Where was it answered at? In any case, Chevy did this same thing back with the 3RD Gen F-Body cars. But back then the autos got the better engine. The autos got the 5.7 TPI while the manuals got the 5.0 TPI. I think Chevy did this to keep the manuals from being too close in competition to the Vettes. They got away from that thinking with the 4TH Gen cars. So as far as the new ones are concerned, I have no idea why they would do the exact opposite this time around. I mean, Ford didn't handicap the auto Mustang, at least not to my knowledge.
