Founded in 1911 by race car driver Louis Chevrolet, the Chevrolet Motor Company was bought by General Motors just seven years later. Distinguished by the bowtie emblem its cars have carried since 1914, Chevrolet remains one of GM’s best-known brands. Chevrolet has manufactured several iconic American cars, among them the Corvette (introduced in 1953) and the Camaro (introduced in 1966). Today, its most popular models include the fuel-efficient Cruze, the sleek Impala and the Tahoe SUV.
About the Chevrolet Camaro
Introduced in 1966 to compete with the popular Ford Mustang, the Chevy Camaro has become an iconic American muscle car. After a seven-year hiatus in production, the Camaro roared back onto the scene in 2009. The 2013 Camaro coupe is available in six trims, from base 1LS to the loaded 2SS. A convertible version is also available in four trims, as well as the turbocharged ZL1 coupe and convertible. And for collectors, Chevrolet released a limited-edition Hot Wheels Camaro as well as an alluring blue Dusk edition.
How do you choose?
The 1LS has a 323-horsepower V6 engine, while the 1SS and 2SS have a V8 under the hood. The 1LS includes remote keyless entry and a theft-deterrent system. The 2SS adds heated front seats, heated power mirrors, a Boston Acoustics sound system, performance suspension and more. The 1SS and 2SS also come with techy features such as the Head-Up Display, which projects speed and stats on the windshield, and Chevrolet MyLink, an on-board infotainment system that connects with your smartphone. Options include a power sunroof, ground effects package and sporty striping.
The 2014 Camaro “carries the classic Camaro qualities of tire-spinning performance and a reasonable price,” Edmunds.com says. And “despite some significant practical drawbacks, it makes for a decent everyday driver.” Those drawbacks include limited driver visibility, a tiny backseat and less-than-luxe interior.

It would be a shame if all that horsepower was wasted on a daily commute. The Chevrolet Camaro gets its turn on the track in the Grand Am Road Racing Series, which includes the iconic Rolex 24 at Daytona endurance race and a variety of races held across the United States and Canada. The Camaro competes in the Grand Touring division against sports cars from Porsche, BMW, Ford and other makers. You’ll also find the Camaro going grille-to-grille with the Ford Mustang in the National Auto Sport Association’s Pony Car racing series.
Chevrolet Camaro Environmental Impact
The Chevrolet Camaro gets surprisingly good gas mileage — if you opt for the automatic 2LS, which delivers 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The V-8 Camaro’s mpg drops to around 15 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. Chevrolet also touts the responsible manufacturing of the Camaro. The transmission facilities are landfill-free, and the one in Toledo, Ohio, is partially powered by landfill gas. Some water and engine-air deflectors are manufactured with more than 99 percent recycled content, and the entire Camaro is 85 percent recyclable — once you’re done driving it, of course.
