There is only room for one coupe atop the Seattle sales peak - and the 2018 Mustang has secured a snug position there, forcing its competition to huddle in the shadows below. Ford’s signature fastback reigns among the North American market, delivering staggering four-cylinder capability; and no other platform can hope to unseat it.

The 2018 Camaro (briefly) tried… and failed.



According to Digital Trends, Chevrolet sought to steal the sales crown from Ford - introducing the Seattle market to its 2018 Camaro. Anchored by a 2.0L four-cylinder, this platform promised 275 HP (at 5,600 RPM) and 295 lb.-ft of torque (at 3,000 RPM). It combined turbocharged performance with a six-speed manual transmission, and its rear-wheel-drive ensured smooth cornering through seamless traction distribution. On paper it seemed a near identical match to the Mustang.

On the highway, however, it couldn’t measure up.

Digital Trends explains that the 2018 Mustang - despite also having a six-speed manual transmission and a rear-wheel-drive - delivers considerably more power than its Camaro cousin. Beneath its hood rests a 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder. This generates 310 HP (at 5,500 RPM) and 350 lb.-ft of torque (at 3,000 RPM). This marks a more than 10% improvement over Chevy and ensures a continued first-place position in Seattle.
