Chevy has long been the most important name in American classic muscle cars. If you’re dreaming of buying a performance machine, you’ve likely considered two iconic Chevys: the Camaro and the Corvette. While both vehicles are highly ranked and offer unbelievable performance, style, and features, the Camaro is a standard sports car while the Corvette is considered a luxury model. Here’s what you need to know when comparing and contrasting the 2018 models of these mind-blowing sports cars.
The Camaro and Corvette both have a selection of roaring engines that put the muscle in muscle car. With the 2018 Camaro, drivers can opt for a turbo-four, V6, or V8. The base engine produces 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and comes paired with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. For more speed and faster acceleration, upgrade to the 3.6-liter V6 for a boost to 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque. The top-of-the-line Camaro engine is a formidable 6.2-liter V8 that provides 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque.
With the 2018 Corvette Stingray, a 6.2-liter V8 is the base engine, offering 455 horses (or 460 when you opt for a trim with performance exhaust). The upper trim, the Corvette Z06, has a specially tuned and supercharged version of the same V8 that pushes it to a blistering 650-horsepower rating.
The 2018 Chevy Camaro is generously appointed with standard tech features that include a six-speaker stereo with satellite radio, the MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, smartphone connectivity with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice activation, two USB ports, the safety-focused Teen Driver monitoring system, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. You’ll also enjoy the safety and comfort of a rearview camera and automatic climate control.
The 2018 Corvette ups the ante on luxury with leather upholstery and eight-way power adjustable seats, as well as an enlarged eight-inch touch screen, a premium nine-speaker Bose audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and proximity key with push-button start.
Both these cars have the sharp, agile handling you’d expect from a premier sports vehicle. Each is equipped with rear-wheel drive to take full advantage of the powerful powertrains. You’ll experience a smooth ride, precise steering, and strong brakes. Both the Corvette and Camaro can be upgraded with Magnetic Ride Control for improved suspension. The Corvette is specially tuned with steering and brake systems that make it racetrack-ready.
