With so many new models introduced every year, it can be easy to look over the classics. However, Chevrolet has all but guaranteed one can’t look past the 2012 Camaro, as this model makes a strong statement with its powerful engine, retro-inspired yet modern-looking appearance, and surprisingly efficient engine. The 2012 Camaro is an attractive sports car that shows that ‘classics’ don’t have to be boring and can in fact be quite the opposite.
New for 2012 is the ZL1 edition, an upgrade from the Camaro’s standard and SS models that offers an incredible 580 horsepower. This high-performance package has enhanced styling and sports-tuned handling to make sure drivers feel as if they own the road. Of course, the other editions of the 2012 Camaro aren’t exactly slacking; the SS model offers a 426-horsepower V8 rig, while the standard model provides a 323-horsepower V6, an upgrade from the 2011 edition.
Choosing the least powerful engine actually provides a benefit of its own, as this is the most fuel-efficient rig at 29 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg in the city. Even this base model is well-appointed, with standard Bluetooth, satellite radio, MP3 player, stability control and traction control.
Whether you opt for the Camaro coupe or the convertible in the SS, ZL1 or base model edition, you’ll be able to enjoy a luxurious ride in one of the most well-respected American muscle cars in recent memory, upgraded to feature the newest amenities and impressive fuel economy.
