Compared to the 2014 Ford Mustang GT manual, the 2015 model year is 87 pounds (39 kilograms) heavier. As for the basic V6 engine with the stick shift, the increase sits at 30 pounds (13 kilograms).

As for the sixth generation Camaro, there’s a lot of mystery surrounding this subject.
Our carparazzi caught it on film numerous times, in coupe and soft-top convertible guise. Furthermore, we know it will ride on the GM Alpha platform, add a four-pot turbo to rival the Mustang’s EcoBoost and boast with Transformers 4 Bumblebee-inspired styling.
The weight of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro eluded us until now, but we got some great news for you. General Motors president Mark Reuss said that the sixth-gen will not be heavier than the 2015 Camaro.
“The next-gen Camaro I can tell you after driving it extensively and then taking it onto the autobahn and Nurburgring in Germany a week before last -- that car out of the gate, the SS version, with a great powertrain -- which you can imagine what that might be -- off a very mature and exclusive architecture, is not going to be heavier. There is some physics here.” Mark Reuss told Motortrend.
Let's wait and see if engineers manage to keep the 2016 Camaro 1SS below 3,900 lbs (1,769 kg)...
