2022 Chevrolet Camaro SS coupe

Pros: Surprisingly peppy base engines; strong performance of V8 models; decent ride quality for the class

Cons: Tight rear leg room; small trunk opening with high liftover; poor visibility

CG Says: For the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro, the 1LE track performance package is no longer offered with the the four- or six-cylinder engines. With its impressive roster of engine choices–a 275-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four, 335-hp 3.6-liter V6, 455-hp 6.2-liter V8, or 650-hp supercharged 6.2-liter V8–the Camaro can be tailored to a range of sporty-car tastes and budgets. All engines have a standard 6-speed manual transmission. An 8-speed automatic is optional with the turbo four and a 10-speed auto is available with the V6 and V8s. The current-generation Chevrolet Camaro is smaller, lighter, and more technologically advanced than its predecessor, and the addition of the ZL1 bolsters its already sterling performance credentials. Some testers grumble about the Camaro’s low, visibility-impeding roofline, and stingy backseat/trunk space, but those quirks aren’t uncommon in this class. With newly added standard wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality, Camaro offers a compelling blend of technology, performance, style, and refinement–in any of its forms, it’s a worthy competitor to the arch-rival Ford Mustang, and a must-see when shopping sporty two-doors.
