2016 Ford Mustang vs. Its Competition

2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The arch rival to the Ford Mustang remains the Chevrolet Camaro, a model that's been boosting its popularity ever since its return to the market in 2010.

An all-new version of the Camaro is in the works for 2016, and we can hope that Chevy changes its main drawback—weird interior packaging, and an utter lack of headroom for taller drivers and passengers.

The Dodge Challenger has the same scope and reach as the domestics, with everything from V-6 to 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.

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