2011 CHEVROLET CAMARO

For 2011 the Chevrolet Camaro rolls on with evolutionary changes with an increased horsepower rating for the 3.6L V-6 VVT — 312 vs. 2010’s 304 horsepower — while still offering an EPA-rated 29 mpg on the highway.
No changes were made to the Camaro powertrain to achieve the higher horsepower ratings for 2011. They are based on additional testing that demonstrated the Camaro’s air intake and exhaust systems are less restrictive than the similar 3.6L DI engine on which the original rating was based.
All Camaro models can be equipped with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The Aisin AY6 six-speed manual is standard with the 3.6L engine, and a Hydra-Matic 6L50 six-speed automatic is optional.
The 2011 Camaro features fully independent front and rear suspensions, with the standard independent using a 4.5-link system that includes a unique, L-shaped upper control arm that attaches to the knuckle at one end and incorporates a ride bushing in the rear.
Camaro’s design drapes classic proportions over a 112.3-inch wheelbase. A long hood and short deck are pushed to the far corners of the muscular fender forms and a fast, 67-degree rake windshield contributes to aerodynamic performance.
Deep, recessed gauges, located in square housings, give a nod to the classic Camaro interior. The instrument panel gauges include both speedometer and engine rpm, with a driver information center located between the large gauges.
Base model estimated mpg: 17/29
Estimated starting price: $22,680
