Or if you hate the idea.
Before implementing a new idea for one of its cars, automakers will gauge public reaction. In the case of the Chevy Camaro, we wish someone at GM would have asked customers before releasing the 2019 facelift because it is far uglier than the model it replaces.
The Camaro is an extremely important car for Chevrolet, one that has an extremely long history. Therefore it is important to get feedback before messing around too much with the formula. Clearly, Chevy wants to know what its customers think of their future Camaro plans because a user on Camaro6 forums has posted an interesting customer survey regarding a hybrid Camaro.
In a screenshot of the survey, we can see that Chevy asked customers how likely they would be to purchase a Camaro with various engine options. These included the 2.7-liter four-cylinder turbo from the new Silverado producing 310 horsepower, 25 mpg on the combined cycle, and 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds; and a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder hybrid with 365 hp, 30 mpg on the combined cycle, and 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds (for $4,000 more).
The survey also asked customers if they'd simply prefer the Camaro with the typical 6.2-liter V8 with 455 hp, 20-mpg combined, and 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds (for $4,000 more than the 2.7-liter turbo) or a 6.2-liter V8 hybrid with 545 hp, 24-mpg combined, and 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds (for $8,000 more than the 2.7-liter turbo).
If none of these options seemed appealing, which seems unlikely, the respondents could also click none of the above.
Clearly, GM wants to know whether Camaro customers would be willing to spend more on a hybrid Camaro if it meant getting increased power and fuel economy.
Ford has been hinting at building a hybrid Mustang and if that happened, we wouldn't be surprised if Chevy followed suit with a hybrid Camaro. Like Chevy, we want to know what you think. Does a hybrid Camaro sound cool, or would you rather just have a V8?
