Chevrolet Camaro is a brawny muscle car in the truest sense: a two-door coupé in left-hand drive only and equipped with a 6.2-litre V8 engine.

The interior was several levels better than what was in the fourth-gen, but it wasn’t long before annoyances popped up. The new steering wheel is also a nice size, and the D shape provides for extra leg clearance.
The rest of the interior was very carefully thought out in terms of ergonomics, but more importantly the Camaro now has many of the technical tidbits from the Corvette, so you no longer have to feel like you “settled for a Camaro.”
The interior is available in five color choices, but no matter what you choose you’ll find that everything from the stitching to the material choices are equal to, or better than, what was in the 2015.
The lighting package option is pretty cool and includes doorsills that light up with the logo.

The Camaro’s 2.0-liter engine is still meaty enough to scoot from zero to 60 mph in less than six seconds.
The truly power hungry will want to direct their attention to the V8 options, starting with the naturally aspirated 455-horsepower 6.2-liter engine under the hood of the 2017 Camaro SS.
For those who prefer to select their own gears, test drivers say the Camaro’s six-speed manual transmission shifts cleanly.
