The Camaro is a rear-wheel-drive performance car whose lineage dates to the 1960s. Offered in coupe and convertible body styles, the Camaro is available with V-6 or V-8 power. A high-performance ZL1 edition powered by a 580-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 is also available in either body style, and for 2014 Chevrolet has resurrected the Z/28 model as a coupe with a 505-hp, 7.0-liter V-8. The Camaro competes with other retro-inspired muscle cars including the Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang.

New for 2014
The Camaro receives several tweaks including new front and rear styling with redesigned headlamps and LED taillights. There's also a new trunk lid and rear spoiler. SS trim levels get a unique hood and the RS version has a unique grille. The 1LE Performance Package available on SS models gains a unique rear spoiler. The driver information center and available head-up display gain color readouts. Recaro-brand front seats are a new option for the SS and ZL1 coupes.
Under the Hood
The Camaro convertible is available with V-6 or V-8 power and a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. It retains the sleek, wide stance of the coupe and is offered with a choice of 18-, 19-, 20- or 21-inch wheels.
Available as a coupe or convertible, the Camaro ZL1 aims straight for the Ford Shelby GT500 with its 580-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine that makes 556 pounds-feet of torque. All that power is routed to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic with three different modes: Drive, Sport and Manual. The manual transmission also comes with Launch Control, and GM's Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension is standard. It includes three modes: Tour, Sport and Track.
Back to top
The original 1967 Z/28 was designed for racing, and Chevrolet says the 2014 edition also focuses on track capability. It comes only as a coupe with a six-speed manual transmission and aerodynamics optimized for high-speed driving. It saves weight by using a lighter battery and making air conditioning optional.
