American Muscle Car Roundup: the New 2015 Camaro

By Sahid Fawaz

The Camaro has been on quite a journey over the decades, with many changes along the way. The fifth generation Camaro (2010-2015) reinvigorated the Camaro with its all new retro-modern muscle car design and led to it gaining the lead in sales over the Mustang.

The 2015 Camaro continues to offer what drivers love about the fifth generation car: high performance in a muscle car body that is as exciting to drive as it is look at. All in all it’s a beautiful machine made by the proud union labor.

Body:

The 2015 Camaro is a looker. The design is one of the most eye-catching of any car in production, signaling to onlookers that this is first and foremost a muscle car. Here are a few of the available models below.

Interior:

The 2015 interior offers cloth or leather seats and plenty of room for the driver and front passenger. Technology offerings are first-class with optional touch screen navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and more.

The major area of controversy for the interior is the visibility. Owners say that it’s not much of a problem. We have driven it and agree with critics that it offers some of the worst visibility of any car on the market. Did we get a little more used to it after a few times behind the wheel? Yes. Do we wish Chevrolet would offer more visibility in the next version? Definitely. This is one of those cars that we would highly recommend the rear camera option for backing out. Also, the visibility issues disappear for those who opt for the convertible (when the top is down).

Under the Hood:

The entry level Camaro has a powerful 3.6L V6 with 323 HP. It has plenty of kick, even when considering that the Camaro is one heavy car.

Further up the chain is the SS version, which comes with a 6.2L V-8 capable of 426 HP. It’ll cost you a bit more but you’ll get a lot of power in return.

Price:

The V-6 version starts at $23,705 and the V-8 model starts at $33,505. For a full price list and description of the models, check out the official Camaro page here.

Conclusion:

The 2015 Camaro offers a lot bang for the buck, delivering great performance in a head-turning body that is both retro and contemporary. And best of all is that it’s union-made. If you’re in the market for a fun car, head over to your local Chevrolet dealer and give it a test drive.
