Chevrolet Camaro
2017
Chevrolet Camaro 2017 coupe Trim Shown: 2017 SS coupe RWD Manual

The current Camaro is lighter, shorter, narrower, and lower than the previous generation, and these benefits pay dividends in the car's impressive handling agility and sharp steering. The optional magnetic ride suspension impressively keeps the car planted. The manual shifter has light, precise throws. Base models use a 275-hp turbo four-cylinder, and the new 3.6-liter V6 makes 335 hp. For the SS, Chevrolet dropped in the ferocious 6.2-liter V8 from the Corvette. All use a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic. The higher-quality interior features the easy-to-use MyLink infotainment system. Visibility is atrocious, and rear-seat room is extremely tight. A performance ZL1 version arrives as a 2017 model with a 640-hp, 6.2-liter V8 supercharged engine and available 10-speed automatic.

Chevrolet Camaro 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Convertible LT

The Camaro takes classic muscle-car looks and sounds and injects them into a modern drivetrain and body. Our tested Camaro SS was very quick, thanks to its 6.2-liter V8, but the base 3.6-liter V6 also delivers decent performance. Handling is capable, but the car's size and weight really hurt its agility. Braking performance on the SS is excellent, and the taut and controlled ride isn't that punishing. However, the emphasis on interior and exterior styling undermines practicality. It results in severely hampered visibility, difficult to read controls, a small trunk, and a tiny rear seat that is tricky to access. The convertible has an awkward manual release for the top.

Chevrolet Camaro 2002 Trim Shown: 2002 Convertible

Despite a styling freshening, a 320-hp version of the Chevrolet Corvette's 5.7-liter V8, and a rich racing history, the Camaro and Pontiac Firebird were among GM's slowest sellers. Though they affect a sporty image, both are too bulky to be nimble. They also ride uncomfortably. Traction control is a worthwhile option, especially in V8-powered models (the base engine is a 3.8-liter, 200-hp V6). Muscle cars as a class can also be hideously expensive to insure, a point worth considering particularly if there's a young male driver in the family.
