2012 Chevrolet Camaro Review

Overview
The Camaro was developed to be 21st century on every level. Because these days it’s not enough for a sports car to look great and go fast. It also has to be efficient and technologically savvy. An amazing 323 horsepower and an EPA estimated 29 mile per gallon highway that’s the output of the Camaro 3.6 liter direct injection V6 engine. An available 6-speed automatic transmission equipped with steering wheel-mounted TAPshift controls allows clutchless manual shifting for power when you need it — and when don’t you? Then there’s the 6.2 liter V8 engine in the Camaro SS that makes apologies to no one. Engineered for precise handling dynamics independent rear suspension and variable-ratio power steering give Camaro its smooth sophisticated drive. Camaro maintains road manners you’d associate with German performance sedans. Start with the seats — always a good barometer of quality and attention to detail in any car. The deep-dish steering wheel is purposeful and fits perfectly in your hands. Two boldly lit gauges flank a helpful Driver Information Center display. A low-mounted four- pack of auxiliary gauges standard on 2LT and 2SS — look cool but also give you instant feedback. Perfect for a car that doesn’t like to wait. From its awe-inspiring design to its outstanding performance to its impressive efficiency the 2012 Camaro has got it all.
