With new design cues evocative of the legendary 1969 model, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro combines the spirit of the classic American muscle car with the fuel efficiency, safety, handling, technology and build quality expected in a modern performance coupe.

The Camaro is available in three trims: LS, LT and SS. The LS and LT are powered by a 323-hp direct-injected 3.6-liter V6 with a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic transmission. 

The SS’s 6.2-liter V8 generates 426 horsepower with the standard six-speed manual, and 400 horsepower with the optional six-speed automatic with sequential shift control. Standard equipment on all Camaros includes independent rear suspension, StabiliTrak stability control with traction control, six airbags, air conditioning, OnStar and SiriusXM satellite radio. The LT adds fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels and power seats, while the SS features unique front fascia, sport suspension, Brembo brakes, and a limited slip differential. The available RS Package includes 20-inch aluminum wheels with performance tires and distinctive high-intensity headlights with a “halo ring” display. Optional equipment includes Bluetooth wireless connectivity, power sunroof, performance tires, Boston Acoustics sound system and a variety of exterior stripe packages.

For 2012, the revised 3.6-liter V6′s horsepower is bumped from 312 to 323. The new FE4 suspension debuts as a performance improvement for the SS coupe, focusing on more refined handling. The taillamps that had been a part of the RS appearance package in 2011 and a rear spoiler are now standard on all trims. A new Rear Vision Package adds a rearview camera system and an auto-dimming mirror to the existing Rear Park Assist feature. Interior updates include a revised instrument panel appearance, with new instrument graphics and trim, as well as a new steering wheel design and a power lift feature for the front passenger seat. The 45th Anniversary Package will be offered on Camaro’s top two trim levels (2LT and 2SS) for both coupe and convertible body styles, and includes unique hood and deck stripes, new-design 20-inch wheels in dark silver, 45th Anniversary embroidery and badges, and red, white and blue stitching.

What’s most impressive is that the Camaro Convertible reacts nearly identically to its tin-top twin when the tarmac turns twisty. Start wrenching on the wheel and you’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the two were the sun not on your face and the wind in your hair. This isn’t a car we’d be particularly interested in taking to our local autocross, but it’s far more athletic than we anticipated. This is a convertible grown men don’t have to be embarrassed to drive.
