Current Model
The Camaro possesses impressive handling agility and sharp steering. The optional magnetic ride suspension does an impressive job of keeping the Camaro composed on rough roads.
The manual shifter has light, precise throws. Base models use a 275-hp turbo four-cylinder engine, and the 3.6-liter V6 makes 335 hp. For the SS, Chevrolet transplanted the ferocious 6.2-liter V8 from the previous-generation Corvette. Transmission choices are a six-speed manual, and eight-speed and 10-speed automatics. Outward visibility is downright atrocious, and the rear-seat room is extremely tight. There's also an extreme ZL1 version available, powered by a 650-hp, 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine.

2016 Redesign Year
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. The Camaro received a number of exterior styling updates for 2020. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity is new for 2021.

1993-2002
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.
