  • First Generation: Cars include models years 1967 to 1969 with GM offering 60 factory options. During those initial years, Camaro was the pace car for the Indianapolis 500 race.
  • Second Generation: From 1970 to 1981, Camaros rolled off the production line offering consumers an air induction hood in 1980-81 models and similar F-body platform styling found in original models.
  • Third Generation: Camaros from 1982 to 1992 were the first cars to have fuel-injection four-cylinder engines and hatchback styling. The 1992 model includes stripes and a spoiler plaque.
  • Fourth Generation: Produced from 1993 to 2002, Chevys beginning in 1998 have bigger wheels and tires and improved gearing ratios providing faster acceleration. The company produced the 1997 special edition car to celebrate 30 years of Camaro production.
  • Fifth Generation: With a lull in sales, the car wasn't produced from 2003 to 2009. The newly designed, sleeker-looking model debuted in 2010 with upgraded engines and more horsepower added to the 2011 to 2015 models.
  • Sixth Generation: From 2016 and beyond, cars come with 275hp, 335hp, 455 hp, and other engines. The 2017 Camaro ZL1 tops out at 205 mph.

The GM-approved car provides versatile transportation. Historically, the vehicles have a proven history of reliability. You can use it to commute to work, travel safely in inclement weather, or pick up your kids from school.

A Camaro is designed with aerodynamic curves so the vehicle handles better and gives you better gas mileage. Models equipped with rear-wheel drive also contribute to better handling. That's because the drivetrain's weight is equally positioned from the front to the rear of the car.

Over the years GM equipped Camaros with different versions of V-4, V-6 and V-8 engines and two to eight-speed manual and automatic transmissions providing buyers with more choices.

  • Some buyers purchase a Camaro strictly for its curb appeal and muscle car features.
