Chevrolet Camaro Overview

The Camaro has classic muscle car looks and sound. Our tested Camaro SS was very quick, thanks to its 6.2-liter V8 engine. The base 3.6-liter V6 delivers decent but unexciting performance. Handling is very capable, but the car's size and weight makes it feel ponderous. Braking performance on the SS is excellent, and the ride is taut and controlled but not punishing. The emphasis on exterior and interior styling impacts practicality, bringing severely hampered visibility, unclear controls, a small trunk, and a tiny rear seat. The convertible has an awkward manual top release. High-performance ZL1 and Z/28 versions are new. Reliability has dropped to below average.
