I'm with you in that the Mustang has a far more diverse lineup than Chevy's offerings but I'm not sure if I agree with your assessment as to why. The current Mustang platform, the S197, debuted in MY 2005 and received serious upgrades in MY 2010 and again in MY 2011 to accommodate the 5.0L Coyote. The platform on which the Camaro is built, the Zeta, began production in Australia during the 2006 MY, just one year after the S197 was released. Of course, no one knows for sure -- other than Ford and GM employees -- how long prior to release both of these platforms were in development by their respective companies...
