Four different power train options, a drive mode selector, superb connectivity with 4G LTE and 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds flat (ZL1 Spec.) on a 10-speed automatic transmission, what else could one ask for in a sport car with race capability. Camaro is just that and much more with its high refinement, advanced engineering and excellent performance aided by intelligent design.With the 2018 release still available, there are also several used Chevrolet Camaro’s available at Coeur d’Alene used Chevrolet dealer which could be a good choice to consider, especially with the 2019 Camaro dropping some trims variants and upgradable features. One such change is the removal of an option to upgrade the base 1LD RWD Coupe, one of the more popular of the Camaros in 2018, to the available 3.6L V6 DI engine which was a friendly option in the 2018 model which has been dropped in the 2019 model. Apart from saving on the price, there seems to be some advantage of driving a used 2018 Chevrolet Camaro which we explore.
