Chevy Camaro Earns Spot on KBB’s Top 10 for Coolest Cars
The Chevrolet Camaro doesn’t need validation that it’s cool; it’s always been cool, but it is always nice to get a compliment, right? The latest praise for the cool Camaro comes from Kelley Blue Book, which included the muscle car in its list of the “10 Coolest Cars Under $30,000 for 2021.”
Available Now: 2021 Chevrolet Camaro
“The Chevy Camaro is a muscle-car classic that has been on the scene for nearly 55 years,” said KBB writer Allyson Harwood. “Its styling is a modern take on the first-generation model, but the 2021 Camaro’s performance at the track goes above and far beyond the original’s capabilities.”
The 2021 Camaro offers a choice of four powertrains:
- The 2.0-liter Turbo generates 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard on LS and LT trims.
- The 3.6-liter V6 ups the power ratings to 335 horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque. This engine is available as an upgrade on the LT trim.
- The 6.2-liter LT1 V8 boasts 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard on LT1 and SS trims.
- Supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 puts out 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard on the ZL1 trim.
With the standard 2.0-liter engine, Harwood notes you will stay way under the $30,000 limit yet still earn a thrilling performance.
“If you wanted to just squeak over that price — to $30,995, before factoring in Fair Purchase Price and incentives — you can get the Turbo 1LE package, with an upgraded sport suspension, heavy-duty brakes, and track mode,” adds Harwood.
The 2021 Camaro has a starting MSRP of $25,000.
