Considering the low end v6 camaros cost 65 dollars per horsepower (far lower than any of the cars listed, and the v8 camaro is in the 80's (I used what I paid for mine)...far better than any of the cars listed.

I'm not sure where you got that number, but I worked this up.

I'm using the Chevrolet "Build Your Own" site for these calculations:

V6 = $22,680 for 312hp = $72.69 per pony
V8 = $30,945 for 426hp = $72.64 per pony

Yes, still way lower than any of the other vehicles he mentioned though.

Seems like this guy has some serious bias going on. To me, it sounds like he just lumped the Chevy Colorado into the mix to try and prove that he's not biased.

I think Mr Nadeem Muaddi Should stick to writing about religious article's and let people who actually know a thing or two about cars write about them.

I'm guessing he was trying to pick the "best" out of each category (small car, light truck, sports car, minivan) and he failed miserably...

Interesting... I don't need a columnist somewhere to validate my choice in cars... likewise I didn't seek out advice from some columnist when I purchased my car.... All I know is I like my car, am happy with my choice, and could care less what anyone else thinks of it... in fact what other people think about my car is their business, I don't have to know.... (hmmm my make that last phrase my new sig line....)

Seriously? The Kia Forte made it but not the Camaro? Or even 2011 Mustang?

LS base price - $22,680
LS HP - 312
$72.69 per HP

SS base price - $30,945
SS HP - 426
$72.64 per HP

2011 Mustang V6 - $22145
HP - 305
$72.61 per HP

2011 Mustang GT - $29645
HP - 412
$71.95 per HP

Lower, means you're spending less for each HP.
