The rear-wheel-drive 2010 Chevy Camaro SS is powered by either a 3.6-liter direct-injected V6 (LS, 1LT, 2LT) or a 6.2-liter V8 (1SS, 2SS). Both are equipped with either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic with manual shift control. The V6 is rated at 300 hp and 273 pound-feet of torque. The V8 with manual transmission can produce 426 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. The top speed is 155mph.
The V6 can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.0 seconds. The commanding V8 can surge from 0 – 60 mph in 5.0 seconds. The fuel economy range is estimated at 17 mpg city and 29 highway for the V6 (18 mpg city with the automatic), and 16 mpg city and 24 highway with the V8 (25 mpg highway with the automatic).
Built for a smooth and quiet drive, front and rear independent suspensions are mounted to the rigid chassis, which includes a multi-link strut arrangement in the front with a direct-acting stabilizer bar and a double ball-joint configuration. It also contains a 4.5-link rear suspension that is double-isolated from the chassis.
