Comparison should be apples to apples imho.
Yep. MT should have tested the ZL1 against a 2012 GT 500 instead of a Boss 302. THAT would have been apples to apples - but Chevy wouldn't let them. Why? I'm betting the 2012 GT 500 would have taken the ZL1 through the quarter.

Top of the line VS top of the line IS fair. The Bow Tie Boys have had YEARS to catch up. Time to see where they stand. Competition only makes BOTH better!

Forbes ZL1 Review (Jan 2014)

Positive ZL1 article from Forbes. Don't agree with the high clutch effort comments but otherwise a nice write-up....
