MotorTrend comes back with another daring comparison, the new 2015 BMW M4 against the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. Clearly an apple-to-oranges comparison, but nonetheless an interesting one.

The new 2015 Ford Mustang GT  is powered by the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 which received upgrades for 2015, which raise output by 15 hp and 10 lb-ft from the previous Mustang GT. All 5.0-liter V8s received bigger intake and exhaust valves along with the Boss 302’s valve springs. At 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, the 2015 Mustang GT is down 9 hp from the Boss 302, though it makes 20 lb-ft more.

The 2015 BMW M4 is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six which makes 425 hp and 406 lb-ft. That’s barely up from the last-gen M3’s peak 414 hp, but up significantly in the torque department.

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT starts at $32,925, while the 2015 BMW M4 has a base price of $65,125. The 2015 Mustang GT manual weighs 3705 pounds, which is 87 pounds more than last year’s model and 175 pounds more than the 2015 BMW M4 manual’s 3530-pound curb weight.
