2018 Chevy Camaro

The Top Five Ways the 2018 Chevy Camaro Is More Art than Automobile

From its distinctive name to its passionate style, the 2018 Chevy Camaro has truly been a piece of art rather than simply an automobile. This isn’t to say the Camaro’s abilities as a car aren’t remarkable. It’s actually quite the reverse, considering that it’s this ride’s automotive prowess which gives it such artistry.

Often time the Camaro is viewed as merely a sporty, muscle machine or pony car. This leaves many missing the creative majesty that this car holds. Its power, performance, and precision are more than practicality, its passion.

This praise may seem like overkill, but it’s honestly not by much if any. If there is disbelief in your soul, then allow this article the honor of enlightening you on the top five ways Chevy’s 2018 Camaro model is actually more art than auto, other than being priced like a masterpiece that is.


What’s in The Name?

There is actually a very interesting story about the Camaros namesake. It began as just an addition to Chevy’s pattern of naming cars with a C. They just happened to use Camaro, and many questioned their choice. After a bit of back and forth on possible interpretations, Chevy finally decided just to say “A Camaro is a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs.” And that became its definition from that point on.

Now, this may have you wondering what this has anything to do with Art. Naming a painting to an artist is almost a transcendental moment. It must truly speak to the heart of not just the creator, or the viewers, but the creation itself. The Camaro has been blessed with a unique, meaningful, and admittedly humorous namesake that has more meaning than most automobiles on the line today.


Passionate Speed

When you think Camaro, you think swift. In fact, there is probably already a portrait in your mind of a red, black, or yellow Chevy Camaro with a blurred road behind it in your mind at this moment.

The 2018 model of the Camaro was born to burn the roads. It has a supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 offering 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft of torque. Along with its added 10-speed paddle-shift, standard Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo® brakes, and anywhere from 17-19 MPG this vision doesn’t just drive, its sores on the passion of its creators.


Refined Engineering and Style

At the mention of creators, it’s also important to recognize the artist and artistry behind the 2018 Chevy Camaro. Those that built this model went above and beyond by not just designing it with the basic needs, but with every need. Sure, under the hood this pony car has got all the speed and power of a stampede, but that is just the start.

The exterior speaks, literally with a roaring engine, to the aggressive and powerful soul the creators put into the Camaro. Look carefully, and you’ll see it’s even received a more retro-chic appearance which gives it character in its 2018 series. With a standard of 18-in alloy wheels, a 6-speed manual transmission, and automatic headlights you are all set from the start.

The outside is impressive, but like with all art, it’s the depth of what matters. Other than the back seats being a bit small, the comfort and improved style of the interior will really wow drivers. It also It even offers some space to place a few items in the trunk.

It also refuses to skimp on tech. A 7-in touchscreen infotainment system, backup camera, keyless access, dual power front seats, Bluetooth, and USB ports are all standard. This pony has got looks, power, and brains, and for that, we thank Chevy.


Sculptured Forms

Since before man could remember, society has sculpted figures of every shape and size to honor that which we treasure. The 2018 Camaro has also been sculpted to perfection. Not just in one form though, but in four anything but basic, figures. Here are the four 2018 models of Chevy Camaros.



The LS/LT model is described as light and nimble. It’s got the speed but keeps its control. This would make the widespread vision of the line.



The SS model works hard to be the fastest and most powerful with its V8 engine and 455 horsepower. It refuses to let itself be controlled. Leaving this version of the Camaro to be the flashy vision only seen by a true wild child and deep admirers of the piece.



Top offs to this piece. Pun intended. The Convertible allows for a sense of true freedom with its stylish exterior. This is the shallow vision; we admire it just for the beauty it displays.



For those that may want a bit more muscular, the ZL1 is the model. It has 650 horsepower is perfect for the streets or the track. Putting this Camaro as the stubborn vision that goes against the grain.

Basically, the 2018 Chevy Camaro is all about the vision the driver has for it. You can’t really go wrong with any of this picture, perfect models. You could even say they were sculpted just for you.


Made For The Dreamer

The special thing about art is that it hits a personal cord with each person. In turn, the Camaro is also fully customizable to your individual tastes. Select some hot wheels if you are feeling spicy, or possibly some stripes to give it some personality. On top of that, multiple colors and accessories are up for grabs when purchasing this amazing masterpiece of auto.

If you want speed and style, you could probably invest in any number of flashy automobiles and be perfectly satisfied. But, if you want something that speaks to the passionate, bold, and wild dreamer within your soul, you want a work of art like the 2018 Chevy Camaro. All cars can be considered auto, but very few can be called art.
