범블비를 도로에서 만난다 - Chevrolet Camaro (2010)



 영화 '트랜스포머'의 범블비로 유명한 시보레 카마로가 2010년 출시를 앞두고 양산형 모델을 공개하였습니다.
 지난 2006년 북미모터쇼에서 선보인 컨셉모델의 디자인과 컨셉을 고스란히 받아 출시되는 이번 모델은 한국인 디자이너의 작품이기도 해 더욱 인상적입니다. 지난 1969년에 선보인 선대 카마로를 참고하여 레트로적인 분위기를 한층 살린 것이 특징이라고 할 수 있습니다.
 LS, LT, SS세가지 모델레인지를 갖추고 가격은 20000달러 내외에서 결정 될 듯 합니다. 지난 2007년 선보인 컨버터블 모델도 출시될 예정입니다. 엔진은 V6 3.6 엔진이 달리며 아이신제 6단 수동변속기와 자동변속기가 장착됩니다. SS모델은 V8 6.2엔진이 장착될 것으로 알려졌으며, 400마력 이상의 성능을 낼 것이라고 합니다.

 이 개성있는 미국산 쿠페를 국내에서는 만날 수 없는게 아쉽지만 컨셉모델 때 부터 관심있게 봐왔었는데 큰 변화없이 출시되어 다행이면서도 그래서 더욱 관심이 가는것 같습니다. 후미범퍼에 애처롭게 매달려 있는 후진등만 아니라면 잘 나온 모델이라 생각합니다. 변신되지는 않지만 그래도 많은 사람들은 어쩌면 이 모델을 카마로라는 이름보다는 범블비로 더 잘 알것 같습니다.





 Chevrolet introduced the production 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. It is a heritage-inspired sports car for the 21 st century, combining great looks and performance; advanced technology and surprising efficiency - including 26-mpg estimated highway fuel economy. Sales begin in the first quarter of 2009.

 Built on GM's new, global rear-wheel-drive architecture, the Chevrolet Camaro is offered in V-6-powered LS and LT models, as well as the V-8-powered SS. All models and powertrain combinations include fuel-saving six-speed transmissions.




Design

 With a design that is very faithful to the original concept, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro is a 21 st century sports car that acknowledges its heritage. A long front dash-to-axle and short rear deck give the Chevrolet Camaro classic proportions, while a sleek windshield profile, wheels pushed to the corners and muscular fender forms are modern elements that reinforce its advanced engineering - and give the car a decidedly aggressive stance.

Elements such as a forward-V shape at the front of the car and "gills" in the rear quarter panels are distinctly Chevrolet Camaro cues, as are the broad rear fender "shoulders." Those elements make the new Chevrolet Camaro instantly recognizable, but their execution is smoothly integrated into the contemporary exterior form. A family of large, 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels also contributes to the Chevrolet Camaro's modern appearance.

 "The new Chevrolet Camaro is just that - new," said Ed Welburn, vice president of GM Global Design. "We acknowledge the nameplate's strong heritage in the design, but recognize that keeping this modern sports car relevant meant more than simply honoring a classic car. The line forms, stance and overall execution are consistent with other new Chevrolets."

A well-executed balance of heritage, modern design and attention to detail also characterizes the Chevrolet Camaro's interior. A pair of deeply recessed instrument binnacles that feature round gauges in square housings is a nod to classic Camaros, while an available ambient light package offers advanced LED light pipe technology to give the cabin a distinctive and inviting glow. Cloth upholstery is standard; heated leather-appointed seats are available.


 Details such as large, chrome-trimmed controls, low-gloss surfaces and premium fabric or acrylic appliqués convey a richness that is unprecedented in previous Chevrolet Camaro models - and challenge its contemporary competitors. More great detail is evidenced in the available center-console gauge cluster, which takes its cue from a similar option on 1969 Chevrolet Camaro. It displays oil temperature, oil pressure, state-of-battery and transmission fluid temperature, all highlighted with modern LED backlighting.




Powertrains

 An advanced, efficient 3.6L direct-injected V-6 with variable valve timing is standard on LS and LT models. Direct injection technology helps the engine deliver more power through increased efficiency, while maintaining fuel economy and lowering emissions. That means less fuel is consumed and lower emissions generated - including a 25-percent drop in cold-start hydrocarbon emissions.

 The Chevrolet Camaro's 3.6L engine also employs variable valve timing to optimize performance and fuel economy across the rpm range. It is rated at an estimated 300 horsepower (224 kW) and 273 lb.-ft. of torque (370 Nm). A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the 3.6L engine; a Hydra-Matic 6L50 electronically controlled six-speed automatic, with TAPshift control, is available.

The high-performance Chevrolet Camaro SS is equipped with a powerful 6.2L V-8, with a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Standard, manual transmission-equipped models receive the LS3 engine, estimated at 422 horsepower (315 kW) and 408 lb.-ft. of torque (553 Nm). The LS3 debuted on the 2008 Corvette and uses high-flow cylinder heads based on the Corvette Z06's LS7 engine to enable great low-end torque and high-rpm power. It is paired with a TR6060 six-speed transmission.

 A new, L99 V-8 engine is used on automatic transmission-equipped SS models. It is based on the LS3 and carries all of its high-performance design features, but also includes GM's fuel-saving Active Fuel Management feature. It enables the engine to run on only four cylinders during light-load driving conditions, such as highway cruising, to improve fuel economy. The V-8 is estimated at 400 horsepower (299 kW) and 395 lb.-ft. of torque (535 Nm); and it is matched with a Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed transmission. This combination delivers an estimated 23 mpg on the highway.





Body structure and chassis

 The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro is built on GM's global rear-wheel-drive architecture, with a strong body structure that enhances safety, quietness and handling. World-class build quality and attention to detail are enabled by features including one-piece body side stampings and very precise tolerances between body panels.

 Front and rear independent suspensions are mounted to the rigid chassis, including a multi-link strut arrangement in the front with a direct-acting stabilizer bar and a double ball-joint configuration; and a unique, 4.5-link rear suspension that is double-isolated from the chassis for smoother, quieter driving experience.

 Chevrolet Camaro offers two suspensions. LS and LT models receive an FE2 (sport) suspension, while the SS receives the FE3 (performance) suspension, including a lower ride height. Each is tuned to match the performance capabilities of their respective powertrains, as are their wheel-and-tire combinations.

A variable-rate rack-and-pinion power steering system mounts the rack forward of the front axle, for more direct action, an enhanced feeling of driver feedback and better weight balance.


Brakes and chassis control

 Four-wheel disc brakes with ABS are standard on all models. LS and LT models receive single-piston calipers all around, with mass-reducing aluminum rear calipers. SS models have larger rotors that are acted upon by four-piston, aluminum Brembo calipers at all four corners. They are designed to stand up to the severe use encountered on road-race tracks, delivering excellent feedback and pedal feel, as well as fade-resistant performance during racing.

 GM's StabilTrak electronic stability control system is standard and incorporates traction control. The system on SS models includes Competitive/Sport mode that is adjustable for performance driving, such as on a racetrack; it also includes a Launch Control feature on SS models with the manual transmission. It enables quicker, more consistent takeoffs during performance driving.



Safety

 Designed to protect occupants before, during and after a crash, the Chevrolet Camaro offers a comprehensive system of safety features - starting with a robust body structure and integral safety cage around the passenger compartment. High-strength steel and ultra high-strength steel are used in key areas throughout the structure.

Safety technologies integrated in the Chevrolet Camaro include:

  • Driver and front-passenger dual-stage air bags
  • Driver and front-passenger seat-mounted thorax side-impact air bags
  • Head curtain side-impact air bags for front and rear seat occupants
  • Front seat safety belt load limiters and pre-tensioners

The front passenger protection system senses children and small-stature adults and suppresses air bag deployment when appropriate.
