2015 Chevrolet Camaro vs. Its Competition

2015 Chevrolet Camaro Green Flash Edition
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger are the only other true muscle coupes on the market today, but they each have a different flavor in comparison to the Camaro.

The Mustang offers better packaging and better fuel economy, as well as versions with 400+ and 600+ horsepower, if you want them.

However, we'd choose the Camaro ZL1 over the Shelby GT500, just for its better drive quality.

The Challenger looks best as a retro muscle car, and for this year, gets more power across its HEMI V-8s.

We haven't driven the new Challenger SRT8, but its Hellcat engine is supposedly rated at over 600 horsepower.

If you're shopping on a tighter budget or prioritize handling over speed, the Nissan 370Z feels more like a sports car than a pony car.

There's also the most affordable competitor here in the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, which is offered with an efficient, yet punch 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in its basest versions.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat rules the roost; meanwhile the entire Challenger lineup gets more retro-modern than ever—all while offering up touring comfort you won't find in the other muscle coupes.
8.4
The 2015 Ford Mustang finally makes the rear-end switch—and the SVO's back, at least in spirit.
8.0
Forget the four-cylinder: the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe now puts its best foot forward as a V-6-only coupe.
8.0
