The Chevrolet Camaro is for sale since 2009 and even today the car gets sold a lot. Chevrolet sells more Camaro’s than Ford sells Mustangs. This is the reason why the Camaro still gets uploaded a lot on Autogespot. Now that only the Camaro SS is spot worthy, it is time to tell you how to recognize the different versions of this car.
The Camaro has three versions. The LS, RS and SS. The basis version of the Camaro is the LS, followed up by the RS. Both cars have the same 3.6 liters V6 engine under the hood. The top model is the SS with a 6.2 liters V8 engine under the hood.
Differences at the front of the car
The front of the Camaro LS and RS are the same. The front of the SS is changed. On the left side you see the LS front and on the right side the SS. Most outstanding is the extra panel in the grille which are missing on the LS and RS. The lower bumpers are also different. The fog lights of the SS are more accentuated. Most outstanding difference on the lower bumpers are the more aggressive looks of the SS version.
Differences at the rear of the car
The only difference at the rear of the car is the fact that the LS doesn’t have a rear spoiler while the RS and the SS do have one. Chevrolet only has the Camaro SS for sale in Europe.
The European Camaro can be recognized by the different backlights, See the photo below for an example.
Next to the standard Camaro, Chevrolet also has the so called GMPP bumper kit. This kit consists an extra front splitter, other sideskirts and an new rear bumper. This kit is mostly sold in grey or black plastic which makes it easy to recognize. Next to the new bumpers, the car also gets other rims which are silver and black, other stickers on the hood and extra stickers on the side of the car. This GMPP kit is only available for the SS version of the Camaro.
The Transformers Edition is specially designed for the movies of Transformers where the Camaro SS has a special role. Only the details of this version are a bit different as the Camaro SS. On the side of the car we see the Transformers logo and the word ‘Camaro’ and on the striping we also find the word ‘Transformers’ in matte black letters.
The European Transformers edition has more changes. The striping isn’t in the middle of the hood but on both sides and also on the roof and trunk. The logo on the side is still there and on the back of the car we see a huge spoiler.
