There are a lot of things to be noticed about the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro. Of course, the Camaro ZL1 gets all the views thanks to its 650-hp V8, but that’s not the only Camaro you can buy. If you are only interested in style, you can choose a capable turbocharged four-cylinder or V6 engine. There’s also a 6.2-liter V8 that has more than enough performance for racing fans.
In addition, the 2018 Camaro also has a solid handling, smooth ride on the highway and many standard equipment. If you have not been in the Camaro for a long time, you may be surprised how smooth this latest version is. But the Camaro still has flaws, and rivals take where it goes. Like the Ford Mustang, a little more feasible and practical for everyday driving. While the Dodge Challenger beat both with the look of retro car muscle and useful back room. At the end, with a combination of precision, strength and look, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro still attract attention.
