The 2008 Mustang has this option. also it comes with the option of side curtain air bags as well.

The Mustang is lighter for many reasons, 1) 4.6L Aluminum Engine (it's smaller) 2) Aluminum Hood and roof. 3) Solid Rear Axle not IRS.
4) SIZE..
..........................Camaro...Mustang
wheel base...........112.3......107.1
length..................190.4.....187.6
width...................75.5.......73.9
height................. 54.2.......55.4
track front...........63.7........62.8
track rear.............63.7.......63
F/R Bal................52/48......51/49
curb weight (lbs)...3,870......3,450

you are saying that the Mustang comes with ESC and the side airbag options. in your chart have you added the Mustang with both of these options? i'm guessing NOT. because the weight that ford suggests for the mustang is for the Mustang that doesn't have both of these options, plus not to mention a smaller engine and no IRS and the size of the car the Camaro is a wider and larger car.
