Ford Mustang GT, Camaro SS 1LE, or Challenger R/T Scat Pack?

The Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and Mustang GT are back at it again. Although the Mustang and Camaro went head-to-head in a recent comparison test, all three cars have always had it out for one another. And after gathering the stallion versions of each pony car (Camaro SS 1LE, Mustang GT Performance Pack, and Challenger R/T 6.4 Scat Pack) and running them through our battery of tests, we crowned the Camaro SS 1LE the king of the bullring this time around. But which stallion would you have chosen?

The Camaro took the comparison mainly because it was better on both a canyon road and racetrack compared to the other two. Although it had the cheapest-feeling interior of the three and the weakest engine in terms of power and straight-line acceleration, the Camaro inspired the most confidence since all four wheels strongly gripped the ground, almost as if they were magnetically attracted to the road, one editor noted. Editors also loved how well-balanced it was. Performance Ponycar Showdown© Provided by MotorTrend Performance Ponycar Showdown

As for the Mustang GT, editors were a bit disappointed. "I'm angry because Ford didn't benchmark the Boss for the new Mustang the way Chevy benchmarked the Z06 for the new Stingray," we said. We also didn't like how it didn't run a smooth figure-eight. However, the Mustang's new independent rear suspension helped on the freeway, making it a good road trip car.

Now for the Challenger. Although it took the win in straight-line acceleration hitting 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds, its heft and girth was too much for editors to handle overall. Weighing 400 lbs more than the other two ponies, one editor said he felt as though the Challenger was smothering the road. This resulted in lots of body roll on the twisty Mulholland Highway, which editors didn't like too much. Performance Ponycar Showdown© Provided by MotorTrend Performance Ponycar Showdown
