, there are plenty to choose from. After 7 years without this iconic Chevy model, it came back in 2010. In the first year of its’ resurgence, only the base coupe model with a 304 horsepower V6 was offered, although that output is a bit higher today.

The previous generation of Camaros (the last one before discontinuation) focused more on performance and style than interior comfort, which is partially why it was discontinued. The 1993-2002 model line offered a base coupe and Z28. The former came with a V6 that produced 160 horsepower, and the Z28 was offered with a standard 275 horsepower, 5.7 liter V8. With either of these models, you could get a 5 or 6 speed standard, and also a 4 speed automatic.
In 1994 Chevy added a convertible Camaro to the list, and in 1995 they introduced a 200 horsepower engine for the base coupe model. In 1996 the Z28 received a boost to 285 horsepower and the 305 horsepower SS model was brought back. In 1998 all Camaros received a refresh, with a slight front end design change and a stronger, 305 horsepower V8 for the Z28 model. The SS horsepower output was boosted to 320 at this time.
Aside from small trim variances and an increase in power for the Z28 in 2001, nothing really was changed on any of the models from 1998-2002, the last year the Camaro was made. For the last year of production, a 35th year anniversary SS model was produced. This was distinguished by its’ white with red stripes paint job.
Despite the fact that the Camaro was quick, sporty and cheap, the interior never really caught up with the exterior. The bulky steering wheel style looked like something out of a New York city taxicab, and the plastic interior had a cheap feel to it. Also, the seats were somewhat unappealing and did not offer the lumbar support many people wanted. The only real redeeming qualities were the big gauges and good storage space (for a sports car). This is one of the reasons that the Camaro was discontinued, aside from the fact that people just got tired of the same styling year after year.
The customer reports have been generally positive for the new Camaros. The main points most people emphasis are the strong engine, cheap price, decent fuel economy, reliability, and the styling. The main issue today is the relatively tiny and the leaky T-tops. However, by and large the modern Camaros are a big upgrade over the previous generation.
