2011 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 6M)
This vehicle is all that it was cracked up to be. Wonderful exterior styling and lines, a well crafted interior that pays nice homage to the early Camaros and FREAKISHLY strong power to accelerate. 6-spd manual transmission mates well with the engine and is fun to drive. Handling is tight and responsive. Fuel economy is as promised (about 24 mpg hwy). If driven modestly in town around 19/20 mpg. One nice addition for the 2011 - and one which I waited for - is the HUD. Nicely done and it subtly reminds you of your speed and RPM without having to take eyes off road. Gauges, leather and interior lighting are a nice mix of retro and European touches. Well done Chevy! Happy!
Heads up display, freakishly strong power, sexy exterior styling (unanimously agreed upon by my friends - even the Mustang guys), visually pleasing interior lighting and gauges. Subtle SS badging doesn't scream to the world what you are packing under the hood. Exotic car at domestic prices!
Push-button ignition would really push the interior design over the top. As is, the key ignition is the clumsiest arrangement on an other-wise beautiful interior. Also add "blind spot" mirrors. The rear quarter blind spots are as bad as advertised and the mirrors would help remediate this.
