‘Murican muscle will never go out of style, especially with the latest crop of performance machines from Detroit. They’re the best Motown has built in, well, ever.
And two of the finest are the all-new Shelby GT350 Mustang and Chevrolet’s Corvette Stingray. The former has been freshly foaled for the model year and features a screaming 5.2-liter engine derived from Dearborn’s already awesome Coyote V8. It delivers 526 naturally aspirated horses and 429 lb-ft of twist. The only gearbox available is a six-speed manual.
Chevy’s offering counters with a 6.2-liter small-block engine. It delivers a stout 455 horsepower along with more torque than the Shelby, 460 lb-ft to be precise. A seven-ratio manual or eight-gear automatic are offered.
