Chevrolet Camaro’s Four Generations

The world has come to know four generations of the Chevrolet Camaro and each of these generations were distinct and unique from the rest. At first, this vehicle was actually made known to the public in the United States and the rest of North America in the early part of 1967. It was presented by the General Motor’ Chevrolet Motor Division. It was destined to be a competition for the Ford Mustang. It also used the very same F Body Platform which was from General Motors, along with other major components that the Pontiac Firebird also used. That is why many people who have come to know and to remember the Chevrolet Camaro says and remembers this vehicle as the Pontiac Firebird’s sister, or sibling at that.

During that period, the Chevrolet Camaro was known to be a compact car. And soon enough, it was known to be a pony car. This meant that it was a competitor of the Ford Mustang. Aside from that reputation, the Chevrolet Camaro was also classified as an intermediate touring car, a sports car, as well as a muscle car. However, this car make ended its career in 2002.

The first generation of this vehicle lived from 1967 up until 1970. It held a unibody structure from the windshield up to the firewall back. There was a separate steel rail subframe for everything found at the front. It was lean and aggressive, although the steering was kind of slow and manual. In the middle of 1970, the second generation of the Chevrolet Camaro made its way to the streets. This second group held a styling that was inspired by Ferrari. It came to be bigger, and much heavier. However, because of this, it made the Chevrolet Camaro become less powerful. This second generation ended in 1981. Come the year 1982 up until 1992, it was actually the time for the third generation of Chevrolet Camaros to shine. These were the first vehicles to be built without front subframes or leaf spring rear suspensions. They also were the very first generation of Chevrolet Camaros to boast of factory fuel injection, four speed automatic transmission, five speed manual transmissions, four cylinder engines, 16 inch wheels, and hatchback bodies. As per the last generation of this vehicle, it lasted from 1993 up until 2002. It held new plastic front fenders, a new short arm and long arm front suspension, a rack and pinion steering, as well as a sleek new look that made it quite popular to more people.
