HOLDEN Special Vehicles (HSV) has released limited specification details for its upcoming imported Chevrolet Camaro, which will help carry the performance torch for the brand following the completion of local Commodore manufacturing.
Revealed on HSV’s consumer website, the Camaro, which will be offered in a single 2SS specification level, is based on the 2018 model and not the refreshed version revealed in April.
As expected, the Camaro will be motivated by a 6.2-litre direct injection V8 that develops 339kW/617Nm, mated exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, missing out on the ten-speed unit in the 2019 model. The six-speed manual option will not be offered.
Power is sent to the rear wheels with a limited-slip differential helping channel grunt to the road, while stopping power comes courtesy of Brembo performance brakes with four-piston front and rear callipers.
Engine performance is aided by auxiliary engine coolant, an external engine oil cooler, an extra-capacity cooling system and a bi-modal performance exhaust with polished stainless-steel tips.
Styling highlights include 20-inch, five-spoke silver-painted alloy wheels wrapped in 245/40 front and 275/35 Goodyear Eagle run-flat rubber, a rear stanchion spoiler, front splitter and a louvred bonnet.
Inside, the Camaro will score a 7.0-inch MyLink touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, wireless phone charging, leather-trimmed sports bucket front seats with heating and ventilation, dual-zone climate control, a sunroof, a leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel with tilt and reach adjustment; an 8.0-inch digital instrument cluster, a rear folding bench seat, front floor mats, interior ambient lighting and illuminated door sill plates.
Standard safety equipment includes blind-spot warning, lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, rearview camera, electronic stability control and seven airbags.
No mention has yet been made of autonomous emergency braking, which if not included on Australian examples, will make the Camaro ineligible for a five-star safety rating from crash safety watchdog Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).
HSV says that timing for the arrival of the Camaro is still to be confirmed, however a July debut is currently expected.
Exact Australian specification and pricing will be announced closer to the model’s launch.
