Take it out in the rain, the wind, the sun. Let it breathe. Feel the whip of the wind. The roar of the road under your rubber. With its awe-inspiring design, pulse-racing performance and impressive efficiency, Camaro is a forward-thinking machine that's meant to be driven. And loved.
Precision-engineered for speed and efficiency. Styled to be unmistakable. Clean, creased lines set off by bold fender shapes. Sculpted rear shoulders created by an impressive one-piece, body-side panel that is as much a marvel of engineering as it is design.
Deep-set eyes. Large-diameter wheels and tires. Make no mistake: This car is ready to pounce. The long hood and short rear deck give Camaro its iconic look. Cap it off with high-intensity discharge headlamps with glowing LED halo rings in the available RS Appearance Package (LT, SS).
An interior that's as fine-tuned as the drive itself. You're in complete command and control, with features like deep-bolstered seats and the Driver Information Center. And Camaro is constantly being reengineered and upgraded to optimize every minute of your driving experience.
The 2012 Camaro interior has been refined even further, including revised instrument panel styling, a new steering wheel and revised gauge cluster graphics. A four-pack of auxiliary gauges?standard on 2LT and 2SS?includes oil pressure and transmission temperature.
Chevrolet engineers have further optimized the steering wheel to give you top-level control and a luxurious feel. The improved, more modern design has pronounced thumb grips above the central spokes for better grip and feel. Control audio functions with buttons right on the steering wheel, plus the standard Bluetooth® wireless technology4 for select phones helps keep you connected.
You don't want to be the only one appreciating the ride. New for 2012, the passenger seat in every LT and SS Camaro has standard six-way power. That's on top of the already standard six-way power driver's seat.
Hard to believe, but the 2012 Camaro LFX V6 is lighter-weight and more powerful?323 horses more powerful with the same impressive fuel efficiency: 30 MPG highway on the 6-speed automatic transmission 2LS. The dual overhead cam engine gives you heart-racing performance. Direct injection and variable valve timing combine to ensure you're getting the most out of every mile. This is one high-tech, low-down, powerful engine.
If unbridled power is what you're after, the aluminum Camaro SS 6.2L V8 engine offers 426 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque befitting its aggressive reputation.
It's so fun to drive, you might just volunteer to pick up the dry cleaning. The independent rear suspension and variable-ratio power steering give you the kind of handling you've only dreamt about. Its chassis is tuned to stick in turns and handle transitional situations like a champion. A 52/48 front-to-rear weight ratio gives you the kind of balance you'd expect in the world's best sports cars.
The exhilarating Camaro experience starts?literally?where the rubber meets the road. Twenty-inch wheels are available on LT and standard on SS, and make a statement that's impossible to ignore. Pair them with Pirelli6 PZero™ ultra-high performance tires7 for a true experience of luxury and power.
Advanced electronic systems, coupled with engineering characteristics like Camaro's rigid body structure, work in harmony to help prevent collisions?and help protect you if you're in one. It's optimal safety before, during and, thanks to 6 months of OnStar, after a crash.
Standard on every Camaro, antilock brakes and the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control help keep you in control during emergency maneuvers. The control module compares your steering input with the vehicle's actual response and, if necessary, makes the corrections to help keep you on track.
In the event of a collision, six standard air bags12 help protect heads, chests and knees. And the ultra-strength steel safety cage helps keep everyone in the vehicle protected.
OnStar® Automatic Crash Response8, standard for the first six months on all Camaro models, means you can be automatically connected to emergency assistance if a crash occurs?whether or not the air bags deploy.
