By announcing the pricing and availability for the Camaro Synergy, Chevrolet finally puts to rest any doubt that it will go into production. The green Camaro, which was unveiled at SEMA last November, will arrive this February and will retail for $26,790.
However, the car will have a limited run. Based on the Camaro 1LT, the car features a 3.6l direct injection V6 engine, developing 304hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. The unit is mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission and returns up to 29 mpg on the highway.
The car's appearance by itself already sets it apart from all other cars. The body is green and has black racing stripes (also available in white and grey).
In addition, the American manufacturer will also provide a special body kit for the Camaro, including Ground effects kit, 21-inch wheels with a black center finish and polished rim, Cyber Grey Rally hood stripes, high wing rear spoiler and performance air intake. On its body kit, you can see pronounced rocker moldings, a rear diffuser-type styling piece and a front spoiler.
The Synergy Special Edition gives the Camaro an exterior that is quite something to look at. This particular color scheme is reflected in the interior as well. The door inserts and the instrument panel for example come in Synergy Green.
While the seats are in Jet Black, it is emphasized with Synergy Green stitching. The same stitching can also be seen at the center console, shift knob, and steering wheel. According to Scott Settlemire, the use of astounding colors is part of the reason why the first generation models of the Camaro became an icon.
The modern colors are what will define the Camaro for 2010, Settlemire adds. In addition to Synergy Green, Inferno Orange and Rallye Yellow are also available. Aside from the color scheme, the Special Edition also has other features like the Convenience and Connectivity Package.
Under this package, a USB port is available for those who want to use MP3 players. It also allows phone connectivity through Bluetooth. For models that come with automatic transmission, a remote vehicle start is available as well.
Camaro marketing manager John Fitzpatrick said that the Special Edition is available at under $27,000. In addition to the amazing style and the use of new and modern technologies, the engine is also something that should be considered with its 304 horsepower. This Special Edition package is truly for those who prefer to experience unique performance but at an affordable price, Fitzpatrick concludes.
