Vehicle Overview

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.
