    Chevrolet Camaro (5th gen) 2009-2015

    Chevrolet Camaro

    The Chevrolet Camaro is an automobile manufactured by General Motors under the Chevrolet brand, classified as a pony car and some versions also as a muscle car. It went on sale on September 29, 1966, for the 1967 model year and was designed as a competing model to the Ford Mustang. The car shared its platform and major components with the Pontiac Firebird, also introduced for 1967.

    Four distinct generations of the Camaro were developed before production ended in 2002. The nameplate was revived again on a concept car that evolved into the fifth-generation Camaro; production started on March 16, 2009.

    1. First generation: 1967–1969
    2. Second generation: 1970–1981
    3. Third generation: 1982–1992
    4. Fourth generation: 1993–2002
    5. Fifth generation: 2009–2015
    6. Sixth generation: 2015–present

    DETROIT –Chevrolet introduced the production 2010 Camaro today. It is a heritage-inspired sports car for the 21 st century, combining great looks and performance; advanced technology and surprising efficiency – including 26-mpg estimated highway fuel economy. Sales begin in the first quarter of 2009.

    Built on GM’s new, global rear-wheel-drive architecture, the Camaro is offered in V-6-powered LS and LT models, as well as the V-8-powered SS. All models and powertrain combinations include fuel-saving six-speed transmissions.

    “Camaro delivers all of the things that make Chevrolet such a revered, global brand,” said Ed Peper, GM North America vice president, Chevrolet. “It competes with the world’s best sports cars and does so with styling, fuel economy and value our competitors simply can’t match.”

    Advanced powertrain technologies, including engines with direct injection and Active Fuel Management, enable a satisfying balance of exhilarating performance and good fuel economy.

    “The new Chevrolet Camaro delivers a thoroughly modern, advanced package of performance, comfort and technology,” said Peper. “It’s a sports car for a new generation of enthusiasts that doesn’t forget the heritage that helped make the original a cultural icon . That is no small feat and it took a worldwide commitment to achieve it.”

    Indeed, the 2010 Camaro exemplifies GM’s global development process. The design concept originated in the United States; engineering was directed by GM’s global rear-wheel-drive team in Australia; validation was conducted on roads around the world and assembly will take place at GM’s award-winning Oshawa facility in Canada.

    Product highlights include:

    Sleek styling with contemporary cues and 10 available exterior colors
    LS and LT models offered with an advanced, 3.6L direct-injected V-6 engine with variable valve timing and a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions
    SS model offered with 6.2L V-8 – including fuel-saving Active Fuel Management on automatic-equipped combinations – and a six-speed manual transmission
    Four-wheel independent suspension system, including a 4.5-link rear suspension
    Variable-rate power steering with the rack mounted forward of the front axle for greater driver feel
    Four-wheel disc brake systems standard on all models, including four-piston Brembo calipers on SS models
    Stabilitrak stability control system StabiliTrak electronic stability control system --
    GM's StabiliTrack electronic stability control system uses
    sophisticated vehicle sensors tied to the anti-lock braking system
    to help the driver maintain control during certain maneuvers.

    The system provides increased vehicle control by continuously monitoring
    the car's steering angle, individual wheel speed, brake pressure, lateral
    acceleration and yaw rate.

    The information is then used to compare the direction the
    driver is steering with the vehicle's actual path, so the
    system can make the necessary corrections to help the
    driver keep the vehicle on path.
    and traction control standard on all models
    Competitive/Sport modes for the stability system offered on SS models, including launch control on SS models equipped with the six-speed manual transmission
    Family of 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels
    Detailed interior with heritage-inspired design, excellent attention to detail and available ambient lighting via LED light pipe technology
    Robust body structure and exceptional build quality
    Six standard air bags, including head curtain side-impact air bags and front seat-mounted thorax side air bags
    RS appearance package available on LT and SS, including HID headlamps with integrated halo rings, spoiler, specific taillamps and 20-inch wheels
    The new Camaro also has technologies that enhance performance, comfort and convenience, including:

    Bluetooth phone connectivity
    Premium Boston Acoustics audio system
    USB connectivity
    Ultrasonic rear parking assist (late introduction)
    Remote vehicle starting system
    OnStar OnStar -- OnStar is the in-vehicle safety and security system created to
    help protect you and your family on the road. OnStar's innovative three-button
    system offers:
    • 24-hour access to expertly trained, caring advisors
    • A connection to emergency assistance
    • Access to OnStar Hands-Free CallingXM Satellite Radio
    Additionally, details such as frameless door windows with automatic indexing glass contribute to the overall feeling of quality, substance and technical prowess.

    Design details

    With a design that is very faithful to the original concept, the 2010 Camaro is a 21 st century sports car that acknowledges its heritage. A long front dash-to-axle and short rear deck give the Camaro classic proportions, while a sleek windshield profile, wheels pushed to the corners and muscular fender forms are modern elements that reinforce its advanced engineering – and give the car a decidedly aggressive stance.

    Elements such as a forward-V shape at the front of the car and “gills” in the rear quarter panels are distinctly Camaro cues, as are the broad rear fender “shoulders.” Those elements make the new Camaro instantly recognizable, but their execution is smoothly integrated into the contemporary exterior form. A family of large, 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels also contributes to the Camaro’s modern appearance.

    “The new Camaro is just that – new,” said Ed Welburn, vice president of GM Global Design. “We acknowledge the nameplate’s strong heritage in the design, but recognize that keeping this modern sports car relevant meant more than simply honoring a classic car. The line forms, stance and overall execution are consistent with other new Chevrolets.”

    A well-executed balance of heritage, modern design and attention to detail also characterizes the Camaro’s interior. A pair of deeply recessed instrument binnacles that feature round gauges in square housings is a nod to classic Camaros, while an available ambient light package offers advanced LED light pipe technology to give the cabin a distinctive and inviting glow. Cloth upholstery is standard; heated leather-appointed seats are available.

    Details such as large, chrome-trimmed controls, low-gloss surfaces and premium fabric or acrylic appliqués convey a richness that is unprecedented in previous Camaro models – and challenge its contemporary competitors. More great detail is evidenced in the available center-console gauge cluster, which takes its cue from a similar option on 1969 Camaros. It displays oil temperature, oil pressure, state-of-battery and transmission fluid temperature, all highlighted with modern LED backlighting.


    An advanced, efficient 3.6L direct-injected V-6 with variable valve timing is standard on LS and LT models. Direct injection technology helps the engine deliver more power through increased efficiency, while maintaining fuel economy and lowering emissions. That means less fuel is consumed and lower emissions generated – including a 25-percent drop in cold-start hydrocarbon emissions.

    The Camaro’s 3.6L engine also employs variable valve timing to optimize performance and fuel economy across the rpm range. It is rated at an estimated 300 horsepower (224 kW) and 273 lb.-ft. of torque (370 Nm). A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the 3.6L engine; a Hydra-Matic 6L50 electronically controlled six-speed automatic, with TAPshift control, is available.

    The high-performance Camaro SS is equipped with a powerful 6.2L V-8, with a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Standard, manual transmission-equipped models receive the LS3 engine, estimated at 422 horsepower (315 kW) and 408 lb.-ft. of torque (553 Nm). The LS3 debuted on the 2008 Corvette and uses high-flow cylinder heads based on the Corvette Z06’s LS7 engine to enable great low-end torque and high-rpm power. It is paired with a TR6060 six-speed transmission.

    Body structure and chassis

    The 2010 Camaro is built on GM’s global rear-wheel-drive architecture, with a strong body structure that enhances safety, quietness and handling. World-class build quality and attention to detail are enabled by features including one-piece body side stampings and very precise tolerances between body panels.

    Front and rear independent suspensions are mounted to the rigid chassis, including a multi-link strut arrangement in the front with a direct-acting stabilizer bar and a double ball-joint configuration; and a unique, 4.5-link rear suspension that is double-isolated from the chassis for smoother, quieter driving experience.

    Camaro offers two suspensions. LS and LT models receive an FE2 (sport) suspension, while the SS receives the FE3 (performance) suspension, including a lower ride height. Each is tuned to match the performance capabilities of their respective powertrains, as are their wheel-and-tire combinations.

    A variable-rate rack-and-pinion power steering system mounts the rack forward of the front axle, for more direct action, an enhanced feeling of driver feedback and better weight balance.

    Brakes and chassis control

    Four-wheel disc brakes with ABS are standard on all models. LS and LT models receive single-piston calipers all around, with mass-reducing aluminum rear calipers. SS models have larger rotors that are acted upon by four-piston, aluminum Brembo calipers at all four corners. They are designed to stand up to the severe use encountered on road-race tracks, delivering excellent feedback and pedal feel, as well as fade-resistant performance during racing.

    GM’s StabilTrak electronic stability control system is standard and incorporates traction control. The system on SS models includes Competitive/Sport mode that is adjustable for performance driving, such as on a racetrack; it also includes a Launch Control feature on SS models with the manual transmission. It enables quicker, more consistent takeoffs during performance driving.


    Designed to protect occupants before, during and after a crash, the Camaro offers a comprehensive system of safety features – starting with a robust body structure and integral safety cage around the passenger compartment. High-strength steel and ultra high-strength steel are used in key areas throughout the structure.

    Safety technologies integrated in the Camaro include:

    Driver and front-passenger dual-stage air bags Dual-stage Air Bags --
    Dual-stage air bags are designed to inflate at high speed in serious crashes,
    but deploy with less force in minor-to-moderate crashes. The air bag system's
    sensors determined the severity of the crash, signaling the appropriate
    deployment speed.Driver and front-passenger seat-mounted thorax side-impact air bags
    Head curtain side-impact air bags for front and rear seat occupants
    Front seat safety belt load limiters and pre-tensioners
    The front passenger detection system Front Passenger Detection System --
    To avert potential injury risk from high-pressure airbag inflation,
    the front passenger detection system will suppress air bag
    deployment if a child or person of small stature is sensed
    sitting on the passenger seat. It also senses the presence
    of a child restraint on the seat, and will suppress airbag
    deployment accordingly.
    The detection system uses a mat sensor embedded
    in the passenger seat that establishes the occupant’s
    weight and weight distribution. If this is below a certain
    level, the sensor alerts the SDM central control unit and
    the front passenger airbag will not deploy.
    senses children and small-stature adults and suppresses air bag deployment when appropriate.
    Standard OnStar service assists after a crash. With OnStar’s Advanced Crash Response System, the vehicle automatically sends a signal to OnStar for assistance, even if the air bags don’t deploy.

    Stop looking at me! Look at me! Stop looking at me!
    The black one fixes my main issue with the car, which is the hideous front grill. By having it the same color as everything else, it reduces the garishness. I actually think that one looks pretty good.

    Right car at the wrong time. Gas prices have dropped, but is anyone still interested in paying for still expensive gas? It's like the Pontiac G8. I haven't really seen many of them around.

    I kind of like it. I wouldn't buy one and I don't really want one but I think it will compete well with the Mustang if its priced right. I just hope Chevy avoids all the lame special gimick editions, although since they need the money I doubt they will hold back on those.
