And the new 2010 Camaro, especially the LS V-6 model, kicks the pony's ass up and down the block. More base power, 300hp vs 210hp and better fuel economy 29mpg hwy vs 26mpg hwy, are major advantages for Chevy. And let's not forget the IRS! I haven't driven the 2010 Mustang, but I have driven the 05 & 06 models. I also haven't driven the Camaro, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that the fully independant suspension of the Camaro will mean a much more livable and stable ride on rough roads and better handling in the twisties.
So, you're saying "Joe, give the Mustang a chance" and I'm saying that Ford needs to give the Mustang some major improvements. Tough love is love just the same
