Stylish, sporty, and affordable—the 2023 Chevy Camaro manages to combine several performance-oriented segments into one compact package that somehow won't break the bank. With the style and presence of a muscle car, a quality and prestigious interior, and under-the-hood performance that boasts amazing track capabilities, the 2023 Camaro is—without a doubt—one of the best-valued sports cars on the market today. It leaves little to be desired for those who want a quality, great-looking vehicle that performs as well on the road as it does on the track.
A couple of exciting new features are available for the 2023 model year Camaro, boasting some additional flash and panache for those who want a gorgeous car in exotic colors. For the exterior, you now have two additional colors to choose from: the premium Radiant Red Metallic and the all-new Sharkskin Metallic, which will give the Camaro a considerably distinct look on the road. You can also spruce up the exterior on the LT1 trim with the all-new 20-inch split five-spoke forged aluminum wheels, which are available in a black mystique.
The 2023 Chevy Camaro comes in eight different trim formats and two distinct exterior configurations—a hardtop coupe design or a convertible. The eight trims include the 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, LT1, 1SS, 2SS, and the high-performance ZL1. You can also get the 2023 Camaro in up to nine exterior and four interior color schemes; exterior colors include Summit White, Red Hot, Rapid Blue, Riverside Blue Metallic, Shadow Gray Metallic, Vivid Orange Metallic, Black, and the aforementioned all-new Sharkskin Metallic and Radiant Red Tintcoat.
The 2023 Chevy Camaro is all about performance, fine-tuned for some of the segment's best handling, traction, and acceleration. However, it's also designed to appeal to those who want a dependable daily driver that looks great and rides easy. This is all thanks to the diversified powertrain lineup, which consists of four different exquisitely engineered power plants that range from a turbocharged four-cylinder all the way up to a supercharged V8.
The entry-level 2.0L turbocharged inline four-cylinder makes 275 hp at 295 lb-ft of torque. It's available in either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic. The four-cylinder also nets you the best fuel economy out of the lineup; if you believe efficiency is essential in your roadster, you can expect to achieve an estimated 22 MPG in the city and up to 30 MPG on the highway, with the automatic transmission. If you need more power than the turbocharged four-cylinder can get you, the 3.6L V6 offers a bit more gusto as you move up the chain, providing 335 hp at 284 lb-ft of torque. Like the four-cylinder, the V6 comes with a six-speed manual transmission but is available with a ten-speed automatic.
The top-end offerings on the powertrain docket include two different iterations of a V8, including a 6.2L LT1 V8 that makes up to 455 hp at 455 lb-ft of torque; the other is the supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8, which makes a whopping 650 hp at 650 lb-ft of torque. Both of these V8 iterations are available in either six-speed manual or ten-speed automatic drivetrain configurations, with paddle shifters included.
Additionally, the 2023 Camaro is available in multiple performance packages and configurations, which include optional upgrades that would outfit your Camaro with Brembo red-painted brake calipers and available 19-inch black-painted forged-aluminum wheels on Goodyear Eagle SuperCar G:2 summer tires. The Camaro is also available with dual-mode performance exhaust, StabiliTrak for stability management, and Magnetic Ride Control, featuring an active responsive suspension that dynamically adjusts the ride according to the road surface and driving conditions. The Magnetic Ride Control also works well with the Drive Mode Selector, allowing you to conveniently choose between up to four modes, including Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport, and Track.
The composition of the 2023 Chevy Camaro is one of its most standout qualities. You can easily spot a Camaro from nearly a mile away, with its distinctive color scheme, elective accent stripes, and race-inspired exterior accessories. With more than 20 different wheel options, you can outfit the Camaro trim to look the way you feel best suits your personal tastes. The wheels range from 18-inch 5-split-spoke aluminum wheels to 20-inch 10-split-spoke forged aluminum wheels. The wheels are also available in several different colors, including Silver, Bright Silver, Carbon Flash, Black, Gray, Satin Graphite, and Dark Graphite.
You also have a lot of exterior flair adding to the Camaro's appeal, such as the ability of the convertible configuration to enjoy the open air. Plenty of aerodynamic features add to both the performance and look of the vehicle; from the sleek curves and aggressive fascia to the LED lighting array, there is a lot to appreciate when it comes to the outward design of the Camaro. The sports-themed hood with center vents create superb airflow, and optional packages further spruce the hood with a satin black hood wrap with available exposed-weave carbon-fiber hood inserts.
The Camaro can also take full advantage of its track capabilities with its side skirts and the availability of a unique front splitter that accentuates the large grille on the ZL1. Different rear wings are available for a different level of sports precision in how the Camaro presents. There is a rear lip spoiler for those who want a modest look on the Camaro, a pedestal spoiler for those who want additional aerodynamic improvements, and an exposed-weave carbon-fiber wing spoiler for the ultimate race car look.
High performance and design appeal can only take you so far with a sports car. Your vehicle must also be fun to drive and comfortable to ride in, otherwise it becomes a garage queen—good for looks and not much else. The 2023 Camaro, however, is much more than a pretty pony. Its interior comfort features and technological convenience make it one of the more appealing sports cars on the market, adding a considerable amount to the driving experience to make it as enjoyable as possible.
The inclusion of a black suede microfiber-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, along with the availability of Recaro race seats or leather-trimmed seating, means you have contour-fitting accouterments to help you hug the curves at high speeds comfortably and reliably. You have different interior options, too, to highlight how you feel the Camaro should look for those lucky enough to find a seat; these include a Jet Black interior, a Medium Ash Gray interior, an Adrenaline Red interior, and a Ceramic White interior.
All the basics that help make a car fun and convenient to drive are also present, such as cruise control, air conditioning with available dual-zone automatic climate control, seating for up to four people, and available eight-way power driver and six-way power front passenger seats. There are also available heated and ventilated seats, along with memory settings.
A bevy of infotainment features come standard on the Camaro, so you can enjoy the drive listening to your favorite media or accessing your favorite apps while on the go. Thanks to the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system, you have an available 8.0-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Alexa Built-In for navigation and voice commands, as well as wireless charging, USB charging ports, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
The Camaro also has many nifty features, such as a performance data tracker and video recorder, so you can manage and improve your track performance. And you can do all of this with the confidence of safety, thanks to the Chevy Safety Assist. You have active and passive security features to help aid you during your travels, including automatic emergency braking, an HD rear vision camera, forward collision alert, a heads-up display with vehicle health, parking assists, and blind-zone monitoring with cross-traffic alerts. The 2023 Camaro has everything you need to enjoy the ride comfortably and confidently while pushing the vehicle to its performance limits.
