First Look: 2010 Chevrolet Camaro Synergy Special Edition

High-profile exterior colors have long been part of the Camaro heritage, and from February until May, Chevy plans to keep the streak -- of bright green in this case -- going strong. Enter the new Camaro Synergy Special Edition. While its Synergy Green paint -- a hue previewed at the 2009 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show -- and Cyber Grey Rally Stripes on the hood and deck lid is the most obvious cue to this verdant variant, Chevy has managed to pack a fair bit of functional goodness into the package along with its distinctive cosmetic elements.

Based on a standard Camaro 1LT model that includes the 305-horsepower directed-injected V6 backed by either a six-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed autoshifter and FE2 suspension tuning, the Synergy Special Edition also nets the upgrade 19-inch Sterling Silver alloy wheels with 245/50 tires and a rear spoiler

Inside, the visual theme carries with Synergy Green gracing the dash, door inserts and used as accent stitching on its black cloth-covered seats as well as the leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob and center console. The Synergy Special Edition also includes the Convenience and Connectivity Package that adds Bluetooth, a USB port, steering wheel audio controls, rear park assist and remote vehicle starting on versions equipped with the automatic transmission. The Camaro Synergy Special Edition starts at $26,790 with a manual gearbox and $27,975 with the auto alternative.
