Credit the Chevrolet Camaro’s success to the brand’s ideologies of creating niche vehicles or the muscle car’s raw vigor and mightiness, either way, the midsize coupe makes for an alluring proposition in the segment. While it has lost in terms of revenue streams to its closest competitors, the 2022 MY is expected to be the game-changer that brings back the Chevrolet Camaro to its winning terms against the likes of the 2021 Ford Mustang and 2022 Dodge Challenger.

With the 2022 Camaro, Chevrolet has sought to introduce evident changes into the vehicle. These include the options of a new color scheme and the complete exclusion of the 1LE package from the 4-cylinder and V6 engine trims. With other aspects remaining unchanged, the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro will continue to delight buyers with its agility and versatility with three potent engine options on offer and unforgettable ride quality.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Features

The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro like its predecessor is an all-encompassing model that is available in a number of trims and configurations, that caters to a distinct set of buyers. While the prices for the current iteration have not yet been revealed, they are expected to be priced at $500 over and above the current cost. Consequently, we expect the 2022 Camaro to fall in a price range that extends from $25,500 to $32,000.

As standard, it comes equipped with features like keyless entry, a comprehensive airbag system, and a rearview camera. Like always, the Chevrolet Camaro will be available in two body styles; coupe and convertible. Channeled as an RWD variant, the midsize coupe will share three distinct engine options amongst themselves. However, the top-tier V8 unit will be available with the LT1, SS, and ZL1 trims only.

We Recommend

The exclusion of the 1LE package option from the lineup stands to complicate the buying decision. However, we would recommend opting for the V6 engine trims for sheer brute and power in the performance that the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro displays. Amongst the trim options, the 3LT that bears an expected MSRP of $32,000 will be the best bet in the segment with its abundant feature-load that combines specifications available with the base and mid-level trims and adds advanced driver-assistance features for a holistic riding experience. However, if you aim at glorious acceleration, the V8 engine-equipped trims will be the most suitable option.

Release Date

The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro was slated for release in the third quarter of 2022. However, with delays in production, it is expected that the 2022 Camaro might go into production by late September this year. While it is difficult to ascertain a defined timeline in the presence of such alterations, sources believe that in both coupe and convertible avatar, the Chevrolet Camaro should be available in the market by the last quarter of the year.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Engine and Performance

With no changes to its powertrain setup, the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro will continue to vaunt three distinct engine options. The standard unit available from the base trim is a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 engine which is good for 275hp and 295lb.-ft. Available as optional on the 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trims is a 3.6L V6 engine that churns out 335hp of power and 284lb.-ft of torque.

The third and final engine setup available only with the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro LT1, SS, and ZL1 trim and is a 6.2L V8 engine which grants an enormous 650hp and 650lb.-ft of torque. Each trim of the midsize coupe is channeled as an RWD variant and comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. While the manual unit gives the driver greater autonomy while driving the vehicle, the optional 8-speed automatic transmission is also immensely refined and bestows a smooth driving experience.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe driving view

The steering system reeks of unmatched precision and allows for great handling capabilities even when cornering at high speed. The adaptable suspension system works well to adjust to several driving conditions. The power delivery of the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro with the inline-4 engine is expected to be surprisingly linear that will allow it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and a quarter-mile can be completed in 12.2 seconds.

While the top speed of 130 MPH is not the best in class, the Chevrolet’s ability to respond to throttle inputs almost instantaneously makes it a top-grade choice over its competitors. But it is not just acceleration where the 2022 Camaro manages to dust its competitors, it is also a serious performer when braking capabilities are concerned, decelerating from 60 to 0 mph in a matter of 96ft. Impressive, isn’t it?

The 2022 Dodge Challenger is the most distinct coupe when compared to its competitors. Its V6 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission cause it to differ from its contemporaries that use turbocharged inline-4 units and a 6-speed manual setup. On the other hand, the 2021 Ford Mustang produces the highest output in the segment of 310hp and 350lb.-ft of torque. While it closely follows the 2022 Camaro in performance clocking 4.4 seconds in the 60-mph run, the Dodge Challenger is almost half to a complete second slower than its rivals.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Fuel Economy

6.0/10

Since its engine options will be carried over the 2021 MY, the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro will average similar fuel efficiency and mileage as its predecessor. In the city, an inline-4 engine-equipped Camaro manages to average 19 MPG, which increases considerably to 29 MPG when sweeping through the highway. Combined, it manages 22 miles per gallon of fuel. Associate its frugality with its 19-gallon fuel tank and the 2022 Camaro manages a range of 456 miles in a single fuel stop. But fret not, if you are looking for a fuel-efficient Chevrolet Camaro, the electric variant of the vehicle that is in advanced stages of planning, could be your one-stop solution.

In the segment, it is difficult to base a buying decision purely on the basis of the MPG each vehicle manages. The 2021 Ford Mustang Ecoboost is the most conservative and efficient in the segment averaging a combined mileage of 24 MPG, while the Challenger remains only a notch lower at 23 MPG. In terms of range, however, the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro gains ground due to its larger fuel tank. While the 2022 Dodge Challenger is evenly matched, the Ford Mustang at 365 miles of combined range is rather lowly placed.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Interior

9.0/10

The ergonomic cabin of the outgoing model is the most practical and likable aspect that the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro carries forward. It’s in all aspects suited to cater to the needs of the driver. The steering mounted controls are the first hint of an accessible setup, while the placement of infotainment knobs and controls enhance the easy-going nature inside.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe front seats

In its fit and finish, the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro reflects top-notch craftsmanship. The use of soft-touch plastics, leather padding, and the monochrome color tone all combine to give the cabin a sophisticated yet athletic look. The dashboard houses the infotainment system centrally and the unification of a central and analog gauge cluster gives the Camaro a contemporary and new-fangled appeal.

While there are two upholstery options on offer, the front seats are a comfortable and luxurious place to be in. The rear seats feel rather cramped and are best suited for kids only, but it’s a segment-wide issue and not particular to the Chevrolet’s coupe. The low-lying front seats do grant a sportscar-like aura, however, when equated with the heightened dashboard they do have a bearing on the visibility outside.

When compared to the competition, the 2022 Dodge Challenger is the only car in the segment that can seat five passengers. While space upfront is best in the 2021 Ford Mustang, the declined headroom due to receding rooflines and constrained legroom for rear-seat passengers is a commonality in the market.

While the 2022 Challenger provides a sense of relief with a tad bit of extra space, its cargo capacity is sure to leave you grinning from ear to ear. At 16.2 cubic feet, it hosts the highest trunk volume followed by the Ford Mustang. In this aspect, the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro remains at the bottom of the segment with a total cargo space of 9.1 cubic feet.

Some of the salient interior features of the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro include:

  • Cloth/ Leather Upholstery
  • Driver and Passenger Seats with power adjustability
  • Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel
  • Adjustable Steering Wheel
  • Cruise Control
  • Dual-zone Climate Control (available on 2LT and above)

How intuitive is the infotainment system of the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro?

The infotainment system of the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro is extremely functional and its intuitiveness is where its affability lies. There is no steep learning curve to understand its dynamics and even from the base variant, it feels heavily equipped. The availability of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto speaks volumes about Chevrolet’s efforts to provide an up-to-date experience to its buyers. The rearview camera gets connected to the seven- or eight-inch central screen, depending on the trim one opts for, so does the navigation system. Some other infotainment system features include:

  • USB Connection
  • Bluetooth Connectivity
  • 6-speaker sound system (on 1LS, 1LT, and 2LT trims)
  • 9-speaker Bose Premium Sound System (3LT trim onwards)
  • Satellite Radio

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Exterior

9.0/10

The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro borrows its designing cues from the outgoing model and continues to be built to one’s liking and has an irresistible appeal to it. The chiseled and sculpted hood has an athletic look to it and the slim head- and tail lights fit neatly into the overall exterior design. The front grille houses the brand logo and the gracious curves and lines that run throughout the entire body are dealt with gracefully.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe

From every angle, the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro looks aerodynamic and refreshing. With no changes in its dimensions, the Chevrolet continues to garner a solid road presence. It is 188.3 inches long with a wheelbase that extends to 110.7 inches. However, it sports the lowest clearance of 4.0 inches, which does give it a rugged look, but it also means that the driver will at all times have to remain cautious of untoward surfaces.

The 2022 Dodge Challenger is the largest vehicle in the segment. It is the heaviest weighing 3,858 lbs. It is also the longest, widest, and tallest in the segment measuring 197.9, 75.7, and 57.7 inches, respectively. It stands at a wheelbase of 116.2 inches, however, features lower ground clearance. On the other hand, the 2021 Ford Mustang is the lightest coupe at 3,705 lbs and it sports the highest clearance from the ground at 5.4 inches.

In terms of design, however, all three cars carry the robustness you would expect from a true-blue muscle car. While the 2021 Ford Mustang and 2022 Chevrolet Camaro have the modernity and a new-fangled design, the 2022 Dodge Challenger could use a mid-life update on its design and if sources are to be believed, we might see a refreshed fascia on the Challenger for the MY 2023.

Some of the exterior features of the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro include:

  • Camaro Logo Package
  • Rear Spoiler
  • Sunroof
  • Optional Black Exhaust Tips
  • 1LE package (available with the LT1 and higher trims)
  • Ground Effects Package

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Safety

9.0/10

With the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro yet to hit the markets, the safety ratings have not been ascertained. However, given its similarities to the outgoing model, the current iteration is expected to perform likewise. The 2021 model of the Camaro managed to score a perfect rating by both federal agencies, the NHTSA and IIHS. With minimal changes to the setup and no official confirmation regarding an updated safety system, the 2022 Camaro will feature a 10-airbag system, rearview camera, and teen driver system as standard. Other salient specifications include:

  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Blind-spot Monitor
  • Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Front Collision Warning
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • OnStar and Chevrolet Emergency Connect SOS

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Competition

6.0/10

2022 Chevrolet Camaro vs 2022 Dodge Challenger

The Dodge Challenger is a long-standing competitor in the muscle car segment and the 2022 MY carries the legacy forward gracefully. It is one of the most viable competitors in the segment and perhaps, one of the few vehicles that use a standard V6 engine. However, its longer dimensions and heavier curb weight restrict its acceleration causing it to be a tad bit slower than its competitors.

2022 Dodge Challenger

However, it is marginally more efficient than the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro. Additionally, it also features higher space on the inside, an additional seat, and best-in-class cargo capacity. The only downside we see is its old-fangled design and if you are someone who can compromise marginally on design for practicality, the 2022 Dodge Challenger will make for a viable proposition. However, if you want a little of something, the Chevrolet Camaro is the better option.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro vs 2021 Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang arguably pioneered the trend of muscle cars into the segment and well, as a flag-bearer it has set the bar pretty high. Its uniqueness lies in the number of trims, configurations, and engine options it provides to the buyers. It is the most powerful in the segment in terms of power and torque output and is only diminutively slower than the segment-leading 2022 Chevrolet Camaro.

2021 Ford Mustang

It is the most efficient vehicle in the segment, but it manages the lowest range in the segment due to its smaller fuel capacity. Both coupes can seat similar passengers and have almost equal space. The 2022 Ford Mustang, however, leads in cargo capacity and space for rear-seat occupants. The warranty policy and maintenance costs are almost indistinguishable and it is difficult to declare a certain winner. Thus, amongst the two, which vehicle to choose will depend on the buyer’s pocket size, appetite for features, and eventually, the exterior design.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Final Verdict

The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro is in all ways an embodiment of the brand and the segment that it falls in. Its build quality, design, and performance are all suggestive of Chevrolet’s knack for producing consumer-friendly vehicles that deliver exceptionally. By being one of the few muscle cars on offer, the Camaro has managed to etch its name in the “hall of fame” by being a stiff competitor that drives smoothly and safely.

While the standard specifications are enough to satiate all your needs, the brand offers a number of package options to spoil yourself further. While it does face intense heat from its contemporaries, by managing powerful performance, impressive fuel efficiency, and a comprehensive infotainment and safety system, the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro ensures that it provides you the best experience at an affordable price and well, we see no reason to veto it.
