I purchased a 2010 Camaro LS, the bare minimum Camaro available. Don't let the minimal price tag deceive you. The Camaro LS is a quality-built champion of American muscle, despite packing a V6 and cloth interior.
Allow me to explain. The Camaro LS includes the same high-quality cloth featured in its big brother trims, the 1LT and 1SS. The cloth is durable, strong, and a rich black, accented by simple stitching and vertical lines on the inserts. The dash features quality design, a beautiful speedo and tach, and a gray insert. The gray insert, probably the cheapest part of the car, feels smooth and wraps around the doors with the fit and finish of a luxury car. Quality was clearly the most important concern at GM when making the Camaro.
On the outside, the fog lamp housings fill with stylish plastic inserts that keep the style of the car consistent. The front end is similar, looking exactly like the concept released in 2006. There is no spoiler, and the wheels are steel, but they look good without upgrades. All it really needs is a slightly lower stance to compliment the smaller wheels. By the way, these smaller wheels are still 18 inches.
This Chevrolet boasts a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic with TAPshift, a feature on the rear of the steering wheel. Even the automatic can be shifted manually as if it were a European exotic. The LLT V6 engine powers the beast to performance scores in the quarter mile that exceed classic Camaros, including the legendary first generation's best factory builds.
If GM could have done anything better, they would have. This car is menacing and classy, even when bought as a bare minimum. You'll know you bought the right car when someone driving a vehicle 3 or 4 times your price tag can't stop staring.
