All 2021 Chevrolet Camaro models come with basics like side-curtain airbags, a backup camera, anti-lock brakes, front-knee airbags, front-side airbags, plus GM’s
OnStar telematics system. Options include forward-collision warning and a blind spot monitoring system with
rear cross-traffic alert. Unlike most new cars, including the Ford Mustang, the Camaro does not have more advanced safety and driver-assistance features such as automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist or adaptive cruise control. In crash tests, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave last year’s Camaro a 5-star overall rating, with 4 stars in the frontal crash test and 5 stars in the side-impact and rollover tests. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tested the 2020 Camaro coupe and gave it a Good rating in all crash tests except the roof-strength test, where it earned a score of Acceptable.
2021 Chevrolet Camaro vs the competition
2021 Dodge Challenger — The big and brutish Dodge Challenger is starting to show its age compared to the Camaro, but it still boasts a handsome look and surprisingly good driving dynamics for its size. The GT trim features
all-wheel drive, while the 797-hp Hellcat Redeye handily outmuscles the ZL1.
2021 Ford Mustang — The Camaro’s longtime rival offers a little more technology and better active safety features than the Chevy in a smaller, more manageable package. It also boasts a high-performance variants.
2021 Toyota 86 – It only offers one engine – a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with 205 hp – but what the 86 lacks in power and size compared to American muscle cars it makes up for in nimbleness and high-revving fun.
Used Chevrolet Corvette — If you like the Camaro’s General Motors roots and its no-nonsense powertrain, consider going to the next level. Prices are high, though, so you may have to check out a used model.
