Changes for the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro:
This year, Chevy restyles the Camaro. A functional heat extractor vent is added for the Camaro SS, and a new Recaro performance seat option debuts. The big news, however, pertains to the return of the Camaro Z/28 as a track-tuned performance model equipped with the old Corvette Z06’s 7.0-liter V-8 engine.
The 2014 Chevy Camaro is offered in LS, LT, SS, Z/28, and ZL1 trim levels. The 2-door coupe is available in all five flavors, while the Convertible is limited to LT, SS, and ZL1 trim.
The Camaro LT adds a power driver’s seat and a Chevrolet MyLink color touchscreen radio to LS equipment, while the Camaro SS gains extra power. Each is available with leather, a premium audio system, a reversing camera, heated mirrors and seats, a heads-up display, and rear parking assist sensors.
The Z/28 is a stripped-down performance model – air conditioning is an option – but is loaded with track-ready hardware. The Camaro ZL1 is equipped with everything except for a navigation system, a power sunroof, and upgraded interior trim.
Engines and Transmissions:
Camaro LS and LT models have a 3.6-liter V-6 engine rated to make 323 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Select a Camaro SS with a manual transmission, and a 6.2-liter V-8 engine cranks 426 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque to the rear wheels. If you can’t operate a clutch pedal, you’ve gotta settle for 400 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of twist. However, with the automatic transmission, the engine gets Active Fuel Management technology in order to conserve fuel.
The new Camaro Z/28 has a 500-horsepower V-8 engine generating 470 lb.-ft. of torque. The old Corvette Z06 donates this 7.0-liter V-8, and a 6-speed manual gearbox is the only transmission choice.
For the most powerful Camaro, choose the mighty ZL1, which has a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 capable of producing 580 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. This less powerful version of the engine formerly offered in the Corvette ZR1 is equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic.
Fuel Economy Ratings:
The 2014 Camaro is rated to get between 15 mpg in the city for the ZL1 with the automatic transmission to 30 mpg on the highway for the LS and LT with the automatic transmission.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the Camaro Coupe a 5-star overall crash-test rating. The NHTSA has not tested the Camaro Convertible as this summary is written, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not performed crash tests on any Camaro.
Every 2014 Camaro is equipped with a free 6-month trial subscription to OnStar telematics, including Automatic Crash Response and Crisis Assist services. All except the Camaro LS have a Chevrolet MyLink infotainment and smartphone pairing system with a color touchscreen. Additional options include a heads-up display and a Rear Vision Package equipped with a reversing camera and rear parking assist sensors.
