Pony car aficionados will easily identify the not-so-secret recipe for the Chevrolet Camaro. Piles of go-power and cornering grip are packed into a rear-drive, two-door sports coupe with racy styling providing as much appeal as the power. While the V6-powered Camaro is no slouch, the 6.2-liter V8 in the SS sounds the way a muscle car should.

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"My Camaro SS is a beast. The acceleration is incredible. There is so much torque and horsepower that it almost doesn't matter which gear you are in, you will still have lively performance and I still get around 20 MPG combined highway and city driving."

Michael E., NV (2010 Chevrolet Camaro)

"I have the standard shift model and the gearbox is not a smooth shifting gearbox also limited view from side view windows for lane changing."

THERESA C., NY (2010 Chevrolet Camaro)

Chevy acknowledged this issue, changed the latch and material and refused to retro fit my car. The only issue on this car and likely the one that will get me to buy something else."

Value

"High-performance, excellent brakes and suspension, and 426 HP for a car that cost under $31000 is a tremendous value to me."

Anonymous, OH (2010 Chevrolet Camaro)

"After almost 8 years of ownership, I still love this car! Fun and HP for the dollar, this is still a good deal. Quality remains very high, paint and clear coat is still qreat, no mechanical issues ever. For the age, it only has one or two minor squeaks or rattles.

CHARLES W., MI (2010 Chevrolet Camaro)

"The car has 45,000 miles on it and the trans cooling line rusted out(I live in SoCal 2 blks from beach). I had to have the car towed 20 miles to my mech to have the 2 front cooler lines replaced and because of the "sealed trans" take it to another shop to have oil and filter changed. Because of metal in the filter I will have to dump the car because the trans is close to failure. GM ended our relationship by putting the thinnest possible steel line to save money. I have lost trust in their produ"
