2017 Chevrolet Camaro Performance Specs and Features
As Michigan drivers, we know how much of the value of a car lies in its engine, and that’s why we devote so much attention to the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro performance. Flint and Clio, MI drivers looking for a powerful, sporty new coupe need to know they can trust what’s under the hood. And with three engine choices and a host of performance-oriented features, the Camaro is ready to deliver.
A vehicle with the DNA of a muscle car needs to have engine options to suit all of its potential drivers. Whether you’re here for the raw power, the classic good looks, or both, there’s a powertrain for you; see how the three sets of 2017 Chevrolet Camaro performance specs break down:
2.0L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder: Don’t be fooled by the four-cylinder engine; the turbocharger ensure the Camaro’s base powertrain keeps pace with its predecessors, kicking out 275 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque.
3.6L V6: With 335 hp and 284 lb.-ft. of torque, the V6 offers the old-school, full-bodied feeling many drivers want from a car like the Camaro, and the active fuel management system leaves this fuel-sipping car practically begging for joyrides.
6.2L V8: When power is the end goal, Chevrolet delivers with the 6.2L V8, rated at 455 hp and 455 lb.-ft. of torque. With a 0-60 mph time of only 4 seconds, this sports car feels at home on the highway or the track.
Other Performance Features
While the engines might be responsible for the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro performance specs, they’re just a part of the picture when we talk about the overall feel of a car. These other performance features help ensure the Camaro lives up to your expectations:
