Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, drivers may find the Ford Shelby GT350 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Shelby GT350, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Corvette will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Shelby GT350, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Corvette and the Ford Shelby GT350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Corvette is a little wider than the Ford Shelby GT350, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Chevrolet Corvette, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Shelby GT350.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Corvette does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Shelby GT350.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette is somewhat more powerful than the Ford Shelby GT350.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Ford Shelby GT350, making the Ford Shelby GT350 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Corvette has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Ford Shelby GT350.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Corvette comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Shelby GT350.
