For 2018, the Chevy Camaro returns fully redesigned. Some of the pros to expect from this vehicle include a fuel-efficient turbo-4, a sharp and nimble handling, boffo V8 and strong V6 engines, and a quiet and smooth comfortable ride. Its release date should expected before this fall.
Fuel-efficient and muscle car engines are as identical with one another as puritanical living and Keith Richards. However, the automobile landscape has undergone an evolution dissimilar to the one back in the ‘60s, when no one never thought about the possibility of making a long road trip in a Sherman tank sized fuel-sapping Cadillac. These days, ever-changing gas prizes and strict fuel economy statutes have made an admissible case for car makers to downsize their engine consumption, and that is exactly what GM has managed to do with its Camaro.
Motivating every Camaro is a 2L 4-cylinder engine. The four bangers provide up to 275 hp and 295 pounds of torque, and according to Chevy, more than thirty miles per gallon on the highway. The car is shorter, lower, narrower, and agiler than before due to the “Alpha” platform which underpins it. It is also more compact than the previous Camaros which debuted from 2010 to 2015.
Still, the new vehicle comes in a segment dominated by other well-placed rivals. For instance, the Ford Mustang EcoBoost 2018 comes as one of the most potent rival with better features and materials. Others include Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 for 2018, the 2018 Dodge Challenger V6, and the compelling Audi TT for 2018.
