Which Camaro does Edmunds recommend?

You can't go wrong here. A V6 Camaro with the 1LE package is one of the best performance deals on the market; even the four-cylinder is made fun by the 1LE package. But we say the Camaro is still at its best with a V8 rumbling under the hood. We do like the larger, 8-inch infotainment screen, so opt for at least the 1LT trim with the Technology package. It's a shame you have to choose between comfortable seats with a cushion that feels too high in the vehicle or amazing Recaro sport buckets that completely lack lumbar support (only available with the 1LE package). Honestly, if you're getting a manual-transmission car, go for the 1LE with the Recaros and invest in a small pillow.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro has been refreshed, with new fascias, front and rear lights, and some tweaks to trim-level equipment lists. But the only quality-of-life improvement is the upgrade to Chevy's newest and quickest infotainment system, the aptly named Chevrolet Infotainment 3. Nothing that makes the Camaro a tremendous performer and rewarding car to drive has changed, but nothing that makes it an unappealing choice for daily living has changed either.

Spend any time behind the wheel of a Camaro, and you'll quickly realize it's sharper and more purposeful than its American muscle-car rivals, especially when equipped with the 1LE package — an assortment of performance upgrades meant to improve handling, steering and braking. For 2019 models, Chevy has expanded the 1LE offering, making it available with all three engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0-liter. Unfortunately the downside of the refresh is what didn't change. The Camaro still has an essentially worthless back seat, minimal storage space, terrible outward visibility and some problematic ergonomic choices.

In many ways, the Camaro feels like the odd man out in the American muscle-car trinity. The Dodge Challenger has stayed true to form and is basically a rolling couch you can equip with a 797-horsepower V8, while the Ford Mustang has turned into a solid all-arounder with broad appeal for coupe buyers. But the Camaro has become a true sports car with all the ups and downs that entails, abandoning essentially all the traditional muscle-car traits except high-output V8 engines.

Trim levels & features

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro is available as a four-seat coupe or convertible, with 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, 1SS, 2SS and ZL1 trim levels. The LS and LT models come standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder; a V6 is available. The SS models have a V8, and the ZL1 has a supercharged V8. The 1, 2, 3 designations represent levels of equipment, but there are several optional packages and stand-alone items to help you customize your ideal Camaro.

The LS and LT models come standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (275 horsepower, 295 pound-foot of torque), but 1LT and 2LT cars can be equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 (335 hp, 284 lb-ft), while the V6 is standard on the 3LT. A six-speed manual transmission is standard across all trims, with an eight-speed automatic available as an optional extra.

Standard equipment on the base 1LS (coupe only) includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights, a limited-slip differential (with the manual transmission), a rearview camera, keyless ignition and entry, cruise control, eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat and four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat with cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and adjustable driving modes. Technology equipment includes Bluetooth, OnStar emergency communications, 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, and a six-speaker sound system.

Additional gear on the 1LT (the base model for the convertible) includes remote start, six-way power-adjustable passenger seat, satellite radio and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The 2LT adds dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Both the 1LT and the 2LT can be equipped with the Technology package, which adds a nine-speaker Bose audio system and an 8-inch MyLink touchscreen with more connectivity features.

The 3LT comes standard with the V6 and includes the contents of the Technology package with GPS navigation, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and illuminated vanity mirrors in the visors. If you add the Convenience and Lighting package to the 3LT, you'll get heated, auto-dimming side mirrors; rear parking sensors; a larger, color information display in the gauge cluster; driver-seat memory functions; a head-up display; a heated steering wheel; and wireless smartphone charging, along with some aesthetic upgrades. This package also adds active safety features such as blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert and forward collision warning. The 3LT also has unique interior appearance options.

The RS package includes 20-inch wheels, LED taillights, a special grille and a rear decklid spoiler; it is available for 1LT, 2LT and 3LT cars. Adding the RS package allows you to opt for the Heavy-Duty Cooling and Braking package, which includes an external oil cooler, a higher-capacity cooling system and four-piston front brakes.

The 1LE Track Performance package (coupe only) can be had with either the V6 or the 2.0-liter turbo. It adds the contents of the RS and Heavy-Duty Cooling and Braking packages, a limited-slip differential with cooler, sport-tuned suspension, 20-inch forged alloy wheels with wider summer tires, a mechanical limited-slip differential, a short-throw shifter, a track-cooling package, a dual-mode exhaust (with the V6 only), special aerodynamic spoilers and a satin black hood. Inside you'll find a suede-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel and suede-wrapped shifter. Recaro sport seats for the front can also be added to the 1LE package.

If you have the 3LT with the 1LE and Convenience and Lighting packages, you add a performance data and video recorder, which both records video and data to an SD card and offers more performance data displays on the infotainment screen. Forward collision warning is removed if you opt for the recorder.

The 1SS gets a 6.2-liter V8 (455 hp, 455 lb-ft), a six-speed manual transmission with rev-matching downshift (a 10-speed automatic is optional), 20-inch wheels, the four-piston Brembo brakes, performance suspension, a mechanical limited-slip differential, upgraded engine and oil cooling, a Track driving mode, a rear spoiler, xenon headlights and nicer gauges. Inside, you get an upgraded 8-inch infotainment system, improved driver information display and the six-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, but otherwise it has the 1LT's equipment.

The 2SS includes the 6.2-liter V8 and most of the features from the 3LT trim (navigation is an optional extra), along with unique interior accents and the Convenience and Lighting package. For 2019, the 2SS also receives a rear-camera mirror, which displays on the rearview mirror, improving rear visibility at the cost of true depth perception.

For the 1SS and 2SS, the SS 1LE Track Performance package adds six-piston Brembo brakes, Magnetic-Ride Control suspension with adaptive dampers, an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, different forged alloy wheels, upgraded performance tires, the Recaro sport seats and everything else included with the LT's 1LE package.

Finally, the Camaro ZL1 has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 (650 hp, 650 lb-ft), a six-speed manual transmission (a 10-speed automatic is optional) and launch control. All of the 2SS and SS 1LE extras, minus the cosmetic differences, are also included. The ZL1 1LE Extreme Track Performance package adds 19-inch forged aluminum wheels with wider tires, special race-oriented suspension dampers, a carbon-fiber hood and rear spoiler, and tinted taillights. With the ZL1 1LE package, a fixed rear seat is also available.

Other available extras include a sunroof and a performance exhaust (all V6- and V8-powered models), along with a nearly endless catalog of aesthetic customization options.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Chevrolet Corvette 1LT Coupe (3.6-L V6 | 6-speed manual | RWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2017, the current Camaro has received some revisions, including an upgraded infotainment system and alterations to trim-level features and packages. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Camaro, however.

Driving

4
Even with a smaller V6 engine, the Camaro is a surprisingly competent sports/muscle car. The performance gap between the V8 is shrinking, especially when it comes to handling. It's lively, inspires confidence and, above all, it's fun. And with a car like this, that's the whole point.

Acceleration

4
It's no surprise that the V8 is the engine of choice for power and acceleration, but this V6 is no slouch. We reached 60 mph in 5.3 seconds, which is quick and just 0.6 second behind the V8 car. The clutch is easy to use and the engine sounds great, which adds to the sensation of speed.

Braking

4
The upgraded brakes and sticky summer tires, which are part of the V6 1LE package, helped stopped the Camaro in 102 feet from 60 mph. Under heavy braking, the car remains composed and controllable, with little fade or softening of the pedal.

Steering

4
The steering effort is a bit heavy in Sport and Track modes, but it feels appropriate when driving hard. There's a fair amount of feedback transmitted through the wheel, which is absent in many cars. On the highway, it has good on-center feel that needs little minding to track straight.

Handling

5
With all of the suspension and tire upgrades, this Camaro is more lively and entertaining than you might expect from a V6 muscle car. It has a good nose-to-tail balance that instills confidence and is easy to recover if pushed past the limit.

Drivability

4
The intuitive clutch and shifter make the Camaro easy to drive whether you're stuck in traffic or blasting through canyon passes. The V6 is surprisingly flexible as well, so merging and passing are never an issue. We like a V8, but it isn't necessary.

Comfort

3
The Camaro is pleasantly comfortable, as far as muscle cars go. It offers an engaging and fun drive, yet it won't beat you up when you just want to drive from A to B. The placement of the climate vents is a bit inconvenient, but aside from that we'd have no problem spending hours behind the wheel.

Seat comfort

3
There's good padding for long-distance comfort, but not so much that you feel isolated from the sporty nature of the Camaro. The optional Recaro seat bolsters may be too narrow for wider passengers and the headrests have a weird tendency to contact other parts of your body, like your upper back.

Ride comfort

4
Despite the athletic handling ability and sport-tuned suspension, the Camaro's ride quality doesn't suffer. You still feel all of the nuances of the pavement surface below you, but it's never intrusive or busy.

Noise & vibration

3.5
Road noise is noticeable, but no more than in other cars in this class. Wind noise is limited to a little whistling near the mirrors at higher speeds. The V6 engine sounds great, encouraging you to keep revving it out, just the way a muscle car should.

Climate control

2
The climate control works well, but the two center air vents are poorly placed and blow cold air directly on your right hand, which is particularly bad with a manual transmission. The controls are otherwise creatively integrated, with the air vent rings used to adjust temperature settings.

Interior

2.5
This Camaro improves on its predecessor in many ways, but many elements still have us scratching our heads. It struggles with some usability issues that arise from the aggressive styling, particularly in regard to visibility. Chief rivals are far less compromised.

Ease of use

3.5
The button placement isn't the most intuitive, but with time the operations became more familiar. For the most part, the Camaro's layout is uncomplicated so you likely won't need to consult the owner’s manual to figure something out.

Getting in/getting out

2
Long coupe doors make getting in and out difficult in tight confines. The door entry is also a hindrance since it doesn't extend far enough ahead, which requires those with longer legs to awkwardly bend and twist in order to clear the footwell.

Driving position

4
There's a good amount of adjustability with the driver's seat, and the telescoping steering wheel has enough reach and tilt adjustment for taller drivers to find a comfortable position.

Roominess

2.5
The Camaro's cabin feels cozy because you sit so deep within it. We wouldn't call it spacious, but it isn't confining. A high beltline and the way it wraps around you enhances the sports car character but makes the car seem smaller. The rear seats are comically small and better suited for cargo.

Visibility

1
The chopped window look may look cool from the outside, but it significantly reduces outward visibility. The thick roof pillars keep you from seeing through tight left turns, and the high rear deck requires heavy reliance on the rearview camera. The gauge cluster gets in the way of forward visibility.

Quality

3
Compared to other muscle cars, the Camaro is about average. The interior materials include about as much hard plastic as its competitors, and the build quality is comparably strong.

Utility

2
Convenience is definitely not the Camaro's strong suit, and even though we don't expect much from muscle cars in this regard, this car falls well short of the mark set by the Mustang and the Challenger. Limitations on cargo space and personal item storage are unusually poor among current standards.

Small-item storage

2
There aren't many places to stash your personal items. The cupholders are moderately sized, and the center armrest bin and door pockets are small. Our suggestion: Pack light.

Cargo space

2
The Camaro's 9.1-cubic-foot trunk capacity is the smallest in the class (even smaller than the Mustang convertible's). Additional points are deducted for the high liftover height and tiny opening.

Child safety seat accommodation

2
The two sets of lower LATCH anchors in the creases of the back seat are easy enough to find. The cramped nature of the back seat means big, rear-facing child seats will be a tight squeeze. It's possible, but you'll probably want to do the install just once.

Technology

With the 2019 refresh, the Camaro gets a technology upgrade, with a new infotainment system and a handful of smaller updates. The odd screen angle remains an issue, though.

Audio & navigation

The infotainment system looks familiar, but responds more quickly, has more features, and the new screen material creates less glare. The odd angle of the screen in the car is still an odd compromise. The navigation display is simple — clean and easy to read.

Smartphone integration

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard across the range, along with other app connectivity features. OnStar is also standard and comes with a subscription-based 4G LTE connection and Wi-Fi hotspot. There's a connected app that gives you access to information about your car.

Driver aids

Driver aids such as rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors and a rearview camera display in the rearview mirror are only available on the highest trim levels. The regular rearview camera is standard, making parking less problematic.

Voice control

On the base infotainment system, you really have to rely on your connected phone's voice commands. The 8-inch systems have more voice capability, with enhanced voice recognition for the navigation system to help you manage nav controls.

Chevrolet Camaro vs. Ford Mustang

Rivals from a time when there weren't any home computers, let alone forums on which to fight to the death, the Ford Mustang is the Camaro's most obvious and direct competition. The Mustang is a roomier car, with a larger trunk and more usable back seat. It's generally easier to live with as well, with better visibility and a pleasant, usable interior. However, even with its own excellent V8, the Mustang just isn't as sharp to drive as the Camaro. It may be a better all-rounder, but it's down a bit on thrills.

Chevrolet Camaro vs. Dodge Challenger

The last bastion of the classic muscle car, the Challenger is a big beast of a coupe with a lounger-comfy interior. It's a far cry from the Camaro in terms of driving dynamics, but its biggest party trick is the availability of some truly bonkers engines. Some Challenger models make almost 800 horsepower from the factory and can run sub-11-second quarter miles. With that kind of straight-line prowess, who needs to turn?

Compare Chevrolet Camaro & Dodge Challenger features

Chevrolet Camaro vs. Dodge Charger

"I want a muscle car, but I need to be able to put my in-laws in the back seat." Well, you're in luck, because the Dodge Charger is a sedan built on the lines of the Challenger. It's big, it's comfy, and it has a range of overpowered V8 engines to choose from. It's also heavy, so it won't beat the Camaro around a track any time soon. Sadly, the Charger is only available with an automatic transmission.

2019 Chevrolet Camaro Turbo 1LE First Drive

A Muscle Car That's More Autocross Than Drag Strip

byWill Kaufman, Content Strategist and News Editor August 29th, 2018

Chevy's lightest, most balanced and least expensive Camaro is getting the track-rat treatment with the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Turbo 1LE. Can a four-cylinder muscle car be a competitor on an autocross course rather than a drag strip? We drove the new Turbo 1LE on track and on the road in hopes of finding an answer.

What Does 1LE Mean?

Camarophiles are already familiar with the 1LE package and its history, but the upshot is that it's designed to make the car more track-focused. You'll find this option available in various forms for all Camaro coupes, from the 650-horsepower Camaro ZL1 to this example, which comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder.

You get cooling upgrades and suspension bits — fatter anti-roll bars, retuned dampers, stiffer bushings, and a few other tweaks — along with heavy-duty brakes and performance pads. The wheels are 20 inches in diameter and come wrapped with 245 section-width summer tires up front and 275s on the rear.

On top of Normal and Sport drive settings, you get a Track mode that sharpens up steering and throttle response and loosens traction control. As with other 1LE-equipped models, there's a suite of available in-car tools, such as a head-up display with shift lights, launch control, and performance instrument readouts that show engine temperature and cornering forces. An available data logger records lap times and video of your session with a data overlay. Oh, and you get a matte-black hood.

The 1LE is designed to be driven off the dealer lot and onto the racetrack. To that end, Chevy honors the car's warranty should anything break on the track. No more having your buddies push your car out to the nearest public road and pretending you broke a half-shaft going over a pothole.

Muscle or Muscular?

This generation of Camaro has always been more of a sports car than a traditional muscle car, and this turbo 2.0-liter version drives the point home. Instead of the Mustang and Challenger, the Turbo 1LE looks to cars such as the Honda Civic Type R, Subaru WRX and Toyota GT86 for competition. It's meant for buyers who historically wouldn't have looked twice at a muscle car and want light, nimble cars that put handling and feel ahead of straight-line speed.

There's still a little muscle-car ethos happening. The Turbo 1LE is both more powerful and heavier than these competitors. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder makes 275 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque, while Chevy's published curb weight for it is 3,354 pounds. The four-cylinder is about 100 pounds lighter than the V6, reducing weight on the nose and bringing distribution to an almost perfect 50-50.

How Is It to Drive?

The Turbo 1LE doesn't feel heavy either on track or on the road. Everything about the car is sharp: Turn-in is immediate, and the car changes direction with no fuss, cornering flat no matter what you throw at it. On freeway drives, that sharpness can be a bit wearying. It's easy to start drifting off your line with even just a split second's inattention. Using the infotainment interface or even looking down at the display cluster can put you off-course if you're not careful. The head-up display really helps, showing all the relevant information and letting you keep your attention on the road.

The Turbo pulls strongly through the midrange, but power flattens as you approach redline. The lights in the head-up display take this into account, telling you to shift a little early to stay in the powerband. This sort of power delivery is common with modern turbo motors, and you'll see it in competitors in the segment. Power comes on early, with peak torque arriving by 3,000 rpm and staying mostly flat through the range. While this makes midrange power very accessible, it doesn't feel quite as lively as the numbers would lead you to think. The acceleration is so consistent that it seems almost undramatic.

A six-speed manual is the only transmission available with the 1LE. The shifter and clutch are direct and satisfying, with better feel than some competitors. Our only complaint is that there's no gate to stop you from going over to the position below reverse. Trying to go from third to second, we wound up hunting around until we got used to the shift pattern.

It's also a bit frustrating that you have to choose between a comfortable seat that's just a bit too high in the car or Recaros that offer great bolstering and a perfect height but totally lack lumbar support. It's a choice between a seat for the road or a seat for the track.

But these complaints are nitpicks in a car that ultimately does exactly what it says on the tin. The Turbo 1LE is engaging to drive and inspires confidence. The grip is incredible and lets you play with all the available power. Even better, it comes with a no-lift shift feature that allows you to change gears quickly with the gas pedal fully depressed. It's a lot of fun to use and, unlike with the more powerful ZL1, you can use it without worrying about getting yourself into trouble.

Is the 1LE a Good Deal?

The V6 engine delivers a more compelling experience, and it isn't much more expensive. However, the extra cylinders throw off weight distribution, and it's a little less approachable from an aftermarket modification standpoint. For the Turbo 1LE's target audience, there are some compelling reasons to stick with the four-banger.

With the high grip, rear-wheel-drive architecture and high power, it's a distinct experience from other affordable four-cylinder performance cars. We think the V6 1LE is one of the most underrated performance bargains on the market, but the Turbo 1LE makes a case for itself whether on back roads or on the track.

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro goes on sale this fall, with a new base LS trim that starts at $25,995 with destination and handling. The 1LE package is a $4,500 add-on and requires at least a 1LT trim level, bringing the price of entry to $30,995. If you want all the goodies, such as the performance data and video recorder and head-up display, you're looking at just over $40,000. Considering the power, performance technology, features and warranty, that's not a bad price compared to other sporty four-cylinder compact cars. We look forward to comparing them soon.


More about the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro has received a slight refresh, with a new front and rear fascia, a new infotainment system and some shuffling of trim-level packages and options. While the new look may be controversial to some, the addition of the excellent performance-oriented 1LE package to 2.0-liter turbo-equipped cars and the upgrade to the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system are definitely good news.

The base LS and LT models come with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and there's an available 3.6-liter V6. The SS Camaro shares the potent 6.2-liter, 455-horsepower V8 with the base Corvette, and the ultra-high-performance ZL1 has an even more muscular supercharged version of the 6.2 with a monstrous 650 hp. Four- and six-cylinder cars offer a choice of a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the SS and ZL1 models come with a six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic that was co-developed by Ford and General Motors.

As you'd imagine, EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings vary considerably, from a best of 25 mpg combined from the four-cylinder engine with the automatic transmission to a low of 15 mpg combined for the ZL1 with the manual transmission. But with 650 ponies at your disposal, are you really going to care about what it's costing to fill up your ZL1?

Chevrolet's updated infotainment system is worthwhile since it's compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. More electronic safety features, such as blind-spot monitoring, are offered. Trunk space, at just over 9 cubic feet, is barely adequate. On convertible Camaros, the top stows under a hard tonneau, and it can be raised or lowered at speeds up to 30 mph.

Handling on all 2019 Chevrolet Camaros is excellent. The SS model is available with the Magnetic Ride Control suspension, which helps improve both ride comfort and handling precision. Inside, the front seats are comfortable, but the same can't be said for the rear. Even kids will find it tight. The Camaro has a high waistline, resulting in relatively small side and rear windows, and subpar outward visibility.

So, yes, the Camaro isn't the most practical car available. But it is one of the most distinctive-looking and capable two-doors on the road today. If that sounds like your kind of car, let Edmunds help find the ideal 2019 Chevrolet Camaro for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Chevrolet Camaro?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
