a perfect rating in the front, side and rollover tests by the NHTSA. The Chevrolet Camaro only received perfect ratings in the side and rollover crash tests.

While it is always good to gain extra information on a potential purchase, you do not want to buy a car without seeing how it drives on the road. Stop by our dealership at any time to take the 2019 Ford Mustang out for a test drive. It will only take a few minutes for you to realize it is the ideal vehicle for your needs.
