Chevrolet Camaro

The 2002 Chevrolet Camaro Base was introduced to compete in the convertible market. There are 3 trim levels for the Camaro in 2002: Z28 SS and Base. With two doors and spacious seating for four, the rear-wheel drive Camaro makes a statement. There is plenty of competition in the Convertible market, including strong offerings from Lexus.

Chevrolet Camaro Engine Specs

The Camaro Base is equipped with a General Motors 3.8 liter six-cylinder engine that utilizes 12 valves. The Buick engine is mated to a General Motors 4-speed Transmission. This configuration has proven to be a successful design for Chevrolet.

The fuel system for the 2002 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 16.80 gallons.

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 51.80 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 $29,925 when new, with a dealer invoice cost of $27,381. This price was in line with the industry average price for a 2-door Convertible.

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.

Fuel Efficiency

The Base made 25 – 28 miles per gallon highway driving, while dipping to 18 – 19 in the city. This was a respectable number for the model year, but exceeded by several Lexus models available at the time.

We Think…

The 2001 model began the promise of the Chevrolet Camaro. The 2002 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.
