The mean-spirited, muscle-bound 2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE showed up to the party looking for a fight, but not with just any opponent. This is strictly a grudge match with its track-tuned nemesis, the Ford Mustang Boss 302, says Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman. With styling flourishes like a matte black hood, spoiler, rear diffuser and 20-inch wheels, the SS 1LE aims for intimidation while its roaring 6.2-liter V-8 — good for 426 horsepower and a 4.5-second zero-to-60 time — reiterates its readiness to rumble. Could the nearly $6,000-cheaper Camaro steal the Boss' job? Read Bragman's review and decide.
