“The Camaro is designed, engineered and executed to set a new standard in its class,” said Marc Comeau, vice-president of sales, service and marketing for GM of Canada. “Even in its base form, the eye-catching new Camaro features a sophisticated V6 powerplant which delivers spirited driving and surprisingly good fuel economy, plus a comprehensive suite of handling, safety and convenience technologies to fit the lives of today’s consumers.”

The Camaro will be offered as the V6-powered LS and LT models, and as the V8-powered SS, all with six-speed transmissions.
