First Impressions 1993 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

The 1993 Camaro is an important vehicle to Chevrolet for the convertible market segment. The Z28 is a member of a series of three trim levels for the Camaro which include Indianapolis 500 Pace Car, Z28, and Base. The two-door car with its rear-wheel drive is positioned to aggressively fill this niche for Chevrolet. There is strong competition from vehicles from Hyundai.

Chevrolet Camaro Engine Specs

The Camaro Z28 is equipped with a General Motors 5.7 liter eight-cylinder engine that utilizes 16 valves. The Chevrolet engine is mated to a Hydra-Matic 4-speed Transmission. This configuration has proven to be a successful design for Chevrolet.

The fuel system for the 1993 Camaro is a traditional SFI, running on gasoline fuel. The fuel is controlled by an electronic system and is a fuel-injected MFI design. The capacity of the fuel tank is 15.50 gallons.

The Camaro uses power-assisted brakes, with 2-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.

The original manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) was $16,779 when new, with a dealer invoice cost of an industry-high price. This price was in line with the industry average price for a 2-door Convertible.

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.

Fuel Efficiency

The Z28 made 24 – 25 miles per gallon highway driving, while dipping to 17 in the city. This was a respectable number for the model year, but exceeded by several Hyundai models available at the time.

Conclusion

The 1992 model began the promise of the Chevrolet Camaro. The 1993 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.
