2011 Chevrolet Camaro Ridelust Review

Not long ago I a review on the 2011 Chevrolet SS. It was Inferno Orange with racing stripes and a 6-speed and boy oh boy did it get looks going down the Looking like the great though didn#8217;t come some pitfalls. For example, I went the car attracted attention meant that parking it in a lot was a bit nerve racking. Then was the issue of the $37,640 price

Sure it was steep, but with 426 hp and 420 of torque on tap, as well as brakes, it was a fair price to pay for the that the Camaro SS delivers. however love the looks of the new Camaro but simply can#8217;t 37k for a decked out SS. Enter now, the Chevrolet Camaro 2LT.

Not long after I dropped off the SS I was to get my hands on a 2011 Camaro 2LT with the RS package. This it had all the same bells and whistles as the SS sans the 6.2-liter V8, Brembo and 6-speed manual transmission. like GM#8217;s stellar display, console mounted gauges and great leather seats were all still and accounted for though.

This car was done in Cyber Grey had a healthy 3.6-liter 312 hp V6, and a 6-speed transmission with TAPshift shift controls on the steering

Interior wise the Camaro 2LT was down a bit compared to the bright interior of the SS. It definitely had a softer and was much more subdued a visual perspective, something I most buyers would If you opt for the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro 2LT the RS package you gain the following:

• 20#8243; x 8#8243; front and x 9#8243; rear flangeless, aluminum wheels with Silver finish.

• Body-color ditch molding

• HID headlamps LED halo ring and RS unique lamps.

• Rear spoiler

in mind that this was the time I#8217;d been the wheel of a V6 powered Camaro, and I to say that I came away impressed. While it#8217;s not a ship, the 312 hp V6 gets the car to 60 mph in just 6 seconds. What really though is the 278 lb-ft of torque, as is what places the V6 Camaro in hooligan territory. Switch the control off, plant right foot and you#8217;ll the rear tires with no

While the engine does good power, it suffers a weak exhaust note sounds very metallic pressed hard. The trade-off is great fuel economy to the of 18 city mpg /29 highway mpg. is something that the Camaro SS never hope to achieve.

Plus it takes good regular gasoline, not premium the SS.

The 6-speed automatic transmission works well with the V6. are smooth with no real but I#8217;d stay away using the TAPshift manual controls if I were you. this option just you to slow lazy shifts will annoy you.

just leave the transmission in and let it do its thing, you#8217;ll be happier, me.

Now even though the Camaro 2LT come with the same brakes as the SS, have no fear I found the brakes to be quite I did quite a few hard stops this thing and never did the car get out of shape. Stops were and true and the car was brought to a halt quickly. Handling was also on as well. Due to weather, my tester equipped with Pirelli tires and even with mounted, the car handled surprisingly

Obviously these are not performance but it just goes to show you how the Camaro#8217;s road going is.

After a week of tooling in the Camaro I found that I was quite fond of the car. it is almost identical to the SS, it gets better fuel economy and its 312 hp V6 you with plenty of road grunt. Price wise the Chevrolet Camaro 2LT stickered at which is not bad for what you get.

Keep in mind though you can buy a stripper Camaro SS with a manual for just $1,500 At the end of the day you need to decide which car your needs. The Camaro SS or the 2LT.

Understand though if you opt for the Camaro 2LT that you are in no way skimping, as is a great automobile, with performance and even better Happy motoring#8230;
