Iconic to its core
The Chevrolet Camaro is more than just an American muscle car. It has helped shape the automotive industry in the US, inspired generations of performance car enthusiasts, and even influenced pop culture – making the Camaro a highly coveted vehicle to this very day.
Born out of competition, the Camaro was designed to be a leader in the personal coupe market. Since Chevrolet sold the first Camaro in 1967, more than 5 million units of the vehicle have conquered open and city roads in various parts of the world. In a span of more than 50 years and six generations, the Camaro has won various accolades including Motor Trend’s 2014 Best Driver’s Car award – making the vehicle the first American-brand car to receive it.
Today, the Camaro continues to dominate the road with its thrilling driving dynamics and fierce sporty design.
Heart of a sports car
The latest Camaro RS offering from Chevrolet Philippines is powered by a 2.0L DOHC VVT direct injection turbo engine that delivers 275 horsepower and 398 Nm of torque.

Iconic comes in many forms
Chevrolet is a brand built on innovation, ingenuity, and leadership. Since its founding in 1911, the bowtie brand has introduced iconic vehicles that paved the way for modern lifestyle and performance cars that conquer roads in more than 100 countries worldwide.
In the Philippines, the Chevrolet Camaro joins the bowtie brand’s league of lifestyle and performance vehicles: The Chevrolet Corvette, Chevrolet Trailblazer, Chevrolet Colorado, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Trax, Chevrolet Spark, Chevrolet Sail, and Chevrolet Malibu.
Icons at the MIAS
The world’s fastest-growing vehicle segment is the sports utility vehicle (SUV) and it was born wearing a bowtie. In 1935, Chevrolet introduced the Suburban Caryall, an eight-passenger vehicle built on a half-ton commercial truck chassis. Today, the Chevrolet Trailblazer takes decades of Chevrolet SUV expertise and applies it to a tough yet refined SUV package perfect for modern customers.
Alongside Chevrolet’s leadership in the SUV segment is the brand’s more than 100 years of building strong, dependable, and legendary trucks. This truck heritage DNA runs through every piece of metal of the Chevrolet Colorado. And with the power and durability of our latest pickup truck – the Chevrolet Colorado High Country Storm – we offer the market a seriously capable truck that you can have fun with.
The Corvette is the world’s longest running continuously produced sports car and the best-selling sports car in America, commanding a third of the segment. Corvette’s legacy was forged in 1953 when it was introduced at the General Motors Motorama show in New York City. The Corvette Stingray Coupe is the latest iteration of the award-winning seventh generation of the legendary car. Each has been defined by all-new or significantly revised design, architecture and technology features – including powertrain and chassis/suspension technologies – that have helped Corvette maintain its position as the best-selling premium sports car in America.
