Official photos and info on the 2010 Camaro
After many, many months of spy photos and guessing, we finally have some official details on the 2010 Chevy Camaro. There will be three engine choices, a 3.6L direct injection V6 with 300HP/273TQ, a new 6.2L L99 V8 for 6 speed auto equipped cars with 400HP/395TQ and the 6.2L LS3 V8 for 6 speed manual cars with 422HP/408TQ. The V6 cars will be rated at 26mpg and the L99 V8, which featured Active Fuel Management, will get 23mpg highway. The trim levels will be LS, LT and SS. The LS and LT will get the V6 engine while the SS gets the choice of V8s and auto or manual transmissions. The LT and SS can be ordered with the RS appearance package which adds HID headlamps with integrated halo rings, a rear spoiler, different taillamps and 20-inch wheels. SS models get Brembo brakes and a Sport mode with stability control and launch control.
Aside from the retro exterior, the car will also sport a very retro interior with 60's style gauges reminiscent of the first generation Camaros. A nice touch are the lower gauges on the center console ahead of the shifter. Prices are expected to start around $25k for the V6 and up to $40k for the SS.
