2022 Ford Mustang vs. Its Competition

2022 Ford Mustang Coastal Limited Edition
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Mustang’s two main rivals are the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger, but it also takes on other sporty cars, even from luxury makes.

The Camaro comes closest in performance, with great steering and a buttoned down suspension, but it’s hard to see out of and has a cramped cockpit.

The Challenger is larger, more comfortable, and offers big-time power, but it isn’t as good at turning corners.

The BMW 4-Series is a luxury version of the Mustang with a better interior and much higher prices.

At a lower price point, the Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 twins appeal for sharp handling and lots of road feel with much less power.

Quick Specs
6.0
The 2022 Ford Mustang performs in any guise, but it’s hard to beat a 5.0-liter V-8 and a manual transmission.
6.0
Additional power ramps up the fun, and now buyers can opt for a 2022 Subaru BRZ that drifts or sticks to the pavement.
6.0
The 2022 Toyota GR86 tops up its power tank, but trackworthy handling still earns its top marks.
6.8
The redesigned 2021 BMW 4-Series has evolved into a technology powerhouse with wonderfully responsive powertrains, but the coupe lacks playfulness.
5.8
Wrapped in a cool pony car body, the 2021 Chevy Camaro has sports car moves.
6.0
The 2021 Dodge Challenger muscle coupe is more than a one-trick pony. It looks great while going fast, too.
