2011 Chevrolet Camaro 2LS to deliver 30 mpg on the highway

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 10, 2011

Chevrolet said that its new 2011 Camaro 2LS model, which achieves an estimated 30 MPG highway, has an MSRP of $24,700 (including the six speed automatic transmission and DFC but excluding title, tax and other fees). With this fuel rating, the 2LS model joins the list of Chevrolet models that achieve 30 MPG Highway or better.

The Camaro 2LS only comes with the current six speed automatic transmission, and will include a rear spoiler, a 2.92 rear axle ratio and the current LS 18” Steel Wheels.

With the introduction of the 2LS, the current 1LS (model 1EE37) will exclusively be offered with the six speed manual transmission. This new 2LS model can now be ordered, starting with the Dealer Order Submission Cycle on February 24.

To order, the model number 1EN37 has to be chosen when submitting weekly orders. Just like the Camaro 1LT XM/Accessory Appearance Package, no special allocation is required for this new model. Orders can be submitted during the weekly order submission cycle for the remainder of the 2011 model run.

Its long hood and short deck have been pushed far to the edges of the muscular fender forms. It has a fast 67-degree rake windshield that boosts aerodynamic performance with 0.37 coefficient of drag (Cd) on V-6 models. Meanwhile, the V-8 powered SS version gets a bit sleeker 0.35 Cd.

Wheel arch openings get special attention by means of the design process. Whether the Chevrolet Camaro has wheels that measure 18-inches(standard), 19-inches(optional) or 20-inches(optional), the connection between the tire’s top and fender’s bottom are consistent on every model.

In addition, each model has the classic “V” sign in the nose together with a 2.5 inch or 63.5 mm power dome in the aluminium-made hood, which brings to mind the high performance Chevrolet Camaro models. SS models have a simulated air intake in the upper front fascia and a larger lower air intake. With regards to the top, designers got an idea from Corvette and sculpted two cockpits across the roof, giving a distinct Chevrolet presence to the vehicle.

From outside, the B-pillar is not visible, giving it a hardtop coupe appearance. The B-pillar’s function is to deliver structural rigidity to the car. To guarantee a top-quality manufacturing process, a single-piece body stamping gives a cleaner total side appearance without gaps, seams or plastic appliqués.

Fronting the rear quarter panel are “gills” that reveal Chevrolet Camaro styling. This car comes in ten exterior colors including Black, Silver Ice Metallic, Victory Red and Rally Yellow while Red Jewel Tintcoat is an optional color.

The color palette also consists of Aqua Blue Metallic, Inferno Orange Metallic, Cyber Ray Metallic, Imperial Blue and White Metallic. The LT and SS include an RS appearance package. It comes with a rear spoiler on LT, HID headlamps with halo rings, specific tail lamps plus 20-inch Midnight Silver wheels.
