The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro continues with the current-generation of this iconic sports car. The Camaro is most well known for its nostalgic past, fast-paced and muscular look, and affordable pony car performance.
The ZL1 performance model introduced last year gets a new 1LE Extreme Track Performance package add-on option this year. The 2018 Camaro also sees the addition of a new base-upgrade 1LS trim point.
The 2018 Camaro is broken into four basic variants, each designated by an engine variant. The base model LS and LT models come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the RS comes with a V6, the SS with a 6.2-liter V8, and the ZL with a supercharged V8. Both coupe and convertible body styles are available in most of the Camaro's six trim levels. All Camaro models are rear-wheel drive with seating for up to four in a 2+2 configuration. Some packages offer a rear-seat delete option.
The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro comes in enough flavors that most sports buyers will find a good match for their wants. The turbo-four offers good driveability as an everyday car with a sports car look. The V6 is more powerful than it might seem to be and motivates the Camaro well, while the V8 options are all about muscle. The Camaro keeps its reputation for being the affordable, typical sports car centered on American-style performance at all levels.
There's a lot to like about today's Chevrolet Camaro and more than a few reasons for sports car buyers to consider it. There are downsides as well, so buyers should be aware of what they're after.
