Current Chevy Cars - Buyers Guide
2021 Chevy Muscle & Sports Cars
Chevy's performance cars are few, but impressive. First up, lets take a look at the 2021 Chevy Camaro. The Camaro keeps its retro-yet-modern look, but has turned into a true sports car in terms of dynamics. Built on a stiff foundation shared with the Cadillac ATS and CTS, the Camaro is no longer just a straight line car, it has real road manners and when pushed it is confidence inspiring. A new LT1 model joins the already broad Camaro lineup for the 2021 model year. Combining elements of the LT and SS trim levels, the value-focused LT1 borrows the SS model's 6.2-liter V8. Both the SS and new LT1 trim levels get the 6.2-liter V8, good for 455 hp and 455 lb-ft, good enough for a 0-60 mph time of around 4.0 seconds. Topping the lineup is the ZL1 that's priced from $64,695. It gets the supercharged version of the V8, along with upgraded brakes, suspension, and cooling. A Magnetic Ride Control suspension is installed, along with Recaro bucket seats, a Performance Data Recorder for track use, and forged aluminum 20-inch wheels. Power is 650 hp and torque is a monster 650 lb-ft. A great modern muscle car, you cannot go wrong with the Camaro range.
The most exciting Chevy sold these days is easily the Corvette that was totally redesigned for the 2020 model year. For more than half a century, Zora Arkus-Duntov had dreamed of a mid-engine Corvette. On July 18, 2019, that dream officially became a reality. The official unveiling by General Motors happened from a specially customized hangar in Orange County, California. The 2020 Stingray, featured a new 6.2L Small Block V-8 LT2 engine producing 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque when equipped with performance exhaust. The results were astounding, a real revelation. We have the Corvette the ultimate compliment when we said it was a Ferrari 458 for $60,000. That pretty much sums it up, which is huge praise on a site like ours. 2020 Corvette production ceased and now we are into the 2021 Corvette production cycle. While much of the car is the same as the 2020 model year, there are some new colors, options, and packages for the car. Chevrolet has refined its list of packages and options that you can buy and this makes not only it easier for Chevy to build the cars, but for you to make your selection.
