2010 Camaro SS: 0-60 in 4.6 seconds

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, California GM engineers at today's official 2010 Chevrolet Camaro unveil were all too willing to provide performance numbers for their hot, new muscle car, including quarter-mile and 0-60-mph times.

Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer for GM's North American rear-wheel-drive platform and owner of a first-generation Camaro convertible, was pleased to run through his baby's accomplishments.

According to Oppenheiser, the new 300-horsepower 3.6-liter V6-equipped Camaro will run from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds regardless of transmission choice. The V6 coupe will cover the quarter-mile in 14.5 seconds with an auto and 14.7 seconds with a manual, both at 97 mph. The brakes don't sound quite as impressive, though, as Oppenheiser said the base Camaro stops from 60 to zero mph in 132 feet.

Not surprisingly, the V8-equipped Camaro SS delivers better numbers across the board. Chevy's Camaro SS outfitted with the 422-hp 6.2-liter LS3 V8 six-speed manual hits 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and runs a 13.4-second quarter-mile at 108 mph according to Oppenheiser. Strangely enough, Oppenheiser also claims that the automatic-equipped SS Camaro, which is rated at 400 hp, runs from zero to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 13.3 seconds. "We optimized the shift points," he said.

Both versions of the V8 Camaro SS pull a maximum 0.90 g on the skid pad. Four-piston Brembo brakes help stop the Camaro SS in 117 feet.

What this means to you: If Chevrolet's numbers pan out, the Camaro SS will be every bit as fast as the Dodge Challenger SRT8 for a lot less money. Kelly Toepke, News Editor

I'm shocked with the weight comparision how the V8 auto edges out the V8 manual in the quarter.

I'm wondering with the weight situation how will it rank with the rustang GT ?

ok sweet so my 422-hp 6.2-liter LS3 V8 six-speed manual will go

0- 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and runs a 13.4-second quarter-mile at 108 mph
and also pulls 0.90 g on the skid pad while still stoping 60-0 in 117 feet?

SWEET!

as underrated has the LS3 is, I think that 13.4 is due to a weak driver or someone under the "take it easy on the car" command.

If a 400hp GTO can muster 12.9, I think a LS3 Camaro equipped with better suspension, more power, and even with the weight can pull something better than 13 flat.

Hell the best time from a stock SRT-8 Chally is 13.1 now. Someone tell big man to put it through harder.

and I think the V6 is a 14 flat car.

Auto is faster then Manual wow that doesnt add up in my head but i guess it might make some people go auto ... 1/4 mile should be a tad faster but when it gets produced there will be more potential just like Z06 if u read around everyone claims 3.7 but it can do3.4second to sixty
