CLOSED new MT: '10 SS vs. '10 SRT vs. '11 GT

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...son/index.html

we all know who motortrend is going to pick on top (and it very well should be), but dont ya think its funny how now they say the Camaro is a 13 second car when before it was a high 12 second car to them? I hope you guys now understand a little better how us Challenger guys felt from initial reviews when the Camaro first came out.

i'm sensing a little bias here for the new pony on the block...

12.7 @ 111.3 I think that's hardly magazine favortism along with it's performance in the other tests, all the numbers are better. unless they are lying about the mustang?
not bad for the first tests...

no i agree with you there, thats what the GT should run, but didnt they have the SS at 12.9 or 12.8 before? I dont remember the exact number, but i know it was sub 13 seconds. why change the numbers all of a sudden?

I don't think that is what the thread maker is saying, but are you saying motortrend is lying?

Car writers like new stuff but even then I think everyone expected the Mustang to edge ahead in overall performance with all of the changes. The only thing I would really disagree with very strongly is that of the group the Mustang styling is by far the most dated and bland looking at this point. It's still better looking than average but the average car looks like crap on wheels. One other minor thing that surprised me was the Mustang got 2mpg less than either the SS or SRT8, just found that interesting.

Well.. They're comparing an '11 to two '10 models. The '11 was made specifically to beat these models. Why not wait for the '11 SRT8 with the upgraded HP, or the '11 camaro with more aggressive gearing and suspension work, then let's see who is running faster.

whatever...Give credit for all of the cars, it is great we live in this day and age that we have these types of cars at our disposal with this type of performance.
I give credit, I just think it's funny how they compare a brand new model MADE to defeat these two cars, to the older model. I agree the GT is very, very impressive, but let's be realistic. A simple suspension tweak and better gearing and the camaro will be ahead. And the 6.4L speculation SRT8 is going to be a monster.
