As for price, the Base Accord v6 comes in at about $26.5k which is about $4k more then the Camaro. And even though Domestic companies have been getting better at it lately, I'd still give the build quality and reliability score to the Accord.
I don't think these cars will be direct competitors, since the Accord is basically a family sedan and the Camaro is a sport coupe. However that doesn't mean they won't meet on the road
PS. Wow, I just noticed there's a quite a few accord owners on here getting the new Camaro or thinking of getting it.
reliability is an unknown for any new car, but the Camaro is being build at one of the best facilities in the world for initial quality, let alone North America. If you meant materials and design, then things become more subjective.
