America’s one true muscle car has roared onto the scene in 2012 with an exciting new trim, more power and a sophisticated new interior. Thanks to a new engine and several other minor tweaks, the new Camaro is faster and more versatile than any of its predecessors. Everyone from new admirers to life-long enthusiasts can find something to appreciate in this masterpiece of a vehicle.
The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro comes with two possible engines: a 3.6L V6 engine or a 6.2L V8, generating 426 and 580 horsepower, respectively. Both engines have a manual transmission by default, but a six-speed automatic is available at additional cost. The V6 has earned a combined gas mileage rating of 22 miles to the gallon, whereas the V8 is slightly less efficient at 19 miles per gallon.
The Camaro has always been famous as a style icon within the car industry. Its bold design and aggressive contours scream speed and power, while at the same time integrating sporty features such as a convertible option. The Camaro is made to go fast and to be noticed, and the 2012 model continues to work toward that image. The interior sees an improved steering wheel, higher-quality materials and an updated dash and console system.
Since 1967, the Chevrolet Camaro has entranced young minds and developed a devoted following. Chevy could have chosen to rest on its laurels, but the Camaro continues to evolve and grow as technology improves and modern tastes change. The 2012 Camaro may be the best in a storied history, and remains the essential American car. Get yours at Wilson County Motors!
