2011 Chevrolet Camaro Overview
The Chevrolet Camaro returns in 2011 with a few refinements to the 2010 model which marked the rebirth of the Camaro line. The Camaro is back and more than holds its own against the competition, including the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger.
Chevrolet has mixed design elements from the legendary first generation Camaro with modern styling to produce a car that looks both current and classic at the same time. There are five available trim levels for the 2011 Camaro: LS, 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, and 2SS. The Camaro continues the muscle car tradition of offering powerful and responsive engines. The LS, 1LT, and 2LT trims come outfitted with a 3.6-liter, 312-horsepower direct-injected V-6 with 273 pounds-feet of torque. A step up to the 1SS or 2SS ups the ante with a 6.2-liter, 400-horsepower V-8 with 395 pounds-feet of torque if you choose the six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Opting for the traditional six-speed manual bumps the power even higher, bringing with it a 6.2-liter, 426-horespower V-8 with a whopping 408 pounds-feet of torque. There is no questioning the Camaro’s ability to get off the line in a hurry. Fuel economy is rated at 16-18 mpg in the city and 24-29 mpg on the highway, impressive figures for such large engines.
Exterior touches, like the low roofline, short rear porch, hood scoop, and dual exhaust give the 2011 Camaro a stunning and aggressive look to go with all that power. Optional exterior features include upgrades to 18-, 19-, 20-, or 21-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, and Xenon HID headlamps. Moving to the interior, the Camaro is loaded with standard features including an MP3/CD player, XM Satellite Radio, cruise control, power driver’s and passenger’s seats, power windows, and keyless entry. There is also a long list of available options such as a power moonroof, Bluetooth®, rear parking assist, leather seats, a premium sound system, and remote vehicle start.
The 2011 Camaro is also packed with safety features. Any new Camaro comes with OnStar, and one free year of GM’s Safe and Sound Plan with features including monthly email alerts, automatic crash response, and roadside assistance. Standard safety features on the 2011 Camaro include side curtain/front impact airbags, daytime running lamps, four wheel disc brakes with ABS, stability control, and traction control.
If you’re dying for a dose of good, old-fashioned American muscle combined with modern convenience and safety features in a great looking package, then the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro just might be the perfect fit for you.
