Pros

If you desire a touch of retro cool in your modern muscle car, you’ll like the 2018 Chevy Camaro. Although its refinement, fuel economy and performance are way beyond anything offered by Camaros of the past, its exterior design is reminiscent of the perennially popular 1969 model.

Cons

If you live in a snowy climate and must have all-wheel drive, the Camaro’s option list will not satisfy. The Dodge Challenger, however, offers all-wheel drive on the V6 model, and it’s a standard feature on the Subaru WRX, the 305-horsepower WRX STI and the 350-horsepower Ford Focus RS.

What's New For 2018

This year Chevy pulled out all the stops and created the 2018 Camaro ZL1 ILE. It’s the fastest, quickest, best-handling, best-stopping and most powerful Camaro ever. It’s a big-winged wonder with special adjustable suspension, thinner rear glass to save weight, Brembo brakes and a 650-horsepower supercharged V8.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro Expert Review

Now in its 51st year of production, the Chevy Camaro is sophisticated well beyond its muscle-car heritage. More mature than its predecessors with increased refinement and a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine making 275 horsepower, the rear-wheel-drive 2018 Chevrolet Camaro shares much of its components with the Cadillac ATS. Don’t worry; the 2018 Camaro hasn’t lost its edge. Although it’s more fuel-efficient than ever, the new Camaro still packs plenty of muscle, offering optional V8s with as much as 650 horsepower. Many models are offered, including the V8-powered SS, the track-ready ILE, the supercharged ZL1 and the quickest and fastest Camaro ever made, the ZL1 ILE. Available as a coupe or convertible, the new Camaro competes with the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger.

Driving the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro

Now in its sixth generation, the 2018 Chevy Camaro is much smaller, lighter and more refined than its predecessor. It still delivers a visceral driving experience that will satisfy any enthusiast, but it doesn’t beat you or sacrifice comfort for performance like some Camaros of the past. The standard 275-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is strong enough to back up the Camaro’s sexy styling, but the 335-horsepower V6 is quicker off the line and offers a more satisfying driving experience. Step up to the V8-powered SS if you can. Its 455-horsepower 6.2-liter engine is shared with the Corvette and delivers serious performance when you want it. And its V8 rumble is intoxicating. With 650 horsepower the supercharged V8 in the Camaro ZL1 will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand tall. Although we prefer the 6-speed manual, the paddle-shift 8-speed automatic transmission is a winner.

Favorite Features

CAMARO ILE
Available with a 335-horsepower V6 or on the 455-horsepower V8-powered Camaro SS, the ILE’s more aggressive suspension betters the Camaro’s handling and gives it track-day capability. The package includes Brembo brakes, sticky Goodyear Eagle F1 tires and the ILE’s signature black hood. Recaro seats are also available.

CHEVY MYLINK
Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system is one of the best with quick response and a very intuitive interface. It comes with an optional 8-inch touch screen, onboard Wi-Fi and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. You can also connect to your Camaro with a phone app, and wireless phone charging is available.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro Interior

This is the best Camaro interior since Chevy’s muscle car first hit the streets in 1967. Although outward visibility is still compromised by the Camaro’s high beltline, the 2018 Camaro interior is very comfortable and combines clever design, cool styling and solid ergonomics. The clever design reduces dashboard clutter by incorporating the trim rings around the center vents to control temperature and fan speed. The seats offer great support in corners, and the MyLink infotainment system features a large touch screen. Heated and ventilated front seats are standard on the 2LT trim level. The rear seat can handle adults in a pinch.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro Exterior

The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro sports clean, tight lines to go with its tidy dimensions, owing a little to the classic 1969 model. Although it’s similar to the previous-generation Camaro, the 2018 model is more modern with impossibly thin headlights, bulging hindquarters and a low-slung roof. Camaro ZL1 models get a deep grille and bumper to cool its supercharged engine, and the 1LE looks equally aggressive with mesh grille inserts, a front spoiler and a satin-black hood and mirrors. The new ZL1 ILE model gets even more aggressive aerodynamics including a massive rear spoiler to increase high-speed stability.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro Standard Features

The base-model 2018 Chevy Camaro is the 1LT, which comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine connected to a 6-speed manual transmission. There's also a driver-selector mode that includes Snow and Ice, Tour and Sport. The 7-inch touch-screen audio system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, dual USB ports, aux input, and GM's 4GLTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Bluetooth, automatic climate control, and a color driver-information display between the gauges are all standard. Upscale features include push-button start and keyless entry, power driver and passenger seats, and a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel. Multiple airbags and advanced stability control help keep you safe.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro Options

On the new Camaro’s options list are an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, two different Brembo-brake upgrades, an upgraded audio system with a larger 8-inch touch screen, and an enhanced driver-information center similar to the Corvette’s. The Camaro SS adds available magnetic ride-control suspension, a power sunroof, in-dash navigation and a dual-mode exhaust system for more V8 rumble. A remote engine-start system is available. Optional safety technology includes blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, Lane Change Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, all of which helps minimize the Camaro’s compromised outward visibility.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro Engine

There are four engines available in the 2018 Camaro. There's the standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, with a muscular 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Step up to the 3.6-liter V6 with 335 horsepower it offers more power but less torque than the 4-cylinder, and offers cylinder deactivation for better fuel economy. But a Camaro needs a V8, and in the Camaro SS there's the 6.2-liter V8, shared with the Corvette, pumping out 455 horsepower. Step up to the Camaro ZL1 and you're looking at a 650-horsepower supercharged version, making it the most powerful Camaro ever. All engines connect to a 6-speed manual that includes automatic rev matching on V8 models or an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters; Camaro ZL1 models get an optional 10-speed automatic.

2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4
275 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm
295 lb-ft of torque @ 3,000-4,500 rpm

How Much Does the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro Cost?

The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) on a 2018 Chevrolet Camaro LT coupe starts at about $27,500, including the $995 destination charge. The V6 engine adds about $1,500, and the 8-speed automatic transmission adds another $1,500. If you want V8 power, a 2018 Camaro SS starts just around $38,000 with a manual transmission. The all-conquering Camaro ZL1 starts above $62,000. The track-focused ZL1 1LE model starts around $71,000. Convertible models run about $7,000 higher than coupes. Thanks to a generally higher level of standard equipment, prices are pretty much on-target with its crosstown rival, the Ford Mustang, and both the Ford and Chevy cost less than the Dodge Challenger. Check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price calculator to see what others in your area paid for their new 2018 Camaro. Over the long haul, the Camaro should hold its value a little better than its Ford and Dodge rivals.

"6th gen Camaro's rock!"

Fun to drive, great handling, great sound
Rough ride, small fit
Just going to leave a short review to let people know how awesome this vehicle is. I came from driving a 2015 v6 Camaro, to swap up to a 2016 1SS Camaro, and man this thing is crazy fun and fast! Very good looking, lots of compliments, exhaust note is so beautiful, and it is incredibly reliable. The best part is, the gas mileage is great with Chevy's Cylinder deactivation technology or whatever it is, it will kick your car into a " 4 cylinder " mode when traveling at a consistent speed, and this will let your car easily average 30 MPG. This is my daily driver, and this car is awesome.Read less

"Good Performance, Horrible Design"

comfortable ride, hugging seats, looks cool
horrible blindspots, hard to get into, long doors
Had the horrible displeasure of driving a 2019 camaro for about 2500 miles. I am a huge chevy fan, and have a corvette myself. I was very excited to try the new camaro, but wow what a terribly designed car. Despite being the size of a boat, it does move well, but you would expect more space in such a massive vehicle. There is very little trunk space. The back seats are nearly non-existent and very difficult to get into, the front seats dont even recline for a napping passenger or such, and the doors are so long you better have 6ft of clearance on each side of the car to get in or out. Very easy to get parked in even when people dont mean to. The ride, drive train, and performance are good. But the design of this vehicle gives it the worst blind spots I've ever experienced. I had a 2000 SS Camaro many years ago, and thought that had bad blind spots.... But this was in a whole other league. You essentially have to guess and cross you fingers when changing lanes. I can't believe the NHTSA would approve a vehicle with such abysmal blind-spots and very poor mirrors. Also the emergency flashers button is located in the worst possible spot, easily covered up by items resting in the area.Read less
