Chevrolet is set to commence production in the first quarter of 2009. Production is slated to start mid-February at GM's production site in Oshawa, Ontario in Canada. Dealership deliveries are expected to commence shortly thereafter. Featured on the Camaro are a number of performance, appearance and convenience accessories like 21-inch wheels and tires; ground effects and stripe kits; and even a classic-styled Hurst shifter.

Customers can order these accessories and have them installed at their dealership. There will be cases in which the cost of the accessories and their installation can be packaged into the monthly payments of the Camaro. The new Camaro is underpinned by GM's new, global rear-wheel-drive architecture and can be availed in V-6-powered LS and LT models, as well as in the V-8-powered SS. Six speed gearboxes are installed to transmit power from engine to the wheels.

The Camaro is injected with a slew of advanced technologies, like engines with direct injection and Active Fuel Management for exhilarating performance as well as good fuel economy. The MY2010 Camaro features sleek styling with heritage cues, and can be availed in any of the 10 exterior colors. It also features four-wheel independent suspension system, including a 4.5-link rear suspension, as well as four-wheel disc brake systems and four-piston Brembo calipers on SS models.

All models come standard with StabiliTrak stability control system and traction control as well as six air bags, including head curtain side-impact air bags and front seat-mounted thorax side air bags. Customers can also choose from a set of 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels. Customers could also avail of the RS appearance package (for LT and SS), which includes HID headlamps with integrated halo rings, spoiler, specific taillamps and 20-inch wheels.

Other features include Bluetooth phone connectivity, USB connectivity, remote vehicle starting system, OnStar and XM Satellite Radio. The Camaro LS and LT models are powered by a 3.6L engine -- with variable valve timing for optimized performance and fuel economy – that could develop around 300 hp (224 kW) and 273 lb.-ft. of torque (370 Nm). It is mated to a six-speed manual transmission as standard. Customers could also opt for a Hydra-Matic 6L50 electronically controlled six-speed automatic, with TAPshift control.

Both the LS and LT models return an estimated 27 mpg in highway driving. On the other hand, the Camaro SS is powered by a 6.2L V-8 engine, which could be mated to either a six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed automatic transmission.

Models fitted with manual transmission (TR6060 six-speed transmission) are powered by the LS3 engine, which returns 422 hp (315 kW) of output and 408 lb.-ft. of torque (553 Nm). Models with automatic gearbox (Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed transmission) are powered by the LS3-based L99 V-8 engine that chugs out 400 hp (299 kW) of output and 395 lb.-ft. of torque (535 Nm).

The Hydra-Matic 6L80 features GM's fuel-saving Active Fuel Management system that helps return an estimated 23 mpg on the highway. Ed Peper, GM North America vice president for Chevrolet, remarked that the wait for the Camaro is almost over, and sports car enthusiasts now have a reason to rejoice.

Before hitting the road, the new Camaro can be seen on TV this fall as on NBC's new drama, "My Own Worst Enemy," starring Christian Slater as a man with two personalities. The show will also feature the new Chevrolet Traverse crossover. “My Own Worst Enemy” premiers Oct. 13, the same day as when Chevrolet starts to receive ordering for the Camaro.
