2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS

2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS

The new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. The new Camaro will be offered with a choice of two engines, a 300 hp (224 kW) 3.6 liter V6 unit for the LS and LT models, and a 422 hp (315 kW) V8 powerplant for the SS. Both engines will be available with six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. Fuel consumption is estimated at 27 mpg (highway) for the V6 and 23 mpg for the V8.

Some of the new Camaro’s features are 10 available exterior colors, four-wheel independent suspension system, four-wheel disc brake systems standard on all models, including four-piston Brembo calipers on SS models, StabiliTrak stability control system and traction control standard on all models, 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels and RS appearance package available on LT and SS, including HID headlamps with integrated halo rings, spoiler, specific taillamps and 20-inch wheels.

The high-performance Camaro SS is equipped with a powerful 6.2L V-8, with a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Standard, manual transmission-equipped models receive the LS3 engine, estimated at 422 horsepower (315 kW) and 408 lb.-ft. of torque (553 Nm). The LS3 debuted on the 2008 Corvette and uses high-flow cylinder heads based on the Corvette Z06’s LS7 engine to enable great low-end torque and high-rpm power. It is paired with a TR6060 six-speed transmission.

A new, L99 V-8 engine is used on automatic transmission-equipped SS models. It is based on the LS3 and carries all of its high-performance design features, but also includes GM’s fuel-saving Active Fuel Management feature. It enables the engine to run on only four cylinders during light-load driving conditions, such as highway cruising, to improve fuel economy. The V-8 is estimated at 400 horsepower (299 kW) and 395 lb.-ft. of torque (535 Nm); and it is matched with a Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed transmission. This combination delivers an estimated 23 mpg on the highway.

It's has a bit wider stance, which helps counteract the extra weight it carries compared to the Mustang, keeping body roll to a minimum through a tight turn. And the extra power helps you muscle through corners.

    I just saw the new Camaro in black. It's a pretty sweet looking ride. The new looking headlights and front end really make the car look aggressive.
