2010 Camaro SS vs 2009 Shelby GT500 price difference(and Challenger SRT8)

I was just online and pulled a Canadian price comparision between the 2010 Camaro SS and 2009 Shelby GT500. I was suprized to see a difference of only $2659. I know I've seen guys quote differences in the $15-20k range. I found this rather interesting. A friend of mine just bought a 2009 Challenger SRT8 and paid $52,000 Canadian. The GT500 isn't to bad of a deal at the current pricing and less than a 2009 Challenger SRT8. I put the price page from each below. But the Camaro and Challenger have a sunroof included and the GT500 does not. Interesting comparison none the less.

Whatever website you found that quoted a 2SS MSRP of 40K has a retarded chimp for a webmaster.

Of course! I knew I was missing something here. Anywho, yes the GT500 has some great deals going for it right now. But is has also been out for awhile. They can afford to do that. Once you start seeing employee pricing on Camaros, expect to see a bigger difference.

You forgot to add the automatic transmission to the Camaro to bump its price even further, and subtract haggling from the GT500, then they'd be the same or the Camaro might be cheaper.

Yes that's true but it will also have 120 HP more than the SS or SRT8.

I'd take your Vette dude!! Love that color!!!
$150k would solve all problems....one of each!
I was figuring the Camaro would be cheaper in Canada, being that they are made up here. AAARRRHHHHGGG

GT500 MSRP is actually $55,699 and the 2SS is $46,540 - $9,100 difference not $2659. The MSRP on the 2009 GT500 is adjusted to sell it and make room for the 2010 GT500 which will be 10-20k more than the Camaro. Especially considering the difference in price for the 2009 GT500 over a 2010 Camaro.

No base MSRP is $54,299 + $100 AC tax + $1300 destination. Delivery allowance (Ford trying to get them off lots) is $6500. MSRP less delivery is $49,199. I got all that from the pictures you posted.

Weird when I go and build a 2009 Shelby Mustang Coupe that is optioned out to equal what a Fully loaded 2SS would be.. I come out with like:
Total MSRP: $62,476
Delivery allowance: $6,500
MSRP less Delivery Allowance - $55,976

Canadian Currency that is.. staying CAN currency so no one gets confused since OP was in CAN currency.

Alright, cool here we go... this looks more accurate now.

Had to add in the door sill plates since 2SS has them, spoiler is a toss up? Cargo net comes with 2SS, and HID lights i added onto the Mustang since the RS package option selected on the 2SS above has that in it.



still not too bad of a price..

So apples to apples it is roughly a 5K difference.

The Shelby is only superior in it's horsepower rating because they had to supercharge a Ford to hang with the N/A big dogs.

For about 5~6K, you can buy a procharger for the SS that will leave the Shelby smelling exhaust.

PLUS -- the Camaro is the hands down winner is looks.

I don't know why, but the mustang grill always reminds me of a poor animal who needs to be rescued or put out of it's misery.
