TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro

2017 Chevrolet Camaro Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
Neither rear seat has enough headroom for someone of even my modest (5-9) height. I could scrunch down and ride back there for a little while, but I'd almost rather walk. Getting into and out of the back seat pose additional challenges. If you want a somewhat similar car with an adult-worthy back seat, check out the much larger, much heavier Dodge Challenger. see full Chevrolet Camaro review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro

2017 Chevrolet Camaro Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2016 With a 455-horsepower, 455-pound-foot 6.2-liter V8, the Camaro SS outmuscles the 435-horsepower, 400-pound-feet Mustang GT, especially if you're not winding the engines near their red lines. In magazine testing of both cars with manual transmissions (which is how I tested them), the Camaro tends to get from a dead stop to 60 mph a few tenths sooner. But even the Ford can get there in well under five seconds. The real difference emerges once over 60 mph, where the Camaro pulls increasingly farther ahead. It's all too easy to top 70 and even 80 before you realize how fast you're going. Especially in the Camaro, an automatic transmission makes the car quicker. While the Ford's optional automatic has six speeds, the Chevrolet's has eight, and shifts much more quickly than a human can. I don't care if the automatic is quicker, though, because the manual provides a more thorough connection with the car and makes driving it much more fun. Both manual shifters require a moderate amount of effort to snick (precisely) from gear to gear, which is perfectly in keeping with the characters of these cars. In the Camaro, the primary sense that acceleration is happening comes from the exhaust. The tested car was fitted with the $895 dual-mode exhaust system. When cruising at a steady speed there's no exhaust noise worth mentioning. The exhaust drone that could prove annoying on long drives in the Chevrolet SS sedan? It's absent in the Camaro. But accelerate in any mode other than "stealth" and the exhaust rumbles then roars as revs climb. Lift off the throttle at high rpm, and the exhaust crackles and pops. It's a classic American V8 soundtrack, but with more refinement than in GM's previous generation V8. I personally prefer the even more refined noises made by the Mustang's DOHC V8, but mine probably isn't the majority opinion. Many reviewers feel the GT's engine is too quiet. You'll hear no such complaints concerning the 526-horsepower (at 7,500 rpm!) 5.2-liter "flat crank" V8 in the Mustang Shelby GT350. Consensus seems to be that it's far and away the best-sounding V8 you can buy in a car with a price tag under a quarter-million. And if you think it sounds amazing up to 7,000 rpm--at which point your ears will tell you it's time to shift--press on. Over 7,000 rpm the V8's scream goes to a whole other level. The simpler, less varied song of the Camaro's V8 doesn't begin to compare. The ZL1's supercharger won't change this, though it will no doubt yield a much quicker car once going fast enough that acceleration isn't traction-limited. Acceleration in the GT350? Only over 100 mph will it pull ahead of the Camaro SS. Perhaps you don't feel the need for the V8's rumble, and only need a very quick car rather than an extremely quick one. The Camaro is also offered with a 275-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and a 335-horsepower 3.6-liter V6. Even the four should be plenty quick for public roads, but its relatively high frequency, refined-four noises aren't the best fit for Camaro duty. When opened up, the V6 emits a throaty roar that better suits the car, and it takes only about a second longer than the V8 to get to 60. see full Chevrolet Camaro review
