2010 Chevrolet Camaro Synergy Special Edition

evolveteam May 2, 2010 0

Apparently the latest 305-hp V-6 Mustang just so happened to beat the current Camaro V-6’s rating by a single horsepower. The 2011 Camaro V-6 will put down 312 hp at 6500 rpm (100 rpm later) and 278 lb-ft of torque at 5100 rpm (100 rpm earlier), the latter an increase of 5 lb-ft. The updated output numbers are not the result of any changes to the engine, though. Chevrolet says its original numbers were conservative and that these new ones are SAE-certified.

Testers tested 0-to-60-mph time for the 2010 Camaro V-6 is 5.9 seconds, while the 2011 Mustang V-6 we recently tested got up to speed in 5.4; it’s unlikely that an extra 8 hp and 5 lb-ft would close that gap—especially because they were already there in the first place.
