With nearly 50 years in the game, it’s amazing to think of how the Camaro has changed over its five generations; developing a cult-like following among die-hard enthusiasts. Chris Perry, V.P. Chevrolet U.S. Marketing takes us on a quick video tour compliments of the General Motors YouTube page. Perry discusses the original 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, current 2014 Chevrolet Camaro SS and the up and coming 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, which should be hitting dealer showrooms shortly in March 2013.
While the faces of each generation of Chevrolet Camaro have changed, Perry is quick to point out that even 46 years later, the heart and soul of the Camaro have remained the same. Though the first Chevrolet Camaro was introduced in 1967 with what is still the most popular engine ever produced – The Chevy 350ci small-block – nowadays, depending on trim levels, a 300hp V6 is offered as well as high-revving 426hp LS3. Better yet, the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will now be powered by the naturally-aspirated LS7 found in the most recent rendition of the Corvette Z06. Of course, we’ve touched on the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 before as well as a drifting Camaro version and the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, which debuted in Frankfurt, Germany in September.
Even though the faces may have changed, the Camaro has proved it is a leader in performance and technology. Of course, don’t take our word for it, we’ve got a quick video that outlines some of the original features found on the the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro and what is currently available on the most recent generation of Camaro.
