2021 Chevrolet Camaro
Everyone’s favorite muscle car comes back punching with its 2021 Camaro, making some significant changes like standard Wireless Apple CarPlay Android Auto, the removal of the Rally Green metallic and Garnet Red Tintcoat exterior paint colors, and then adding the Wild Cherry Design Package, as well as the available track-centered 1LE teaming up with 10-speed automatic on V-8 SS ponies. As expected, this Chevy car continues to wow us with its performance and overall value.
6.2-L Supercharged V8
Avail. Engine Type
The 2021 Chevrolet Camaro has a great selection of powertrains. Starting off, the LS and LT have a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, it gives out 275 horsepower with 295 horsepower. The LS and LT get a considerable boost with their 3.6-liter V6, as it drives on 335 horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque. The SS has an even more impressive 455 horsepowered 6.2-liter engine with matching numbers to its torque. Of course, nothing can top the supercharged version of the V8, with 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
Driving and Handling
All 2021 Camaro’s come with a 6-speed manual and the optional automatic with rev-matching automatic for V8’s. The ride can be improved by the convertible body, as this does away with various blind-spots once the roof is removed. Simply lower the top with just a push of the button and it will fold easily behind the rear seat. When the roof is up, it does a great job of blocking rain and wind noise.
The car’s athletic features are only accentuated with the new Wild Cherry Design package, this encompasses special forged aluminum wheels in a polished finish with Camaro shield emblem center caps, black metallic hash mark stripes on the fenders, Camaro fender badges, and Camaro floor mats with silver edging.
The 2LT, 3LT, and 2SS’s then get Wild Cherry’s distinctive ground effects, a black or silver center stripe, a fuel door’s carbon-fiber insert, and black suede in the interior.
Some familiarities inhouse of the Camaro are a mix of trendy tech and classic touches like heated seats, touchscreens, a 6-speaker audio system, power seats, a color-filled Driver information center, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Standard comforts involve power windows, cruise control, an 8-way-power driver’s seat and a 7-inch touch-screen audio system that includes the new wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Bluetooth, dual USB ports, AUX input, and Chevrolet’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
Some fun options consist of an automatic transmission with paddle shifters, two different Brembo-brake upgrades, an enhanced audio system with a larger 8-inch touch screen, and an augmented driver-information center. The Camaro SS has available magnetic ride control and dual-mode exhaust system, which are both standard on ZL1 models.
Safety Features and Warranty
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), gave the Camaro a five-star crash-test rating. It also has available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, forward-collision warning, and rear parking sensors.
Chevrolet offers a competitive limited warranty of three years or 36,000 miles of coverage and five years or 60,000 miles of coverage for the powertrain.
