The Chevrolet Camaro Turbo doesn’t get a lot of love, but that’s because the Camaro SS, and even the Camaro’s V6, are pretty darn good. Matt Farah received some wheel time in a Camaro Turbo recently on a new One Take review episode, and it gives viewers some more insight into what the base powertrain is like in the sixth-generation Camaro.
The owner told Farah he’s done light modifications such as a muffler delete for extra noise and a new tune to provide more low-end power and a smidge more power at the top. Still, Farah found power at the top lacking, but a big torque unload occurred around 2,000 rpm, which he appreciated. That’s where the grunt was, like most modern cars with turbocharged engines.
According to Farah, the chassis is still superb and with even less weight compared to a Camaro SS, the Camaro Turbo felt even lighter on its feet. Also worth noting: the Camaro Turbo in the video is fully loaded and stickered for around $36,000, according to the owner. Per his story, the dealer had trouble selling a fully-loaded Camaro Turbo, which gave him the opportunity to purchase the car for around $26,000. That’s a steal.
