Marcus, I compared the best available options for all 3 vehicles directly from the manufacturer's websites. I always get people like you trying to knock my article because they don't agree, but the facts are all there and can be verified on each manufacturer's website! Each car could win the battle if your choose the best option against the opponents basic, but I chose the best options available for each car and that makes it a fair comparison. Not everybody can afford the best option but that is indeed the best way to compare.

I have a Camaro in my garage right now, and this review is udder bullshit. First of all, the Zl1 is faster then the Z28 camaro. Second of all, both are slower then the 2015 Shelby and 2015 Hellcat. If your comparing the base model(z28 is not) then compare the SS, to the GT, and RT. Because if you do, camaro looses again. I love chevy, but the ball is in your court now. And stop with making camaro the most expensive of the new ponies, but the lease amount of fun. I love my chevy and I'm loyal, but your forcing us to pay more for the slower vehicle....THAT, has me looking at the enemies grass like boy that's green, hmmmm

Jonh, I agree with you about the Challenger being more muscle in style at least. I like the 2015 Challenger very much because it really has the muscle image. In the end though, I like the 2015 Chevy Camaro all around for performance and style. What do you think of the new Mustang generation?
Jonh on September 23, 2014:
The challenger is better is very muscle
Elizabeth (author) from U.S. on August 20, 2014:
Allen Stollings, the 2015 Camaro has the most horse power out of all 3 cars at 500 horse power standard. The Mustang and Challenger have less than that, not 700. Sure if you get certain upgrades or custom upgrade then all 3 cars can have more HP
Allen Stollings on August 17, 2014:
I think that the camaro need to put a bigger horsepower engine bc mustang and challenger have like 700 horsepower cars and Chevy need to step it up.
