2019 Ford Mustang vs 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
How do you go about unseating the undisputed ruler of the sportscar segment? Apparently, you take things to wholly unnecessary levels and slap a six-figure price tag on the window. At least, that seems to be how Chevy is looking to take down the Ford Mustang – not that it’s actually going to work.
What we’re talking about is the 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1, the latest in a long line of contenders for the Mustang’s championship belt. But while other competitors try to outperform the new Mustang lineup with close-but-no-cigar power ratings and a comparable price tag, Chevy seems to have lost their minds and gone nuclear. To see what we mean, check out this 2019 Ford Mustang versus 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 head-to-head model comparison.
