The Chevrolet Camaro Base for 1996

Standard equipment in the Camaro for 1995 and 1996 includes the 3.8 liter engine by General Motors, weighing in at 6 cylinders and twelve valves. A 4-speed Automatic Transmission puts the power of the Buick engine to the pavement. This is a long-standing favorite for buyers in the Convertible arena.

The Camaro uses power-assisted brakes, with 4-Wheel ABS support. The front brakes are disc while the rear brakes are disc. Steering is handled through a power-steering rack-style configuration. The car uses coil and coil springs front and rear respectively.

Vehicle Statistics

The Camaro is 193.20 inches long, 74.10 inches wide, and 51.30 inches high. It has a wheelbase of 101.10 inches. It is able to seat 4 comfortably.

There is a 50,000* mile, 60* month warranty with this vehicle, including a powertrain warranty of 50,000*/36* miles/months. This is normal for this price range.

The original manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) was $14,990 when new, with a dealer invoice cost of an industry-low price. This price was in line with the industry average price for a 2-door Convertible.

Fuel Efficiency

The fuel system for the 1996 Camaro is a SFI system, running on gasoline . The fuel is controlled by an electronic system and is a fuel-injected MFI design. The 15.50-gallon tank provides the fuel storage for longer trips.

The Base made 29 – 30 miles per gallon highway driving, while dipping to 19 in the city. This was a respectable number for the model year, but exceeded by several Lexus models available at the time.

What We Think of the Chevrolet Camaro

The 1995 model began the promise of the Chevrolet Camaro. The 1996 expanded on this success and has proven to be a strong seller in most markets. Even with strong competition from other manufacturers Chevrolet hopes that the Camaro Base will continue to be a profitable vehicle.
