The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro is back in the egmCarTech garage – however, unlike the V8 Camaro SS we previously tested, this Camaro carries a 304-hp 3.6L V6 mated to the Aisin Warner AY6 6-speed manual transmission.
First Impressions: It’s yellow like Bumblebee but it doesn’t have the black stripes nor does it have the Transformers package. While we would have loved to test the V6 Camaro mated to a Hydra-Matic 6L50 and see how it manages to hold up to its EPA rated fuel-economy of 18/29 mpg (city/highway) – as enthusiasts, we never give up a chance to get behind a manual transmission and test the car’s performance to its limits. When compared to its rival the base V6 2010 Ford Mustang, the V6 2010 Chevrolet Camaro really sticks out. While the V6 2010 Mustang only makes 210-hp, the V6 Camaro makes a respectable 304-hp with a maximum torque of 273 lb-ft. Opt for the manual transmission and the performance of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro LS and LT model is sure to put a smile on your face.
Our test 2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2LT carries a total vehicle price of $29,270. Base pricing starts at $26,875 and the RS Package (20-inch wheels, HID headlamps with a halo ring, RS tail lamps and a rear-spoiler) adds $1,450 to the final price.
Ask us all the questions you want about the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2LT while we’re test-driving it this week and we’ll be sure to answer as many as we can.
