The 2013 Camaro comes in a whopping seven trim levels, and they are: 1LS, 2LS, 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, 2SS, ZL1. Essentially, the LS is the base level, with the 1LS offering only basic features and the 2LS offering up a few extra creature comforts. The LT trim is the mid-level trim with the 1LT offering upgraded wheels and other aesthetics and the 2LT offering up leather and other premium goodies. The SS trim level is the performance model with the 1SS keeping the features very basic, so the less affluent buyer can still have some fun, and the 2SS model offers up all of the bells and whistles. The ZL1 is the ultra-high-performance model that comes with nearly every option that Chevy has to offer on the Camaro and a 1.9-liter supercharger strapped to its V-8 engine.

Competition for the Camaro is stiff, as performance coupes are fairly common. The arch nemesis of the Camaro is the 2013 Ford Mustang, which runs from $22,200 Mustang V6 and its 305-horsepower, 37-liter V-6 engine to the wild Mustang Shelby GT500, which runs $54,200 and boasts an intense 662-horsepower, 5.8-liter V-8 engine. Next in line is the 2013 Dodge Challenger, which ranges from its $25,795 SXT trim level and its 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 to the SRT8 trim level that boasts a monstrous 470-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 at a $43,775 price tag. The final performance coupe for the comparison would be the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, which carries a $26,250 base price and a 274-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine at its base level and runs up to a $33,000 price tag that boasts a 348-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine that gets the coupe to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds.
The Camaro certainly has an eclectic group of competitors, so it needs to offer up features that will please a wide range of buyers.
