Product Information

2013 CHEVROLET CAMARO RANGE EXPANDS WITH TRACK-READY 1LE PACKAGE

The road-racing-inspired Camaro 1LE performance package returns for 2013 with unique gearing, suspension tuning and tires that make the model capable of more than 1 g of lateral acceleration and a sub-three minute lap time at Virginia International Raceway’s Grand Course. It is offered on Camaro SS coupes with manual transmissions.

All Camaro SS models now feature variable-effort electric power steering and an available dual-mode exhaust system on manual transmission-equipped models. Both features were introduced on the Camaro ZL1.

The 2013 Camaro lineup includes:

  • The 323-horsepower (241 kW) V-6-powered LS coupe and LT coupe and convertible – including the 2LS with an EPA-rated 30 mpg on the highway
  • The Camaro SS coupe and convertible, with a 6.2L V-8 delivering up to 426 horsepower (318 kW)
  • The 580-horsepower (432 kW) supercharged Camaro ZL1 coupe and convertible. (Please see the separate Camaro ZL1 release for complete details.)

In addition to the new performance features offered on the Camaro SS, all 2013 Camaro models offer a wider range of choices and enhancements that will help it remain America’s most popular sports car. New and revised content includes:

  • Chevrolet MyLink and color-touch radio standard on LT, SS, and ZL1 models
  • Chevrolet MyLink and color-touch radio with GPS map navigation (late availability)
  • Hill start assist now standard on all manual transmissions
  • ZL1-style shift knob standard on all manual transmissions
  • Remote vehicle start now include on 1LT and 1SS with automatic transmission
  • Blue Ray Metallic exterior color
  • Frameless inside rearview mirror
  • New 18-inch and 20-inch wheel designs
  • Mojave leather interior trim.

1LE details

The 1LE package is offered on 1SS and 2SS coupe models with an exclusive Tremec TR6060-MM6 six-speed manual transmission. Paired with a numerically higher 3.91 final-drive ratio, the close-ratio gearing of the transmission is tuned for road-racing performance. As with the ZL1, the 1LE transmission features a standard air-to-liquid cooling system for track use.

The 1LE also features exclusive, monotube rear dampers instead of the twin-tube dampers on SS models. The new hardware allowed engineers to tune the 1LE suspension to focus on optimal body-motion control while preserving much of the ride quality and wheel-motion control of the Camaro SS.

Other changes to optimize the 1LE for track-day use include:

  • Larger, 27-mm solid front stabilizer bar, and 28-mm solid rear stabilizer bar for improved body control
  • Strut tower brace for improved steering feel and response
  • ZL1-based 20 x 10-inch front and 20 x 10-inch aluminum wheels
  • 285/35ZR20 Goodyear Eagle Supercar G:2 tires front and rear (identical to the front tires for ZL1)
  • ZL1 wheel bearings, toe links and rear shock mounts for improved on-track performance
  • ZL1 high-capacity fuel pump and additional fuel pickups for improved fuel delivery during high-load cornering.

Visually, the 1LE package is distinguished by its matte black hood, front splitter and rear spoiler – as well as the 10-spoke ZL1-based wheels, which are finished in black. The functional front splitter and rear spoiler contribute to the car’s on-track performance by helping to reduce aerodynamic lift at high speeds.

Inside, the 1LE package incorporates the ZL1’s flat-bottom steering wheel, trimmed in sueded-microfiber and designed for easier heel-and-toe driving on the racetrack. The quick-acting, short-throw shifter from the ZL1 is also trimmed in sueded-microfiber.

In anticipation of consumers entering the 1LE in amateur-racing events, Chevrolet is pursuing SCCA approval of the 1LE package for Touring Class competition.

The Camaro 1LE package was introduced in 1988, inspired by Camaro’s involvement in Pro-Am road racing.

MyLink details

Chevrolet’s color touch radio with MyLink infotainment is available on 2013 Camaro LT, SS and ZL1 models. The color touch radio, with a seven-inch touch screen, also can be paired with an available in-dash GPS navigation system – a first for the Camaro.

The color touch radio with MyLink gives customers a higher level of in-vehicle wireless connectivity and customized infotainment options, while building on the safety and security of OnStar. It seamlessly integrates online services such as Pandora® internet radio and Stitcher SmartRadio® using hands-free voice and touch-screen controls via Bluetooth-enabled phones.

MyLink adds stereo audio streaming and wireless control of smartphones, building on the voice-activated Bluetooth hands-free calling capability already offered in most Chevy vehicles. The high-resolution, full-color touch screen display makes media selection easy to navigate. MyLink also retains all the capabilities of today’s entertainment functions, including AM/FM/Sirius XM tuners, auxiliary and USB inputs.

Camaro design and exterior features

Camaro’s heritage-inspired interior and exterior convey sportiness through iconic design cues. A rear spoiler is standard on all models and a variety of stripe packages offers a broad range of personalization features.

LT and SS models are available with the RS package, which adds 20-inch wheel, body-color roof moldings and antenna, as well as high-intensity discharge headlamps. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard on LS and LT model, with 20-inch wheels standard on SS.

The Camaro convertible brings top-down driving fun and style to LT and SS models. And because the architecture for the fifth-generation Camaro was designed to accommodate a convertible model, it gives the cars coupe-like driving dynamics. Four strategic reinforcements enhance the already-stiff body structure to quell the cowl and steering wheel shake common in convertibles. They include:

  • A tower-to-tower brace under the hood
  • A transmission support reinforcement brace
  • Underbody tunnel brace
  • Front “X” brace and stiffer cradle as well as rear underbody “V” braces.

All convertible models feature a standard rear vision camera system. It is also standard on 2LT and 2SS models and available on 1LT and 1SS.

Exterior colors include Summit White, Black, Crystal Red Tintcoat, Victory Red, Rally Yellow, Inferno Orange Metallic, Ashen Grey Metallic and Blue Ray Metallic. The convertible top color choices include black and beige.

Camaro interior features

Camaro’s well-executed balance of heritage and contemporary features provides a fun and comfortable environment for up to four. An ambient lighting package on 2LT and 2SS trims gives the interior a special glow with LED light pipe technology.

Driver and passenger seatsfeature six-way adjustable settings (fore/aft, up/down and tilt), with power recline front seats that are standard on LT and SS models. Heated, leather-trimmed seats are part of the 2LT and 2SS trim packages.

Additional comfort and convenienceinclude a standard driver’s foot rest (dead pedal), power windows with express up/down, an auxiliary gauge panel in the center console – standard in 2LT and 2SS – and a new ZL1-inspired shift knob for all manual transmissions. A leather-wrapped, three-spoke steering wheel is standard on LT and SS.

A head-up display, which projects key instrument, Turn-by-Turn navigation and audio system details on the windshield, is part of the 2LT and 2SS trim packages. And complementing the new MyLink infotainment system is a six-speaker sound system on LS, 1LT and 1SS. A 245-watt, Boston Acoustic nine-speaker sounds system is standard on 2LT and 2SS – and available on 1LT and 1SS.

Interior color and trim choices include Black, Beige, Gray, Inferno Orange and Mojave. The Inferno Orange and Mojave combinations include contrast stitching and other details.

Camaro powertrains

Standard in LS and LT models is the LFX-code 3.6L V-6, rated at 323 horsepower (241 kW) and enabling EPA-estimated 30-mpg highway mileage (2LS model). Many lightweight engine features contribute to that, including an integrated cylinder head/exhaust manifold design that saves about 13 pounds per engine, when compared with a conventional, non-integrated design.

Two 6.2L V-8 engines are offered in the Camaro SS, including the L99 on automatic-equipped vehicles and the LS3 on manual-equipped models. Horsepower for the L99 is 400 (298 kW) at 5,900 rpm and torque is 410 lb.-ft. (556 Nm) at 4,300 rpm. The LS3 develops 426 horsepower (318 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. (569 Nm). Output on the L99 is lower than the LS3 because of a slightly lower compression ratio (10.4:1 vs. 10.7:1) and design features of the Active Fuel Management system.

All Camaro models can be equipped with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with TapShift. Equipment and features include:

  • The Aisin AY6 six-speed manual is standard with the 3.6L engine, and a Hydra-Matic 6L50 six-speed automatic is optional
  • A Tremec TR 6060 six-speed manual is standard on the SS, and the Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic is optional
  • The SS model’s Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual is designed to handle the high torque characteristics of the LS3 engine and is matched with a 3.45:1 final drive ratio
  • A close-ratio version of the Tremec TR6060 is used with the 1LE package and is matched with a 3.91 final drive ratio
  • Hill start assist is standard on all manual transmissions.

A dual-mode exhaust system is available on Camaro SS models with the six-speed manual transmission. Similar to the systems found on the ZL1 and Corvette models, this vacuum-actuated system provides a quieter driving experience at low engine speeds and a more aggressive sound at when aggressive acceleration is called for.

Camaro chassis and suspension

Camaro features fully independent front and rear suspensions, with the rear suspension featuring a 4.5-link system that includes a unique, L-shaped upper control arm that attaches to the knuckle at one end and incorporates a ride bushing in the rear. A sub-frame at the rear is double-isolated to minimize vehicle body motions and dampen road imperfections. Coil-over shock absorbers are used in the rear with a decoupled, hollow stabilizer bar. The front suspension has a dual-ball strut system, with a direct-acting stabilizer bar.

Four suspension packages are offered: FE2 sport on LS and LT models; FE3 on SS Convertible models, FE4 performance on SS Coupe models and the FE6 with the 1LE Performance Package.

Four-wheel disc brakes are standard on all models – including Brembo four-piston calipers on SS – with hydraulic brake assist. StabiliTrak electronic stability control is standard on all models. Competitive/sport mode on SS models enhances on-track performance and Performance Launch Control on SS models with the manual transmission optimizes hard-acceleration launches for quicker, more consistent performance.

New for 2013, an electric power steering system developed for the ZL1 is standard on all SS. This variable ratio, variable effort system provides light efforts for easy maneuverability at parking-lot speeds as well as increased resistance at higher speeds, providing more feedback and a more direct steering feel.

Camaro safety and crash-avoidance features

The Camaro is designed to help drivers avoid crashes, while protecting occupants in the event a crash occurs. A strong body structure is designed to absorb crash energy and provide a protective “safety cage” around occupants. In fact, the 2012 Camaro was the first passenger car to receive NHTSA’s revised quadruple 5-star safety rating.

Additional features include:

  • Six standard air bags include side curtain air bags, which provide head protection for outboard passengers in the event of a side-impact or rollover crash
  • Rear Vision Package includes a rearview camera system to complement the rear park assist feature (standard on 2LT and 2SS; available on 1LT and 1SS)
  • StabiliTrak electronic stability control system helps reduce the risk of rollover crashes by keeping the vehicle in the driver’s intended path by applying throttle, braking or a combination of both
  • Standard four-wheel disc brake system featuring smooth, quiet operation, longer pad life and more resistance to brake pulsation
  • Pretensioners minimize forward movement during a collision, and are standard on the front safety belts. Load-limiting retractors cinch the belt more tightly
  • Standard tire pressure monitoring system
  • Standard remote keyless entry (RKE) system provides a second function for the red panic button. Drivers can use it to locate their cars without sounding the panic alarm.

OnStar details

Six months of OnStar Directions and Connections service is standard on all Camaro models. OnStar is the global leading provider of connected safety, security and mobility solutions and advanced information technology.

OnStar’s RemoteLink Mobile App allows smartphone users to control vehicle functions, access vehicle information and send directions directly to the vehicle. A new, opt-in service called FamilyLink allows subscribers to stay connected to loved ones by checking the location of their vehicle online or by signing up for vehicle location alerts.

Camaro also features new OnStar button icons. Drivers will notice an updated look for the Hands-Free Calling button, blue OnStar button and red Emergency button.

Chevrolet Camaro Expert Review

Staff Writer

The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro offers few changes from past model years, as this marks the fourth year of the current design. Chevrolet redesigned the Camaro during the resurrection of retro vehicles several years ago and with coupe and convertible options, the Camaro offers something for everyone. Chevrolet offers four different trim levels with three different engines. The LS and LT share a less powerful engine, while the SS and ZL1 can match up against most any muscle car.

Chevrolet MyLink and color-touch navigation start new. The SS gains standard electric power steering and a dual-mode exhaust as an option. Hill start assist and a ZL1-style shift knob come standard with the manual transmissions. Remote vehicle start is included on automatics with 1LT and 1SS packages. Wheels get redesigned. Blue Ray Metallic provides a new paint option, and Mojave leather interior trim becomes available.

The Camaro marks one of the most iconic vehicles on the road and the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro nods to the vehicle's history while still managing to remain stylishly contemporary. The first version of the Camaro debuted in 1966 as a competitor to the Ford Mustang. The present-day Camaro shares the long-nosed frame of its forefather, although the vehicle now has a more balanced appearance that looks less severe.

The interior of the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro offers seating for four, although the cramped rear indicates that it was designed with drivers in mind. Drivers enjoy an ample 42.4 inches of legroom, while those in the rear make do with just 29.7 inches. The base LS comes standard with cloth upholstery, although upgrading to the higher level 2LT results in leather seats. Although the seats are adequate, they can get slightly uncomfortable on long car rides and the ride can veer towards being choppy. In reintroducing the Camaro, Chevrolet faced with the difficult task of appealing to both a youthful demographic and a nostalgic customer base. A number of features testify to Chevrolet's commitment to the younger demographic, including Bluetooth wireless capability and Sirius XM Satellite radio, which come standard on all trims and styles. All trims are also equipped with MP3 capability.

Evaluating the interior features on the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro is difficult since the features vary wildly depending on the trim. The base LS falls into the entry-level sports car category. While the LS and LT offer a good value, their features reflect their lower price point. To its credit, the LT does offer some nice perks at a relatively low added cost, such as power seats and power steering. Meanwhile, the SS and ZL1 offer luxury touches such as steering wheel audio controls and a voice-activated navigation system.

Cargo capacity on the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro remains limited but not out of line with the other vehicles in its category. The coupe offers 11.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity, while the figures for the convertible vary depending on whether the top is down. With the top up, the convertible offers 10.2 cubic feet of cargo capacity, which drops to 7.9 cubic feet with the top down.

The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro offers front, side, and side-curtain airbags on all trims. Traction and stability control also come standard. Upgrading to the LT brings the added bonus of fog lights. Well worth springing for among buyers who live in the city, Chevrolet offers optional rear-mounted parking sensors, and the backup camera provides another worthy option.

The driving experience of the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro feels smooth enough that drivers use it on a regular basis. Chevrolet offers customers a great deal of flexibility when choosing a Camaro. Buyers have the choice of either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.

The main drawback to the driving experience of the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro is that the steering feels numb and the vehicle is also too heavy to deliver a complete sporty feel. The driving experience of the Camaro varies wildly depending on the trim level, although the Camaro has been reported to deliver a strong zero to 60 mph time of six seconds. The LS and LT share a 3.6-liter, V-6 engine with 323 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. This engine is a capable performer within its category, although it pales greatly when placed alongside the more powerful SS and ZL1 trims. The SS upgrades substantially, with a 6.2-liter, V-8 engine that offers 400/426 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. The SS offers a great deal of bang for the buck and probably the best value of any of the trims in the Camaro line. The ZL1 is the prize Camaro and uses a 6.2-liter, supercharged V-8 that brings 580 horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque. The ZL1 stands head and shoulders above the rest of the Camaro line from a performance standpoint. Although, unfortunately for buyers, this distinction also applies to the price. The ZL1 starts at an eye-opening price, and at this price point it is clear that Chevrolet has positioned the ZL1 as an alternative to the iconic Corvette.

2013 Camaro ZL1 Review....130K Miles Later (Highest Mileage \u0026 Cheapest ZL1)

2013 Chevrolet Camaro

The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro is in its fifth-generation, last redesigned for the 2010 model year. For 2013, the Camaro remains relatively unchanged, but upper trim levels do get Chevrolet's MyLink touchscreen interface, with optional GPS navigation. A new race-inspired 1LE Performance Package on SS models equipped with the manual transmission includes a sportier suspension, high-performance summer tires and unique gearing.

2013 Camaro LS and Camaro LT models come with a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 323 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic is optional. In terms of power, the V6 can pretty much pass for a V8, a bonus for the price. The V6 on 2013 models revs to 7200 rpm.

Engine modifications introduced for 2012 help with power and efficiency, and include a revised cylinder head design with integrated exhaust manifolds, improved intake ports, larger intake valves, longer-duration camshafts, a composite intake manifold, new fuel pump, optimized-flow fuel injectors, cylinder block enhancements, stronger and lighter connecting rods, and a cleaned up camshaft cap and throttle body.

A Camaro LS achieves a fair EPA fuel economy rating for its class, at 19/30 mpg City/Highway with the automatic transmission.

Camaro convertibles are equipped like the coupes but feature a power soft top fitted with acoustical foam in the headliner to minimize noise with the top up. This latest-generation Camaro was designed from the outset to include convertible models, and reinforcements were added in four key areas to increase rigidity.

Camaro SS uses the 6.2-liter V8 from the outgoing Corvette, good for 400 hp and 410 lb.-ft. of torque with a 6-speed automatic, or 426 hp and 420 lb.-ft. with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The SS uses firmer shocks, springs and anti-roll bars than the V6 models, but the ride doesn't suffer for it. A limited-slip rear differential is included to reduce wheel spin when trying to put all that power down.

The uber-high-performance Camaro ZL1 uses a supercharged version of the 6.2-liter V8 good for a whopping 580 hp and 556 lb.-ft. of torque. It can accelerate from zero to 60 in 3 seconds flat with a top speed of 184 mph. While testing at Germany's famed Nurburgring racetrack, Chevrolet factory drivers set a lap record with the ZL1, beating the Porsche 911 GT3. At $55k the ZL1 is cheap, given its supercar levels of performance. We drove a Camaro ZL1 at Virginia International Raceway and found it both thrilling and easy to drive fast. It's a fantastic performance car, great for track events or autocrossing. Yet it can cruise comfortably around town and on the highway as a daily driver. The suspension does not punish the driver on rough roads. It's a very impressive machine.

We found the handling, ride and brakes to be excellent in both the Camaro LT with the V6 and the Camaro SS with the big V8, although the SS suspension is stiffer and its 20-inch tires are firmer. Inside, the Camaro cabin is quiet, so 80 mph feels more like 70. Interior materials are good, but the instrumentation is disappointing, with GM still trying to be retro rather than clean with gauges.

Perhaps the Camaro's biggest drawback is its limited driver visibility, due it a high beltline and small windows. The view out front is compromised by the long hood and raked design. Rear visibility over the driver's shoulder is hampered by the low, slanted roofline.

Competitors to the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro include other American pony cars like the Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang, each with its own high-performance versions. A refreshed Camaro is on the way for 2014, so there may be deals and offers on 2013s.

Model Lineup

Camaro LS ($23,345) comes with the 3.6-liter V6 and 6-speed manual transmission. Standard features include cloth upholstery, manually operated air conditioning, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, telescopic steering wheel, six-speaker AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 sound system, Bluetooth, OnStar with turn-by-turn route guidance for six months, limited slip differential, 18-inch steel wheels. (Prices are Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices and do not include the destination charge.) The 2LS ($25,445) comes with the 6-speed automatic transmission and a 2.92:1 axle ratio.

Camaro LT ($25,760) upgrades with sport cloth seats, power front seats, remote start (on models with the automatic transmission), Chevrolet's MyLink interface with touch screen, Bluetooth connectivity and USB port; foglamps and and 18-inch alloy wheels. The 2LT ($29,585) includes leather upholstery and 9-speaker Boston Acoustics sound system and adds a head-up display, rearview camera and 19-inch aluminum wheels.

Camaro SS ($33,535) features the 6.2-liter V8, a Tremec 6-speed manual gearbox with limited slip differential, special exterior trim, a beefier suspension and four-piston Brembo disc brakes. Standard features are similar to the 1LT, plus a leather-wrapped steering wheel and 20-inch alloy wheels. The 2SS ($37,035) adds the same features found on the 2LT.

A new 1LE Performance Package ($3,500) is available on SS models with the manual transmission and adds 285/35ZR20 Goodyear Eagle Supercar performance summer tires, upgraded suspension with front and rear stabilizer and a 3.91 final-drive axle ratio.

Convertibles are equipped similarly to the coupes and include the 1LT ($31,560), 2LT ($35,335), 1SS ($39,585) and 2SS ($42,185) trims.

The top-of-the-line Camaro ZL1 ($56,550) adds a supercharger to the 6.2-liter V8 to get a mind-bending 580 hp and 556 lb.-ft. of torque. Added features include with traction control, magnetic ride control, big Brembo brakes, retuned power steering and unique 20-inch wheels. Front and rear fascias are slightly different than other models, and genuine carbon fiber is used for the extractor on the hood. Interior upholstery is suede-like microfiber with red accent stitching and a smaller, flat-bottomed steering wheel.

Safety equipment on all Camaros includes electronic stability control with traction control, anti-lock brakes, frontal airbags, front side airbags, airbag curtains, and tire pressure monitor. A rearview camera is optional.

Walkaround

This generation Camaro captures the look of the original '67, though it's bigger in every dimension: longer, wider and taller.

Viewed head-on, classic 1969 Camaro headlights appear. Behind the shark nose with black mesh grille, up on the long aluminum hood, there is a suggestive power bulge for the V8 engine. It's the long hood and shark nose that catch your eye and trigger your longing. The SS has an additional wide and thin black simulated intake on the nose.

Slight twin humps on the roof are visible at the top of the steeply raked 67-degree windshield that helps produce a 0.37 Cd in the LS and LT, and 0.35 Cd in the SS.

Viewed from the rear, and especially from above, the lines suggest the 1963 fastback split-window Corvette. That classic Corvette made a strong impression on the Camaro's young designer, Sang Yup Lee, who came to the U.S. from Korea as a boy and grew up in the California car culture.

Styling gills located just forward of the rear wheels add a nice touch to the Camaro. Even though the power dome hood and cooling gills are not functional, they all work as touches of style and don't come across as phony.

The shapely strong hips stand out, like the long hood, an edgy element the designer is most proud of, because they took so much work. He said it took 113 tries to get the one-piece sheetmetal right, from the doors and pinched beltline rearward. There's no indifferent craftsmanship with this car, that's for sure.

The rigid B-pillar is blacked-out, thus creating a clean outline for the side glass, blending into a handsome hardtop roofline. The short rear deck climbs upward and looks hot. The twin taillights look like blinking red sunglasses in each corner, under the small lip of a rear spoiler.

The convertible chassis is reinforced to stiffen the body structure, with a cross brace under the hood to connect the front shock towers, a transmission brace, an underbody tunnel brace, and underbody V-shaped braces front and rear. This helps the convertible ride and handle more like the coupe. Chevrolet says the convertible chassis is rigid enough that the suspension didn't need to be changed from the coupe, and that the Camaro convertible has more torsional stiffness than the BMW 3 Series convertible.

Designers and engineers erased the appearance of ribs in the convertible top, by using composite rather than aluminum knuckles, extending the material below the beltline, and revising the stitch lines. The result is a top that appears smooth, taut and carefully tailored, while retaining the sleek roofline of the coupe.

Interior Features

The cabin of the Chevrolet Camaro is oriented more around style than function. The standard cloth bucket seats are good, although the bolstering isn't fully there for hard cornering. It's a tough compromise to make, given the spectrum of Camaro buyers. The low bolsters make getting in and out of the Camaro easier. Excellent leather upholstery is available in black, gray, beige and two-tone Inferno Orange, and interior materials are good.

The front seat slides 8.5 inches and the steering wheel tilts and telescopes, so drivers of all sizes will fit. The stitched leather wrap on the steering wheel is nice; the ZL1 uses a smaller, race-inspired flat-bottomed wheel.

A recessed speedometer and tachometer are set in square housings, a nod to the classic Camaro interior. Between those two big gauges is a driver information center controlled via a stalk on the steering column.

The climate control buttons on the center stack appear to have been designed for looks, and thus aren't as functional as they could or should be. An optional console-mounted gauge package includes oil pressure, oil temperature, volts and transmission fluid temperature. The information is good, although the location down by the driver's knee makes it difficult to see while driving.

The windows are small and the A-pillars are wide, so it makes the cabin feel a bit cave-like. Visibility through the windshield is compromised by the long hood and raked windshield, although careful location of the driver's seat helps. Rear visibility over the driver's shoulder isn't very good, but then it's impossible to make it good with a roofline this sporty.

The trunk is deep, but the opening isn't large and it's almost flat. This compromise is worth it for the handsome rear deck. There's a pass-through to the trunk behind the rear seat, which isn't easy to crawl into, and feels like a pit.

Rear-seat legroom measures 29.9 inches, a distinction, as few cars today break below that 30-inch mark. You'll want to avoid riding in the back seat.

The convertible's soft top is made of thick, durable canvas. An acoustical headliner material is designed to provide a quiet, coupe-like ride when the top is up, and the soft top incorporates a glass rear window and rear window defogger. The power folding convertible top retracts in about 20 seconds. It folds in a simple Z-pattern and latches with a single handle located at the center of the windshield header. The transmission doesn't have to be in Park for the top to be activated, allowing fast lowering while stopped at a red light, or when it starts raining in a dead-stop traffic jam.

Driving Impressions

The Camaro chassis is well-engineered. The rigid structure makes the turn-in precise for a car this size; the grip is secure, and the damping is solid and supple, with both the V6 (FE2 suspension) and firmer V8 (FE3). The front suspension uses struts, and the rear is an independent multi-link that's rubber isolated.

The Camaro is a hefty car, 3860 pounds for the V8 and 3800 for the V6, so the handling couldn't be called nimble, just secure and satisfying. The new Mustang is nearly 300 pounds lighter, and feels it.

We never encountered a harsh moment with the ride, in either the LT or the SS. We spent week in a 426-hp SS in the Pacific Northwest. We found the TAPshift manual automatic transmission does what you tell it to do, nothing more. We love that.

One especially nice thing about the transmission is that when you're in sixth gear on the freeway and lightly accelerate, it won't kick down when it doesn't need to. It uses its sufficient torque.

The Camaro LT with its 3.6-liter V6 shines. The Chevy V6 sounds sweet and gets 30 miles per gallon highway with the 6-speed automatic and optional 2.92 rear axle ratio. With the standard 3.27 gear, it accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds, and will do the quarter mile in 14.4 seconds, which is quick in anyone's book.

Camaro LT will also stop from 60 mph in 128 feet, according to GM, but we've heard of the Camaro stopping in much shorter distances. Surprisingly, the SS with its four-piston Brembo brakes doesn't do much better, but the Brembos can be used harder without fade for repeated hard braking of the sort used on a racetrack. And the vented rotors are huge, 14 inches front and 14.4 inches rear on the SS, compared to the LT's matching fronts and 11.8-inch rears.

The V6 LT with a 6-speed manual gearbox is the most versatile sporty engine-transmission matchup. The gearbox is smooth if not buttery, and easily shifts down into first gear for hairpin turns. Chevrolet says the throws are short, yet there's a Hurst short-throw shifter available as a dealer option. We'll take it. We tested it in the Shelby Mustang, and it made a world of difference.

The Camaro SS is humongous fast, so if you're driving it hard, you're deep into the danger zone with the law or you're on a race track. Its throaty exhaust turns heads. The SS with the manual transmission and 426-horsepower engine revs to 6600 rpm, while the automatic with its 400 horsepower only revs to an underachieving 6000.

Camaro ZL1 delivers supercar performance yet it's quite comfortable for everyday driving on rural roads, around town, and on the highway. At Virginia International Raceway, we found it easy to drive quickly and very predictable, even in some diabolically wet, cold conditions. The car could be drifted easily with power fed in as we accelerated out of the corners onto long, fast straightaways. Braking performance was equally impressive. This is a car that can be driven hard with confidence. Major league fun.

It's hard to say who wins the perennial muscle-car battle between the Camaro, Mustang GT, and Dodge Challenger; those with a favorite aren't likely to change their minds. But a battle of the stats gives the Mustang the edge, with its beautiful new 32-valve 5.0-liter engine. We think it's more enjoyable to drive, too. The Mustang wins the pounds-per-horsepower battle, 8.7 to 9.1 (412/3580 vs. 426/3860), but the Camaro SS still wins in the quarter-mile, 13.0 to 13.2. Not that two tenths of a second makes any difference in how much you enjoy your car.

Summary

The Chevrolet Camaro offers all the classic benefits of a Camaro: striking lines, powerful engines, great transmissions, superb handling and ride and great prices. Interior visibility is limited and the back seats are not for adults, and many interior touches are more for form than function.
