2012 Chevrolet Camaro
2012 Chevrolet Camaro
Now in its third year, the redesigned Camaro is one of the most attractive vehicles to come out of the retro design craze that swept through the automotive industry in the last decade. Its taut, sleek body and muscular stance manage to evoke forty years of Camaro history yet look thoroughly modern. Unfortunately, it looks better than it performs; numb steering and a hefty curb weight mean that the Camaro is more of a Sunday cruiser than a corner carver, especially in convertible form. But Chevy hopes to put those criticisms to rest with the Camaro ZL1, which is motivated by the same supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that powers the Cadillac CTS-V but here produces 580 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque. The big V-8 is mated to a six-speed manual short-throw shifter or an optional six-speed automatic. Chevy added other features that could finally make the Camaro a true performance car, such as magnetorheological dampers, the Performance Traction Management system borrowed from the Corvette ZR1, electric power steering in place of the standard hydraulic setup, and twenty-inch Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires developed specifically for the ZL1. Chevy made extensive revisions to the base engine, which is now lighter and more powerful. Inside, the retro bent continues but with mixed results. The cabin has a fairly convincing look overall, but inconsistent fit and finish and somewhat clumsy ergonomics lag behind what is offered in the competition. But if you are looking for style with heritage and tons of street presence, nothing in this class does it better than the Camaro.
2014 Chevrolet SS Badge1
Chevrolet's SS badge has a long and storied history -- many cars have been worthy of the legendary "Super Sport," while others (remember the Malibu Maxx SS?) were certainly not. In honor of the revival of the SS badge for the 2014 Chevrolet SS rear-wheel drive sedan, which debuts this weekend, we have rounded up our favorite 10 SS-badged Chevys from over the years. Check them out below.
1967 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept Rear View1
The muscle-bound 2012 COPO Camaro Convertible isn’t the only performance vehicle Chevrolet’s bringing to the 2012 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Here’s a quick look at a few other one-off Corvettes and Camaros heading to this year’s SEMA show.
2012 Chevrolet COPO Camaro Convertible Front View
Although we expected most of the drag-prepped 2012 Chevrolet COPO Camaros to be more or less identical, Chevrolet threw a bow tie-shaped wrench into that assumption this morning at the 2012 SEMA Show: the last two 2012 COPO Camaros will be convertibles, and one will be auctioned off for charity.
2013 Chevrolet Camaro NASCAR Nationwide Car Front Three Quarters View 2
Chevrolet is modeling its 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup car after the forthcoming 2014 SS sedan, but it’s taking a little different tact for its 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series car, and modeling it after a 2013 Camaro.
2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 And 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Front View On Track
As we noted in our comparison test between the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, the muscle car wars never end. Heck, neither does our test, for that matter, as we now have some visceral footage of us putting the two through their paces on the road, strip, and track – albeit not necessarily in that order.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION
Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling all 2010-2014 Chevrolet Camaro vehicles manufactured December 3, 2008 to May 23, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the driver may accidentally hit the ignition key with their knee, unintentionally knocking the key out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequences

Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will remove the key blade from the original flip key/RKE transmitter assemblies, and provide two new keys and two key rings per key. The recall began August 25, 2014. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 14294.
