The early 1900s marked an exciting time in automotive history. Some of the biggest company names in car design and manufacturing opened their doors at this time, creating the products that would become the foundation for a rich and long history in U.S. automotive tradition. Of course, Chevrolet is part of that groundbreaking tradition and has been respected for its attention to detail and consistently superior products since the beginning.
Chevrolet originated from the partnership of Louis Chevrolet, a noted racecar driver and engineer, and William C. Durant. With financial backing from several sources, the two founders created a company and car line to compete with Henry Ford’s company for the American public’s devotion. The company eventually merged with General Motors Company in 1918. The name Chevrolet continues to be used for specific car and truck models with the same dedication to excellence as in the past.
Currently, Chevrolet offers a varied line of cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans to meet the needs and demands of its consumers. Every year new vehicles join the lineup and consistently rate high with consumers and industry leaders.About the Chevrolet Camaro
Chevrolet offers a wide variety of cars to American and foreign consumers, but few get the attention that the Camaro commands. While there have been updates and changes made to the original body, suspension, and other operating systems of the Camaro, it is still known for its awe-inspiring design and function.Chevrolet Camaro Features
The 2012 line of Camaros shows some exciting improvements over past years’ designs and creates a lot of talk among muscle car enthusiasts. As in years past, Chevrolet has introduced several different model options for the Camaro, each one with new, improved features.
As always, the Camaro offers coupe and convertible styles in the SS and ZL1 trims. The SS coupe contains a pristine V-6 engine and some updated features such as a new steering wheel and improved cabin space. Camaro fans will also find a reorganized instrument panel and a revised suspension. The new suspension promises to provide greater maneuverability. This Camaro style continues to feature the RS taillights with chrome trim and dark lenses, as well as a standard rear spoiler.
The impressive 2012 Camaro ZL1 style offers a massive 6.2-liter, V-8 engine that supplies plenty of power to this machine. The motor provides 570 horsepower, making this year’s model the fastest and most capable Camaro yet. A dual-mode exhaust; large, road-gripping tires; and adaptive suspension dampers help complete the package.
This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Camaro and Chevrolet has decided to go all out with a special edition of the car to commemorate the occasion. The special anniversary Camaro package offers 2SS and 2LT models. The package includes 20-inch wheels, accent stitching for the car’s black leather upholstery, and high-quality flash paint in red with charcoal gray stripes for a look that can’t be duplicated.Chevrolet Camaro Evolution
