Feature Focus: Listen to the Chevy Camaro’s Sweet V8 Music

The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro doesn’t just look like its forebear from Detroit’s glory days, when properly equipped, it sounds like a big-block original.

Or maybe even better. Today’s version of this legendary nameplate offers superior handling, stops in dramatically shorter distances, is immeasurably safer should the unexpected happen, all while being significantly more fuel efficient and comfortable. But despite the plethora of 21st century improvements, the venerable Camaro still thunders like a 1960’s muscle-machine.

Under the hood of SS models, you’ll find a fire-breathing V8, a 6.2-liter LT1 that delivers 455 horses and just as much torque. It can be paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-ratio auto-box.

But for true audiophiles, the Camaro can also be upgraded with a dual-mode performance exhaustsystem. This option features electronically controlled valves in the mufflers. Under heavy acceleration, they help improve performance and allow more decibels of internal-combustion music to be broadcast to the world. These puppies even allow the driver to customize how much noise is emitted, with a “stealth” mode for quiet cruising and a “track” setting for an all-out assault on your ears.

Customers who prefer the Camaro’s sophisticated 3.6-liter V6 engine can also opt for this juicy extra, though don’t expect it to rumble like small block-powered versions; its tune is more of a high-pitched wail than a continuous fertilizer-plant explosion.

If you’re considering a purchase of this Chevy sports car do yourself a big favor and get the dual-mode performance exhaust system. And really, it’s a bargain, because this upgrade costs just $895.
