The weight of the 6th generation Camaro has dropped compared to the 5th generation. It is not exactly a light car and in ZL1 trim hits 3926 pounds (with 54/46 front to back weight distribution) but the manual transmission Camaro SS comes in at 3589 pounds.
This is an independent weight test and it shows almost 50/50 weight distribution. Not having a blower or all the additional cooling necessary sure makes a large difference in overall weight and the weight on the nose of the car.
Now compare this to the 2015 Mustang GT 6-Speed:
3718 pounds. An advantage for the Camaro at least as far as SS vs. GT is concerned.
It will be interesting to see how the upcoming GT500 stacks up against the ZL1.
