While the brand-new Ford Mustang and high-powered Challenger Hellcat have been getting much of the press recently, it was the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 that just got named "Best Driver's Car" of the year by the experts at Motor Trend magazine. Of course, neither the Hellcat nor the Mustang are on sale yet, so they didn't qualify for the competition, but the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 did beat out cars including the Alfa Romeo 4C, BMW M4, Nissan GT-R Nismo and Porsche 911 Turbo S to achieve its title.
Along the way, it became the first winner from an American brand since the magazine began holding the contest, some seven years ago.
Said Mark Reuss, General Motors’ executive vice president for Global Product Development: “The mission for the new Z/28 was to create the most capable, best-handling Camaro in our history. As such, I can’t think of a better validation of that mission than for the Z/28 to be named Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car.”
