Chevrolet Camaro

Chevrolet presented the production version of the 2012 Camaro, a model that combines great looks and performance, advanced technology and great fuel efficiency. Under the hood it hides a V6 engine available in two trim levels, LS and LT, but it is also available as the V8 SS. All the outputs are being sent to the wheels through a 6-speed transmission. In terms of design you should know the model has a long front dash to axle and short rear deck, wheels pushed to the corners and muscular fender forms are modern elements that reinforce its advanced engineering. To send the power to the road, the engineers have fitted it with 18-, 19-and 20-inch wheels that also contribute to the modern appearance. The model will come with an ambience light package that offers advanced LED light pipe technology to give the cabin a distinctive and inviting glow. Heated leather seats are also available. More interesting detail id evidenced in the available center console gauge cluster, which takes its cue from a similar option on 1969 Camaros. The 3.6-liter direct injected V6 engine is standard on LS and LT models and it optimizes performance and fuel economy. It is capable of generating 300 horsepower and 370 nm of torque. To transfer the output to the wheels, the model will get a 6-speed manual transmission as standard, with TAPshift control. Manual transmission-equipped models receive the LS3 engine capable of producing around 422 horsepower and 553 Nm of torque. We first saw the LS3 on the 2008 Corvette and it was paired with a TR6060 6-speed transmission. Front and rear independent suspensions are mounted to the rigid chassis, including a multi-link strut arrangement in the front with a direct acting stabilizer bar and a double ball-joint configuration. The new Chevy Camaro offers two suspensions.
