Chevrolet's sporty Camaro was introduced in September 1966, as a 1967 model. It was available in either coupe or convertible body styles.

Base-model competition came from the Ford Mustang, Honda Prelude, Nissan 240SX, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Toyota Celica and Acura Integra. The powerful Z28 was a muscle car aimed at the Mustang GT, the Toyota Celica GTS and Supra, the Mitsubishi 3000GT and the Nissan 300ZX.

Year-to-year changes[edit | edit source]

1991[edit | edit source]

The third-generation Chevrolet Camaro consisted of a 2-door convertible and a 2-door coupe, in RS and Z28 models, for a total of four trim levels.

1993[edit | edit source]

The fourth-generation Camaro was introduced only as a 2-door coupe for this model year.

Power for the base Camaro coupe came from a 160-horsepower 3.4-liter V6, which was backed by a 5-speed manual transmission. The Z28 came with only one engine, a 275-horsepower version of the Corvette's 5.7-liter LT1 V8. This was coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission. Both wereordered with an improved version of the 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission.

1994[edit | edit source]

The fourth-generation Camaro convertible joined the coupe.

1995[edit | edit source]

In 1995, the Camaro carried on with very few changes. Available either as a mild-mannered V6-powered base model or the rip-snorting V8-powered Z28, the Camaro was outfitted for a sporty appearance or as a true high-performance sports car.

The Camaro and Z28 offered a long list of standard equipment, including dual airbags and antilock brakes. All convertibles had a power top with a heated glass rear window as standard equipment.

Options included a specific handling package for base and Z28 models and 245/50ZR16 tires on alloy wheels for the Z28 only. This package also included a 150-mph speedometer.

Also available for the Z28 was the new ASR (Acceleration Slip Regulation) traction-control system, which eliminated wheelspin.
