Both engines are available with a dual-mode exhaust, which features electronically controlled valves that bypass the mufflers under acceleration, delivering improved performance and greater sound levels. For another, the Mustang is a heavy car as far as track cars are concerned being roughly 3,800 lb. But more on that in a moment. The Camaro, on the other hand, had plenty of options, including, crucially, the Magnetic shocks and dual-mode performance exhaust. If you use ramps, make sure that the tires are centered on the ramps.
Here, lies the real problem. Though the massive black element is still there, the grille underneath gained a new honeycomb mesh, while the chrome frame is thicker on the sides and discontinued above. All models share a more pronounced, sculpted roof panel that improves the structural rigidity of the roof for greater refinement. After my first session, they made an impression that basically persisted for the rest of track sessions on them. So what were they like? The air vents which come in handy for climate control and the fitted digital gauges, add some much-needed style to the otherwise plain dashboard.
However, on the flip side, its outward visibility is terrible. And by no options, I mean no options - not one. Yes, over a sudden bump or with a too-strong jab of throttle the rear end will definitely skip a bit, but for the most part the car feels nothing but pinned down and lovely. Here you find leafy two-lanes, weathered hardware stores and laid-back pubs, hidden swimming holes, and some of the best—check that, the only—twisting, undulating driving roads amid hundreds of miles of otherwise pancake-flat farmland. Apple CarPlay and iPhone are trademarks of Apple Inc. Body motions—roll, pitch, and squat—are all tightly controlled. I had my concerns, though.
I am a Mustang guy. And the intake manifold was engineered to provide a straight-shot path for the aircharge to reach the huge 2. Rear wheel horsepower and torque figures are approximately 15-20% lower than the factory published power figures which are measured at the crankshaft on an engine dyno. Significantly, these new Camaros are also lighter than their Mustang counterparts. When a 455-horsepower engine propels a car that shed over 200 lbs.
With that said, the Mustang feels like a cathedral in comparison. You now have a rough idea - the Camaro is a little bit better than that. All these changes make the coupe more aerodynamic, a result Chevy says it obtained after 350 hours of wind tunnel testing. It fits you like a custom suit—no unnecessary sheetmetal weighing you down, your hands and feet moving easily over smartly placed controls, the car light and direct and quick as you flick the wheel and snap off the shifts. The interior still features the twin-cockpit design, but looks completely refreshed otherwise. Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and distribution.
The stiffer and more buttoned down suspension means better tire wear, stability, and performance. But don't dismiss it because you think you won't be able to see out of it. Both will take off with satisfying grunt, both will sound good, and both will have no trouble reaching any speed you demand with your right foot. I decided to take this opportunity to write my impressions of both cars. Requires the Android Auto app on Google Play and an Android compatible smartphone running Android 5.
The engine The 2017 Camaro models came with four different engines which can be used with either manual or automatic car transmissions.

The big news here is the addition of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the first four-pot in a Camaro since the third-generation model of 1982 - 1992. Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and distribution. As far as visual enhancements go, Camaro owners can choose between a wide range of exterior components, as well as engine covers finished in red, blue or black.
Compact, athletic design The exterior of the Camaro is more sculpted and more muscular effect that makes the new car look significantly lower and wider than before, even though it is within two inches of the exterior dimensions of the current Camaro. I fully endorse using it to dial a few degrees of steering while gunning the throttle; traction control optional. Eliminating the associated buttons makes the cabin feel more spacious, and makes adjusting the temperature easy while keeping your eyes on the road. Both systems use a rotationally molded high-flow intake tube that features an integrated velocity stack to increase the speed of the air charge entering the cylinders. Not that V8 noise should ever get tiring.
Ride and handling are worlds better than the Camaro it replaces; steering is sharp, nicely weighted, and precise. The car is more controllable and balanced in nearly every situation, providing a much smoother ride and all-round better dance skills. Compared to the previous generation, it is 2. However, the new Camaro comes with more equipment for the buck. We asked a designer: What have you done to improve the outward visibility of this new car over the last one? I had extremely high expectations. We are, probably like you everyday participants in vehicle traffic, so in our articles, we'll pay close attention to safety and economy at all. Side-by-side comparison Around back, modifications include a nicely sculpted bumper and new taillights.
The difference is that you'll find weaknesses a lot sooner in the Mustang. Color choices for the Redline Edition are Summit White, Silver Ice Metallic, and Black. In fact, the Mustang only has one over drive gear, with 5th being 1:1, but the Camaro has two, with 4th being 1:1. It is quicker, faster, safer, more practical, more efficient, more refined, quieter. Sure, sight lines are tight and if you like a lot of space, you will probably feel claustrophobic because you can't see as much of outside as. The gen-six car is different.
