Chevy Camaro Is Motor Trend Car Of The Year

Chevy Camaro Motor Trend car of the year

The Chevy Camaro has been named as Motor Trend magazine’s car of the year. The company’s Colarado model also picked up Truck of the Year honors.

The Camaro beat an impressive lineup of finalists that included the Audi TT, BMW 7 Series, Honda Civic, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Mercedes-Benz GT S, and Toyota Mirai.

The Camaro “is one of the finest driving vehicles in the world at any price, though its price is well within reach of the average consumer,” said Edward Loh, editor-in-chief of Motor Trend.

In redesigning the new Camaro model, Chevy removed 200 pounds from the previous model. Chevy offers the car in three engine choices: A turbocharged 275-horsepower four-cylinder engine, a 335-horsepower V-6, and a 455-horsepower V-8.

Motor Trend called the Camaro a car that isĀ “built for driving enthusiasts.”

The Chevrolet Colorado marks General Motors’ re-entry into the mid-size truck market, an arena that Ford (F) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAM) had abandoned.

This marks the second year the Colorado has won the magazine’s top award. For 2016, the truck offers a new four-cylinder diesel engine that gives it strong pulling power and still allows for highway fuel economy of 31 miles per gallon.
