2018 Chevrolet Camaro 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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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?
