The 2013 Camaro has been given several notable updates. Most noticeable is the 1LE performance package available on the Camaro SS. Featuring stiffer springs and shock absorbers, a shorter final drive ratio, high performance tires and a flat black hood, the 1LE Camaro sacrifices a little bit of comfort for stronger, track-oriented performance. Other updates to the Camaro include Hill Start Assist on all manual transmission equipped Camaros, a nicer leather shift knob and updates to the optional navigation system. SS Camaros receive electronic power steering and an optional dual mode exhaust.
Strong acceleration; great handling; rip-roaring muscle-car look and feel; daring design inside and out; good highway efficiency
The Chevrolet Camaro is a modern take on GM's legendary muscle-car, offering strong rear-wheel-drive performance in a low coupe or convertible body style. Relative to the other pony cars like the Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger, the Camaro performs athletically, although it gives up some outward visibility for the chunky, bold design. The standout of the model line remains the Camaro SS Coupe for performance and handling approaching that of an exotic car. But Camaro Convertibles are a strong value as well and provide a different sort of fun. For the rare driver wanting to better the performance of high-end exotics, the ZL1 provides outrageous horsepower numbers. While it's expensive for a Camaro, it's faster than cars costing two or three times as much.
