KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz


The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro transcends its muscle-car roots, becoming something altogether new: a sports coupe so sophisticated you'd think it was born in Europe. That's because this is basically the Chevrolet version of the Cadillac ATS, a car that happens to be one of the best-driving cars GM has ever made. This newfound maturity is fitting, as this year marks the Chevy Camaro's 50th anniversary. Along with the word "Fifty" plastered on every model, Chevrolet is introducing two new high-performance models: the Camaro 1LE for the track-day enthusiast, and the 650-horsepower Camaro ZL1 aimed at those for whom too much is never enough. Whether you choose the 4-cylinder turbo, V6, V8, coupe or convertible, the 2017 Chevy Camaro gives the Ford Mustang night sweats.

You'll Like This Car If...

The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro offers the kind of handling and braking one usually associates with high-end European sports coupes and sedans. However, it's backed up with all-American V8 muscle, and cloaked in styling that's among the best we've ever seen from Detroit.

You May Not Like This Car If...

All this sophistication talk is about the Camaro's chassis dynamics. Inside, the hard plastics and curious ergonomic choices are not up to the same standard. Additionally, the rear seat would have to be bigger just to be tiny, and the view out the narrow windows is tough; claustrophobics, stay away.

What's New for 2017

Aside from the hoopla surrounding the Camaro's 50th anniversary -- look for "Fifty" badges everywhere -- two models join the lineup. First is the Camaro 1LE, a track-ready package that pares the car down to its essentials. The Camaro ZL1, with its 650-horsepower V8, is for the purely power-hungry.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Let's get this out of the way now: No, we haven't driven the 2017 Camaro ZL1, but with 650-horsepower supercar-grade performance, suffice to say we're excited. Part of that excitement is because we already know how fundamentally good this Camaro is. Smaller and much lighter than its predecessor, it's much more nimble and lively from the moment you take the wheel. That sophisticated feel extends to every model, be it the turbocharged 4-cylinder, the V6, or the V8 SS model. The 8-speed automatic transmission offers slick shifts and paddle shifting, enhancing the fun-to-drive quotient rather than diminishing it. If you prefer to row your own, there's a solid 6-speed manual transmission available. Balancing out the go is some serious whoa in the form of Brembo brakes, which are standard on the V8-powered SS. It comes together in a car offering the driving sophistication of a European luxury-sports sedan, for considerably less money.

Favorite Features

CAMARO ZL1
What's not to love? The 2017 Camaro ZL1 combines the amazingly powerful engine we already love in the Corvette Z06 with the Camaro's excellent chassis dynamics. With 0-60 mph in about 3.5 seconds, and the quarter mile flashing by in just 11.4 seconds at 127 mph, it's supercar performance for $62,000.

4-CYLINDER TURBO
And here we are on the opposite end of the performance spectrum. The 4-cylinder doesn't offer nearly the power of the V8, but its 275 horsepower ain't bad. Couple that with up to 31 mpg on the highway, and it's the ultimate cake-and-eat-it-too solution.
