2018 Ford Mustang vs 2018 Chevrolet Corvette

2018 Ford Mustang vs 2018 Chevrolet Corvette

Ford and Chevy have been going head-to-head for as long as we can remember – and even longer than that, as well. And while the competition is always interesting, we’re proud to say that our Ford models continue to outmatch, outperform and outclass anything Chevrolet has to offer. That’s true when the new Ford F-150 goes up against the new Chevy Silverado 1500. It’s true when the new Ford Mustang goes up against the new Chevy Camaro. And it’s also true when the new Ford Mustang goes up against the new Chevy Corvette, as you’ll see in this 2018 Ford Mustang versus 2018 Chevrolet Corvette model comparison.

The 2018 model year is a big one for both models. The 2018 Mustang is entering its first full model year as the best-selling sports coupe on the planet, and the 2018 Corvette is celebrating its 65th anniversary. That means both models have massive expectations to live up to, but only one can come out on top. When you’re finished reading everything here, you’ll see that, once again, the new Ford Mustang bests its competition in every way.
