The Camaro SS's combination of price, performance, and panache topples the existing muscle car order.

The Hemi-powered Challenger SRT8 is too heavy to keep pace and the face-lifted Mustang GT is trumped by Camaro's sophistication and speed.

Loyal Chevy fans who've waited six years for this day finally have the car that they deserve.

The new Camaro also has the breadth of character needed to draw defectors back from the import brink.
