Chevrolet Camaro vs Ford Mustang vs Dodge Challenger

2021 CHEVROLET CAMARO

The Chevrolet Camaro is the iconic sports car. With five distinct models and four exhilarating powertrains, there is a purpose-built 2021 Camaro for your performance needs.

But how does the Chevrolet Camaro compare against other high performance sports cars like the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger?

The Chevrolet Camaro has a wide range of engine and transmission options just like the Mustang and Challenger. Although the Camaro ZL1 doesn't match the Mustang GT500 & Hellcat Redeye on power, it does accelerate faster to 100 km/h and is in the middle of the trio in terms of top speed.

When it comes to safety, the Chevrolet Camaro is available with most active & passive safety system except for automatic emergency braking & front pedestrian braking. Only the Ford Mustang is available with those features. But the Camaro has 8 standard airbags, the same as the Mustang.

Elsewhere, the Chevrolet Camaro came be very similarly equipped to the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger. All are available with heated & ventilated front seats, heated steering wheels, standard Apple CarPlay & Android Auto (though it is wireless in the Camaro), Wi-Fi hotspot, and dimming rear view mirror among others. The Camaro is also available with a sunroof, the Mustang is not, and the Camaro can be equipped with a wireless smartphone charging pad, the Challenger cannot.
