It starts when you get that first glance of the unmistakable design. Those deep-set eyes, the rear shoulders sculpted from an impressive one-piece, body side panel. Oh, there’s an immediate chemistry alright. But it’s on that first real driving date that you’ll really be hooked — because Camaro Coupe’s beauty isn’t only skin deep.
It’s the 323-horsepower V6. Or the massive boost behind the 426-horsepower V8 available on SS, including the SS with the track-ready 1LE Performance Package. It’s the excitement of the precision handling that comes with 4-wheel independent suspension and world class braking you can’t get on a Mustang. The smart and accessible technology you’ll find inside. It won’t take you long to realize that this one is different from all the other cars you’ve driven before.
By the time you uncover the accessible price, the EPA-estimated 30 MPG highway for 2LS, the available 7-inch diagonal touch-screen and the available Head-Up Display projected on your windshield, there’ll be no turning back. This really was meant to be.
Not only does the Camaro Coupe’s LFX V6 boast 323 horses that will propel you from 0 – 60 in 6.4 seconds. But it also offers impressive fuel efficiency: 30 MPG highway† for the 6-speed automatic transmission 2LS.
The dual overhead cam engine gives you heart-racing performance. Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing combine to ensure you’ll never waste a drop of gas. This is one high-tech, low-down, powerful engine. If unbridled power is what you’re after, the Camaro aluminum SS 6.2L V8 engine offers 426 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque befitting its aggressive reputation.
It’s so fun to drive, you might just volunteer to pick up the dry cleaning. The independent rear suspension and variable-ratio power steering give you the kind of handling you’ve only dreamt about. Its chassis is tuned to stick in turns and handle transitional situations like a champion. A 52/48 front-to-rear weight ratio gives you the kind of balance you’d expect from the world’s best sports cars.
New in 2013 for manual transmission models is Hill Start Assist that will help keep your Camaro from rolling backwards when you’re taking off from an inclined position.
The exhilarating Camaro experience starts — literally — where the rubber meets the road. New 20” wheels available on LT and standard on SS, make a statement that’s impossible to ignore. Pair them with Pirelli® PZero®† ultra high performance tires† for a true experience of style and power.
The first time you strap yourself into Camaro SS, make a mental note of where the hood release is. You’ll thank yourself later.
Because with this car you don’t just prop the hood to add windshield washer fluid. It’s packing an engine you’ll want to stand back and admire. And maybe let your friends sneak a peek at. If they’re lucky.
The 6.2L V8, paired with the standard 6-speed transmission, offers 426 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. Or opt for the high-tech combination of speed and efficiency with the 6-speed automatic transmission with Active Fuel Management, which offers 24 MPG highway† and delivers 400 horsepower.
Launch control on the manual transmission SS helps control wheel spin for faster 060 sprints. TAPshift® manual controls on the automatic transmission SS give you command over the gear selection for an exhilarating sports car experience, while keeping the transitions smooth.
The performance-tuned suspension with finely tuned stabilizer dampers provides an outstanding ride, balanced transitions, and excellent steering and handling. Pair it with the standard 20” wheels with Pirelli®† PZero® ultra high performance tires† and Brembo® brakes for superior performance and control.
You’ll notice the electrically assisted power steering that is tuned for a specific feel and performance characteristics. It replaces traditional hydraulic power steering on Camaro SS.
As for that sound they hear, that’s the ZL1-inspired, available dual-mode exhaust on Camaro SS. It enables peak performance at high engine speeds, and has been engineered to create an aggressive sound at idle without sounding overwhelming when cruising at a steady speed—the drawback of some aftermarket performance exhausts.
For more than two decades, both owners and enthusiasts have coveted the competition-ready third- and fourth-generation Camaro 1LE Performance Package. Now the 1LE is back, combining the white-knuckle performance elements of ZL1 and SS with a decidedly aggressive attitude of its own. Best of all, this 1LE is here to stay.
Once you’re strapped in and ready for takeoff, you’ll notice that the Camaro Coupe interior is designed to make your rule of the road as comfortable and instinctive as possible. The comfort begins with the seats. Deep bolstered and ready for even the longest road trips, the LT, SS and ZL1 all come with standard six-way power driver and passenger seats.
But it’s the driver who really controls the Camaro Coupe, and nothing is more vital to that control than the steering wheel. Chevrolet engineers have optimized it to give you top-level response and control with a luxurious feel. The modern design has pronounced thumb grips above the central spokes for better grasp and feel. Control audio functions with buttons right on the steering wheel, plus take advantage of the standard Bluetooth® wireless technology† for select phones that helps keep you connected while keeping your eyes on the road. You’ll also appreciate a new ZL1-inspired manual transmission shifter and a newly designed “frameless” inside rearview mirror that comes in handy to see all the vehicles you’ve left behind.
The Driver Information Center has been designed to let you monitor your vehicle’s vital stats at a glance so you can keep your eyes where they belong — on the road.
From the intuitive instrument panel and revised climate control graphics to a four-pack of auxiliary gauges — standard on 2LT and 2SS — that includes oil pressure and transmission temperature, you’ll always be up to date.
Precision-engineered for speed and efficiency. Styled to be unmistakable. Clean, creased lines set off by bold fender shapes. Sculpted rear shoulders created by an impressive one-piece bodyside panel that is as much a marvel of engineering as it is design.
Large-iameter wheels and tires. Deep-set eyes. Make no mistake: this car is ready for action. The long hood and short rear deck give Camaro its iconic look. Cap it off with high-intensity discharge headlamps with glowing LED halo rings in the available RS Appearance Package (LT, SS).

The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe has received the highest possible five-star score in every individual safety rating segment of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program13.
For Camaro, it’s high performance safety before, during and after a crash.
Standard on every Camaro, antilock brakes and the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control help keep you in control during emergency maneuvers. The control module compares your steering input with the vehicle’s actual response and, if necessary, makes the corrections to help keep you on track.
In the event of a collision, six standard air bags14 help protect heads, chests and knees. And the ultra-strength steel safety cage helps keep everyone in the vehicle protected.
OnStar®11 Automatic Crash Response, standard for the first six months on all Camaro models, means you can be automatically connected to emergency assistance if a crash occurs — whether or not the air bags deploy.
