I believe he was talking about 2010/2011 models- the newest year model released for each car.

Obviously it is faster than a whole slew of cars from the 70s and 80s. But when someone goes to buy a new Camaro (V6) they aren't cross shopping and 1989 Corisica... lol or and "83 Cavilier.

The point of his post was the same as the point of YOUR original comment.

Point is: Your car has an impressive engine for what it is, but overall your car is heavy and slow. Just like our little V6s right??

lol.

Sorry man, but you asked to be burned back.

Can't we get along

Wow... FPATT


To the OP keep in mind that when the 2010 v6 was launched, the mustang didn't have the v6 it has now. The chally needs a diet, and the genesis was just coming around at the same time. Now its just over a year later and the 2011 v6s are just coming off the line. When chevy designed/built this car, they didn't have as close of a competition as they do now with more powerful cars coming out daily. And as others have said, the v6 is a hell of a car, but its not the top dog. Now, that's not to say that gm won't tweak things ad make it even better. But remember that as soon as gm bumps the level up, then ford will top that then someone else will top that and the cycle continues. Another thing to keep in mind is that the majority of camaro buyers don't care about what other cars it can beat on the track or street. The car is marketed with horsepower in mind. Just like when the new mustang v6 came out it had 1 more hp than the 2010 v6 camaro was rated at. That one extra hp sells cars. And in the ongoing battle gm has bumped the power up on the v6 camaro

The point is, todays faster car is tomorrows second place. It is a never ending process.

V6 Camaro 2010 vs V6 Mustang 2010= A Camaro win for sure!!! I know I have beat several.

Uh its all a drivers race really. I've beaten two Mustang GTs (the olderish ones) because I can shift faster. The best time I've seen the V6 run on average is a 14.3. Even if a competitor car is faster, say a 13.8, that .5 seconds can be made up in a lot more ways than you think. You could potentially beat a 2011 Stang with a V6, if he spins his tires hard out the hole and shifts too early or too short almost a second of time can pretty easily be made up. Don't forget reaction time either, if you get a good jump you can beat a much faster car.

The V6 brings plenty of power to the fight and with a good driver it can hang with cars that are faster on paper and look 100x better in the process.

I've raced two different Mustang GTs and only got beat by the second because I chickened out. There were too many other cars out on the interstate and I didn't want to miss my exit. It was close, trust me! I blew the first one away...90 in a 50 zone--oops! This is all new territory for me. FUN!

the new mustang is only faster than the camaro because the 2010 v6 camaro annihilated the 2010 v6 mustang. that v6 in the stang was a very old engine model, and all the mustang fans out there have the camaro to thank for the horsepower bump. and yes, i kno, w/o the stang, the camaro wouldnt be as good either. thats just the nature of the beast. chevy decided not to give the 2011 any extra power. fine. its still a freakin fast car, and you're gonna be faster than a lot of cars on the road. and if you bought a v6 in the first place, you shouldnt be complaining about a lack of HP. if you want power, get the ss.
just my 2 cents.

There is always a faster car. IMHO, my Camaro beats other cars just standing still. Speed costs money...you can buy it....but, someone else has more money, more technology and more time than you. They can beat you on the track....but, as has been said many times....who wants to go fast ugly! Fastest 1/4 time is under 4 seconds and yes, its a top fuel dragster.....beat that! Fast is a state of mind....a verb....an opinion....a turtle compared to a snail....a cheetah compared to a lion....a Camaro compared to......well, we Camaro owners know about that

Hyundai's 2010 Genesis is faster Yepp.

350Z is faster Yepp.

any infinite V6 car is faster Yepp.

Altima coupe is faster too i guess Yepp.

the new 2011 V6 mustang is faster Yepp

The V6 camaro is only a showcar, it looks nice, that all i guess Agreed.


after all, it is a V6.

I just wanted to add my .02 in here.

First off, a bit of misinformation to correct - the Challenger SE is NOT heavier than our V6. In fact, its about 30 pounds lighter at 3720 pounds. The difference in performance comes from a substandard 5-speed automatic and no available manual, and a mediocre 250 horsepower engine. This is a clear win for our Camaro.

As for the Genesis, I concede that it is quite a capable performer. If I were buying a vehicle in this class to race, I would seriously consider this platform. The power is there, its lighter by a lot, and the outward visibility is significantly better, but its also more expensive than the V6 Camaro, as the Genesis uses its L4 as the base engine. Regardless, it doesn't evoke the same passion for me - or any passion, for that matter. In sheer performance, this is a win for the Genesis.

As for the 350Z and the G37, I don't feel these should be included at all. They're both priced at 5-6k more starting than a fully optioned V6 Camaro, and are meant to compete more closely with the SS. Just because they have a V6 doesn't mean they're the same class of car.

As for the Altima Coupe, I once again have to concede that it is quite a capable performer. But don't be fooled by 0-60 times. Its a hair faster than our 6 to 60 mph, but its actually right at the same or slower in the 1/4 mile, with an ET of 14.6 @ 97 mph. And as stated before, its a couple thousand more expensive starting. I do actually like the design of it though. I'd consider this one a numerical tie as far as performance goes, because 1/4 performance is extremely based on the skill of the driver, and 0-60 even more so.

As for the 2011 Mustang, so far its shown to only be faster in performance pack form - without it, its considerably hampered by the 2.73 rear end that Ford used to get their 31 mpg statistic. If GM offers a track pack for the Camaro in 2012 (which I get the feeling they will, for both V6 and V8 models) I think we'll find it competes quite a bit more closely with the new V6 mustangs. This is a win for a performance pack V6, or a tie otherwise.

There is a 2011 v6 owner who was regularly posting in the v6 section. His car was no faster then any Camaro LLT, and I believe he had the performance pack, although I could be wrong about that. While I'll concede by magazine times, the 2011 v6 Mustang should indeed be quicker, the one real world tester isn't getting the same times. I'll go even farther and say the 2011 v6 Mustang is quicker, but it's probably going to come down to driver in most cases.
