2011 Chevrolet Camaro 2LS To Get 30 MPG

The battle for the best muscle car, such as the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, on the planet has changed dramatically, as fuel economy is becoming the new battleground.

Ford fired the first blow across the bow of Chevrolet, as their Mustang V6 was able to get 30 miles per gallon on the highway. This was sensational news, as muscle cars have long been thought of as gas guzzling, environmentally damaging machines that are a product of 1960 and not today’s modern world.

Now, Chevrolet might be joining the 30 miles per gallon party with their Camaro, something that will level the playing field. Reports are coming out that indicate the new 2LS trim level, available for order through Chevy’s dealer network at the end of the month, will feature a 3.6-liter direct-injected V6 that will be able to get 30 miles per gallon. If it’s able to get 300 horsepower as well, the Camaro will enter the “300 and 30” club.

This report came from GMInsideNews and if they’re right, which they usually are, the new 2LS Chevrolet Camaro will only be offered with a six-speed automatic transmission and that is enough of a reason to go for the Ford. Chevrolet will decorate the Camaro with a rear spoiler, 18-inch steel wheels and a 2.92 rear axle ration.

The Chevrolet Camaro 2LS will be a 2011 model and it will cost around $24,700 including destination charges. That’s a decent price, but the Mustang V6 is a tad less than that and can come with a manual transmission, so it’s going to be hard to walk away from Ford in this case.

The Chevrolet Camaro has been featured numerous times this week, as the convertible version was given to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers following his Super Bowl MVP title.
