If you’re looking for the new Chevy Camaro near Tampa, then you need to head over to Cox Chevrolet! Located in nearby Bradenton, we’ve got an extensive selection of new and pre-owned vehicles, though we’re particularly enamored with the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro. This is one of most beloved sports cars of our time, and it provides plenty of power, great handling, and a distinctive style. That being said, there are other sports cars on the scene, and it’s instructive to compare the Camaro with one of its biggest competitors. Let’s take a look at the 2012 Dodge Challenger.

The Camaro is a Top Sports Car

Chevrolet’s flashy sports car has gained plenty of fans around Tampa, but so has Dodge’s entry. It’s fair to say that the 2012 Dodge Challenger is good vehicle, but the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro comes out on top in a number of key ways. Here are just a few:

  • Let’s look at the price: the base model of the Camaro will cost you $23,280, while the base model of the Challenger costs $25,195
  • Of course, you want power when you shop for a sports car, and even the base engine of the 2012 Camaro provides a 3.6L V6 engine that’s capable of 323 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque, while the Challenger’s engine comes up short with a 3.6L V6 that produces 305 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque.
  • While both vehicles achieve 17 mpg city, the Camaro also gets 28 mpg highway, while the Challenger manages 25 mpg highway — this is a small difference that will add up in a big way over time.
  • While the warranties on these models are quite similar, Chevrolet comes out ahead by providing 5 years/100,000 miles of roadside assistance coverage — Dodge only provides 3 years/36,000 miles of such coverage.
