2020 Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package Beats Camaro

We’ve talked a lot about the 2020 Ford Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package car that is set to launch this fall. The car will give Mustang fans another way to beat the Chevy Camaro base model. The gang over at MSN Autos has been able to climb behind the wheel of the Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package and is comparing it to the performance numbers that are already out there for the base model Camaro with a turbo four-cylinder.

The 2.3L High Performance Package is aptly named says the publication, and impressively fast for a four-cylinder car. The Mustang HPP is significantly faster than the comparable base Camaro with the turbo four-cylinder and 1LE bundle. Chevrolet says that the base Camaro 1LE will go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. While official performance numbers on the Mustang aren’t released yet, MSN Autos says that Ford has told it that the 2020 Ford Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package would run from 0 to 60 mph in the mid-4-second range. That is impressively fast for a four-cylinder Mustang.

The assumption is that the mid-4-second run to 60 mph is with the 10-speed automatic transmission. MSN reminds that the base four-cylinder Mustang lacking the 2.3L High Performance Package was already faster than the comparable base Camaro, and that gap is growing. It takes a standard base EcoBoost Mustang 5.3 seconds to reach 60 mph, which is 0.1 seconds faster than the Camaro. To rub it in the Camaro’s face a bit more, the 2.3L High Performance Package is also faster than the mid-range Camaro with a V6.

The base V6 Camaro with a manual transmission last tested by MotorTrend as a 2017 model ran 0 to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds making the 2.3L High Performance Package Mustang faster than Chevrolet’s mid-range offering. Ford hasn’t offered official pricing on the HPP Mustang, but reports have claimed it will add nearly $5,000 to the price of the base car, and bring more than a bump in power.
