What’s new for the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro?
The 1LE package is now limited to the V-8 Camaro SS and ZL1.
Chevy sells the Camaro in a range of trims, from LS to LT, SS, and ZL1. All of them share a body with Coke-bottle curves and throwback styling cues, from the texture of the grille to the shape of the taillights. The interior has some of those references, too, but it’s mostly a wash of black and gray, with a touchscreen to liven it up.
Chevy backs up the Camaro’s sinister shape with acceleration and handling that range from quick and nimble to ferociously fast and tightly strung. With the base 275-hp turbo-4, it can still reach 60 mph in as little as 5.4 seconds, backed by the sounds of a hard-working economy car; with the GOAT supercharged V-8, it snaps off electric-car-like 0-60 mph runs of 3.5 seconds, and when fitted with the 1LE track package, it affixes itself to the track (or the road) with the tenacity of a sticker on a rental-apartment window.
The Camaro’s a sin pit of fun, but it’s also really only suited for two people, and they should have shorter torsos if they want to wear hats or helmets. The back seat and trunk are mere sketches of utility. The safety roster lacks automatic emergency braking. In some ways the Camaro truly still is a car of the Sixties, but at least its crash-test scores are decent.
