Motor Trend Magazine Review - First Test: 2010 Chevrolet Camaro




Quote:
Camaro fanboys and fangirls, you've waited long enough. For seven years, since its demise in 2002, you've been pining for your beloved pony, the {{{Chevrolet Camaro}}}. Through it all, you've suffered the heartache of loss, the tease of comeback buzz, the frustration of rumors and misinformation, and, finally, the bittersweet agony of anticipation.

Your patience, boys and girls, has been rewarded. Big-time. In fact, let's just cut open the award envelope right now. The Oscar for Best Fulfillment of Ponycar Hopes & Dreams goes to...Chevrolet [standing ovation, cheers, applause, whoops and hollering, delirious tears]. "You like me! You like me! You really like me!" Yes, reborn 2010 Camaro, we do. An awful lot. (Sorry, but we're going to plant the kiss on Halle Berry anyway.)

Seems like it would out handle the Mustang, not the other way around.

Wow. Huge props for the 6 as a true sports car. I claimed it wasn't a true sports car, it was a pony car. I was wrong.

The manual vs automatic pontification will start again. MT rates the auto faster to 60 while the others put the manual faster (although some recorded best times of about 5). Just goes to prove that regardless of tranny this is a fast car.

Now the rest of the world knows about the camaro and not just us die hards. Bet the dealerships will be busy tomarrow, maybe not so much at the Dodge and Ford dealerships.
