Confusion: 4 steering systems (2010-2013)?

I have some confusion perhaps some here could help me out with.

Comparing brochures and specs from 2010-2013 there appears to be 4 different steering systems?

[2010]

Brochure #1 - Power, Rack-and-Pinion, Variable RATIO

[2011]

Brochure #1 - Power, Rack-and-Pinion, Variable RATIO

[2012]

Brochure #1 - Power, Rack-and-Pinion, Variable RATIO
Brochure #2 - Power, Rack-and-Pinion, Variable EFFORT

[2013]

Brochure #1 - Power HYDRAULIC , Rack-and-Pinion, Variable EFFORT
Brochure #2 - Power ELECTRIC, Rack-and-Pinion, Variable EFFORT

1. Are these 4 different steering systems? or is "Power, Rack-and-Pinion, Variable RATIO" and "Power, Rack-and-Pinion, Variable EFFORT" the SAME thing (reworded)
2. If so, does that then mean that "Power HYDRAULIC , Rack-and-Pinion, Variable EFFORT" IS infact "Power , Rack-and-Pinion, Variable EFFORT", AND "Power, Rack-and-Pinion, Variable RATIO" are all the SAME just reworded? which would mean there was 2 available:

HYDRAULIC and ELECTRONIC.

thanks very much

In 2012 when the ZL1 came out it had electronic power steering, where the other models of Camaro all had hydraulic. But for 2013 they were all changed to electric power steering.

As for the Ratio and Effort wording, to me it would mean the same but I am not 100% sure on that. I'm sure someone on here with a deeper knowledge of things will chime in shortly!
