For 2012, the Camaro and Camaro SS models will be offered in a special 45th Anniversary package, adding special 20-inch wheels, and unique trim and badging throughout. The entire Camaro line gets a host of important changes for 2012, including a new steering wheel design, revised instrument panel, a new power-lift feature for the front passenger seat and a newly optional rearview camera system. Performance-wise, the big news is that the V6 Camaro gets a boost of 11 horsepower, up to 323 hp for 2012. Also new is an FE4 suspension package that improves handling on the high-performance V8 SS model; and an even higher-performance Camaro ZL1 will arrive later in the model year.
Strong acceleration; great handling; rip-roaring V8 muscle-car sounds; daring design inside and out; decent highway mpg
The Chevrolet Camaro is GM's legendary muscle-car model, offering strong rear-wheel-drive performance in a low coupe or convertible body style. Relative to the other pony cars like the Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger, the Camaro performs athletically, although you give up some outward visibility for the chunky, overt design. Overall, the standout of the model line remains the Camaro SS Coupe, for performance and handling approaching that of an exotic car. But Camaro Convertibles are a strong value as well and provide a different sort of fun.
