The current generation of the iconic pony car has been around for four years and there’s no doubt it will remain in production for couple more. Still, we don’t expect to see any particular changes in the near future. So, the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro should carry on in the same way, with minor updates only. By minor updates, we think of new color options, a couple of additions to the list of standard equipment, and similar things. Also, a 10-speed automatic transmission is expected to become standard across the pretty much whole range.
This means you may count on a familiar layout, which is all about providing excellent performances at an affordable price. One one side, driving experience is excellent. On the other, you won’t find any luxury and convenience inside the cabin. Also, the everyday practicality is at a pretty low level as well. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro will be a great value. This especially refers to those who want to enjoy the great ride but don’t want to pay for a premium badge.
2021 Chevrolet Camaro Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, we won’t see any particular change for the next year. Moreover, the latest reports suggest that the only notable exterior novelty will be the addition of the Wild Cherry Tincoat finish. On the other side, Rally Green metallic and Garnet Red Tintcoat colors will be deleted. The rest of the design characteristics will remain the same. This means you may count on the same exterior design, which comes in two variants, as a coupe and as convertible. Mechanically, this model hasn’t changed since 2016. That’s not a bad thing at all, considering the great handling and all other benefits the current Alpha platform provides. Of course, keep in mind that the exact setup largely depends on the version you pick, and this model comes in multiple variants.
As we’ve already mentioned, this isn’t a very practical car and the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro won’t be any better either. Simply, the cabin is tight and rear seats feel cramped even for children. On the other side, the front row is spacious and comfortable, while we particularly like the seats, which are very supportive. Another complaint that goes to this sports car is for the cargo area. You may count on no more than 9.1 cubic feet of trunk space in coupe models, while the convertible is even worse. Still, the bigger problem than volume is the fact that the trunk opening is ridiculously small.
When it comes to the dashboard design and overall interior quality, things are pretty much okay. Materials are fine, as well as the aesthetics but many rivals look far better from the inside.
When it comes to the list of standard equipment, we already know a couple of novelties for the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro. One of them is the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the list of standard features across the whole lineup. So, all models will be equipped with things like a 7-inch touch screen, a six-speaker audio system, a Wi-Fi hot spot, two USB ports, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Higher trim levels will also offer goodies like an 8-inch driver information display in the gauge cluster, wireless device charging, an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, a Bose premium audio system, satellite radio and more.
On the other side, we don’t expect bigger changes in terms of safety features, so a rearview camera should remain the only standard safety features when it comes to more advanced technologies. On the other side, goodies like head-up display, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert, and a rearview camera mirror will remain optional.
2021 Chevrolet Camaro Engines
The list of engines in the offer will remain the same. So, base versions will feature a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of features. Besides decent power, this engine also returns pretty decent 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Of course, there is also a familiar 3.6-liter V6, which in this case delivers around 335 horsepower.
The real deal starts with V8 models and there are two of them in the offer. The first one is a 6.2-liter unit with a max output of 455 horsepower. This seems like a perfect measure for a pony car like this. Those who prefer more extreme performances can pick the same engine but in a version with 650 horsepower for impressive performances.
2021 Chevrolet Camaro Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Chevrolet Camaro sometime in the second half of the year. The exact details about the launch date are yet to come. Also, we don’t expect changes in price, so base models should go around 26.000 dollars. Of course, key rivals are the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger.
