Next Year Vs Mustang and its aka 5.0 Coyote ???

________________________________________
So we all know our camaro comes with 426/400hp and 3800/4000 est weight.
Mustang is coming with a new 5.0 and around 400 hp est and 3300 est weight
(estimating)


After reading the motortrend of the camaro vs challanger vs mustang gt...

whats going to happen when the 5.0 comes out aka Coyote?

Will the mustang out do the camaro in acceleration and top speed and surpass us for first? I dont See Gm topping Ford in year 2 with a bump in hp.....
I would still never buy a Mustang or any Ford lol
but i cant help but think or even wonder ... will the 5.0 liter and less weight be enough to rise above the Camaro? ... itís already a photo finish or better yet a slightly Win for Camaro now with us using a LS3 and Mustang with there 4.6L according to motortrend. They didnt say Mustang was on our bumper....probably due to weight !
I understand Mustang can only Gain weight by adding Hp or a Larger motor however will it Be like the weight on the Camaro and will the new 5.0 be enough to get that extra length on us ?


Yalls Thoughts ?

I think 3300 isn't realistic...it'll be more like 3600+ IMO. Isn't the 2010 'stang around 3500? (I may be wrong, I don't pretend to be a mustang expert).

It's still lighter...but it's only a number...I'd rather have a Camaro no matter how little the 'stang weights.

How much will it cost when they put that Coyote engine in it?

I heard that soon (within 3 years or so), any car under 3700 pounds has to have an average of 30-something MPG- anyone hear if this is true or not?

I would think the bigger motor and changes they will need to make to the front suspension to acommodate the extra weight and power will bump the mustang up a couple hundred pounds. That would even out the advantage a little more. I have to say, i was impressed by how closely the mustang held up to the new camaro in acceloration and beat it in handling. Even with a live rear axle. God, did I just say that?

I think the new 'stang also has 3.73's...so that helps with 0-60.

I'm not sure if I believe that the mustang will out-handle the Camaro...did Motor Trend REALLY say that? I have read that the 2010 'stang IS the best handling mustang ever.

I think the Mustang will be faster. I'm also guessing that Ford has already ordered an SS. There just waiting, watching there build order to see when they can take delivery.


I hope they did not order cyber grey.

it'll be interesting to see... i'm betting the Camaro will still beat the stang in a drag race.
