Mustang Smokes the Competition

By September 2, 2009

2010 Shelby GT500Consumer Reports recently pitted the 2010 Ford Mustang against the Chevrolet Camaro and the Dodge Challenger. And guess who was declared the winner? If you say "Mustang" you're right on the money.

According to Consumer Report's engineers, the Mustang received a Very Good overall road test score of 78, outpointing the Camaro which received a Very Good 71, and the Challenger, which received a Good 53 points. David Champion, senior director of CR's Auto Test Center in East Haddam, Connecticut said, "The Mustang topped this group by delivering strong acceleration, communicative steering, and the most agile handling."

The report went on to say that, " In everyday driving, the Mustang corners with agility and the highway ride is civilized. The five-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly and accurately. Braking is Very Good. The 2010 freshening brought upgraded interior materials and better fit and finish." If that's not good news, I don't know what is.
