The legendary Camaro was built to challenge the most powerful sports coupes in the world. It accomplishes the 0-60 sprint in just 3.5 seconds, and the quarter-mile in just 11.4. Boasting a 650-HP supercharged 6.2-L V-8, it is able to venomously crank out 650 lbs-feet of max torque. The 6-speed manual features a short-throw shifter that feels snug while still being very responsive, while the Active Rev Matching simulates heel/toe shifting, perfectly engaging the throttle to match the wheel speed for the smoothest gear changes possible.
An icon as cool as the Camaro is so stealth that many don't even look over what yearly awards it is able to grab up! Everyone here at Jim Butler pays close attention to its achievements, as it is a vehicle that has been hailed time and time again. Raw power and refined design are the names of the game as far as the Camaro is concerned, and J.D. Powers awarded it the "Most dependable midsize sporty car, five years in a row."
There must be at least three models with 80% of market sales in any given award segment for an award to be presented to a specific model. Chevy has had a strong bounce-back from the auto crisis in general, and our beloved brand has really rivaled moxie against their numerous competitors in the J.D. Powers arena to become the top-awarded brand last year.
Car and Driver celebrated its 50th Anniversary 12 years ago, and is a powerhouse publication located in Ann Arbor , MI. Well-known for doling out the goods on anything auto-related for decades, they took close care to spread the Camaro love last year themselves. Rather than electing a Car of the Year, they get down to business quickly and pick their top ten annually in their own 10Best. The Camaro stole the honors to this award over the course of 2017, and its supercharged performance allows it to dominate heavily in its own class.
Standard engine oil, complex transmission foundations, and coolers within the rear differential serve the purpose of commanding this feisty vessel, while a 36mm high-performance radiator provides the cooling additive to quell the engine after each performance. Kelley's Blue Book also awarded the Camaro "2016 Best Resale Value," solidifying the fact that you can achieve gain in the greenback sector if you ever feel the need to part ways with your beloved possession.
When you come down to visit us at Jim Butler and check out the Camaro selection on the lot, ask us about Custom Launch Control: it uses Performance Traction Control to keep the rear tires spinning at a healthy rate. Them, it allows you to adjust your launch RPM as well as wheel slippage through the very useful Driver Information Center. It's well-known that Camaros are a cultivated favorite on the drag strip: check out just how powerful and robust the model line really is, before the kiss of summer fades into fall!
