When they made the 2005 change, they had to make a permanant platform decision on IRS because it could not be adapted later like they did on the previous generation Fox platform for the Shelby's. The beancounters and the engineers fought for a long time, guess who won?

The 2010 Mustang has been revealed to be a mild refresh that is years too late, and too little for me. No comparison, but to each his own.

I want it all:

1. Corvette

2. Camaro

3. Challenger

4. 370Z

5. Mustang

this is the real 2010 mustang. It looks to much like the 2005, they just changed the front end. the bule color looks good on it. Still get a camaro.

Actually, that isn't accurate. IRS could have been added to the GT500, and Ford seriously considered that feature along with an aluminum block for the 5.4L and a twin screw supercharger. All were scrapped due to costs, but not because of bean counters. For was afraid a 50-55k dollar GT500 would have been pushing the upper end of the ponycar market a bit hard.

2010 Camaro or 2010 Mustang - Who Will Be The Sales King?



I can't wait to see these two cars starting to line up side by side.

Mustang will lead. Lower price = more accessible.

I want exclusivity!

No way the 300 hp v6 will fix that end of the market.
That is a very nice engine.

I personally think camaro. The Camaro V6 has 15HP less then the stang GT and its 5k or so less. Regardless of 1/4 mile or 0-60, the HP ratings still get the buyers.

"the mustang is gonna get its butt kicked, horsepower ratings are carried over from the last gen stang, baseline camaros have 300hp over the stangs 210.. the challenger's baseline 250 makes it a good contender but ford is gonna get a bow-tie/pentastar shaped boot in its ass"

The mustang will simply because of the low amount of Camaro's being made throughout 2009.

More Mustangs + previous market dominance + name recognition + lower price tag = more sales. The Camaro is being more exclusive this time around, which imo is a good thing.

I don't think the Camaro will outsell the stang any time soon. Oh and the top down view of the stang in the op is hideous!

That is the unfortunate truth... look at the F-150... I'd take the Chevy truck over it any day, if someone gave me a mustang or a F-150 at this point I'd sell it and buy a Chevy LOL:flag2:

I hope its the stang. I want to see them saturate the streets, all the same drone, same girly girl driving it. Same old same old.

Like most of you I want the Camaro to be exclusive, so when people see it they go WOW!!! Not .... "oh no not another stang!"

Yep,everyone that has a Mustang will mostly buy a new one,not that you meant it that way. It has one of the best return-buyer stats of any car ever made. I'm on my second one and will consider another. It's a great car.
I think the Mustang will still remain sales king,no knock to the Camaro.
