What Makes the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro Such a Great Sports Car?

If only one sports car could evoke thoughts of power, performance, speed, agility, and classic styling, it would be none other than the Chevrolet Camaro. As echos from the legendary Camaros of the past continue to ring through history, the 2021 Camaro carries Chevrolet’s vision of American muscle into the future. The 2021 Camaro is characterized by the latest automotive technology, powerful engines, responsive handling, and available safety features. If you are ready to experience pure adrenaline, you are prepared to drive the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro.

Classic Styling With a Modern Twist

The 2021 Camaro is retro-styling at its best, but there’s no mistaking the modern touches. You will find that Chevrolet reached way back in the Camaro’s past for the front and the sides. The high-set, wide front grille and the Coke-bottle shape created by its tucked-in center section and wide fenders are direct throwbacks to the late 1960s. On the other hand, the 2021 model boasts a low roof and high beltline to create a sleek profile instantly recognizable as a modern Camaro.

Crisp lines, soft curves, and custom Chevy wheels further accentuate current sports car trends as reminders of the Camaro’s place in the modern automotive scene. As should be with any sports car, the Camaro is offered in many forms for your driving pleasure. You can have the 2021 Camaro in the LS, LT, LT1, SS, and ZL1 trim levels. There is a Camaro for everyone, and each of these trim levels is loaded with available features.

Choose Your Engine

Not only does the 2021 Camaro have the look, but it has the muscle you have come to expect from Chevrolet to back it up. With four engines differing in power and performance, the Camaro caters to every taste, mild or extreme. The first engine is a 2.0-liter turbo-4 with 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This might be the least of the Camaro’s engines, but it’s certainly not last with a 0-60 mph time of only 5.4 seconds.

The next step up is a 3.6-liter V-6 with 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque. This engine begins to show the Camaro’s muscle with a little more grunt and a more pronounced exhaust note. The V-6 engine also brings the Camaro’s 0-60 mph time down to 5.0 seconds. Next is a 6.2-liter V-8 with 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. The 6.2-liter’s full sound lets you know that a Chevrolet has arrived on the scene. It allows the Camaro to roll out a 0-60 mph time of only 4.0 seconds.

At the pinnacle, with enough power to rattle your bones, awaits the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 with a whopping 650 horsepower and equally matched 650 pound-feet of torque. This monstrosity of an engine gobbles up 0-60 mph in only 3.5 seconds, and if that isn’t enough, its quarter of a mile time is an impressive 11.4 seconds. This engine is found in the ZL1 trim level Camaro and allowed the car to score a 7:16 Nurburgring lap time (when equipped with the 1LE package).

Every version of the 2021 Camaro can have a six-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching or a 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Each of these transmissions efficiently transfers the Camaro’s power to a genuine sports car’s rear-wheel-drive system. Regardless of your need for speed, there is a 2021 Camaro that’s perfect for you.


At the top of Chevrolet performance stands the 2021 Camaro ZL1. The ZL1 is the epitome of what a sports car should be with its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine, capable transmission options, available 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package, and Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers. From its aggressive styling, stance, and V-8 growl to its precision handling, braking, and power transfer, the ZL1 is everything you could ever want in a sports car.

The ZL1’s 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque set you back in the seat with exhilarating acceleration. An available six-speed manual transmission puts you in complete control of the ZL1’s power and torque. An available 10-speed automatic transmission always seems to be in the correct gear and offers paddle shifters for added driver control and fun.

The available 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package provides added style and function with features such as:

  • Satin black-wrapped hood
  • Standard black mirrors
  • Rear spoiler
  • Front splitter
  • RECARO performance seats

Extreme power requires extreme stopping power, and the ZL1’s upgraded Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers bring it to a smooth stop every time. Braking is crucial for everyday driving and negotiating curvy mountain roads, and the ZL1 handles each of these scenarios with ease. Some of these features are available on other trim levels as well, so check with a Huffines Chevrolet sales expert for more information about how to build your new Camaro.
