TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro

2016 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

2017 2dr Coupe 455-horsepower 6.2L V8
8-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The problem isn't so much the room available in the front seat -- once you're settled, it's fine. It's getting in and out. This car sits low, and has short doors. Getting in takes a concerted effort to not bop your head on the doorframe. Getting out sometimes takes putting your hand on the ground and falling out, then jumping to your feet like "I meant to do that!" Come to think of it, there have been a couple of times that a large-ish dip in the road has made my head actually hit the ceiling. On the other hand, this particular car has the sunroof, which reduces headroom. Still, I'm only 5'10", and I can't wear a hat in the Camaro. see full Chevrolet Camaro review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro

2016 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

This is it. This is the highest performance car I have ever driven. For a week, I get to rent an Infraction-Red Camaro SS in the San Francisco Bay area, with the 6.2-liter V8 that adds 455hp to the world. Even with the automatic transmission...even with the V4/V8 cylinder cutoff doohickey...this car is fast. Like...faaaassssst. Like, no matter when or where, the right pedal unleashes sonic fury and launches you with ludicrous speed. I've driven fast cars before. Mustang GT back in the day when it made 236hp. BMW 540i with performance and handling packages. Doesn't matter. This year's Camaro SS is an order of magnitude faster than anything I've ever experienced. Yesterday on the freeway, there was a Maserati that was being hot-shoed around, and my instinct was "don't mess with this guy...you only have a Camaro." But after reading up...the Camaro SS is the equal of that Maserati, as well as pretty much everything else on the road. I'm talking about power in the realm of winning any stoplight drag that I'd care to initiate, up to the level of the Tesla P85D with "Insane" mode...that's one of the few cars I can think of that would beat this Camaro. see full Chevrolet Camaro review
