2010 Chevrolet Camaro Overview

In ponycar limbo since 2002, after 35 years of continuous production, the Camaro will resume its attempts to outperform and outsell the Mustang this March 16, when production will resume at GM’s celebrated Oshawa plant in Ontario, Canada. Sticking with tradition, the Camaro will be a 2+2, front-engine, RWD design, with several updates since its debut in 1967.

Available in V6 LS or LT trim and V8 SS, the Camaro comes standard with a four-wheel independent suspension system, variable-rate power steering with axle-forward rack mounting, four-wheel disc brakes, and the Stabilitrak stability control system. SS trims get four-piston upgraded Brembo brake calipers, a more aggressive tuneable suspension, and more.

A V6 and a V8 in two configurations power the upcoming Camaro, depending on transmission chosen. The V6 is a 3.6-liter engine, whose basic design has been employed in other GM models such as the Cadillac CTS, and produces 300 hp with either the six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The V8 is a 6.2-liter and gets a bit of a power boost when equipped with the manual over the automatic, 422 hp versus 400 even, respectively. Due to GM’s active fuel management cylinder deactivation, the V8 is estimated to be capable of up to 23 mpg on the highway - the V6 capable of 26.

Additionally, the Camaro’s price point puts its top-tier version at just over $30,000, which places it squarely under that of its competitors, sadly in both price and performance.

A CarGurus contributor since 2008, Michael started his career writing about cars with the SCCA - winning awards during his time as editor of Top End magazine. Since then, his journalistic travels have taken him from NY to Boston to CA, completing a cross-country tour on a restored vintage Suzuki. While his preference is for fine German automobiles - and the extra leg room they so often afford - his first automobile memories center around impromptu Mustang vs. Corvette races down the local highway, in the backseat of his father's latest acquisition.
