The Camaro, manufactured by General Motors under the Chevrolet brand in early 1967. It was developed to compete with the Ford Mustang .By being a compact car by the standards of the time, it was soon popularized as a pony car.This is a classification term in the United States, designed to mean compact sports cars, marketed in that country at relatively affordable prices. Many, however, place him in the pantheon of intermediate sports models, because he also has longer versions. This makes him included in the category of muscle cars (powerful and large vehicles). The car shared the same GM F-Body platform design (a compact rear-wheel-drive platform) and major components of the Pontiac Firebird, also produced in 1967. GM researchers would have found the name Camaro in a French dictionary, as a slang for “friend” or “mate.”.

Generations of Camaro

Four distinct generations of the Camaro were developed before its production came to an end in 2002, later resumed in 2005 expedition car cover.

First generation: 1967-1969

1967 Chevrolet Camaro

GM executives realized that their compact sports car at the time, Corvair, would not be able to generate the same sales volume because of its design and the engine in the rear position. In order to change this scenario, the Camaro was developed. A car that featured conventional rear-wheel drive and front-engine configuration.

Body

Its first series debuted in September of 1966 with the model year 1967. It continued to be produced until 1969. It was available as a 2-door coupe or 2 + 2 seat convertible.

Second generation: 1970-1981

Chevrolet Camaro 1970

Introduced in February 1970, the second generation introduced aesthetic changes made in 1974 and 1978, making the model a little larger but still based on the F-body platform.

Body

The front subchassis, the A-arm front suspension and the spring beam remained to control the solid rear axle.For the first time, the car sold more than the Ford Mustang.

Third generation: 1982-1992

Chevrolet Camaro 1982

These were the first Camaros to offer the modern fuel injection Turbo-Hydramatic 700R4 four-speed and automatic transmission, 15 or 16-inch wheels, standard 4-cylinder engine and hatchback body .

Weight

The cars were at least 220 kg lighter than the previous generation.

Different versions were set up for sports use, street racing and Stock Racing in the United States and Canada.

Fourth generation: 1993-2002

1993 Chevrolet Camaro

Body

An upgraded F-Body platform was developed for the new series, while maintaining the idea of ​​a 2 + 2-seater coupe or convertible, rear-wheel drive and V6 pushrod or V8 engines . Several options, such as a traction control with manual transmission, are now offered. ABS brakes were standardized at the factory .The Camaro remained in production until 2002, marking 35 years of continuous production. Chevrolet also brought an anniversary edition for the 2002 model. But production of the F-body platform was halted due to slower sales in the sports coupe market, especially in the face of strong competition from Ford’s Mustang, whose fifth-generation (2005-2012) had quite satisfactory results.

Fifth generation: 2009 to present
