Default Chevy Camaro SS Official 0-to-60 Time: 4.7 Seconds

Quote:
In addition to the fuel-sipping EPA numbers of 16 MPG City, 24 MPG Highway, we're told the 0-to-60 time of the new Chevy Camaro SS is a tire-squealing 4.7 seconds.

Yes, we know it's our second Camaro post of the day, but come on, if there's one thing a muscle car deserves a post on is a 0-to-60 time. Now of course those numbers are GM's official numbers, so take 'em for a grain of salt until the buff books bang the new mullet-mobile away themselves on the drag strip. Still, for the moment, that's a pretty amazing number considering how hefty of a beast the new Camaro is. But with 426 HP with the stick and 400 HP with the auto tranny, that's not too shabby at all.

We're wondering how the 300 HP V6 will manage on the strip ourselves.

We're in Michigan today to drive the 2010 Chevy Camaro. First news? V6 gets 18 MPG city, 29 MPG highway. The V8? 16 city, 24 highway. More details below and how the competition stacks up.

You won't be able to get any driving impressions out of us until 6:00 PM EST Friday, but for the moment we can report the EPA has officially rated the V6 Camaro at a Muscle Car War-topping 29 MPG on the highway. For the big ol' V8, as you'd expect, the fuel economy's a bit lower, but still an impressive 16 MPG in the city and 24 on the highway.

The 2010 Chevy Camaro SS officially lapped Germany's Nurburgring in 8:19. How does this stack up to other GM products?

As you can see, the new Camaro SS is quicker than the Pontiac G8 GXP around the 'Ring but, predictably, slower than both the Cadillac CTS-V and Corvette ZR1. At a fraction of a cost it's hard to complain about the performance.

Pontiac G8 GXP
Around The Ring In: 8:30

Camaro SS
Around The Ring In: 8:19

Cadillac CTS-V
Around The Ring In: 7:59

Corvette ZR1
Around The Ring In: 7:26

The Cobalt SS T/C did the ring in 8:22, though.. and at 8:19, 6 grand cheaper, the Cobalt SS looks kinda nice. But that 6 grand also gets you a much nicer car, it's a toss up.

Chevy Camaro SS, LS Vs. The Competition: By The Numbers

By Wes Siler, 1:30 PM on Wed Mar 18 2009, 2,180 views
Did you know the 2010 Camaro SS has more horsepower-per-dollar than the Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8? That the Cobalt SS has a higher top speed than either? That and more below.
We drove both the V6 and V8 versions of the 2010 Chevy Camaro on Monday and, while we can't tell you about that till Friday, March 20th at 6pm (EST), we can take a look at how both Camaros stack up against the competition on paper. Will the clear bang-for-your-buck advantage translate to the driving experience? Check back Friday at 6:00 PM to find out.
All the models featured in this comparison are stock, base-spec vehicles. Where possible, manufacturer's official numbers have been used.
