Driving in the winter on the highways is a LOT different than that video, you can drive that way with bald tires on ice and snow out in the middle of a field with a little speed, wait until you are on a road with guard rails, semi trucks and turns and intersections. LOL I drove for almost 40 years in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, even drove down Kelly Mtn in Cape Breton in the middle of a storm, but not by choice.

After saying this, a camaro with all season tires can probably be driven with ease at reasonable speed and a driver with at least half a brain on snow and ice, but next time you are driving in a storm or shortly after a storm, check out who is laying upside down with all four wheels spinning... you got it the 4x4's

Born and raised in Buffalo and Binghamton, NY...Love it, and miss it! If we get a sprinkle out here, California shuts down! Can't say I really miss the cold though Nice video!

Cool video but I agree with one of the comments on youtube:

"This video tells me nothing. It's a bunch of short clips thrown together and it doesn't exemplify true winter driving at all. It's not hard to drive in a straight line...."

But... it is still a fun video to watch and really is for entertainment not to fortify any strong defence for snow handling ability

absolutely the case ALL the time in Colorado - ice and slick road conditions, 4 wheel drive = 4 wheel slide

regardless, I'm glad I didn't order the RS pkg w/ the 20" rims on mine - but the video was still fun to watch

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.
feel the same way jeep and all

That is pretty badass!!
But why must Chevy advertise the V6 model?! I'd like to see an LS3 pulling that kind of maneuvering.

I love watching the video - great fun!

Obviously GM isn't trying to prove anything with it

Besides, it isn't the snow --- it's the driver.

Don't see many Camaro's out in my neck of my woods. Its not the snow, but the road salt is why mine will not be out till that stuff is long gone.

After $3500 of damage due to 3" of snow and a 5mph turn yielding a left slide into the curb, i can guarantee those aren't the same tires I have on my car. I should have swapped to some all terrains then and saved my money!

Brought mine home on Thursday, just beautiful, took pics outside in the snow....before it got really dirty,... snow, sand, some chemical(white)stuff(anti-ice melt?). I had it built and bought it: to drive it...all the time. Dirt, snow, mud all comes off with a good wash and detail. Nothing wrong with keeping it in a garage(for those of you who do)....but I ENJOY mine....everyday!!

I brought my SS home almost 3 weeks ago when a snow storm hit that was supposed to miss us. I made a turn down a snow covered hill and saw two cars at the bottom, one in each ditch on the left and right side of the road. Let my foot off the gas, didn't brake, and it stared to slide to the right. Steered out of the slide and it started to slide toward the other side of the road. Decided to hit the brakes and let the anti-lock take over. Almost instantly the car sensed I wasn't going in the direction I was steering and straightened the car so I was pointing right down the road. Held the brakes until it was able to stop. Absolutely fricking awesome.

Right now my baby is at the dealership having the ground effects installed and the ding removed from some a-hole dump truck driver who turned on his salt spreader when he saw me driving up. Haters suck.

Summer tires in the snow? Sure does make the cost of winter tires seem a lot less after seeing your damage bill!

Seriously though, I take my car out on the days it is real bad. The Camry will get stuck easier with the all season tires. The Camaro can just bust right through it.
