The long-awaited 2010 Chevrolet Camaro marks a return of one
of GM's most iconic models. Unlike the previous 4th generation
Camaro which was an evolution model developed from the prior
5th generation Camaro is designed from a clean slate.
The retro styling is modeled on the original 1960's muscle car.
But underneath, the Camaro is all-new - aside from the powertrain.
Powering the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro is a choice of engines, including
a 300 horsepower 3.6 litre V6, and a 422 horsepower 6.2 litre
V8. Coupled to the engine is a choice of manual or automatic
6-speed transmissions driving the rear wheels.
Weighing in at around 1700 kgs (3750 lbs) the 5th generation
Camaro is not a lightweight sports car. Although the 52/48 front/rear
weight distribution should help improve the handling. As will
fully independent suspension. The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro also
features a StabiliTrak stability control system to keep the
back end in line. For top spec models the 210 Camaro is equipped
with Brembo performance brakes.
Unfortunately the interior of the fifth generation Chevrolet
Camaro is not as nice as the stunning exterior. Vast expanses
of black plastic are an eyesore, and while the distinctive gauge
cluster, blue LED lighting and center console mounted ancillary
gauges are styled to be reminiscent of the original 1960s Camaro,
they somehow don't quite work in a 21st century car.
However, despite the disappointing interior, the 2010 Camaro
should prove to be a worthy competitor to the Ford Mustang and
Dodge Challenger. Even if it was a little late to the party.
