Chevrolet first decided to try its hand at muscle cars in with the formidable Camaro. In , the Camaro comes in different personalities, from the basic LS to the brutish ZL1. The Camaro comes standard with a turbocharged, L four-cylinder engine, but for power enthusiasts there’s the ZL1 that inherits a supercharged, L LT4 V8 that pumps out horsepower. Between these two extremes, there’s a horsepower V6 and a horsepower V8.

Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE vs. Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack

The never ending story: A new Mustang GT takes on the benchmark Camaro

It's like déjà vuall over again, again. Yes, dear Motor Trend readers, it's that special time of year when we trot out the latest pony cars from Detroit and figure out which one is best. For now. Because yes, we'll do it again. Soon, too.

We've been doing this particular head-to-head challenge for 50 years, and you loyal readers have never felt compelled to tell us to stop. The occasion for this particular comparison test is Ford's launch of the bigly refreshed Mustang. For the purposes of this story, we got our hands on the GT Performance Pack 1. Why not the recently announced P-Pack 2? Because Ford isn't releasing it until May. Representing Chevrolet's interests is the Camaro SS 1LE, unchanged since Both our tested cars came with a six-speed manual transmission, though the new Mustang is available with a speed automatic.

Let's first break down the carryover Camaro SS. The Chevy comes packing a stout liter pushrod V-8 that pumps out horsepower and lb-ft of torque. 1LE is Camaro code for a track-oriented option pack. All 1LE Camaros come with a black hood, black mirrors, blacked-out other bits, and a manual transmission. The SS 1LE gets Magnetic Ride Control, GM's trick eLSD rearend and five levels of Performance Traction Management (aka PTM), Brembo brakes, and sticky Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3 tires. It also has a dual-mode exhaust and coolers for oil, the differential, and the transmission. Our car came with the optional Recaro seats and Performance Data Recorder, a nifty built-in camera system to help you work on your lap times. All in, this red Chevy will set you back $46,, an $8, bump over the Camaro SS' base price of $37,

For the first time in history, a production Mustang displaces more than 5, cubic centimeters. The old Coyote V-8 displaced 4, cubes. Ford Performance changed out the cylinder liners, using the same plasma transferred wire arc process as the GT supercar. As such, the bore is now 93mm (up nearly a millimeter), and total displacement is 5,cc. Because the bore is larger, the valves can be (and are) larger. The cylinder heads are new, as are the camshafts, the crankshaft, and the rod bearings. This new engine also revs rpm higher to 7, rpm. The Coyote engine provides both port and direct injection, and because of the cooling effect of DI, the compression ratio is now a relatively lofty As you've probably guessed by now, power is up, going from to horsepower (5 hp more than Chevy). Torque also is up by 20 lb-ft to lb-ft (though 35 less than Chevy). The six-speed manual sports new gears, optimized for the engine's healthier output.

The Mustang also gets updated and—according to my Instagram followers—polarizing new sheetmetal. Ford's decision to take the Mustang global means that the car is subject to Europe's restrictive pedestrian safety regulations, which often have an adverse effect on design. That's the why the headlights are so tiny while the hood is so bulbous.

The coolest change to me is the big inch instrument panel. It's bright and readable, has different displays for different modes (the Track screen, specifically the way Ford made the tachometer look, is particularly good), and works well with the Mustang's pleasant innards. Sadly, like too many Ford screens these days, there's too much information displayed and/or something always prompting you to hit "OK."

Ticking the box for Performance Pack 1 adds such features as a big wing; black aluminum wheels; Michelin PS4 tires; Brembo brakes; a dual-mode exhaust; a strut tower brace; a K-brace; stiffer front springs; a thicker rear anti-roll bar; a larger radiator; a Torsen limited-slip differential; retuned electric steering assist, stability control, and ABS; and "unique chassis tuning." To even up things as much as possible, our test car had optional magnetic dampers, MagneRide in Ford-speak. Sadly, we asked for but didn't get the available Recaro sport seats. Total price: $49,, a $9, jump over the GT's base price. Does the Mustang feel $3, more special than the Camaro? No. However, the Ford's interior does look and feel about $2K nicer.

Before we get to the numbers, we should talk about each car's inherent pony car credentials. Meaning that yes, when you're sitting at the bar arguing with the jerk who owns the car you don't, mph is hella important. International bureau chief Angus MacKenzie calls that stuff "pub ammo." However, out on the street, numbers really don't matter all that much.

What does matter is what Jethro Bovingdon refers to as "cowboy science." Roughly speaking, cowboy science means noise, burnouts, and nonoptimized drag racing. As far as which car's V-8 barks better, the win goes to the Mustang. Both ponies have two-mode exhausts and eight pistons churning away on a crankshaft, but the higher-revving Ford makes much sweeter music. This is a notable improvement over the previous Mustang, which—let's be frank—didn't sound so hot. The Camaro's exhaust note isn't bad, but it's not noteworthy (pun intended). The part that upsets me is that in some more than tangential way, the Chevy's LT1 is related to the V-8 in the C7.R Corvettes. I've heard them run at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and they are the best-sounding machines at the race. Imagine if rolling thunder got angry. So, Chevy tuners, a little more like that, please.

As for burnouts, the orange Ford literally, figuratively, and ever other way smoked the Chevy. In a way, this is actually good news for the 1LE. Here's why: The Camaro can do about one, maybe two decent burnouts, and then the Goodyears get hot to the point where they "grip up," to steal a term from Randy Pobst. It's enough grip that lb-ft of twisting force has trouble breaking 'em loose. This is slightly surprising.

I used to tell anyone who would listen to me that the best production burnout machine on earth was either the Jaguar F-Type R (it was rear-drive for one year only—future classic!) or any Hellcat. Then I drove a Camaro ZL1 and melted six sets of rear tires. Not joking.

In my fairly elaborate burnout experience, no other car comes close to the lb-ft of torque and fury of the LT4 big dog Camaro. Why do I mention this? The SS 1LE comes on the same tires as the ZL1. (The ZL1 1LE gets even stickier R compound meats.) It turns out the ZL1's additional lb-ft  of supercharged torque are quite necessary.

As for the Mustang GT, well, it represents one more reason to buy Michelin stock. The Ford is content to just sit and roast 'em. I should mention that although both cars come with line lock (a feature that disables the rear brakes to allow for easier burnouts), I'm both impatient and not too bright. I couldn't get line lock to work, and after two attempts I stopped trying.

That brings us to "nonoptimized drag racing," a term I made up. Basically it means leaving things such as GPS tracking gear and standardized measurements (like, say, distance) out of the equation and just seeing which car goes faster. To figure this out, Jethro and I headed out to El Mirage, a dry lakebed near Edwards Air Force Base. It was instrumental in the birth of both hot rodding and drag racing.

To the best of our cowboy science abilities, we marked off what probably was pretty close to a mile and went for it. The Mustang repeatedly beat the Camaro, showing mph on its speedo to the Chevy's mph. The Ford was about four car lengths ahead each time, too. And by "each time," I mean we did this about 30 times in a row. (Check out the video at Motor Trend OnDemand)

Why did the Ford win? Well, for one thing, the Mustang's V-8 just loves to rev out. The faster it spins, the more power it spits out. For another, and we'll explore this more in a second, we have the distinct feeling that the new Coyote is putting out more than ponies. For its part, the Camaro sits on wider, slicker rear tires, and on compacted dirt, that just doesn't have the same traction as the Mustang.

Then came time to leave cowboy science behind and get to actual science, as provided by our testing team. First of all, the Ford outporks the Chevy, 3, pounds versus 3, The two cars have identical 54/46 weight distribution. The 1LE wins the sprint, doing so in seconds versus the Mustang GT's seconds. By the end of the quarter mile, the Camaro is still in the lead but not by much: seconds at mph for the Chevy versus the Mustang's seconds at mph. Road test editor Chris Walton, our straight-line guru, told me that were we to lengthen the race, the Ford would win because at that point the Chevy's torque and traction advantage is gone, and high-reving DOHC horsepower takes over.

Like stated previously, we feel Ford is sandbagging the actual output. Why? My best guess is to protect the hp GT, which is still on sale. But who knows? On to braking, and here the Chevy wastes the Ford. The 1LE's six-piston binders haul it to a dead stop from 60 mph in 93 feet. That's world class. The GT, which also has six-piston calipers, needs feet. Keep in mind that both cars are on similar performance rubber, and both have Brembos. Yes, the Ford weighs more but not that much more. The Camaro's brakes are just better.

As is the 1LE's handling. Around our figure-eight track, the Mustang managed a second lap. That's a fantastic time, especially because the Mustang GT needed seconds, and the BMW M4 takes seconds. So that's good company. But by comparison, the Nissan GT-R NISMO, Porsche GT3, and Porsche Turbo S all dance the figure eight in a significantly quicker seconds. I mention this because so does the Camaro. I'm still having a hard time processing that number, but it is true. The workaday Chevy runs even with the world's elite performance cars in a true handling test.

For the record, the quickest time we've ever seen around the figure eight is seconds, put down by both the Porsche Spyder and the Lamborghini Huracán Performante. Meaning the Camaro 1LE is within spitting distance. When I asked our handling guru Kim Reynolds what he thought about the two cars after lapping them, he looked first to the Camaro then disparagingly glanced at the Mustang and said, "There's about 4, years of evolution separating the two."

Ouch. But that's the feeling both Jethro and I got out on the road. The SS 1LE—which by the way placed fourth in our Best Driver's Car competition—is an ideal back road warrior. Everything it does is sweet, from turn-in to midcorner to post-apex to whatever—the Chevy never puts a foot wrong, never misbehaves, and most certainly never understeers. But the grip is so high that even though the chassis is keen to, the car never oversteers—even with everything turned off.

The Ford? Look, ever since the Mustang went with an independent rearend, the GTs haven't been set up properly. The lighter EcoBoost cars are better, and the Shelby GTR handles about as well as anything on the road. But the normal V-8s? Not great. I had high hopes the combination of the refresh, the new Performance Pack goodies, and MagneRide would fix things. Nope. The car rolls over on itself and seems to not only understeer but also to try and oversteer at the same time. Like the front and back aren't actually connected. Jethro kept pointing out that although the Ford felt bad going into a corner, once you were actually in a turn it was pretty much OK. "There's a good car somewhere under there," he said. I concur.

Then came the track. We took the two American icons out to Streets of Willow. Here's the good news for Ford fans. The fastback GT laid down a lap. That's second off the aforementioned M4 (), just quicker than a Lexus RC F (), and nearly three tenths of a second better than a Mustang GT Performance Pack (). The bad news? The Camaro SS 1LE laid down a lap, seconds quicker. In other words, these two cars wouldn't be allowed to race together. Different class doesn't cover it. The list of cars the Camaro went faster than should embarrass some OEMs: Porsche Cayman GT4, Audi R8 V10 Plus, Ferrari Italia. I mean, come on!

To put it bluntly, the Camaro is in another league, with legitimate supercars. A GT-R NISMO held the Streets record——meaning the gulf between the quickest car ever lapped at the track and the Chevy ( seconds) was less than half the gulf between our two competitors ( seconds). But then we got bored at lunch and Randy ran a lap in a Lamborghini Huracán Performonte. Result: new champ, at —making the Camaro the sixth-fastest car around Streets. Yet the Chevy still is less than 2 seconds off the pace of a hypercar costing six times as much. Dang.

The winner of this round? The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE. In my mind, it's not close. Chevy has done the near impossible, transcended the genre, and turned a once provincial pony car into an honest to goodness world-class sports car. This $46, miracle punches so far above its weight that I'm in danger of saying weird things that could easily be taken out of context. Such as, if I were an engineer at BMW or even Porsche, I'd be clearing off my drawing boards.

Where does that leave the Mustang? Well, if you don't care about measurable performance and are instead into the "cowboy science" side of things, you have your winner. However (and here's the part I hate writing), in the ways that actually matter to car guys, the Mustang got its butt handed to it. For less money, Chevy stone-cold out-engineered Ford. And this is what that galls me. Not only should Ford have done a better job, but I also know they can do a better job. The Shelby GTR—a car that's every inch as awesome and breathtaking as a Porsche GT3—proves Ford has the knowledge to build a better car. Now it remains to be seen how much the forthcoming Performance Pack 2 closes the handling gap with that GT R and this Camaro SS 1LE. You can probably expect another Camaro/Mustang face-off for the answer.

PredecessorChevrolet Camaro (fifth generation)

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is an American pony car.[7][8] Produced by automobile manufacturer Chevrolet, it was first introduced to the public on May 16, Sales started in for the model year. The Camaro now utilizes the GM Alpha platform shared with the Cadillac ATS and CTS[9] and features MacPherson struts in front, rather than the former multi-link setup. General Motors claims that 70 percent of architectural components in the new Camaro are unique to the car.[1]

The sixth generation of Camaro saw production return to the United States as the fourth and fifth-generation models had been assembled in Canada.[10][11]

Like its predecessor, the sixth generation of the Camaro is available in coupé and convertible bodystyles. Compared to the previous generation, it is &#;in (58&#;mm) shorter, &#;in (20&#;mm) narrower and &#;in (28&#;mm) shorter in height. With similar equipment and engine, it is also more than &#;lb (91&#;kg) lighter.

Trim levels and special editions[edit]

Trim levels introduced at launch were LT (1LT, 2LT) and SS (1SS, 2SS). Standard equipment on all trims includes automatic air conditioning, cruise control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, satellite radio, parking assist, and seven airbags.

Chevrolet added a base LS (1LS) trim level for the Camaro. Trim level content for the LS is identical to that of the base 1LT trim, with the exception that the &#;L turbocharged inline-4 engine and 6-speed manual transmission would be the only available powertrain options for the LS trim. The LS trim was initially introduced in coupé form, followed later by an LS convertible. The 1LT trim received the 8-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles as standard equipment for [12]

For China, the car was introduced on August 31, and sold under the RS trim with the 2&#;L turbocharged LTG four-cylinder engine and 8-speed automatic gearbox available for models onwards as standard.[13]

For the model year, the 1LE Performance Packages returned, tailored for the V6 and V8 powered six-speed manual-equipped coupé models respectively. Both of 1LE packages offered share a satin black hood wrap, front splitter, and a three-piece rear spoiler. The V6 1LE package adds FE3 suspension from the Camaro SS, inch forged wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 /40R20 front tires and /35R20 rear tires, Brembo 4-piston front brake calipers, mechanical limited-slip differential with a ratio, track-cooling package, suede steering wheel, short-throw shifter, dual-mode exhaust, Camaro SS fuel system to accommodate higher-load cornering, and a high flow front grille. The SS 1LE package adds the Magnetic Ride Control FE4 suspension derived from the ZL1, electronic limited-slip differential with ratio, inch forged wheels with Goodyear Supercar 3 /30R20 front tires and /30R20 rear tires, Brembo six-piston front brake calipers with two-piece inch rotors, track-cooling package, Recaro front seats with suede and leather upholstery, suede steering wheel and short-throw shifter, dual-mode exhaust, and a color heads-up display.[14]

Starting in , the 1LE Package was also available with the four cylinder turbo. It adds similar equipment to the V6 1LE, including the FE3 suspension, Brembo brakes, 20" forged wheels with /40 and /35 Eagle F1 tires, track cooling, and mechanical limited slip differential. The visual changes are also the same as the V6 1LE's. Car and Driver testing showed the I4 1LE was only seconds slower around VIR than the V6.[15]

Hot Wheels Special Edition

Camaro Hot Wheels Special Edition

At the SEMA Show in October , Chevrolet introduced the Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Special Edition, designed to commemorate both the 50th Anniversary of Hot Wheels die-cast toy vehicles, as well as all Hot Wheels diecast Chevrolet Camaro models, with inspiration coming from an actual Hot Wheels toy car. Available on 2LT and 2SS models in both coupe and convertible body styles, the Hot Wheels Special Edition includes a unique Crush Orange exterior paint, inch Graphite-finished machined-face aluminum-alloy wheels (with summer-only tires on SS/2SS models), a Satin Graphite exterior decal package with hood and rear trunk lid stripes and silver accents, Satin Graphite exterior accents, a "Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary" front fender emblem, a unique front grille with Galvano chrome inserts, orange-painted front and rear brake calipers (front only for LT/2LT), a black Chevrolet bowtie emblem, a Jet Black leather-trimmed interior with orange color accent stitching (including stitching on the dashboard, door panels, and suede-wrapped steering wheel), illuminated front door sill plates with the 'Hot Wheels' insignia, premium carpeted floor mats with orange-colored stitching and "Ghost Stripes", and orange knee bolsters and seat belts.[17]

Redline Edition For the model year, Chevrolet introduced the Chevrolet Camaro Redline Edition which joins the lineup of Chevrolet Redline Edition models already on sale at dealerships nationwide. The Redline Edition package included inch black aluminum-alloy wheels with red accent stripes (including summer-only tires), black-painted side mirrors, a black lower front grille insert with red accent stripes, black bowtie emblems, Gloss Black front fender accent hash marks with red accents, a blackout rear tail lamp panel, darkened tail lamps, premium carpeted floor mats with red accents, and Gloss Black "Camaro" emblems on each front fender with red outlining.[18]


The SS model is equipped with a L LT1 V8 engine offered both as a 6-speed manual and an 8-speed automatic. Chevrolet reports the SS capable of horsepower and lb.-ft. of torque, performing MPH in seconds.[19] This model comes in two different trims, the 1SS and 2SS, which are mainly differentiated by their interior features. While the 1SS packs the same power, it lacks the leather heated/ventilated seats of the 2SS. The 2SS includes some other features left out in the 1SS like interior spectrum lighting, heated steering wheel, blind-spot monitoring, Bose audio, and wireless charging. Both trim levels allow the addition of the available 1LE "track package," which adds suede Recaro seats and upgraded performance features detailed elsewhere in this article. In and subsequent years the new 10L80 10 speed automatic transmission was offered in the SS trim level.


The ZL1 model, which is a high-performance variant of the Camaro SS, was introduced in It features a lower grille opening for improved cooling, a new front splitter, and a carbon hood insert which removes hot air from the engine compartment. It also features wider front fenders to accommodate wider tires for improved handling, unique rockers, and Magnetic Ride suspension.

Transmission choices are a rev matching six-speed manual or a newly developed speed automatic.[2] The speed 10L90 transmission was developed in collaboration with Ford. General Motors manufactures its own version in its own factory in Romulus, Michigan. A more track-focused version known as the ZL1 1LE features Multimatic spool-valve shocks (similar to the previous generation of the Camaro Z28), a new front splitter, dive planes and a rear wing, and wide Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires. Weight was also reduced by 60&#;lb (27&#;kg) as compared to a standard ZL1.[20]

Performance figures include a 0 to 60&#;mph (97&#;km/h) acceleration time of seconds, a 1/4 mile time of seconds at &#;mph (&#;km/h). The ZL1's official top speed is &#;mph (&#;km/h).[21]

The ZL1, along with the SS, were banned for sale in California and Washington due to their brake pads containing toxic metals and asbestos that were banned in California in and brake pads containing more than 5% of copper will be prohibited starting in January GM plans to reintroduce the ZL1 and SS in the two states for the model year with new brakes that meet state regulations.[22][23][24]

Engines and transmissions[edit]

The sixth generation of the Chevrolet Camaro is available with three engine options:

  • The liter LTG Ecotecturbocharged straight-four, which has a power output of &#;hp (&#;kW) at 5, rpm and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque at 3, rpm and is the first four-cylinder in a Camaro since the 3rd generation model. It is available on 1LS, 1LT and 2LT trims.
  • The liter LGX V6 engine, having a power output of &#;hp (&#;kW) at 6, rpm and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque at 5, rpm.
  • The liter LT1 V8 engine, which is shared with the Corvette C7 and has a power output of &#;hp (&#;kW)[25] at 6, rpm and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque at 4, rpm.

Engines installed on high-performance models include:

  • The liter superchargedLT4 V8, which is shared with the Corvette Z06 and has an output of &#;hp (&#;kW) at 6, RPM and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque at 3, rpm.

All engines were initially available with a 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic transmissions, except for the ZL1 models, which use a speed automatic in addition to a standard 6-speed manual. The 8-speed was replaced by the speed automatic in the SS and V6 models.

European Union's new Euro 6d-Temp automotive emission regulations have ended the European sale of Camaro on 31 August [26] The litre V8 engine fitted to the export version of Camaro could not be modified further to meet the new emission regulations.

HSV Chevrolet Camaro (Australia)[edit]

General Motors Holden's performance division, Holden Special Vehicles, was engaged in the import and conversion of the Camaro to right-hand-drive and Australian Design Rules, from the second half of [27] Unlike Holden's previous American import, the Chevrolet badge remained on the converted Camaro. The Holden Suburban was also originally built as RHD, rather than being converted after arriving in Australia.

HSV imported and converted the European Camaro 2SS and ZL1. The manual gearbox, along with the ZL1 model, were made available in [28] Imports stopped in early following limited sales,[29] with the possibility remaining of resuming them in the future under the new GMSV brand.[30]


In fall (for the model year), the sixth-generation of the Camaro received a mid-cycle redesign, along with the majority of the Chevrolet car lineup (including the Spark, Cruze and Malibu), in which the front end styling was universally panned. Changes for the model year also included a new third-generation MyLink infotainment system, revised exterior, and interior styling, new alloy wheel designs, the addition of the 1LE Performance Package for the base &#;L I4 equipped LT models (the 1LE Performance Package was previously only offered on V6-equipped LT and V8-equipped SS and ZL1 models), the addition of two new exterior colors (Riverside Blue Metallic and Satin Steel Gray Metallic), and a new performance hood for SS models. The SS also dropped the optional 8-speed automatic in favor of the speed automatic. Driver-assistance features were also improved on the model, including Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert.[31] The Chevrolet Camaro went on sale in the fall of [32]

Chevrolet also exhibited a Camaro SS at the SEMA Show in the new Shock yellow-green exterior color, which became available in early [33] It also featured a "concept" front end, which unlike the production version of the SS has a body-colored bumper and the Chevy "bow-tie" badge moved to the upper grille.[34]

For the model year, Chevrolet revised the front-end styling of the Camaro SS, the front bumper is now colored and the Chevy "bow-tie" has been moved to the upper grille. A new entry-level V8 trim called the "Camaro LT1 V8" equipped with a &#;L LT1 V8 engine rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) was added to the line-up. The V6 model is now equipped with a speed automatic transmission as an option and replaces the previous 8-speed transmission. A new exterior color option called the "Rally Green" was added. The Camaro went on sale in fall [35]

Pratt & Miller developed the Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R for GT4 international racing in While based on the Camaro ZL1, regulations preventing the use of superchargers meant the naturally-aspirated LT1 liter V8 from the Camaro SS instead of the ZL1's LT4 supercharged V8 was used in the racing car featuring direct fuel injection, a carbon fiber intake, a custom camshaft, a Motec data acquisition system and a Bosch MS6 ECU. The engine has a power output up to &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS). Other changes include the Xtrac paddle-shift operated 6-speed sequential transmission, an Xtrac Salisbury type differential, six-piston Brembo front brake calipers with four-piston rear calipers, custom adjustable front and rear antiroll bars, and two-way adjustable Öhlins TTX front struts and TTX rear dampers.
