Just a wild guess on my part...I have no ideal why......higher gear ratio may screw with something...has to be a reason..

It is an emission and EPA rating thing, it would require retesting of it in that option combination.........I know it is stupid but that is why. That is same reason that you don't have 10 differnent engines, 5 transmissions, 2 rear axles, and 5 gear ratios to choose like the 69 Camaro had (ah those were the days).

With the same basic chassis having been in production/on the road since 2005, any defects or issues (quality control or mechanical) have likely been engineered out of the Mustang.

The Camaro is just now hitting the roads and we, the consumer, really don't know much about the short or longterm items that are going to be an issue. Some of those issues have already reared their ugly head, albeit is a relatively small number of cases, but they are occuring.

If you are someone who can get past the brand-loyalty issues that abound in the marketplace, this kind of information might play heavily into which car you spend your hard earned cash for.

Personally, I think both are equally impressive offerings.

As hard as I try not to, I like you more and more with every post!
