Rent the New 2011 Camaro Convertible to Convert Your Dull Day Into an Exciting One
By Jonathan Max
A typical muscle car is the one that pounds the ground, melts the tire and provides a heat racing excitement. The new 2011 Camaro Convertible is one of such cars. It is a treat to drive such an exciting car. If you are passing a dull day and want to cheer up, go drive the new 2011 Camaro Convertible. Your boring day to day grind will get transformed into sheer exhilaration. However, I have to admit that price of a Camaro Convertible is quite high. An average wage earner will find it difficult to afford this car as GM has put a price tag of $28,500. But this should not stop you from driving it. I would say, the easiest way to fulfill such dream is to hire the car for a day or two and experience the thrill it has to offer.
Undeniably, the new Camaro Convertible is a beauty with a sturdy and well-tailored top. It also provides a good handling. So if you are looking for some fun for a sunny weekend or a warm summer evening, you might just consider renting out the new Camaro Convertible 2011. The handling of the new Camaro Convertible is truly first-class due to its excellent front and rare weight distribution. GM has incorporated additional bracings on the body and extra stiffness on the suspension to make the vehicle sportier.
This new 2011 model comes with two available engines – a 3.6 liter V6 or a honking 6.2 liter V8. If you are one of those lucky ones, your rental agency might just have both of them in their closet. You can then pick the one you want and hit the road! The 3.6 liter V6 comes with a 312 horsepower engine and six speeds manual or auto transmission, while the 6.2 liter V8 comes with a 426 horsepower engine and manual transmission or a 400 horsepower auto transmission. I prefer a V8 with manual transmission as it gives me the freedom to accelerate in quick time. Just a reminder that the V8 accelerates like a bat out of hell! For you information, the V8 powered Camaro accelerates 0 -60 in 4.9 seconds while the V6 accelerates in a little over 6 seconds.
One of the major factors to consider before hiring the V6 or V8 is their fuel consumptions. The V6 powered Camaro convertible is less expensive as well as more fuel efficient than the V8. The V6 with automatic transmission has a rating of 18 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city which for the V8 is 16, while on the highway the ratings are 29 and 25 mpg respectively. The manual V6 and V8 in the city rates 17 and 16 while on the highway it rates 29 and 24 respectively. I advice you to take careful notes of these statistics before renting out a Camaro.
The interior of the new model is just marvelous. It has four rectangular gauges on the center console showing the oil pressure and battery voltage. Some of the rectangular gauges come with orange and black upholstery that glows in the dark. The front seats have plenty of space. However, the rear seats are cramped and hold only two passengers. Moreover, as the car comes with only two doors, it is difficult for adults to get in and out of the back seat. But apart than this, the car is great in every other aspect.
For safety reasons, the new 2011 Camaro Convertible includes sheltering equipments like antilock disk brakes, stability and traction control, front and side air bags, head protector and cabin length side curtain bags.
In one word, the new 2011 Camaro Convertible is a startling vehicle and rightfully many of us dream of driving this beauty. As I said before, if you can not afford it, rent it from the nearer car rental company to convert your dull day into an exciting one!
If you want to fulfill your dream of driving a Camaro convertible, go rent it!
2010 Chevrolet Camaro – A Muscle Car Done Right
By Daniel Legal
After years of waiting to see the newest muscle car addition to the automobile world, Chevrolet’s Camaro (new and improved) doesn’t just live up to all of the hype but it definitely shows what a muscle car can be if done with excellence.
The new Camaro is powerful regardless if it’s equipped with the standard direct-injected V6 or the upgraded V8 option. The V6 powered Camaro is able to get up to 60 mph in about 6.0 seconds. The reason is primarily due to the 300 horses it has. But the V8 upgraded model can jump to 60 mph in a blazing 5.0 seconds, thanks to the 426 horses it packs. And the handling of the new 2010 Camaro is superb, able to handle turns and curves while going over 60 mph.
When it comes to the body trims, Chevy made it their purpose to give buyers several options to choose from. The 2010 Camaro comes in five different trim levels, which includes: base LS, 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, and the 2SS. The V6 comes in the LS, 1LT and the 2LT trim levels, while the V8 option will be found in the 1SS and 2SS trims.
The LS standard equipment is loaded with front bucket seats with power-reclining seatbacks, cloth upholstery, keyless entry, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, air-conditioning, a CD/MP3 system and 18-inch black steel wheels. And yes, the CD/MP3 audio system does have satellite radio equipped with an auxiliary audio jack. The 1LT comes with added foglamps, a six-way power driver seat and 18-inch alloy wheels. The 2LT adds a little more equipment with heated side mirrors, leather upholstery, a USB audio system with Bluetooth technology, auto-dimming capability for the driver-side and inside mirrors, heated power front seats, as well as a Boston acoustics audio system with the controls located on the steering wheel.
The 1SS has SS-exclusive interior and exterior styling with 20-inch aluminum wheels. It also comes with Brembo brakes, and the engine is a 6.2-liter V8. The 2SS combines the 2LT’s standard equipment and the 1SS’s sporty style and performance hardware.
Available with the new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro are two optional packages. With the 1LT model you can add the Convenience and Connectivity package. This package adds a USB port, a cargo net, remote start, Bluetooth technology, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and mounted audio controls on the steering wheel. The other package is the RS package, which is available on all V6 models excluding the LS model. The RS package adds a spoiler, 20-inch aluminum wheels, xenon headlights and other enhancements on the exterior. More options available on all except the LS model are options for special graphics on the exterior and a sunroof.
The new 2010 Camaro is a sure thing for drivers who are attracted to muscle cars. It’s powerful, attractive and has a host of equipment that will definitely satisfy. It can give luxury performance vehicles a run for their money, thanks to its raw power, superb handling and incredible suspension tuning. The price for the V6 model is a bargain at around $22K and it produces great speed and a sophisticated feel, while the V8 is priced thousands more, it’ll deliver at full throttle the classic roar that you would expect from a muscle car.
But even with the performance and power, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro still handles quite well around town and on the highway when it comes to the comfort of the ride and noise from the outside. There’s no doubt, this Camaro is a winner on so many levels.
