Are you thinking of buying American Classic Cars, but you on a limited budget? Despite the economic crisis, your desire to own of one of the icon of American Classic Cars' industry is getting stronger day by day? What would you prefer, if you did not wish to pay more than $25.000 for a nice new american car.
As for me this problem has two possible solutions - the 2010 Ford Mustang V6 and the Chevrolet Camaro.
So, on the one hand we have the Ford Mustang with lower entry-level price and useful interior features. On the other hand we have the Chevrolet Camaro with unmatched performance. Let's go through these Camaro's and Mustang's features in detail to help you to make a right choice.
The Chevrolet Camaro with a high-tech 3.6L V-6 engine making 304 hp, for $22,995. Thank to the modern design the Camaro's ride is a smoother and more planted. Some of the Camaro's drivers have noted that the Camaro V-6 is fun to drive. In comparison with Camaro's ride, the Mustang’s ride and handling isn’t refined. This can be because of the Mustang’s outdated suspension technology.
If performance is a less important to you then the Ford Mustang is your choice. The Ford Mustang V6 with 4.0L engine making 210 horsepower has a lower base price of $20,995. This price doesn't include an $850 destination fee. As the Mustang has the lower entry price, you can afford some optional equipment in your limited $25,000 budget. You can afford an automatic transmission for $995, for example. Only for $23,995 you can afford an upgraded interior features includes leather seats, a powerful stereo and ambient lighting.
The Camaro can't match the Mustang Premium's interior features, even with its higher-optioned 1LT trim for $23,880. As consequence of it you can't stay in $25,000 budget. An automatic transmission are available on the Camaro V6 for $995. Only expensive Camaro's models has the leather seats . The upgraded stereo is an option for $495.
And one more important specification that to deserve mention is the fuel economy rate. Use of direct-injection technology and six-speed transmissions help the Camaro to achieve an impressive results. 17 miles per gallon in the city and 29 miles per gallon on the highway for models with the manual transmission. For the models with the automatic transmission the fuel economy of 18 miles per gallon in the city and 29 miles per gallon on the highway.
The Mustang’s fuel economy ratings are 18 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway for the models with manual transmission. But 16 miles per gallon in the city and 24 miles per gallon on the highway for the models with auto transmission. Furthermore one more recommendation is use regular unleaded gasoline for the Mustang and Camaro as well.
I hope this information will help you to become one of many happy owners of the American Classic Cars.
