The 2021 Chevy Camaro is a four-seat coupe or convertible with rear-wheel drive and comes in several high-performance versions. While the Camaro was a formidable performance car back in the day, it has transformed into a serious sports car with performance comparable to models that cost tens of thousands of dollars more. The Camaro is much more than just a car built for pleasure and speed, it is now loaded with the convenience and tech features you would expect in a luxury model.
If you tremble with excitement at the thrilling rumbling of exhaust and dream about sweeping down a windy road with the windows down and the sound system blaring classic rock staples, the Chevy Camaro will satisfy your every sports car need. With amazing power, stylish good looks, vibrant paint options, and luxury finishes, the Camaro is a standout vehicle. For those who love to drive, the 2021 Chevy Camaro won’t disappoint.
While the standard 2.0-liter Turbo engine offers up 275 horsepower and will go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds, we are betting that many drivers will opt for the V6 or V8 choices. After all, while the Camaro is still great for Sunday drives through the neighborhood to grab an ice cream, the fun of having a sports car is pushing it to the limits. That said, the four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine is a good choice that boasts 30 MPG on the highway so that it will satisfy the needs of the daily driver.
The available 3.6-liter provides a hearty 335 horsepower and will go from 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds. This engine choice can be paired with the 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. The V6s response is quicker than the four-cylinder, but the most significant difference is in the sound of the engine. If you want your Camaro to sound like a Camaro, the obvious choice is the V6. If a roaring engine isn’t essential to you, then the 2.0-liter remains an excellent choice.
If you are feeling adventurous, you might be tempted to opt for the available 6.2-liter engine. The Variable Valve Timing and Direct Injection help keep fuel efficiency in check without sacrificing quickness. The 6.2-liter option is a V8 and can be paired with the available 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. Yes, it is a fast engine and will take you from 0 to 60 mph in an impressive 4.3 seconds. This V8 comes standard on the LT1 and SS trims.
Some will argue that when you are buying a brand new 2021 Chevy Camaro, you should go big or go home. For those like-minded drivers, the Supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 is a no-brainer, so to speak. You guessed it, and this bad boy boasts a ton of power with 650 horsepower and the ability to get you from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. It's the only choice if you really want to push this car to the limits.
Some brands focus far too much on the powertrain and styling and tend to skip important aspects of the interior, like the little details that make it comfortable and functional, but this isn’t the case with the Chevy Camaro. In fact, it is the little details that make the interior a pace you won’t want to leave once you slide behind the wheel.
Let’s start with the basics; even the base models are fitted with the latest Infotainment 3 System, which includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. That’s a really nice perk for a base model. The Infotainment 3 System offers convenience, you can find your mobile apps in just a second or two, and you will also appreciate the standard Wi-Fi hotspot. Other standard goodies include dual USB ports, Bluetooth, and the ability to surf the web at 4G speeds.
There are numerous improvements to the interior in this year’s model. Chevy decided to up their game by using high-quality materials that not only look better but give the interior of the Camaro a modern and sleek look. The available aluminum driving pedals are a nice touch. The interior layout is pretty straightforward, and the front seats are comfortable, even more so if you opt for the heated and ventilated seats. The available power seats with Memory Package ensure that you can easily find your comfort position even after letting somebody else drive your Camaro - if you dare.
If you are going to invest in a 2021 Chevy Camaro, odds are you will want to add a design package or a few accessories to make your ride more specialized and unique. After all, the car you drive should reflect your personality, and what better way to express your character than forged polished wheels or ground effects. It’s these little added inspirations that are sure to make your ride more fun, not to mention the heads that will turn when you drive by.
The Wild Cherry Design Package 1 is available on the SS, LT, and LT1 trims and features forged polished wheels, a black metallic hash mark stripe, a Camaro fender badge, Camaro shield wheel center caps, and Camaro floor mats with silver edging. It might not sound like much, but it’s the little details that make the Camaro a one-of-a-kind ride. Besides, the silver-lined floor mats pair nicely with the aluminum driving pedals.
For even more style and flair, you can opt for the Wild Cherry Design Package 2. In addition to everything mentioned above in the first package, the second package offers ground effects, a fuel door with a visible carbon-filter insert, a black or silver center stripe, and a black microfiber suede interior trim kit complete with knee pads. The ground effects go a long way in drawing attention to you and your ride while cruising the streets on a Saturday night; if that is your style, of course. The center stripe is icing on the proverbial cake.
There are over 300 accessories you can choose when buying your Chevy Camaro, and they include an excellent array of electronics, interior novelties, and performance features. There are several decals and exterior emblems that will further separate your Camaro from the rest. You can add a spoiler or splash guards, and there are three grilles from which to choose. Personally, we would opt for the black grill with Red Hot inserts.
It is common knowledge that the Camaro is a performance model, and there is a segment of the population who will want to upgrade the performance of their Camaro. Upgrading your Camaro can be as simple as opting for a different shifter or exhaust tips to upgrading the entire brake system or suspension. It is up to you to decide how you want your Camaro to look and drive.
Far too many auto manufacturers throw around the term style, even when referring to typical sedans. Style is highly subjective, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Shakespeare proverbs aside, the 2021 Camaro does boast an aggressive exterior styling that many will find quite intimidating. Look closely, and there are several cues taken directly from the styling from the late 1960s. Throw in the trim variations, design packages, and numerous available accessories, and your Camaro will easily reflect who you are.
The Camaro also looks powerful, like a finely-tuned athlete, which is the perfect compliment to that aggressive look. The balance of brute and finesse is spot-on, and the look of the Camaro matches its performance and roar of the engine. It has been reported that Chevy went out of their way to listen to customer’s ideas about design updates. Perhaps this is why so many people find the style compelling and appealing.
The popular muscle car that has been refined over the years features a low aerodynamic grille fronting a sporty coupe body. You can enjoy your Camaro in nine stunning colors including, Riverside Blue Metallic, Shadow Gray Metallic, and the newly introduced Wild Cherry Tintcoat. If you are going to go red, you definitely want to go Wild Cherry Tintcoat red. The bottom line is that the 2021 Chevy Camaro is a classic performance car with tons of character and impressive styling.
