I have been daily driving my 2010 SS for the last 4 years. While it is not a bad car, it’s not a very good sports car. And if all they are knocking off is 200 lbs, that’s quite disappointing. That means an SS will weigh 3700 lbs. Not very impressive at all.

We’re all excited to view just what improvements this newest providing will have to bring, yet numerous people are curious to see exactly how the Camaro will certainly stack against its newly modified rival, the Ford Mustang.

“I’m certain. Really confident,” Reuss said, talking with Fox news. He detailed that he had driven both cars back to support the week prior, and also the improvements made left him fairly satisfied that Chevy is well equipped for the pony auto wars.
From the specifics that we know so far, the latest Camaro changes from the full-sized Holden-developed Zeta system to the Alpha platform that the Cadillac CTS and also ATS use on. Aside from that, the Camaro has 70 % distinct parts, including a host of “smart” products for stiffness and lightness.
GM chose to place more aluminum in this generation Camaro compared to the previous variation. This, in addition to a number of various other weight saving alternatives, has caused the Camaro now being 200 extra pounds lighter than in the past.
“There are some actually amazing factors in the Camaro, that are rather different than the Malibu, [or the] CT6,” Reuss claimed, as these new cars have obtained a comparable treatment.
Under the hood, the Camaro is anticipated to source the 6.2-liter V8 that powers the Corvette Stingray. In this motor vehicle, it creates 460 horsepower while, for comparison, the present Horse’s 5.0-liter V8 puts out 435 hp.
