Is the Chevrolet Camaro for you?

To compete with the classic muscle car Mustang from Ford, the Chevrolet Camaro was released in 1966, with four distinct generations developed until it ended production in 2002. The Camaro was revived though in 2009 as a concept car, which eventually evolved into a fifth generation model for the vehicle. Production of the fifth-generation Camaro began in March 2009 and is still currently in production. In 2007, the car made its big-screen debut in Transformers as the vehicle mode for the Autobot Bumblebee. In 2013, the Camaro boasts of being the car used by almost all of the Chevy teams participating in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

Pros

In the time that the Chevrolet Camaro was in the market before, it did good work at making a name for itself such that when it was revived there was a lot of interest in it. It also didn’t hurt that it was quite nicely priced at £35,025. Good value backed by good reputation will definitely draw in crowds, after all. If you’re looking for a European version of the Camaro though, you’ll be disappointed because this car is every bit a brawny American muscle car, a two-door, left-hand drive coupe with a 6.2-litre V8 engine. Nevertheless, there are body and engine options available that would make a Camaro more suitable for British roads.

Many American cars fail at attracting European consumers because of inferior interior quality. It’s a good thing then that the Camaro paid attention and improved material quality inside, turning to a modern theme that makes getting inside the car more appealing. Muscle cars and children don’t generally mix but if you have tots of your own, you’ll be glad to know that there’s enough space for them in the rear. Sufficient cabin space is also complemented by a big boot for its class.

Given its size, the Camaro offers superb handling. You can’t expect something so hefty to nimbly move but the Camaro is able to, and in such a way too that is comparable to the Porsche Cayman. There’s also great steering quality that makes making precise turns easy and whatever rolls you experience quickly settles.

Cons

It’s really a matter of perspective whether or not a big vehicle is a downside but it will definitely affect the performance a car. The Chevrolet Camaro is a big car, weighing in at 1,775kg with a full tank, which is a lot compared to most of its European competitors. It is also big in terms of size, measuring over 4.8m in length, longer than the Nissan 370Z by nearly 600mm and wider by more than 70mm. Then again, the Camaro is a muscle car. There’s no room for dainty here.  

It’s quite unremarkable for the Camaro to take 5.6 seconds to go from 0 to 60mph, but it’s got no electronic trickery to give it a boost so you’re dealing with just raw power. Still, that kind of acceleration is not much of a disappointment and identical times could be enjoyed whether you’re using the coupe or the cabriolet version.

History of Chevrolet Camaro

                Chevrolet Camaro was launched by Chevrolet, an American automaker, in the September 29, 1966 with an FR layout. This car was manufactured by the General Motors Company and is closely related to the Pontiac Firebird. The Camaro is classified as a pony car, a sports car, or a muscle car, and over the years, that car has had the two door coupé and two door convertible body styles.

                Camaro was created to become the main competitor of Ford Mustang, which was given the code name Panther. Although it went on sale only in Spetember 29, the Camaro was displayed in September 12 in Michigan, and on September 19 in California. This came to be the first generation Camaro and stayed in the market until 1969. In February 1970 until 1981, the second generation Camaro was released, and the redesign of the car was greatly noticeable.

                The third generation came in 1982 and stayed in the market for a decade. In 1993, the fourth generation came still with an F body platform, and it retained several features as well, including a rear wheel drive, 2 plus 2 seating, convertible, and V8 or 6 cylinder engines. This model remained until 2002, and for seven years, the Camaro took a break from the market. It was only in 2009 that the fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro was released, which was largely based on the 2006 Camaro Concept and the 2007 Camaro Convertible Concept. It came to be known as the World Car Design of the Year in 2010 and Camaro Convertibles were introduced in 2011.
