2015 Ford Mustang vs. Its Competition

2015 Ford Mustang Apollo Edition
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Mustang's full revamp doesn't change the cars that regularly bracket it on the street and the strip.

The Chevy Camaro's its archrival, and has been waxing in popularity since its 2010 redo.

It's faster than ever, but it's packaged like an NHRA dragster and the interior's not as suave as it should be.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe drops its four-cylinder this year and is now V-6 only; it's a capable performer, but missing the decades of heritage that usually draws eyeballs to this segment.

The Dodge Challenger has the same scope and reach as the domestics, with V-6 and 707-hp Hellcat SRT editions.

It's just a little more hefty and less handling-oriented, a metric that's become a real talking point in these cars despite their checkered-flag past.

Quick Specs
8.4
The 2015 Ford Mustang finally makes the rear-end switch—and the SVO's back, at least in spirit.
8.0
The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro may be slightly polarizing to the eye, but it's hard to argue with the performance capabilities found in the ZL1 and Z/28 versions of this muscle car.
8.4
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.
8.0
Forget the four-cylinder: the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe now puts its best foot forward as a V-6-only coupe.
