But is it cheaper than a comparable Mustang?
Chevrolet kind of released pricing details for its new Camaro alongside an online configurator. We say “kind of” because the automaker only revealed pricing for the base 1LT and the first-tier 1SS. As a refresher, the LT class has either a 2.0-liter turbo-four or a 3.6-liter V6 on offer while the SS packs a potent 6.2-liter LT1 V8. The starting price for the LT is $26,995 and for the SS it’s $37,295. The online configurator packs a plethora of options but unfortunately it doesn’t tell you how much each one will cost.
The V6 and V8 coupes will hit dealer showrooms first, coming before the year 2015 is out. Convertibles and turbo-fours will arrive early 2016. We can’t wait for the inevitable comparison tests between the Mustang and Camaro that are sure to come. On pricing alone the base Camaro and the SS top their Ford counterparts by about $1,700 each. Now performance beats price in the mind of enthusiasts, but it’s always something to consider when there’s a difference like this. So, would you be willing to pay what Chevy’s asking or do you think the automaker is overcharging for its new Camaro?
