Chevrolet Camaro

Standard equipment in the Camaro for 1999 and 2000 includes the 5.7 liter engine by General Motors, weighing in at 8 cylinders and sixteen valves. A 4-speed Automatic Transmission puts the power of the Chevrolet engine to the pavement. This is a long-standing favorite for buyers in the Convertible arena.

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

Vehicle Statistics

The Camaro is 193.50 inches long, 74.10 inches wide, and 51.20 inches high. It has a wheelbase of 101.10 inches. It is able to seat 4 comfortably.

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

The original manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) was $21,615 when new, with a dealer invoice cost of $19,778. This price was in line with the industry average price for a 2-door Convertible.

Fuel Efficiency

The fuel system for the 2000 Camaro is a SFI system, running on gasoline . The fuel is regulated by an electronic system and is a fuel-injected MFI design.

The Z28 made 25 – 27 miles per gallon highway driving, while dipping to 17 – 18 in the city. This was a respectable number for the model year, but exceeded by several Acura models available at the time.

Parting Shots

The 1999 model began the promise of the Chevrolet Camaro. The 2000 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 Z28 will continue to be a profitable vehicle.
