2019 Chevrolet Camaro: Powertrain Features

Earlier versions of the Chevrolet Camaro were good examples of muscle cars, but the 2019 edition of the Chevrolet Camaro makes many more promises, that is expected of a sports car. In short, the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro has gathered many feathers that finally pushed it much ahead in the line of its segment, even from its closest rivals. The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro finally stands in the market as a full-fledged sports car is light in its weight and nimble in its performance nuances.

Overall Impression

At the Lexington Chevrolet we explored the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro lineup that offered a wide range of powertrains that could be as diverse from being perky to shooting out thunderous power show. Rides in any 2019 Chevrolet Camaro are equally soft which is typical for a sports car, while the design makes it stand out in its own segment attracting good number of onlookers around it.

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro earns excellent points and ratings for power management, nimble handling, attractive styling, and advanced features. Here’s an outline sketch of what and all it packs as standard and optional features in its trim model lineup.

2019 Model Year Features

The 2019 model year of the Chevrolet Camaro series introduces a 1LE handling package that is dedicated as a standard feature on the turbo-4 model of Camaro, while it is made available with all other engine models.

For the 2019 model year Chevrolet has bestowed the Camaro with a revised look, especially at the front and the rear end, while an updated infotainment system along with a new 10-speed automatic transmission make their way in the lineup, the latter being engaged for the base V-8 engine. We also observed a rear camera mirror along with the newly offered forward-collision warnings as 2019 special features.

Power Options

The 2019 lineup of Chevrolet Camaro makes a lengthy entry with its fat number of trim levels, that can be counted as LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, 1SS, 2SS, and ZL1 trim levels. All the trim models can be ordered either in coupe or convertible body styles.

Coming to the powertrain options that Chevrolet provides, the LS and LT models  of the 2019 Camaro come with a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine making 275 of hp. This engine is set as the standard, while the LT buyers can enjoy their freedom to opt for a 335-hp making 3.6-liter V-6 engine.

The SS buyers are eligible to make a 455 of hp from a capacitive 6.2-liter V-8 engine, but the ZL1 trim owners would be more powerful to get a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine to ride with, as that burps out 650 of hp with ease.

All the engines can be ordered either with a 6-speed manual transmission, while the 4- and 6-cylinder engines can be driven with an 8-speed automatic transmission. However, Chevrolet assigns a 10-speed automatic transmission for the V-8 engine. Fuel economy might decrease when you crave for more power.

All the Camaro models that we have explored at the Lexington Chevrolet dealership are quick in response, among which the turbo-4 takes 5.4 seconds to launch the speed of 60 mph from a 0, while the V-6 does the same in 5.0 seconds, the V-8 in 4.0 seconds, and the ZL1 bringing it down to 3.5 seconds.
