If you're a diehard muscle car enthusiast, chances are you feel a Chevrolet Camaro just isn't a Camaro unless it packs a big V8. And that's exactly what the Chevrolet Camaro SS has, boasting a revised 6.2-liter V8 that produces 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. Not long ago, that kind of muscle was reserved for supercars, but today it can be had in a coupe with a base price of around $37,000. The icing on the Camaro's cake is that in addition to sticker prices within grasp of many potential buyers, its resale value stands above rivals in the High Performance Car category.
All-new for 2016, the Camaro is best known for its ultra-aggressive looks, and the 6.2-liter engine employed in the SS more than backs them up. Power is routed to the rear wheels through either a standard 6-speed manual or quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. In addition to its ability to scream from 0 to 60 mph in four seconds flat, the 2016 Camaro SS is surprisingly adept at attacking corners thanks to a lighter chassis and suspension components.
For its performance prowess, one does not even need to drive the Camaro to appreciate it. Like its predecessor, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro stands out for its bold-yet-sophisticated looks. Just standing still in a parking lot, the Camaro seems to sizzle.
With supercar looks and performance, it's easy to see why buyers still flock to the Camaro SS. They'll surely enjoy their sports cars now, and will continue to benefit down the road when it comes time to turn over the keys.
