2015 Chevrolet Camaro Commemorative Edition

The fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro has been a huge success for GM. The muscle car has sold over 400,000 cars since 2009 and it is currently the most purchased American muscle car.

Because of all the success and since the fifth generation is coming to the end of its run, Chevrolet has decided to release a special edition car to celebrate the car’s success. The 2015 Camaro Commemorative Edition made its debut at SEMA and is sure to sell well.

Exterior

From the outside you get what at first looks like a normal modern Camaro, but then you notice unique 20 inch wheels, the side stripe, the rear spoiler taken from the ZL1 and the front splitter. If all this wasn’t enough to differentiate it from other “normal” fifth generation Camaros there are Commemorative Edition fender emblems.

To further make the car stand out five exterior color combinations are available on the special edition performance car. They include:

Black with Cyber Gray stripe, Silver Ice Metallic with Cyber Gray stripe, Summit White with silver stripe, Ashen Gray Metallic with silver stripe and Red Hot with black stripe. SS models also receive a body-color hood insert.

Interior

The interior of the Commemorative Edition is available with a combination of Adrenaline Red and black leather. The special red color is only available in this special edition. Adrenaline Red is also found on the instrument panel and red stitching is used though out the interior.

The Camaro also gets an exclusive leather wrapped steering wheel with a flat bottom and Cammemorative Edition door sill plates. So, when someone gets inside one of these cars they will know it isn’t just any Camaro.

Drivetrain

The Commemorative Edition is available as an LT or SS. In LT form it is available with a 323 horsepower V6 engine which is enough to get any teenager into plenty of trouble with the law.

If you go for an SS the power shoots up to 426 horsepower from a 6.2-liter V8 engine. This allows it to launch its driver from 0-60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. Can you say burnout time?

Pricing

Pricing has not yet been released, but expect it to be announced closer to the cars release.

Conclusion

Chevrolet Camaro Commemorative Edition

The fifth generation Camaro has been a great car and the Commemorative Edition adds a bit of extra style over the good performing car. With the fifth generation having very good power and being able to handle pretty well, the sixth generation will have its work cut out for it.

Now the question is would you buy a Commemorative Edition over a standard SS or LT? The answer will likely come down to pricing as if it is priced comparably it would make sense, but a large markup would make us go for a standard car. Or better yet, wait for the next generation Camaro as it could be very, very good.

2015 Ford Mustang

2015 Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang has been with us for almost 50 years now. In that time a lot has hanged and yet very little has changed. When the Mustang was first introduced for model year 1964.5, it was a very good looking car and with the later help of Carol Shelby, it became a catalyst in the horsepower wars.

In all the time of its production, the style has changed and horsepower has gone up and down, but it has always had a form of the early solid rear axle design. For the 2015 Ford Mustang this is about to change for the better.

The new muscle car will be the best handling version ever thanks to its independent rear suspension. Now all that power won’t kill you when you get to a bend in the road.

Exterior

Ford Mustang Styling

The styling of the new 2015 Mustang retains some of the lines of the outgoing model, but moves the car more in line with the company’s new design. Noticeable changes include things such as the distinct new front grille and headlights.

Where the 2014 model had a front grille that closely resembles the design of the ’60s and ’70s cars, the 2015 model has one with additional angles that bring it more in line with cars like the Fusion. They manage to do this while still maintaining the essence of the classic mustang style.

The new car is wider, has a lower roof line and still retains the fast back styling of the last generation. This gives it a more sporty and purposeful look. The headlights are now smaller giving the front an angrier appearance which makes it look more like a car that you don’t want to race.

The rear end has become less angular with smoother edges. The taillights are redesigned, but still retain the feel of the last generation.

Interior

The interior in the new 2015 Ford Mustang looks like a good one. Quality materials are used for it and options like Leather give the car the feel of being higher end. Where past Ford interiors felt very plastic, the newer interiors feel much more high quality.

Overall the design of the interior is nice with pleasant angles. If you go with the all black interior it can feel a bit stark, but the same could be said of classic Mustangs.

One off looking item is that the angles on the passenger dash match those of the driver side. Without the instrument cluster this makes for a somewhat strange look.

Drivetrain

The 2015 Mustang is powered by one of three power plants. A 5.0-liter V8, 3.7-liter V6 or 2.3-liter EccoBoost 4-cylinder engine.

Of these choices the 5.0-liter V8 will be the most coveted. It puts out 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. This gives the pony car plenty of power to keep up with most performance cars on the road.

Surprisingly in the next powerful car the 2.3-liter 4-Cylinder engine is the next powerful option. The EccoBoost engine is turbocharged to put out 305 horsepower and 300 poud-feet of torque. If this vaguely sounds familiar that is because a similar setup was available on the Mustang in the early ’90s, although with less available power.

The 3.7-liter V6 may be the least powerful engine, but it still manages 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. It wasn’t that long ago that those figures would have been near the top of the lineup outputs.

Pricing

Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

Conclusion

If you want a fun American muscle car that can actually handle pretty well then the 2015 Ford Mustang should be on your list. While not as powerful or as good looking as the Dodge Challenger, it looks to be a good overall package. We applaud the move to independent rear suspension (finally) and can’t wait to see the higher performance variants.
