KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Scott Oldham -- Contributing Editor


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.

You'll Like This Car If...

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.

You May Not Like This Car If...

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.

Driving It Driving Impressions

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.
