2013 Chevrolet Camaro: What's Changed


(Cars.com)

For the 2013 model year, the Chevrolet Camaro gets a new performance package that makes it ready to hit the racetrack.

The LT, SS and ZL1 models are now available with a 7-inch touch-screen (shown above) and the MyLink multimedia system , which adds a better voice-recognition system as well as Pandora and Stitcher internet radio streaming functionality when paired with a smartphone.

The new 1LE performance package is offered on the SS trim with a manual transmission and will be the “most capable track-day” car priced beneath $40,000, according to the carmaker. Updates in the package include a variable-effort electric power-steering system, a dual-mode exhaust system, a manual transmission with a liquid cooling and a higher final-drive ratio, and monotube rear dampers. Twenty-inch aluminum wheels and ultra-high-performance Goodyear tires complete the package.

In addition to the 1LE package (shown below), the electric power-steering system, which was first developed for the ZL1 and found on the 1LE, is also standard on all 2013 SS models. The SS trim also gets an available dual-mode exhaust system for the model year.

The new Camaro lineup goes on sale this fall. Pricing will be released later this year, according to the carmaker.
