Autoblog recently decided to gather the horsepower specs and prices of all the cars on sale today and compare them to see which offers the most amount of power for the least amount of money. They split their results up by power output, with the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro topping the 300-400 horsepower category.
When equipped with the 323 horsepower 3.6-liter LFX V6, the $23,705 Camaro only asks $73.39 per single horsepower. The next closest vehicle is the Toyota Tundra pickup, which has a 381 horsepower 5.7-liter V8 and costs $29,120, equivalent to $76.43 per horsepower. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe ($76.87/hp), Dodge Ram 2500 5.7L ($80.12/hp) and Ford F-250 6.2L ($81.13/hp) round out the top five.
The Camaro doesn’t just offer the best horsepower-per-dollar ratio in the 300-400 horsepower category, but the best horsepower-per-dollar ratio of any car currently on sale. The 435 horsepower Ford Mustang GT is awfully close, asking $73.79 per horsepower, but the bowtie gets the bragging rights this time around.
Other General Motors vehicles that offer a notable amount of power for their price include the Chevrolet Colorado, which topped the 100-200 horsepower category at $100.60/hp, the Camaro SS V8 at $78.65/hp and the Camaro ZL1 580 at $95.70/hp.
