Used Car: 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Review

Review Last Updated: 4/15/15

Test drivers were pleased with the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro's strong engines and well-weighted steering, but disliked its cheap cabin materials and poor outward visibility.

The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro is ranked:

The 2013 Chevy Camaro has a standard V6 that test drivers said makes plenty of power. SS models come with a V8 engine that reviewers agreed has exhilarating power, and the Camaro ZL1 has a supercharged V8, which auto journalists said is incredibly fast. A manual transmission is standard and an automatic is available. The automatic was praised for its well-timed and smooth gear changes. A V6 2013 Camaro with a manual transmission has EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 17/28 mpg city/highway, which is slightly lower than other V6 sports cars' ratings. Reviewers wrote that the Camaro feels nimble through fast turns, especially the performance-oriented SS when it’s equipped with the 1LE package, but critics mentioned that some models feel too heavy. Others wrote that the 2013 Camaro SS' steering is well-weighted and precise. Some test drivers noted that the V6 Camaro rides comfortably over broken roads, while SS models have a firmer ride and don't feel as composed over bumpy pavement.

Automotive journalists said that the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro's cabin is built with low-grade plastics, and several commented that outward visibility, especially to the rear, is limited by large roof pillars. According to test drivers, front-seat headroom is tight, and most critics found that the rear seats offer very little space. The 2013 Camaro has 11.3 cubic feet of trunk space, which is less than that of rivals like the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, and reviewers commented that the trunk's small opening makes it difficult to load bulkier items. Bluetooth, satellite radio and an auxiliary input jack are standard, while available features include Chevy's MyLink infotainment system, a USB port, a nine-speaker Boston Acoustics stereo, leather seats, a rearview camera and navigation. Some critics found the MyLink system intuitive, but others complained that the system's voice command function doesn't work that well.

Other Cars to Consider

According to test drivers, the 2013 Ford Mustang with the base V6 feels powerful, and the V6 Mustang is more fuel-efficient than a V6 Camaro. The Mustang has a bit more trunk space than the Camaro, and reviewers didn’t mention any outward visibility issues like they did in the Camaro.

Reviewers agreed that the 2013 Dodge Challenger's rear seats are among the most spacious in the class, and it also has a larger trunk than the Camaro. Test drivers wrote that the Challenger has ample power with any of its engines, as well as a composed ride.
