The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro rocks. After years of expectancy, Chevy’s brand-new Camaro isn’t simply living up to the hype yet likewise redefines what a muscular tissue vehicle could be. This new Camaro, well, it’s an entirely various beast.
Impressively, the new Chevy Camaro is an outstanding performance-car worth whether it’s equipped with the base direct-injected V6 or the optional V8. The V6-powered base Camaro can sprint to 60 mph in 6.0 secs, thanks to 300 horsepower, yet it costs the same as competitors like the considerably slower Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0 T. Heck, even the V6’s fuel economy is impressive compared to its competition. The V8-powered Camaro SS with the manual transmission ignores 60 miles per hour in a blistering 5.0 secs– 426 HP will certainly do that for you– yet it’s substantially cheaper than cars like the BMW 135i and Challenger SRT8 and outperforms the slightly more affordable Mustang GT. The Camaro handles smartly, too, with even the base car, surpassing the rarefied 68 mph mark on our slalom course.

Riding on a shortened and reworked version of GM’s Zeta platform, which it shows the Pontiac G8 sport activity car, the Camaro flaunts an independent rear suspension and also fine-tuned taking care of qualities. The base direct-injected 3.6-liter V6 coincides advanced engine that’s an extra-cost alternative on the Cadillac CTS luxury car, while the 6.2-liter V8 in the manual-transmission Camaro SS is essentially obtained from the base Corvette (automated SS designs get a somewhat much less powerful V8 variation). This is some serious hardware, and as our tests have revealed, it truly supplies the performance products.
This isn’t to state that Chevrolet has actually in some way spawned the ideal performance coupe. While appealingly styled, the auto’s retro-themed exterior and high beltline leave little area for glass, and also the resulting gun-slit-like windscreen and home windows compromise exterior exposure to the point that it can be challenging to put the auto in tight corners (as well as parking spots). Another knock against the Camaro is its lackluster interior materials– they’re better than the aged Camaro’s, without a doubt, yet a couple contending designs do it much better. There’s likewise the comically low trunk position (implying it’s difficult to load large things right into the trunk) and also the absence of a manufacturing plant navigation system.
Will you care? Possibly not. In the last evaluation, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro is an auto that’s no-excuses excellent. Even the Camaro in V6 automatic trim is no longer something that fanatics will certainly snicker at. And also with the chest-pounding V8, the Camaro will have the muscle car gods looking down as well as beaming. You likewise acquire capable handling capabilities, retro-cool styling as well as impossible-to-ignore prices. The wait mores than; the Camaro is below. As well as yes, it stones.
