Ever since its debut in 1966, muscle car lovers have always been drawn to the Camaro. The 2012 Camaro should be no different for today’s muscle/sport car enthusiast. However, unlike the Camaros of 45 years ago, the interior of today’s model has been designed to be just as enjoyable and majestic as the exterior and engine. Inside the car, drivers will find complete luxury, with a new-and-improved steering wheel, auxiliary gauges, and leather seats. The steering wheel upgrade includes a sleeker and more comfortable design, included with indented thumb grips. As for the body design, the engineers at Chevy retained that classic Camaro look with an elongated hood, complimented by a short rear deck.
Now we get to the heart of the beast – the engine. This lovely lady boasts 323 horses, 30 highway MPG, and a dual overhead cam engine, all packed into a V6 engine. However, if this doesn’t satisfy your thirst for raw power, Chevy also makes a 6.2 liter V8 engine with 426 horses under the hood. For a near-perfect balance between the two, the 2012 SS has a 6-speed automatic transmission with 400 horses under the hood, all-the-while retaining an impressive 24 MPG on the highway. However, we know that many of you are die-hard stick guys (and gals) so you need not worry. The SS also comes in a manual transmission with Launch Control and new-and-improved stabilizer bars for the ultimate handling performance.
The handling of the 2012 Camaro is one of the first things most drivers notice as a change for the better. The suspension is designed to stick tight to turns and adjust to precarious terrain such as black ice. Engineers at Chevrolet helped to achieve this with the implementation of an independent rear suspension.
As far as comfort of riding goes, unlike some models of the past, the driver won’t be the only one riding in absolute comfort. Now, the passenger can also adjust their 6-power seat to custom fit their preferences. This is the new standard in each and every LT and SS coupe.
Additionally, this prized coupe is available in 9 different colors, ranging from Summit White to Inferno Orange Metallic. Nighttime safety was also in the front of the engineer’s minds when they gave it combination HID/LED headlights, providing drivers with optimal during non-daylight hours. The Camaro is also equipped with all the bells-and-whistles, the 2012 Camaro comes with Rear Vision Camera, Head-Up Display on the lower left corner of the windshield (yes, even the radio station), GPS navigation and much more. So what’s not to love? Get out there and test-drive one for yourself today. Chances are you’ll be coming home with a new Camaro.
