We love the Chevy Camaro: its looks, its power, and its handling ability are nothing short of awesome. And we also love to hit triple digits (on a closed track, of course). But one of the things the Camaro has been criticized for (even by us) ever since the resurrection of the fifth-gen is its heft.
The V6 LTs come in at 3,750lbs and the SS V8s weigh just over 3,860… and that’s for the lighter coupe models, not taking into account the convertibles. Compare that to cross-town rival Mustang and its modest weight of 3,453lbs., and there’s no denying that the Camaro is on the heavy side of the sports car continuum.
And this brings us to the day’s question: would the Camaro be a better sports car if it were lighter? Vote in the poll and feel free to sound off in the comments below.
