2017 Chevy Camaro vs. 2017 Nissan 370Z
The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro and the 2017 Nissan 370Z are both head-turning sports cars, with serious performance credentials. Either one might be attractive to drivers in the Chicagoland area, but they’re not equals. Take a closer look at the details if you’re planning to get behind the wheel of a new sports coupe this year in Calumet City. You might be surprised by just how different these models really are.
Power and Performance
There’s a major difference between these two cars. The Nissan 370Z is offered with a single 3.7L V6 engine, while the Camaro can be had with a four separate engines that deliver better fuel economy, and better power and acceleration, or both, depending on which one you choose. Take a look at the specs offered by these two models:
- Nissan 370Z: The 3.7L V6 in the Nissan makes 332 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. This engine is capable of up to 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway based on EPA estimates. Car and Driver estimates that the 370Z will go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds.
- Chevy Camaro: The Camaro offers a 275 hp 2.0L turbocharged four, a 3.6L V6 that makes 320 hp, a 455 hp 6.2L V8, or a supercharged 6.2L V8 that delivers a breathtaking 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. The supercharged V8 equipped ZL1 will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.5 seconds, while the SS with naturally aspirated V8 will do the same in 4.0 seconds. The most efficient version delivers 22 mpg city/31 mpg highway.
It’s not hard to see that the Nissan simply can’t compete with the Camaro.
Comfort and Convenience
The Camaro also offers some advantages when it comes to comfort and convenience. It delivers more front legroom, and more front head room than the Nissan 370Z. The Camaro also has more trunk space with 9.1 cubic feet compared to 6.9 cubic feet in the 370Z. It’s also important to note that the Nissan 370Z is a two-passenger sports car, while the Camaro has a second row of seats, so you can bring your friends or family along for the ride.
