Chevrolet Camaro
Starting Price: $23,705
The famed Camaro has gone through a number of iterations since its introduction back in 1966, but the car was dropped from Chevy’s lineup in 2002. Chevy made up for the eight-year gap with the introduction of an all-new model in 2010. With styling reminiscent of the original from the 1960s, the new Camaro garnered considerable attention. Today only the Camaro 3.6 1LS limbos under the $25,000 bar, but this base Camaro is still worthy of the name. The 3.6-liter V6 engine puts out 323 horsepower yet still delivers 28 mpg on the highway. While the V6 can provide plenty of smiles, if you’re willing to spend more there are a variety of high-performance options available, including the ZL1 that boasts a 6.2-liter V8 putting out 580 horsepower and an amazing exhaust note. The excitement around Camaro should continue — an all-new 2016 model is slated to debut in May.
