The Chevrolet Camaro was launched to properly battle out the muscle car revolution of the 1960s. Back then, the Camaro launched a distinctive look with ripped styling cues that set the trend of others to follow. Back in late 2009, GM relaunched the Camaro and created a successful throwback to the original with styling cues that mimicked the original. As a product improvement, Chevrolet has given the Camaro a nip and tuck, and introduces several variations.
This week, General Motors and my friends at Chevrolet have once again made my week by dropping off the latest SS model. In bright yellow, this new Camaro doesn’t go unnoticed and if you mix in the black matte hood, with matching 19″ wheels, it’s apparent this Camaro is ready for the road and track. Under the hood, Chevrolet’s efficient, yet monstrous 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 remains present and promises the best in performance and value.
Building upon the reputable value proposition, the interior also reinforces the stated. An upgraded interior from the pre-work facelift includes upgraded materials and revamped controls. Also present was the race inspired Alcantara front seats that are properly supported with aggressive side bolsters promising to keep all passengers snug while pushing through even the sharpest of curves. OnStar is available for offering driving direction assistance with the additional reinforcement of safety peace of mind.
Driving the Camaro SS fully supports the idea of what driving a muscle sports car is all about. Pushing the key into the steering column ignites the raw power of a true American V8 engine. Push in the clutch, and click the SS into gear, and invigorate your soul by rowing through each gear with ease. The instantaneous rush is enough to throw passengers back in their seats.
The Chevrolet Camaro had created a legacy that associates its own brand image to be that of consistent mainstream discussion. The fifth generation Camaro stands for a nostalgic staple of the industry that has reignited many Camaro enthusiasts from yesteryear, while creating an all-new fan base.
