Taking a look at the 2016 model of Chevrolet Camaro SS, you can immediately summon the image of Transformers. This appearance by the latest model of Camaro SS impersonates the very category it embodies—a true muscle car. While outward appearance may dictate something on our imagination, does the core also exhibit true power and performance?
The ‘new’ styling features narrow slits on the side windows, short rear glass and an obese C-pillar. It is still debatable if these details actually add charm to the car itself but who knows? Car consumers are different individuals that have their own taste in styling.
Right inside, the seats of the SS are supportive and firm, giving off a fair amount of bolstering. The steering wheel can perfectly fit the palms of the man behind the wheel. The infotainment screen is nicely situated and expresses tough countenance; whereas the instrument cluster is composed of neatly-organized keys waiting to be utilized to their fullest potential. Everything inside shows improvement that may not be as premium as those of Mercedes Benz, but is certifiably pleasant.
Never mistake Camaro SS for a mere sedan for this one is the Numero Uno muscle car—that is, the number one performance car today. We can give the praises and thanks to the V8 engine but the 8-speed auto gearbox—this time—really does the wonder.
