It turned a pretty decent time for a 4 cylinder automatic

Didn't see the Ecoboost but I did see a comparison between the 1LE Camaro and Mustang GT.

I'm not really surprised at the results either. In several prior comparisons the 1LE was found to be an average of about two seconds faster than the Boss 302 was on a number of track tests. No doubt that the 1LE is a great car.

The Camaro sounds a lot better than the Mustang too. Ford really needs to put better sounding mufflers on the Mustang. Why they never got a muffler closer to what the GT500s came with is beyond me. Even the 05-10s sounded better than anything from 2011 and up.

The Ecoboost Mustang review I found:
2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost 2.3 First Test

'13 V6 Premium Coupe, Deep Impact Blue w/pony pkg & MT82 - bone stock

I drive it like I own it.

It was an interesting test of the 2015 Mustang GT(Performance Pack) and the 2015 Camaro SS1LE(Performance Pack). It definitely looks like the Camaro is a better performer on the road course track and the twisties. It takes a top driver, like Pobst, to get those kinds of track results, but the "twisty comments" all pointed to better driving in the Camaro.

A bit depressing the "new" Mustang can't outgun the "old" Camaro.

Tires guys, the tires on the Camaro are worth two seconds easy. Magazine people are either stupid or lazy.

I wonder if Randy enjoyed the "fake" engine sounds????

"Three weeks ago, Road and Track’s Jason Cammisa pulled a fuse while driving the EcoBoost and discovered that the classic engine noise in the cabin you expect from a muscle car disappeared. Later on, it was confirmed that the EcoBoost Mustang was fitted with “Active Noise Control” and “Active Noise Cancellation” systems. You’ve probably heard of noise cancellation before, as it’s a feature in many newer cars to reduce interior noise caused by the vehicle’s engine and the road while traveling. But what about noise control? Both sound pretty similar, but “Active Noise Control” is the system that’s giving EcoBoost drivers great noise to listen to on the road."
