Chevrolet has launched their 2018 Camaro which got a pet name “fun-machine” because of the numerous options to choose its various trims counting both convertible and coupe. The model is made to cater every kind of taste that are observed among car lovers and road-trip enthusiasts.
The lineup series of 2018 Camaro carries a long list of new features and changes that were added to their earlier versions. The Chevrolet Carlisle dealer shared with us a few of these details that are penned down below:
Engines and transmissions
Depending on which trim you select from the 2018 Camaros series, you are going to have one of the four engine options.
While the LS and LT Camaros are run on a 2.0-liter turbocharged DOHC inline-four engine that has 275 horsepower preforming at 5,600 rpm. The vehicle gives a 295 pound-feet of torque that ranges from 3,000 to 4,500 rpm. The LS and LT trims can be upgraded to a 335-hp 3.6-liter V6 direct injection engine too as the V6’s maximum 284 lb-ft would deliver at 5,300 rpm.
For the 2018 versions, the 1LE Extreme Track Performance package is the main new option you get to see in all the major Camaro trim levels, like the ZL1. No such major change is noticeable in the basic built of the 2018 Camaro, except that the base of the 1LS trim level which has been added recently.
There is a sea change observed in the car layout and of course in the quality of materials. Most of the primary controls are placed within easy range. Some people might not like the way the buttons are placed across the dashboard in a row and have become hard to differentiate. The infotainment screen and the console are the latest in their segments.
The Chevrolet Camaro can be marked as one of the strong performers that could blend speed with precision perfectly. The fun stored in the 2018 models have never been perceived in the earlier Camaro versions. The SS V8 trim looks stout, while the LT’s V6 looks punchy. The handling of the vehicles looks more precise in the V6, while the V8 trim with its stickier tires shows higher limits of performance level. The driving gets an edge over its competitors because of its impressive eight-speed automatic transmission.
As shared by the Carlisle Chevy dealer, comfort in all the 2018 Camaro trim levels is felt because of the ride quality which was the mission of the brand model this year. The positive vibes get better with the adaptive dampers, though it is an optional feature for these trim levels.
The front seat as well as the rear ones are well-shaped and offer a solid lateral support without any feeling of confinement. The door and center armrests are effectively padded that gives a comfy touch. But the back seat needs some more space to maintain the otherwise comfortable ride.
The Bottom Line
The 2018 versions of all the trim levels of Chevrolet Camaro are surprisingly sharp and has an unexpectedly smooth handling in every turn they take. The value of this model has increased with lots of standard equipment doing their work perfectly through the rides.
