Chevrolet Camaro test drive coming up!


Finally!

I have been waiting for this car since I saw the stunning concept.
I will be driving both the V6 and the V8 versions. In a couple of weeks. (At least that’s the plan so far)
They will be my daily drivers for 2 weeks.

My experience so far was just sitting in one of them at the auto show.
The thing I noticed the most was the light feeling of the door with the window down.
The rest of the interior was fine, considering the car starts at about $23000. And I am not a big fan of the Mustang interior anyway…

So if you have any questions, go ahead.

On another note, my future test drives will also include a Hyundai Genesis coupe, as well as the new Opel Astra and the Insignia. Which will both make it into the US as Buicks.
Should be interesting…

  1. I absolutely LOVE the mustang. I absolutely LOVE the Challenger. The Camero, not so much. This new one is much sharper than the 1968-72-era on which it's based; but I still like the other 2 better. Too bad the Japs or Koreans can't seem to build anything with the "CHARISMA" of American Muscle. I suppose the Camero & Mustang will be more "reliable" than the Challenger (since Ford & GM both are beating the Japanese at the "reliability" & "quality" games these days.) But there's just something about the Challenger that sets it apart from the crowd more than Mustang or Camero for me. And that's really what American Muscle is all about. Style. Image. Performance.

    Of course if you gave me all 3, I would certainly keep them all!!!

  2. I think the Camaro looks great, but the interior is the biggest letdown.

    It is like the Challenger, it looks great on the exterior but they ran out of funds for the interior.

    The new 2010/11 Mustang is a complete package.

  3. I just drove one of my clients 2010 Camaro today and it was awesome, great acceleration but a major letdown was the lack of a navigation/infotainment system and that bland and generic interior. IMO the 2010 Mustang and the Infinity G37 are much better cars in that category.

  4. i sat in the camaro recently and was freaked out at how BAD the visibility was. I'm talking EVERY window…

  5. Those of you complaining about no navigation/infotainment, The Camaro is about DRIVING! It does that VERY well and looks great doing it! Also, it has an independant rear suspention unlike the Mustang! The Mustang can have it's interior, I'll take the proper suspention for a car like this anyday!

  6. Chevy really need to fix the interior fast. The Malibu interior is better looking, in fact aside from any Chrysler product, almost any new car has a better dashboard. I can't imagine what they were thinking when they designed it.

  7. It's only fair to warn you, Vince – you're going to love this car. I had one as a rental in LA earlier this year, and even in stripped-down rental car trim, it was awesome. I was blown away by how much pick-up and power the V6 had, the handling was superior, and the simplicity of the interior was refreshing. You're not going to want to give it back!

    Uhhhmmmm.

    The Mustang GT with the track pack will obliterate the SS, even without a "proper" suspension.

    It is flat out ridiculous that it the Camaro isn't offered with navigation.
