Ever since the General Motors company built the first vehicle to compete with Henry Ford and the ford motor company, consumers have argued over which was better. Back in those days the better car was the one that fell apart last and was the cheapest. Today consumer values have changed, and with that change comes a want for more options and a good value for those options. “Creature Comfort” as it’s called is a big priority for the consumer. The next biggest thing is performance; the consumer wants a good performing machine that’s going to give them “Creature comfort” and a great value. Early consumers got to look a one option windshield or no windshield. Today the consumer gets to ponder over options like power windows and door locks, Air conditioning, Leather interior, CD players, and keyless entry systems.
With an evaluation of the sports car market, I will compare the 98 Ford Mustang and the 98 Chevrolet Camero. I have owned both of these vehicles and am very knowledgeable on both of them. The knowledge I have gained over the past five years as a consumer and as a driver of both of these cars will prove that the Mustang is a much better buy than the Camero.
I will start things off in my evaluation with one of the main aspects of a car that almost all consumers look at, gas mileage. I will start things off with the Camero Z28. The Z28 is the top of the line Camero and the biggest performer. The Z28 gets eighteen miles to the gallon in the city and twenty-nine on the highway. The Mustang Cobra R is the top of the line Mustang put out by ford, and is its biggest performer. The Cobra R gets twenty-one miles per gallon in the city and thirty-one on the highway. This gives the Mustang an advantage in gas mileage.
The next aspect will be performance. This puts the two cars very close in statistic likeness. The mustang will be the first to go. The mustang in its cheapest form gets 200hp @ 5200rpm, the Cobra R mustang is the mustang in its most expensive form gets 315hp @ 5200rpm. The mustang Cobra R will run the standing ¼ mile in 13.8 seconds @ 102 miles per hour. The Camero in its base cheapest form has 200hp @ 5200rpm.
