"It is a heritage-inspired sports car for the 21st century, combining great looks and performance; advanced technology and surprising efficiency."

With a design that is very faithful to the original concept, the 2010 Camaro is a 21st century sports car that acknowledges its heritage.

A long front dash-to-axle and short rear deck give the Camaro classic proportions, while a sleek windshield profile, wheels pushed to the corners and muscular fender forms are modern elements that reinforce its advanced engineering a" and give the car a decidedly aggressive stance.

The high-performance Camaro SS is equipped with a powerful 6.2L V-8, with a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Manual transmission-equipped models are powered by a higher output 6.2L V8 pumping out an estimated at 422 (net) hp @ 5000 rpm and 553 (net) Nm @ 4500 rpm of torque.

Designed to protect occupants before, during and after a crash, the Camaro offers a comprehensive system of safety features a" starting with a robust body structure and integral safety cage around the passenger compartment. High-strength steel and ultra high-strength steel are used in key areas throughout the structure.

Indeed, the 2010 Camaro exemplifies GM's global development process.
