America has always been the home of muscle cars. Now, we'll take a look at the two of the most powerful cars on the market. Let's see who has the edge in terms of specs, price, engine and over-all look. Which is the best muscle car? Is it the 2016 Chevy Camaro SS or the 2016 Ford Mustang GT?
Let's take a look at 2016 Chevy Camaro SS first. Recently, the car bagged this year's "Motor Authority Best Car to Buy 2016". Motor Authority editors reviewed the most ferocious cars in the market to tell which one is the best. After a series of test drives and analysis, they agreed 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS is the best muscle car to buy.
The pumped-up 2016 Camaro is armed with a LTI V-8 that runs on 455 horsepower and identical numbers when it comes to torque, 455 lb-ft.
Engineers of Chevrolet used the best materials available in the market to build the Camaro SS. The car has Cadillac-sourced pieces, which can be found on its body structures and steering gear. Its multi-link suspension wears the first-ever magnetic dampers from Chevrolet. This feature helps the car to skim over the road instead of pummeling over dangerous stretches of pavement.

The engine of the 2016 Mustang is mounted in the middle, behind the seat to provide an ideal weight balance.
