Benefits of Driving a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe

The Chevrolet Camaro is GM's legendary muscle-car model, offering strong rear-wheel-drive performance in a low coupe or convertible body style. Relative to the other pony cars like the Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger, the Camaro performs athletically, although you give up some outward visibility for the chunky, overt design. Overall, the standout of the model line remains the Camaro SS Coupe, for performance and handling approaching that of an exotic car. But Camaro Convertibles are a strong value as well and provide a different sort of fun.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, the Camaro and Camaro SS models will be offered in a special 45th Anniversary package, adding special 20-inch wheels, and unique trim and badging throughout.

Model Strengths

  • Strong acceleration
  • great handling
  • rip-roaring V8 muscle-car sounds
  • daring design inside and out
  • decent highway mpg

Model Review

The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro comes in a wide range of models designed to cover uses ranging from stylish open-air cruising to track-ready high-performance guise. The 2012 Camaro is available in Coupe or soft-top Convertible models. Camaro Coupes are offered in base LS, sportier LT and high-performance SS models, while Convertibles are only offered in LT or SS trim. There remain two available engines in the lineup: a 323-horsepower, 3.6L V6, and a 426-hp, 6.2L V8. On both of these engines, there's a 6-speed manual standard, or a 6-speed automatic optional--with TapShift manual controls for the automatic.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
