2014 Best Resale Value Awards: Sports Car

2014 Chevrolet Camaro V6
Share this article

Owning a muscle car used to bring with it a number of supplementary expenses, particularly when it came time to sell, but the Chevrolet Camaro V6 keeps practicality in check thanks to laudable resale value, a lengthy 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and EPA fuel economy figures of up to 30 mpg on the highway. If ever there was a good time to own a modern-day muscle car, it's now.

From where we sit, the 2014 Camaro is a design tour de force. It's great looking from every angle and instantly recognizable as a Camaro without drawing too heavily on designs from previous generations. While its aggressive front end immediately grabs your attention, our favorite element of the design is the synergy between the flared rear fenders and the roof. GM designers say it was extremely difficult to accomplish this look using factory stamping techniques, but the end result was a smashing success.

Camaros of old were great in a straight line but less impressive through corners, especially if the road surface was uneven. Employing a multi-link rear suspension in place of a live axle, the current-generation Camaro is much more at home in these types of challenging situations. And with 323 horsepower on tap, the 2014 Camaro V6 can give the V8-powered Camaros of yore a serious run for their money.

For all its impressive performance figures, though, the Camaro's most compelling quality is quite possibly its sticker price. With an enticing $24,500 starting MSRP and low depreciation, the Chevy Camaro offers a considerable amount of bang for the buck.
