NEW CAMARO PRICED AT $13,999

 DETROIT, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The all-new Chevrolet Camaro -- featuring standard driver and passenger air bags and anti-lock brakes -- will start at $13,999, Chevrolet General Manager Jim Perkins announced.
 Speaking to reporters at the North American International Auto Show, Perkins said that the new fourth-generation Camaro "truly characterizes the Chevrolet mission" -- providing affordable value in each segment in which it competes.
 "Camaro's competitors don't even offer a passenger side air bag," Perkins said, "and none have anti-lock brakes as standard equipment -- charging up to $995 for that outstanding safety feature as an option."
 The standard Camaro comes with a new 3.4-liter V-6 engine developing 160 horsepower -- 20 horsepower more than last year, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
 The high-performance Z-28 Camaro, featuring a 275-horsepower version of the 5.7-liter LT1 V-8, comes with a new 6-speed manual transmission. Both the standard Camaro and the Z-28 are available with a 4-speed automatic transmission.
 The new Z-28 is priced at $16,799.
 The Camaro is the first Chevrolet to offer both driver and passenger side air bags. Camaro and its cousin the Pontiac Firebird are the first cars in General Motors to use the new environmentally friendly R-134a air conditioning refrigerant, replacing the CFC compound used up to now.
 GM's "Pass-Key" computerized anti-theft system continues to be standard on the Camaro.
 Perkins said that Chevrolet would offer a Camaro convertible in the 1994 model year.
 "The new Camaro has been redefined in such a way as to start quicker, stop quicker and handle superbly, while offering the latest in safety, environmental and anti-theft features," he said. "It even gets a little better fuel economy, despite its increased power. It also is being built to extremely stringent quality standards -- perhaps the most stringent in our history."
 Perkins also said that Chevrolet and GM had done "extensive work" with the insurance industry to help lower the insurance costs for the new car, including detailed sessions on repairability of the new design. He said many insurance companies will offer discounts for the dual air bags, ABS brakes and anti-theft device.
 The 1992 Camaros carried MSRPs of $12,075 and $16,055 for the V-6 and Z-28 models, respectively -- although those cars had neither dual air bags nor anti-lock brakes.
