There’s a muscle-car war brewing in Detroit these days. Right as the handling-champion Z/28 goes out of production, Ford delivers a Shelby-badged suckerpunch with a flat-plane-crank V8, MR dampers, and carbon fiber wheels. Head 2 Head host Jason Cammisa takes the two through a series of challenges: first, some canyon carving to see which car is better on the road. Then, a dyno shootout: can the GT350R’s 5.2-liter Voodoo make more power than the venerable 7.0-liter LS7? And then, it’s onto Chuckwalla Valley Raceway where Jason and racecar driver Randy Pobst find out not only which one is faster around the track, but which car handles best. No muscle-car comparison test would be complete without a drag race, of course, so Cammisa lines up the cars with the help of his cousin Bob from West Virginia. This episode of Head 2 Head, presented by Tire Rack (www.tirerack.com), is the one-stop shop for everything you need to know about the latest Detroit muscle-car rivalry.

      12 second quarters not bad but any 1000cc production motorbike would slaughter them both by 2 seconds plus - and you need balls

      Ten years later ford came up with something 😂. And the ecoboost is fast and the grand national 30yrs prior. So the 7.0L is still better making power earlier?

      Sold my 2015 Z/28 and bought a 2019 GT350 because of this review. So far I would say the review is spot on.

      Why compare 2015 camaro to 2016 mustang? Is that really a fair up to date challenge? Just asking. You drive on the road more a lot more than the track.

      Seems a little ford biased but things like this are about the theatrics and that ford nails it

      2 key points to vehicle comparisons...
      1: people have different driving experiences/preferences and a Mustang or Camaro winning wont change a fans opinion of which to buy in most cases
      2: each vehicle (in any comparison) will perform differently in different; weather/altitude/tire-brake wear/driver fatigue or mood/etc. When they're this close its even more-so the case.

      Neither vehicle is a bad car...the Z28 is not a practical daily driver, the GT350 is designed to be. Ford put a bit more of their cost into the interior, GM spends a good amount on suspension/braking/performance etc and tends to lack on interiors, for some reason.. Wider tires also helped the GT out quite a bit...305 is big, but come on...a 315 all around is just awesome!

      Point being... no one buying these will be doing heads up races regularly...other than a few track days or a visit to a local drag strip, you'll be driving either of these in traffic, stop n go, sub 70mph cruises. When people compare 10th of a second in 1/4 miles or 60ft or G's...its silly if nothing else. You could get into one, drive it for a week, then the other and THAT will tell you which connects to you..not some silly performance times.

      For me, the style, sound, and being a bowtie fan (first car was a 69 GTO) I'd take the Camaro...however the price tag for a Camaro not designed for daily driving wouldn't be an option for me..it'd be a ZL1 or SS 1LE or something with a standard transmission. I liked the first gen Ford Mustangs back in the 60's...then nothing since for the most part. But for had made a huge leap in design and my daily driver is actually a full bolt on Focus ST...which I think is THE best looking hatch made...and its my first Ford I've owned of 30+ vehicles since I was 16.

      So was it raining or sunny on the day of the shoot? LOL. Funny when they cut from him in the Mustang driving behind the wheel to the outside shots the rain is gone and the wipers aren't on anymore. No big deal really just a bit of continuity missed. Cars are great and the video is a blast over all too.

      Put some newer tires on the Z-28, and drive it through the corners like they were meant to be driven.
