Camaro doesn’t handle in snow? Think again (VIDEO)
 
As featured on Homepage.

In honor of the Winter Olympics, Chevy has released a video of the 2010 Camaro driving in less than favorable conditions. While the Camaro doesn’t always get the credit it deserves for winter driving, I think you’ll be impressed by how well it performs in the thick snow. To top it off, all of this was done using 19'' all-season tires.



simply stunning :clap:

You will never see me doing that in my camaro. That's why I have my truck.

AdnanHfuda 02-23-2010 03:26 PM

'vehicle featured is a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, with V6 304HP and 19'' all-season tires' looks like it is

Snow is definitely not a black Camaro's friend.

Can't play in the snow? :iono: That sh$t is cold and wet and you'd probably have to wear like a coat or something right?...lmao I'll stick to dry pavement and sunny skies but thanks:laugh:

how is it a poor camaro? :iono: way i see it is, its a car even though it is a highly loved one. pampering it and keeping it hidden is something i cant comprehend unless your planning to keep the car simply to sell it. i say drive it through all the snow and grime you want. repairs can be made, and washes can be given

I'd like to find a parking lot with snow to have a little fun. But with my Jeep. Not my Camaro. lol

It's not the snow on the car I'd be worried about, its the things I'd end up running into after I got carried away. :laugh:

Me too. I loved it and there are people jumping to conclusions saying that the video is BS.

Read the description! 19" All season tires. Notice no halos on it, so it does not have the RS upgrade.

I kind of wish people would take the time and read their owners manual before trying summer only tires in the snow, and posting their ignorance of how this video is BS.

Pirelli scorpions makes it fun in the snow :happyanim:

Have you been to california?? We can play it in the dry, sand, snow, dirt.

02-23-2010 04:46 PM

I am failing to see what is so impressive. It is not like it is handling turns, making sudden stops, or pulling out on snow covered climbs. Almost any vehicle can plow through a snow field with momentum and all season tires. Now if they would slap some Blizzaks on it and take it around a snow ring, that would be entertaining. I'd rather have a RWD with winter tires over a FWD with winter tires any day.

Also, as far as being harmful, snow is no different than rain, or humidity in the air....it is the salt that becomes the problem.

Wizzer 02-23-2010 04:46 PM

I only have one thing to say! Mudflaps. lol

Looks cool thanks for vid

Yes we can! I was in Bear Valley last weekend, 80 inches! It was great! :D

Cool video, I love the way the snow was flying off the tires. Originally from Mass., I miss driving in the snow. :( Had a lot of fun in my Camaros back there.

American Muscle 02-23-2010 04:52 PM

Good to see as im sitting at work in Connecticut with a blizzard going on ha. There are a lot of people in the area that drive mustangs in the winter, don't see why you can't throw some snow tires on the camaro and let her rip.

American Muscle 02-23-2010 04:54 PM

Just glad the town uses sand and not salt for the roads as well

marcgo2 02-23-2010 05:00 PM

Snow isn't the problem, ice is.
