What's New for Camaro in 2013

The Camaro LS, LT, and SS get new eighteen- and twenty-inch wheel designs, standard hill-start assist, and a ZL1-style shift knob on manual-equipped models. The SS can now be equipped with a dual-mode exhaust and the 1LE performance package. All V-8 models receive electric steering, revised rear suspension geometry, and a smaller steering wheel. The ZL1 is now available as a convertible...more


Now in its third year, the Camaro is one of the most attractive vehicles to come out of the retro-design craze that swept through the industry in the past decade. Its taut, sleek body and muscular stance manage to evoke forty years of Camaro history yet look thoroughly modern. Unfortunately, it looks better than it performs; numb steering and a hefty curb weight mean that the Camaro is more of a Sunday cruiser than a corner carver. The ZL1 coupe and the new-for-2013 convertible help legitimize GM’s pony car somewhat. Both are motivated by a 580-hp, 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 mated to a six-speed manual shifter or an optional six-speed automatic. They come with standard performance features such as magnetorheological dampers, the Performance Traction Management system from the Corvette ZR1, and 20-inch Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires. The Camaro SS—now with electric steering—can be fitted with the new 1LE package that adds a full range of performance add-ons, including larger antiroll bars and retuned dampers. Unfortunately, the interior is a mixed bag. The overall look is fairly convincing, but inconsistent fit and finish and some clumsy ergonomics lag behind the competition. Despite that, if you are looking for style with heritage and tons of street presence, nothing in this class does it better than the Camaro.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags are standard, along with ABS, traction and stability control, and a tire-pressure monitoring system. A backup camera and rear-mounted parking sensors are optional.
