The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro ranks 2 out of 4 Muscle Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of 20 published reviews and test drives of the Chevrolet Camaro, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
The Big Three are at war, battling for the coveted title of baddest muscle car on the block. As the competition heats up, General Motors is showing no signs of backing down. For 2011, Chevrolet ups the ante with performance figures that it believes are more reflective of the Camaro’s performance abilities and, even better, a gorgeous convertible body style. The Camaro was named Motor Trend’s “Car of the Year” in 2010.
Last year, the new Camaro was everywhere, from the silver screen to Wal-Mart parking lots, reasserting its rightful place in American pop culture. While its cutting-edge styling and nostalgic appeal won an immediate fan base, its raw muscle and performance abilities attracted legions more. “After years of anticipation, Chevy’s new Camaro not only lives up to the hype but also redefines what a muscle car can be,” writes Edmunds.
In addition to its drool-worthy exterior design, the 2011 Camaro features a powerful 312 horsepower V6 engine and highly competitive straight line performance. And with an EPA-estimated fuel economy as high as 18/29 mpg, it’s even good on gas. It isn’t, however, perfect. Like many muscle cars, the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro’s cabin is marred by subpar materials and limited visibility. What’s more, many of its rivals offer more backseat room. Still, taken as a whole, reviewers are happy with the return of the much-loved Camaro.
Other Muscle Cars to Consider
While some competitors’ base trims provide muscle-car looks without muscle-car power, the V6 Camaro has both. In terms of power and performance, it’s one of the best V6 muscle cars on the market.
Still, interested shoppers shouldn’t sign any paperwork until they’ve test driven the 2011 Ford Mustang. Recently redesigned, this nostalgic pony packs 305 horsepower, is reportedly more agile than the Camaro and can even net up to 31 mpg. For V8 power, test drive the Dodge Challenger R/T and Charger R/T, which feature HEMI engines that produce 372 horsepower and 368 horsepower, respectively.
