What Is the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro?

The Camaro is Chevrolet's answer to the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger: a rear-wheel-drive, four-seat coupe or convertible that offers several high-performance variants. Engine choices includes a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 275 horsepower; a 335-hp, 3.6-liter V-6; a 455-hp, 6.2-liter V-8; or a 650-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. All engines come with a standard six-speed manual transmission. A 10-speed automatic is optional for the V-8s, and an eight-speed automatic is available for the others.

What's New on the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro?

All trim levels except the ZL1 have new front styling and lighting. All versions get a new rear look with updated taillamps. A new multimedia system comes with a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen, depending on the model. A new Turbo 1LE Package with the turbocharged four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual has Camaro SS suspension components, 20-inch wheels and a nearly 50:50, front-to-rear, weight distribution. A 10-speed automatic replaces an eight-speed automatic as the SS' optional transmission. Forward collision warning and a high-definition rearview camera mirror are available.

What Features in the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Are Most Important?

With performance and styling the Camaro's main attractions, the range of engines and the choice of a manual or automatic transmission are plusses. The Camaro also has handling and braking capability to match its acceleration.

Should I Buy the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro?

Sure, if performance and sleek styling are far more important than fuel economy, passenger room and cargo space (and just about every other practical consideration). The Camaro has plenty of attributes to satisfy enthusiasts, but unless you're a died-in-the-wool Chevy loyalist, check out the Ford Mustang for comparison. Ford and Chevy are trying to outdo each other with these cars, and picking a winner may come down to brand preference or styling.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
