Short History of Chevrolet Camaro

Chevrolet Camaro is one of the most legendary American cars. It was first built in 1966, as a pony car to compete with Ford Mustang. First models shared platform with another famous pony car of that age called Pontiac Firebird. It was revealed on the big press conference in Detroit on which 14 cities were hooked up via telephone lines, which was first time in history somebody did that. First generation Chevy Camaro was produced from 1967 until 1969 and it was available in two body variants, as a convertible and as a coupe. Camaro had 8 years pause in its production, since after fourth generation its sale stats decreased due to the sports car deteriorated market and its powerful Mustang rival.

New Camaro is one of the first GM vehicles from Chevrolet division that's going to receive Cadillac chassis. Same one that we saw on Cadillac CTS and ATS model. This chassis is going to become little longer and narrower in the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. Although it sounds like this leads to some major exterior changes, actually new model is not going to look that different. So the good old broad-shoulder stance and gun-slit windows that we are used to, are here to stay.

Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang went far when it comes to interior styling and comfort. Together with the rumor about the new Cuda, this means that Chevrolet will need to bring some interior refreshments to stay competitive among other popular pony car models. Interior of the new Camaro hasn't been revealed yet, but we expect something radical and futuristic.

Camaro is famous for its wide engine range and 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is going to be no different. Biggest update in the new model will be the introduction of the four cylinder engine in its base version, that's going to boost Camaro's fuel economy. Also since we're talking about turbocharged engine, it is going to come with at least 272 horsepower if Chevy decides to take current CTS and ATS models. Some of the more powerful engine options will be the old 3,5 liter V6 and v8 engine that is able to produce 426 horsepower. These engines will be paired with automatic or manual transmission.

Other Possible Options

Ok, we all know that you expect to see Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger in this section, but instead we will try to find some other sport coupes with similar performance and price. Definitely one of the most affordable and powerful sport coupes is the new Subaru BR-Z. In stead of choosing Challenger, we looked at the new Dodge Charger and realized that with its impressive performance and price of little bit above $26,000 it can surely fit in this class.

Price and Release Date

Release date of the new Camaro will probably come in the end of 2015. Price is not out yet of course, but we think the new model is only going to come with a minor increase. Last year model's price goes from $23,705 for an LS trim level, up to a 72,305 for a Z/28 version that comes with 7,0 liter V8 beast under its hood.

Camaro is a typical blue collar sports car. Depending on the trim  level it is mostly driven by the blue collar wannabes or real pony car enthusiasts. Second group doesn't  give a fuck about their image or the statement their car make. Luckily for the blue collar wannabes girls and people who are not much into cars still consider this model as an upscale sports car, although it can be bought for only 20-something k. So either you work in Pizza Hut, docks or a shady bar, when you enter Chevy Camaro, you become a prosperous young (or little bit older) yuppie whose time has come. We all know the promiscuous girls like that, so enjoy, while you can and thank your Camaro after every successful hunt.



Lot of celebrities drive Chevrolet Camaro, some of them are: Jay Leno, James Hatfield from Metallica  used to drive one, Patrick Willis from SF 49ers, Victor Martinez from Detroit Tigers, Asdurbal Cabrera from Cleveland Indians, David Bechkam, Lebron James, Drumma Boy, Lil Boosie, Nate Clemens and Tiger Woods etc. Some people say that Brad Pitt drives Camaro SS. Camaro has also been a star in many Hollywood movies. Some of the most famous ones are: Once a Thief, Remember the Titans, Summer of Sam, Fast and Furious and Gumball Rally. There's also a comic book, cartoon and movie hero called Bumblebee, from Transformers saga. Unfortunately Chevrolet Camaro is star of one more film, this time a documentary feature from director Werner Herzog, that tells a sad story about two young men who killed 3 people and wounded several police officers in an attempt to steal a red Camaro from one of the victim. This documentary feature is called Into the Abyss and it won BFI Award on 2011 London Film festival for the Best Documentary.

What Do Girls Think About Chevrolet Camaro?

Most girls think that this car looks like its the fastest car ever made. They love it, they want you to take them for a spin and they are not taking ''no'' for an answer. Those are most of the ''normal'' girls out there, and there are the girls I know. Girls I talked to while writing this review have a lot of complaints on Camaro's design and people who own it. One girl told me that she doesn't like its front fascia and that its sharp edges in the front doesn't go well with skirt and high heels she likes to wear. Other girl told me that this is the car that's mostly driven by the rich kids and old geezers. Well, at least she proved my point about girls thinking this car is actually expensive, and not knowing it is one of the cheapest sport coupes on the market. Anyway it is little bit odd to find out that not all girls like guys who drive sport coupes. Maybe future Casanovas will drive mini-vans? This is a weird world!
