I think GM are not marketing these cars correctly. In MIA, unless you are a Camaro fan, or a car enthusiast in general, many do not even know the Maro is being done. That is no joke as well. When a v6 shoed up to the local friday night car show, many were asking .."Is that a new GTO or something ? Its a camero ?? when did that happen ?"

Hell I finally seen a camaro commercial last week.

I have to agree. Also the cabin size seems a bit cramped. I am 6'4 290, and it was a bit of a squeeze...I was like "is this as far as the seat goes back ??" Also I did not like were the gauge cluster was..in front of the shifter like that...It seems you have to look right and down..granted you will not monitor that stuff like a hawk..but still..

I think they would have been better served by using the g8 concept, and just switched it around a bit.

While the G8 interior is a bit nicer than the Camaro's, do you know how much flack Chrysler gets for using the same interior in the Charger and Challenger?

As for the rear visibility of the Camaro ... what rear visibility? lol.

Got the 2010 Mustang GT Prem.

1. It is the better looking car in my opinion. Both inside and out. Now if it was the '05 model against the camaro it'd be a different story. The interior in the Camaro is way too cheap.

2. The front of the Mustang is way more appealing. The Camaro is lacking something, I think it's that really plastic looking grille. (I remember thinking the same thing about the '05 mustang having a really cheap grille)

3. More opportunities on the Mustang. Roush - need I say more?

4. Interior is like something of a cadillac, lexus or bmw. Its so nice.

5. Ambient lighting is done way more discreetly. It impresses but doesn't look like an alien spaceship.

However, don't let the cheaper price fool you - they aren't much of a difference.


2010 Mustang & 2010 Camaro both are some of the coolest cars. I was the first one to own a 2010 Mustang GT in my state, would love to roll around with a 2010 Camaro sometime. (Saw someone driving one today, though I think it was a v6)

haha, they must have alot stonger koolaid than we camaro lovers....
they think the mustangs interior is as nice a a caddy, lexus or bimmer. HAHAHA, thats some strongggg kool aid.

i think just about every camaro lover would agree that the CTS has a nicer interior. not saying i would rather have that in the camaro, but its undoubtedly nicer.

again, not trying to start an argument...

ACTUALLY the guy that works on my cars (retired from the local dealer, owns his own shop) has an old school Camaro.. I think a 1960's?

His comment (not word for word): "I actually like the dash better than a Lexus, which is my favorite."

Now, without the wood I'd have to say my car looks nicer than this.. http://www.cadillac.com/cadillacjsp/...primary=2&id=1

Hey man if thats his opinion its his opinion, I like the new Mustangs interior much more than the Camaros , but a CTS interior it is not! The CTS probably has the best interior for the money

im sorry, but it does not.
i know that you would like to think so, and thats totally cool that you think your car is the best made. and yes, i could compare a mustang to a cts, but that is not the topic at hand.

that doesnt meet 2012 safety standards is rubish. and i find it very odd of ford to unveil a car in 2010 that doesnt.

agreed!
and they beat a lot of higher priced cars.
and yes, interiors are subjective...
but, i combated that with the safety mandate, thats a fact.
