Iconic to Its Core
The Chevrolet Camaro is more than just an American muscle car. It has helped shape the automotive industry in the US, inspired generations of performance car enthusiasts, and even influenced pop culture–making the Camaro a highly-coveted vehicle to this very day.
Born out of competition, the Camaro was designed to be a leader in the personal coupe market. Since Chevrolet sold the first Camaro in 1967, more than 5 million units of the vehicle have conquered open and city roads in various parts of the world. In a span of more than 50 years and six generations, the Camaro has won various accolades including Motor Trend’s 2014 Best Driver’s Car award–making the vehicle the first American-brand car to receive it.
Today, the Camaro continues to dominate the road with its thrilling driving dynamics and fierce sporty design.
The Heart of a Sports Car
The latest Camaro RS offering from Chevrolet Philippines is powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC VVT direct injection turbo engine that delivers 275 horsepower and 398 Nm of torque. Coupled with an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, the Camaro inspires a responsive and efficient everyday drive on the freeway.
The Camaro is fitted with high-performance Brembo brakes featuring four-piston calipers, promising track enthusiasts with serious stopping power while maintaining street drivability.
The Mark of An Athlete
The Camaro was designed to be an iconic masterpiece. With its sculpted hood, boldly reimagined grilles, piercing LED headlamps, heritage-inspired taillamps, and muscular flanks, the high-performance vehicle is guaranteed to make an unmistakable impression on the road.
Complementing its dramatic and contemporary architecture is the RS package that highlights the Camaro’s sporty attitude. Five-spoke, 20-inch machined wheels, LED tail lamps, decklid spoiler, polished honeycomb grille, illuminated Camaro sill plates, RS badge, and black front and rear Chevrolet bowtie emblems complete the Camaro’s athletic style.
Inside, the sixth-generation muscle car features a refined cockpit optimized for performance driving–leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, black leather interior panel, and custom leather-trimmed dashboard and console. The driver sport buckets memory seat features an eight-way power adjust and ventilated with cooling and heating, while the passenger sport buckets seat features a six-way power adjust with cooling and heating ventilation.
A Modernized Muscle

Its eight-inch reconfigurable driver information display with digital and analog gauges links to Driver Mode Selector that allows one to choose between various vehicle characteristics for a full customized driving experience.
