TheChevrolet Camaro came back from an eight year hiatus in its fifth generation with something to prove. No longer willing to let the Ford Mustang reign the muscle car kingdom, the Camaro was designed as "a heritage-inspired sports car for the 21st century, combining great looks and performance; advanced technology and surprising efficiency."
These new goals set for the Camaro were instantly illustrated in the overall shape of the vehicle and the advanced, 3.6L direct-injected V-6 engine available in the two lower trim levels: the LS and LT versions. The higher end Camaro was given the SS designation and carries with it a 6.2L V-8 engine with fuel-saving Active Fuel Management on automatic-equipped combinations. All three trims are available in 10 different exterior colors.
The Camaro was well received when it made its comeback in 2010, even pulling off the title of World Car Design of the Year at the World Car of the Year Awards. Chevrolet made sure that title stays true with subtle changes to both the 2011 and 2012 model years.
Updated 03/27/2012: Chevrolet has announced today a series of changes for the 2013 model year Camaro that is set to make its world debut next month in New York. Changes for 2013 include the addition of a new 1LE package, an electric power steering system standard on all SS models and an available dual-mode exhaust system, available on Camaro SS models with the LS3 V8 engine and six-speed manual transmissions.
Also, the interior will get Chevrolet’s color touch radio with MyLink infotainment and a 7-inch touch screen that can be paired with an available in-dash GPS navigation system – a first for the Camaro.
