Astonishing performance from the ‘standard’ Camaro SS V8 Automatic: 0-60mph – 4.0 seconds / Top speed 180mph !
The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro offers retro-tinged styling complemented by modern-day features and performance. Chevy offers a wide range of variants, from the base 1LT — that still manages to make 275 horsepower — all the way up to the smokin’ hot ZL1. Another plus: There’s still a Camaro convertible.
The 2019 coupe also gets an optional 10-speed automatic on the SS. Chevy has upgraded its infotainment system, as well.
If you haven’t driven the Camaro in a while you’re in for a surprise. The latest version of the Chevy muscle car is smaller, lighter and delivers handling more in line with what you might expect out of a European sports coupe. That said, it still packs a visceral punch whenever you smack the throttle. At 275 horsepower, even the base turbocharged 4-cylinder version matches the output of a V-8 Camaro from a few generations back. The latest-generation SS bumps that up to 455 horsepower with its 6.2-liter 8-banger. And if you really want to feel yourself thrust into the back of your seat, you’ll be well advised to consider the blindingly fast ZL1 with its supercharged version of that V-8 punching the horsepower up to 650.
Available with a 335-horsepower V6 or on the 455-horsepower V8-powered Camaro SS, the 1LE’s more aggressive suspension betters the Camaro’s handling and gives it track-day capability. The package includes Brembo brakes, sticky Goodyear Eagle F1 tires and the 1LE’s signature black hood. Recaro seats are also available. A 1LT package is now available for the Camaro LT Coupe.
While the muscle car has shown surprising resilience, convertibles have clearly become an endangered species. But Chevy continues to offer a rag-top option that retains the silhouette of the coupe. It’s a one-touch affair, quick to raise and lower, and effectively seals out the rain. It’s also reasonably quiet.
While the Camaro body harkens back to the 1960s’ era, the interior is a much more modern affair. You do suffer from somewhat limited visibility, much like its pony-car rivals, but Chevy has added useful tech features, like blind-spot detection, to help overcome that concern. On the tech front, the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro gets the bow-tie brand’s 3rd-generation infotainment technology, operated through a 7- or 8-inch touch screen, depending upon model. Seats are comfortable and supportive, with lots of bolstering on sport packages. Heated and ventilated front power seats are standard on the 2LT trim. As always, the back seat is something of a penalty box for adults.
For 2019 Chevrolet Camaro the overall look of the 6th-generation Camaro continues to harken back to the classic 1969 edition, one of the most attractive muscle cars ever. The thinner headlights give the 2019 model a menacing squint, reinforced by the bulging hindquarters and sweptback roof. The ZL1 is the only 2019 version not to get the facelift.
There are four engines available in the 2019 Camaro. There’s the standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, with a muscular 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Step up to the 3.6-liter V6 with 335 horsepower; it offers more power but less torque than the 4-cylinder, and offers cylinder deactivation for better fuel economy. But a Camaro needs a V8, and in the Camaro SS there’s the 6.2-liter V8, shared with the Corvette, pumping out 455 horsepower. Step up to the Camaro ZL1 and you’re looking at a 650-horsepower supercharged version, making it the most powerful Camaro ever. All engines connect to a 6-speed manual that includes automatic rev matching on V8 models or an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters; Camaro ZL1 models get an optional 10-speed automatic.
