Overview

While it started off as a pony car, the Chevrolet Camaro is now pretty much an out-and-out sports car with excellent handling and a plethora of engine options. For 2018, it gets even more sporting, with a high-performance version of the already high-performance ZL1trim.

What's New for 2018

Apart from the addition of the 1LE track package to the ZL1 variant, there’s no other notable change to the Camaro for 2018.

Chevrolet Camaro

Choosing Your Chevrolet Camaro

The Camaro is sold in several trim levels — LS, 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, 2SS, ZL1 — and all can be had as a coupe or a convertible. Rear-wheel drive is, naturally, the only way to fly.

The 1LS, 1LT and 2LT pack a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine as standard, making 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The LS is only available with a six-speed manual transmission, while the LT1 gets a standard eight-speed automatic only – the LT2 offers the six-speed stick as standard and the eight-speed auto as an optional extra. Also available on all the three variants is a 3.6-liter V6 unit ($1,495) that develops 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque

Moving up the range, you have the Camaro SS, with its mammoth 6.2-liter V8 churning out 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual box is standard, with the eight-speed automatic a $1,495 option. The run to 60 miles per hour takes just 4.5 seconds.

Finally, there’s the track-focused Camaro ZL1 — it gets a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that has 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. The six-speed manual gearbox remains standard and for the automatic, there is a 10-speed unit that costs $2,395. The Camaro ZL1 sprints to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds.

All Camaro models are available with a huge range of visual upgrades – stripe packages and accessory catalog wheels – that grant owners broader customization abilities than either of the competitors from Ford or Dodge.

Chevrolet Camaro

1LS

The Camaro LS starts at $26,900 for the coupe (including $995 destination charges) and $32,900 for the convertible.

Standard features include a six-speed manual gearbox, 18-inch wheels, LED running lights, front bucket seats with an eight-way power adjustable driver seat, a rear-view camera, cruise control, keyless entry with push-button start, and a seven-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. There is no option for the eight-speed automatic transmission.

Optional packages include the RS Package ($1,950), which adds 20-inch wheels, run-flat tires, HID headlights, LED taillights and a boot-lid spoiler, the Technology Package ($900), which adds an upgraded eight-inch infotainment system, and Bose audio system, and the 1LE Track Package ($4,500) that includes aerodynamic add-ons, four-piston Brembo front brakes, an updated suspension and a performance exhaust. It’s worth noting though that the V6 engine and coupe body-style are pre-requisite for the Track pack.

Chevrolet Camaro

1LT

The Camaro 1LT will cost you $27,695 for the coupe and $33,695 for the convertible. The V6 engine continues to be a $1,495 option. Over the 1LS, the 1LT gets an eight-speed automatic gearbox with remote start as standard. Otherwise the features and the optional items are more-or-less the same

Chevrolet Camaro

2LT

The Camaro 2LT retails at $31,495 for the coupe and $36,695 for the convertible. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, but you will have to fork out $1,495 for the automatic.

New components on the 2LT trim are mainly found inside the cabin, with an eight-inch infotainment system, Bose audio, heated and ventilated front seats, and dual-zone climate control.

Chevrolet offers a $2,800 Convenience and Lighting Package, which will give you wireless charging, a heated steering wheel, head-up display, interior ambient lighting, and driver assistance features like blind-spot detection, rear-cross traffic alert and lane change alert. The RS Package and 1LE Track Package are unchanged.

Chevrolet Camaro

1SS

The Camaro 1SS is priced at $37,995 (coupe) or $43,995 (convertible). Apart from the Corvette-sourced V8 engine, the 1SS gets performance modifications like 20-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, and an uprated suspension. There are also HID headlights and an eight-inch infotainment system. That said, compared to the Camaro 2LT, the 1SS misses out on goodies such as dual-zone climate control, heated and ventilated seats and the Bose stereo system – it's best to think of this trim as a V8-powered analog to the 1LT.

For those wanting more performance, there is the 1LE Track Package for the coupe. It costs $6,500 and adds an aerodynamic bodykit, lightweight wheels, Goodyear Eagle SuperCar 3 performance tires, Recaro sport seats, an electronic limited slip differential, and the popular Magnetic Ride Control damping system. If you regularly find yourself on a track or a twisty road, you want this package.

If you'd rather not spend $6,500 on the 1LE package, its Magnetic Ride Control ($1,695) and Recaro-branded seats ($1,395) are available as standalone extras. We'd also recommend checking out the $895 performance exhaust, which gives the 6.2-liter V8 a throatier character.

Chevrolet Camaro

2SS

The Camaro 2SS comes in at $42,995 for the coupe and $48,995 for the convertible. It gets the same mechanical package as the 1SS but with the added features from the Camaro 2LT, which means dual-zone climate control, Bose audio, heated and ventilated seats, a head-up display, wireless charging, ambient lighting, and a heated steering wheel are standard.

Chevrolet Camaro

ZL1

The range-topping Camaro ZL1 is fairly pricey at $63,795 (coupe) or $69,975 (convertible). But for this money, you get everything one could ask for — a 650 horsepower powertrain with Launch Control, 20-inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle SuperCar G:2 performance tires, Brembo brakes, Magnetic Ride Control suspension, 8.0-inch infotainment set-up, heated and ventilated seats, dual-zone climate control, heated steering wheel, Recaro sport seats, head-up display and wireless charging.

If you opt for the coupe, then there is also the 1LE Track Package ($7,500), which adds aerodynamic bodykit – that's an understatement, really; there's an enormous rear wing and dive planes attached to the front bumper, which has a huge splitter – retuned suspension, dual-mode exhaust system, lightweight wheels and Goodyear Eagle SuperCar 3R tires. Put simply, this is the most capable, track-focused Camaro money can buy.

CarsDirect Tip

There are a myriad of options with the Camaro. The 1LS and LT variants are good performance purchases for buyers on a budget, the SS models give you a monstrous engine at a relatively affordable rate. Whichever model you choose, we would advise digging into the accessory catalog – Chevy makes it fun and simple to customize your Camaro, so why not do it?

The perpetual rival to the Ford Mustang, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro is the latest in a line of adaptations that have transformed the vehicle from a pony car to a legitimate sports car. The performance of this generation of Camaro has been often compared to some of the best offerings from Europe, and has come out on top in many tests. It really is that good. Best of all, the Camaro is available in a wide variety of trims and price points so almost anyone can join in on the fun, from the rental-fleet chic base trim to the hardcore monster that is the Camaro ZL1.

Best Value

While the turbo-four and V6 engines of this generation of Camaro are actually a ton of fun, the big 6.2-liter V8 that lies under the hood of the 1SS trim is absolutely worth the money. A sports car is supposed to put a smile on your face, and a huge, powerful V8 is really good at doing that. The SS also gets big Brembo sport brakes and larger 20-inch wheels to cover them, as well as an upgraded suspension system. It may miss out on some of the niceties of the 2LT trim, but let's be real here; the entire point of a Camaro is to be a high-performance vehicle at a price attainable for the every man. Fitting with this theme, we'd stick with the manual transmission and forgo the convertible top.

While the price is steep, we'd also go with the 1LE Track Performance Package, as it turns the Camaro into something that you'd take to your local track day every chance you'd get. This high-performance package adds heavily bolstered Recaro sport seats, performance tires, an electronic limited-slip differential, aerodynamic and styling upgrades, a head-up display, and best of all, GM's magnetic ride suspension, which is among the best adjustable suspensions on the market. While it may make the overall cost of the Camaro pretty expensive compared to the base trims, you'll be able to keep up with cars costing a lot more.

Here's how our Camaro would look:

  • Model: 2018 Chevy Camaro 1SS
  • Engine: 6.2-liter V8
  • Output: 455 hp/ 455 lb-ft
  • Transmission: Six-speed Manual
  • Drivetrain: Rear-wheel drive
  • MPG: 17 City / 27 Hwy
  • Options: 1LE Track Performance Package ($7,000, Recaro Sport Seats, Heads Up Display, Electronic Limited Slip Differential, Black Satin Exterior Trim, High-Performance Tires, Brembo Performance Breaks, Magnetic Sport Suspension, 20-inch Wheels)
  • Base Price:$37,995 (including a $995 destination charge)
  • Best Value Price:$44,995

Performance

Chevrolet Camaro

The Camaro can be had with four different engines, which can be paired with either manual or automatic transmissions. The bottom of the range is 275 horsepower 2.0-liter turbo-four cylinder, but it can be replaced with the optional 3.6L V6 which gives the Camaro 335 horsepower and a surprisingly awesome engine note. SS models get a 455 horsepower 6.2-liter V8 that's taken from the Corvette, and is really the sweet spot for the Camaro. If that's not enough, Chevy offers the supercar-fast Camaro ZL1 with a supercharged version of the V8 that cranks the power up to 650 horsepower, a breathtaking amount of power that is addictive and capable of insane speeds that will get you pulled over very quickly.

Unlike Camaros of yesteryear, this generation is no longer a muscle car, but a true sports car. The Camaro is built on GM's excellent Alpha platform, which it shares with the Cadillac ATS and CTS, giving it an advanced suspension and steering set-up that allows the driver to feel in complete control during dynamic handling. The Camaro is even better when equipped with the 1LE Performance packages that are available on all models, which heavily upgrades the brakes and suspension, while also improving the cooling system so the Camaro can spend a day chasing the engine's redline and carving apexes at the local race track.

The ultimate expression of the Camaro is the ZL1 with the 1LE Performance Package, which is capable of blitzing around the infamous 12.9-mile Nurburgring racetrack in Germany in 7 minutes and 16 seconds. The package most notably adds to the ZL1 a gigantic rear wing and front splitter for maximum aerodynamic downforce, along with weight reductions, exhaust upgrades, thick and sticky tires and a new suspension. The result is grip for days combined with more power than can be reasonably use at most race tracks, giving a fantastic amount of performance for a sum well short of six figures.

Style

The 2018 Camaro continues to build on the major retro-inspired redesign that first hit the streets with the previous generation, although it is sleeker and meaner. It looks fast, even when sitting still, much like a concept rather than a production vehicle. Unfortunately, the stylish high door sills and low roof that add to this feel also make the Camaro notoriously difficult to see out of, a carryover from the previous generation. Overall, it looks less like a muscle car and more like a sports car, which is important for a car that is trying to prove that it is in fact a sports car.

Inside, the Camaro is actually well laid out, with better materials and design elements that feel modern, but there's still a lot of plastic that doesn't look particularly high end. The rear seats are only really there for looks, and the trunk isn't going to hold a ton of stuff. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, and the optional Recaros are well bolstered for high-G cornering. Overall it's nice, but no one will be tricked into thinking they are in anything but a Chevy.

The Best and Worst Things

The latest generation Camaro offers a ton of performance for the price, and it can easily take on sports cars with higher pedigrees and higher price tags. Also, the different options allow a Camaro buyer to configure it to be the car they want. Want a reasonably priced, track day-capable daily driver that can shame an M4? Get a 1SS coupe with the 1LE package. Want a Camaro that's pretty fast but more focused on cruising and having fun? Get the 2LE convertible with a V6 and the automatic transmission.

However, the Camaro seriously suffers from limited visibility. You just can't see that much out the sides and back, which can be difficult to get used to. It's not practical either, and we wonder why the vestigial rear seats are still there, as they add weight and take up room that could be used for a parcel shelf.

Right For?

Chevrolet Camaro

The Camaro is perfect for people who want a daily driver capable of a fun time at the local track day, or someone who wants to have a bit more fun on their daily commute. There's something to be said for people without kids buying an unpractical convertible to take advantage of their lack of responsibilities. More people should do this.

Wrong For?

If you're ever responsible for hauling of more than one other human, don't buy the Camaro. It's cruel and unusual, and you'd be better off with a hot hatch or sport sedan.

The Bottom Line

The Camaro is a highly capable sports car that defies the old logic that American vehicles can't corner well. This is a car that can keep up with almost any sports car out there in one trim level or another. It also remains an affordable option, even if that cheapness can creep up to higher trim levels. At the end of the day, don't underestimate the Camaro, because it is very good at what it does.
