2012 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS 2dr Coupe Overview
With design cues evocative of the legendary 1969 model, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro combines the spirit of the classic American muscle car with the fuel efficiency, safety, handling, technology and build quality expected in a modern performance coupe. The new-for-2012 ZL1 is the most powerful production Camaro ever.
The Camaro is available in four trims: LS, LT, SS and ZL1. The LS and LT are powered by a 323-hp direct-injected 3.6-liter V6 with a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic transmission. The SS's 6.2-liter V8 generates 426 horsepower with the standard six-speed manual, and 400 horsepower with the optional six-speed automatic with sequential shift control. The heart of the ZL1 is a supercharged 6.2-liter engine is SAE-rated at 580 horsepower and 556 lb.-ft. of torque. Standard equipment on all Camaros includes independent rear suspension, StabiliTrak stability control with traction control, six airbags, air conditioning, OnStar and SiriusXM satellite radio. The LT adds fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels and power seats, while the SS features unique front fascia, sport suspension, Brembo brakes, and a limited slip differential. The ZR1's standard magnetic fluid-filled shock absorbers react instantly to road conditions and driver inputs, and Performance Traction Management, the launch control feature (manual transmission only), automatically modulates engine torque for the best-possible acceleration without excessive wheel spin. The ZL1 also features a rear-differential cooler, electric power steering, an integrated engine- and transmission-oil cooler, leather seating surfaces with suede microfiber inserts, distinctive front fascia and hood with air extractors, unique 20-inch forged aluminum wheels and rear-park assist with a rear-view camera display. The available RS Package includes 20-inch aluminum wheels with performance tires and distinctive high-intensity headlights with a "halo ring" display. Optional equipment includes Bluetooth wireless connectivity, power sunroof, performance tires, Boston Acoustics sound system and a variety of exterior stripe packages.
For 2012, the revised 3.6-liter V6's horsepower is bumped from 312 to 323. The new FE4 suspension debuts as a performance improvement for the SS coupe, focusing on more refined handling. The taillamps that had been a part of the RS appearance package in 2011 and a rear spoiler are now standard on all trims. A new Rear Vision Package adds a rearview camera system and an auto-dimming mirror to the existing Rear Park Assist feature. Interior updates include a revised instrument panel appearance, with new instrument graphics and trim, as well as a new steering wheel design and a power lift feature for the front passenger seat. The big news for 2012 is the debut of the ZL1 trim, the highest-performing and the most technically advanced Camaro ever produced.
