Performance car No. 1: Chevrolet Camaro
Roll-out: Now
Price: $22,245 - $33,430
Fuel economy: 18 city, 29 hwy with V6

Some new GM products have just entered showrooms, and the others are on their way in the next few weeks.

The new Chevrolet Camaro has already proven itself a hot commodity. With either the V8 or V6 engine, performance is powerful and sophisticated. Both versions come with six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. With the V6 engine, the Camaro's fuel economy compares nicely to much more sedate V6-powered cars you could buy.

While the Camaro's interior makes voluminous use of hard plastics, the sort of stuff GM has long been criticized for, the artful design, filled with fun retro touches, more than makes up for that.

Most importantly for GM, Camaros are selling faster than the factory can make them. That's the sort of problem any carmaker could use.


NEXT: Performance car No. 2: Pontiac Solstice Coupe
