Chevy Camaro, iconic American muscle car nears the end of its fifth generation.2015 Chevrolet Camaro model will be either last of its generation or first model of the sixth generation. There are talks that it will be a completely redesigned car which comes as no surprise considering the fact that Ford Mustang, Camaro’s main competitor entered the sixth generation this year.
2014 Camaro comes in five different trims: Coupe and Convertible have a V6 engine with 323 hp, ZL1 and ZL1 Convertible have a V8 engine with 480 hp and last, but not the least, Z/28 has a V8 LS7 engine with 505 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. 2015 model might come with a variety of engines but will most certainly come with 3.6L Twin Turbo V6 and probably with all new 6.2L or 7.0L V8 small block engine. All of Camaros are and will be RWD vehicles with 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
2015 Chevrolet Camaro Redesign
As a complete redesign is expected, 2015 Chevrolet Camaro will get more than a facelift, but will, anyway still resemble its predecessor. It is a Camaro, after all. It might abandon its current classic look and shift towards contemporary one. Most of the changes will come as an attempt to improve its aerodynamics and, with it, fuel efficiency.
Inside, a new Camaro will be redesigned for better ergonomics and more high-technology while utilizing better materials throughout. Many of the features of 2014 model will surely remain, since there isn’t much that can be implemented, but Chevy’s interior designers will surely find a few that they could work with. They might improve existing electronics and gadgets or install something new. Safety features are already at highest level, but more airbags wouldn’t come as a surprise.
2015 Chevy Camaro will accelerate from 0 to 60 in less than 6 seconds with V6 engine and in less than 4 seconds with V8. 2014 Camaro goes up to 19 mpg in a city and up to 30 mpg on a highway which are the best possible numbers for all Camaros right now. 2015 Camaro will surely be lighter and will have better aerodynamics, so it will be more fuel-efficient. Will that be enough (since competition has better grades), it remains to be seen.
2015 Camaro price
Prices will remain pretty much where they are and won’t go too high. They can be expected to fall in a range between $25,000 and $65,000 for stock versions or up to $75,000 for fully upgraded top model.
The die is cast, in this case by Ford with its next-gen Mustang and Chevy needs to respond. 2015 Chevrolet Camaro will be their response and they will surely come back in with a shout. Camaro wouldn’t be Camaro for almost fifty years otherwise, now would it?
