Width Dimension of Camaro ?

Hi,

Just been looking at specs for this car and website says its 75.5 inches wide.

Question - is that the width of car including the side mirrors OR the actual car itself (and not taking into consideration the mirrors)???

I am asking as my garage door is only 90 inches wide - pretty tight.......

I will not buy the car unless I can keep it warm at night

Well the Mustang is 73.9 without mirros and 79.3 with mirrors, so I would guess that 75.5 is without mirrors. So I would say about 81-81.5 with mirrors, judging by this pic. It will fit, one of my cars has just under 2" clearance on either side of garage, and it is not too bad. Again that is assuming 75.5 is not including mirrors, it may well be the other way around, I am just guessing.

Damn 29.9 inches of rear leg room is a joke. My Snoozuki has 35.9 and my friends barely fit back there.

Fellas, no need to search the web for this information. Utilize our camaro "WIKI" at the top of this page. It has everything that you need to know.

I've had 4 in Number 3 with no big problem. Not spacious, but very doable. If you want more room you should consider a sedan.

Just read what everybody says and still cannot see a figure for width including the mirrors.....

I am guessing nobody knows yet - I thought Chevy would release that info...

Thanks all, Nick

That's awesome news - didn't know that!

Do they do that with the press of a button or manually?
