  • A forepart rider spying scheme that senses children and small-stature adults, and suppresses air bag deployment when reserve.
  • In both doors, an interlace pin is utilised to foreclose usurpation into the rider compartment and adds rigourousness to the threshold construction by piquant with a clevis bracket set into the cradle board.


    When it comes to execution, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro delivers in unexpected slipway. An forward-looking 3.6L direct-injected V-6 with varying valve timing is banner on LS and LT models. It offers ability and efficiency, with 304 h.p. (227 kW) and EPA-rated 29 mpg in highway impulsive.

    The performance-oriented Chevrolet Camaro SS offers a couple of 6.2L V-8s, including one with Alive Fire Direction that helps better fire thriftiness by closing devour quadruplet cylinders during sealed light-load drive weather. That example delivers 25 mpg in EPA-rated highway fire thriftiness.

    So, the surprising fire saving of the new Chevrolet Camaro enhances the drive receive. LS and LT models are EPA-rated at 18 mpg in the metropolis and 29 on the highway with an machinelike transmittance; and 17 metropolis and 29 highway with the manual transmittance. Chevrolet Camaro SS with an reflexive is rated at 16 metropolis and 25 highway; and 16 metropolis/24 highway with the manual transmittance. Notably, none of Chevrolet Camaro’s models is content to federal gas gulper taxes.

    For equivalence, the more expensive 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 offers corresponding h.p. to the Chevrolet Camaro SS with the manual transmitting – 425 (317 kW) vs. 426 (318 kW) – and is EPA-rated at 14 metropolis and 22 highway. When automatic-equipped models are compared, the Chevrolet Camaro wins again, with the Contender SRT8 rated at 13 metropolis and 19 highway.

    All of Chevrolet Camaro’s engines transfer their might to a reactive form that features free-lance strawman and bottom suspensions, prominent, four-wheel-disc bracken systems with banner ABS and GM’s StabiliTrak electronic constancy command arrangement.

    3.6L direct injection V-6

    Chevrolet Camaro’s 3.6L organise injectant (DI) V-6 delivers more powerfulness done increased efficiency, piece maintaining fire saving and heavy emissions – including a 25-percent dip in cold-start hydrocarbon emissions. Organize shot optimizes fire deliverance to the burning bedroom by introducing fire finisher to the burning bedchamber. The fire injectors are situated below the ingestion ports and fire is injected forthwith into the cylinder. The resolution is amend efficiency in the burning operation star to increased fire efficiency at contribution and full-of-the-moon accelerator.

    The 3.6L DI locomotive produces 304 hp (227 kW) at 5,900 rpm and 273 lb.-ft. of torsion (370 Nm) at 5,200 rpm. Its 60-degree block and cylinder heads are form aluminium to aid dilute deal. A bad blade crankshaft provides optimum lastingness in the bum end. The cylinder heads admit iv valves per cylinder, with a threefold smash camshaft innovation incorporating endlessly varying cam phasing.

    A wax three-fold exhaust, with twofold catalytic converters, helps dilute backbone imperativeness for optimal ability. It likewise helps the locomotive scope operational temperature faster to avail burn cold-start emissions. And disdain a densification proportion of 11.3:1, the 3.6L DI locomotive is intentional to run on even gas.

    Chevrolet Camaro SS’s 6.2L powertrains

    Two 6.2L V-8 engines are offered in the Chevrolet Camaro SS, including the new L99 on automatic-equipped vehicles and the LS3 on manual-equipped models. Both engines are derived from the LS3 that debuted on the 2008 Chevrolet Corvette.

    The 90-degree V-8 includes an aluminum block (with cast iron cylinder liners) and aluminum cylinder heads. The bottom end of the engine includes a new structural cast aluminum oil pan, with an oil capacity of 8.9 quarts (8.5 liters), while the two-valve cylinder head design is based on race-proven airflow dynamics. The intake valves measure 2.16 inches (55 mm) and exhaust valves are 1.60 inches (40.5 mm) in diameter.

    The 6.2L engines also use a roller lifter-style camshaft with 5-percent greater intake-side valve lift than the Corvette’s LS3. It manages airflow that is channeled through an acoustically tuned intake manifold with a composite design that reduces runner-to-runner variation. The throttle bore diameter is 90 mm.

    Horsepower for the L99 is 400 (298 kW) at 5,900 rpm and torque is 410 lb.-ft. (556 Nm) at 4,300 rpm. The LS3 develops 426 horsepower (318 kW) at 5,900 rpm and 420 lb.-ft. (569 Nm) at 4,600 rpm (all numbers are SAE certified). Output on the L99 is lower than the LS3 because of a slighter lower compression ratio (10.4:1 vs. 10.7:1) and design features of the Active Fuel Management System. The L99 is paired exclusively with an automatic transmission.

    As with the 3.6L models, the SS models employ a full dual exhaust system, with two catalytic converters to reduce back pressure.


    All Chevrolet Camaro models can be equipped with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The availability of a six-speed automatic transmission is a first for Chevrolet Camaro.

    Standard with the 3.6L engine is the Aisin AY6 six-speed manual. It features lower shift effort and shorter throws for easier shifting and “fun-to-drive” characteristics. A hydraulic clutch and self-adjusting mechanism eliminates the need for adjustments throughout the lifespan of the transmission.

    The Hydra-Matic 6L50 six-speed automatic is optional with 3.6L-equipped models. It has an aggressive 4.07:1 first gear ratio that delivers strong launches, but also provides tall overdrive ratios that decrease engine rpm and provide better fuel efficiency. The 6L50 also includes driver shift control, with the driver taking control via paddle shifts located on the steering wheel after selecting the “M” mode on the console-mounted shifter.

    Performance Algorithm Shifting (PAS) is included with the 6L50. It lets the electronic transmission controller override the automatic gear selection during high lateral acceleration maneuvers.

    On SS models, the new Tremec TR 6060 six-speed manual is paired with the LS3. It is designed to handle the high torque characteristics of the engine, while providing shorter throws, smoother gear synchronization and greater overall shift feel with little or no vibration. Its specs include a solid 290 mm flywheel and single-plate clutch. The final drive ratio for LS3 vehicles is 3.45:1.

    The highest-capacity automatic ever in a GM passenger car, the Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic, is matched with the L99 engine. Like the 6L50 transmission, it features driver shift control and PAS. The final drive ratio on all automatic-equipped Chevrolet Camaro models is 3.27:1.

    Ride & Handling

    Fully independent front and rear suspensions are the underpinnings of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. The standard independent rear suspension is a first for Chevrolet Camaro and is designed to compete with the best in the world. It’s a 4.5-link system that includes a unique, L-shaped upper control arm that attaches to the knuckle at one end and incorporates a ride bushing in the rear.

    Based on GM’s global rear-drive passenger car architecture, the Chevrolet Camaro sits on a 112.3-inch (2,852 mm) wheelbase, with an overall length of 190.4 inches (4,836 mm). The front track is a wide 63.7 inches (1,618 mm) for all models, while the rear track on LS and LT models is 64.1 inches (1,628 mm) and 63.7 inches (1,618 mm) on SS models.

    Two suspension packages are offered: FE2 sport on V-6 models and FE3 performance with the V-8. The front suspension has a dual ball strut system, with a direct-acting stabilizer bar that measures 22.2 x 4 mm on FE2 and 23 x 4.2 mm on FE3. Hollow bars are used for mass savings. The front spring rates for FE2 models are 25 Nm, with wheel travel at 96 mm. FE3 models include a stiffer, 27 Nm spring rate, with wheel travel reduced at 84 mm.

    Rear suspension features include high lateral stiffness for handling via three lateral ball joints per side. A sub-frame at the rear is double-isolated to minimize vehicle body motions and dampen road imperfections. The FE2 with a manual transmission includes a spring rate of 53 Nm, with wheel travel at 115 mm, and employs a limited-slip differential. The FE3 rear axle uses a limited slip differential on both manual- and automatic-equipped models; and the rear spring rate is increased to 66 Nm and wheel travel is reduced to 100 mm. Coil-over shock absorbers are used in the rear with a decoupled, hollow stabilizer bar. FE2 includes a 21.7 x 3 mm rear bar, while the FE3’s large bar measures 23 x 3 mm.

    The axle halfshafts on all V-8 models and manual transmission-equipped V-6 models are 30 mm in diameter on the left side and 40 mm on the right side. This design feature helps reduce the oscillation of torque from side to side and reduces axle hop.


    Front brakes for LS and LT models include single-piston calipers with 321 mm x 30 mm rotors. For long life, performance and consistent feel, organic, non-asbestos compounds are used with FE2 brakes. At the rear are vented rear discs measuring 315 mm x 30 mm, with a single-piston aluminum caliper.

    The SS front brake package includes Brembo 355 mm x 32 mm vented rotors with four-piston aluminum calipers. Semi-metallic brake linings are used at all four corners on FE3 models for superior fade resistance and pedal feel. The rear brakes are vented Brembos measuring 365 mm x 28 mm, with aluminum four-piston calipers.

    The 2010 Camaro’s precise rack-and-pinion steering gives great driver feedback and cornering confidence. The design includes the rack mounted forward of the front axle centerline that enhances handling and provides a stiffer system, while maintaining a degree of lateral force that helps vehicle stability during turn-in. It also benefits noise and vibration characteristics. The steering ratio is 16.1:1 on all models, with 2.5 turns lock-to-lock. The turning circle diameter for all wheel-and-tire combinations is 37.7 feet (11.5 meters).

    Chassis control systems

    All Chevrolet Camaro models include a four-channel StabiliTrak electronic stability control system that incorporates anti-lock braking, traction control and an active braking system to control wheel slip, optimize traction and enhance stability in wet, snow-covered or icy roads.

    All SS models have a competitive/sport mode that optimizes the electronic stability control system for competitive driving and track conditions. It provides a less governed level of stability control for expert driving on race tracks. The stability control system engages only in severe oversteer or extreme acceleration in this mode.

    New for Chevrolet Camaro SS models with a manual transmission is Performance Launch Control that is enabled in the competitive mode. It is designed to control wheel slip to an optimal level, allowing hard accelerations at launch to achieve maximum grip and vehicle acceleration.

    Hydraulic brake assist also is standard on all models. The system activates during emergency braking by detecting the speed and force the driver applies to the brakes. Under certain conditions, the hydraulic brake assist may activate the ABS more quickly and easily than vehicles without the feature.

    Wheels and tires

    Standard on LS models are P245/55R18 all season BFGoodrich touring tires mounted on 18 x 7.5-inch steel wheels. Optional wheels include 18 x 7.5-inch and 19 x 8-inch aluminum alloy wheels. On the optional 19-inch wheel, P245/50R19 Pirelli Pzero Nero M+S may be ordered.

    For SS models, 20-inch wheels are standard, with tire sizes of 245/45R20 up front and 275/40R20 at the rear. SS models are equipped with Pirelli Pzero summer-only, Z-rated tires. Twenty-one-inch wheels and tires are available as accessories through Chevrolet dealerships.
