2022 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS: Start Up, Exhaust, Test Drive, POV and Review

  • by

👋 In todays review we check out this 2022 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS! This is the newest generation of the Chevy Camaro and is a nice daily drivable two door sportscar! The Chevrolet Camaro with the 1SS is an awesome trim level that isn’t overboard on price or options, but gives you everything you want! The 2022 Camaro looks great and has an aggressive front end design. It really is a car you need to see in person to appreciate. The rear end is very bold and has a modern look especially with the three dimensional tail lights. I also like how the 2022 tail lights are not red, the clear lens looks great! Seriously, the front bumper is so sick! The V8 models have a different design than the V6 and turbo 4. All look so good in person. The Satin Steel Metallic exterior paint looked awesome and really shows off the brand new 2022 design! Overall I think the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro is a nice car with a lot to offer. It was comfortable, roomy, powerful and looks great! You aren’t buying this sportscar to use the back seats often, but they are functional when needed! The interior of the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro was well laid out with minimal buttons with a clean look and feel. Test driving the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS, the car drove great and has plenty of power. The 2022 V8 Camaro had an amazing exhaust sound and sounded great going through the gears. The 10 speed automatic transmission was pretty responsive and a lot of fun to use and didn’t feel like an overboard of gears! The car still allowed me to use the gears and have some fun for what I could do and if you are a three pedal kind of person, a six speed manual is also available for added fun in the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS.

Hey everyone and welcome back to the channel so today i’m down at carolina auto direct we’re going to take a look at their 2022 chevrolet camaro 1ss so huge shout out to them for providing this muscle car for me today make sure you guys check out their website they have a ton of awesome pretty much brand new inventory so definitely check them out but the camaro

That you see behind me is finished off in satin steel metallic with a list price just over 51 000. to start off today’s review let’s look at what powers this camaro underneath the hood is a 6.2 liter naturally aspirated v8 engine paired to the 10-speed automatic transmission it pumps out 455 horsepower around 6000 rpm and 455 pound-feet of torque around 4 400

Rpm that power sent to the rear wheels this weighs in right around 3 600 pounds it’ll do 0-60 in 3.9 seconds up to its top speed of 165 miles an hour and it has a fuel capacity of 19 gallons you’ll expect the fuel economy to be 16 miles per gallon in the city and 24 out on the highway this has a wheelbase of 110.7 inches its overall length is 188.3 it has a width

Of 74.7 and a height of 53.1 inches as we move on to the exterior styling now for the chevrolet camaro let’s start off with the grilles because this has two of them there’s one in the upper section that’s very narrow and wide and a larger one down below plenty of cutouts provide a lot of cooling to this engine and it’s really nice how the upper grille is pretty

Much sunken in matches nicely with the headlights on both sides you can see there’s a little bit of a lip on the bumper just to give it that sunken in design and this also has led headlights drls and turn signals now the turn signal has a really unique design that strip actually protrudes its way into the grille and there’s even another section to the inside of

The headlight and then the drl is down in the middle section of the bumper so it’s nice how that’s split up a lot of cool contoured lines running around that section too leading on to more of the cutouts down in the lower section and this does have a two-tone design with some of the black trim that you see against this exterior color just to tie it in nicely and

This even has functional air inlets on both sides just underneath the drls to provide even more aerodynamics and then up top on the hood this even has functional heat extraction vents so you can get a look from the underside to be able to see straight through them and then there’s really nice lines running down both sides of that leading to the top section just

Above the chevy bow tie right in the middle to give it that classic camaro design and as we move on to the side this has a really nice set of 20 inch wheels they’re eight and a half inches up front and nine and a half inches wide in the rear really nice five-spoke design with the brushed finish and this even has four piston brembo brakes in all four corners you’ll

Notice the camaro logo just behind that with the three different colors we have the body colored side mirrors this model even has a sunroof up top all the window trim is blacked out there’s really nice lines running down the side profile you can see the indentions down in the lower section as well as a line running right through the middle just underneath that door

Handle and then behind the door handle it splits off to this massive rear fender leaning its way all the way to the rear really nice coupe like design for this camaro and then in the back is the trunk mounted spoiler which is body colored of course this has a backup camera it also has the 3d dimensional design to these tail lights which are led of course gives it

A unique look in the lower diffuser there’s some nice trim pieces as well as the quad tip dual exhaust ss is also over on that right side and with the exterior wrapped up let’s move on to the rear cargo now you can use the button on the key fob or the button up underneath really convenient to have that especially for a sports car like this and the one drawback is

The opening is slightly narrow compared to other competitors but there’s still a lot of space and with the back seats folded down that really opens it up there’s really no overhangs to give you a lot more interior storage if you need it and then the trunk lid is very lightweight so that makes it easy to close and before we work our way to the inside this does

Have remote start so on the key fob if i lock it and then hold on this button right in the middle this will start right up and we can hear that v8 come to life we’ll get some exhaust revs in just a little bit you can shut it off from the key fob if needed i’m gonna go ahead and unlock it but obviously you can lock and unlock it from this door handle and then on

The door panel it’s covered in black leather with some gray stitching matches nicely with this trim piece running around all the window controls as well as the side mirror adjustments lock and unlock and the release handle are up top and then there’s a little bit of storage space in the back section of the door as well as the trunk release very conveniently placed

Camaro is also spelled down on the door sill and now let’s work our way to the back seats there’s a tab on the top section of this backrest and i already went ahead and moved this power seat forward just to give me a little bit more leg room but at 5 foot 10 i can work my way into these back seats and you’re not buying this vehicle for a full four seater but as you

Can tell with the front seat set at my height my knees are just up against the seat and obviously my head is up against the headliner if i had to be back here around town it’s definitely doable so it’s functional for adults or you can use it for kids for extra storage space if needed there’s a little bit of storage right in the middle you can place any smaller

Items and then the back seats do fold down like i mentioned earlier so this is one solid piece you can fold it flat so you can get this perspective at the amount of interior storage that you do have and we’ll move on to these cloth seats they have a great two-tone design with all the stitching running down them of course all those adjustments are down on the side

To move them and then to work my way into these front seats it is a low car so it’s easy to enter and exit the door opens really wide too so that makes it much more easy as well and then moving on to the steering wheel it’s covered in perforated and solid leather with more of that stitching flat bottom design to it with the ss badge but let’s fire this v8 back up

With my foot on the brake that bun’s over on the right side let’s bring this back to life and coming back to the gauge cluster on the left side is the tac on the right side is the miles per hour there’s fixed information running across the top like fuel and battery voltage and a few other vitals as well as the compass and then below that is an lcd screen you can

Use these controls over on the right side to go through a lot more information currently it’s showing miles per hour if i scroll down there’s some trip information as well as your average fuel economy and speed so you can monitor all that as well as your range until empty and there’s a few other vitals that you can easily monitor like your oil your tpms there’s

Even a timer as well if i scroll over once to the left now you can pull up all this information to go through go into the performance section here where you can look at a lot more vitals so if you’re driving this on the track back roads things like that you can quickly monitor all that information you can also pull up the audio and navigation when you have that

Running your phone when that is paired and you can go into some options here go into the launch control other units just to set this up the way that you’d like to so it’s not too configurable but there’s plenty of information to see front and center and i really like the design for this tack just like the headlights and the grille it’s sunken in giving it a really

Cool design especially with this trim piece also over on the right side is bluetooth and voice commands as well as volume on the left side is favorites and cruise control and this even has steering wheel mounted paddle shifters which are finished off in black and then over on the left side there’s some adjustments for the gauges as well as one air vent and then

Working our way back to the eight inch touchscreen system there’s a lot of info to go through on the bottom are all presets so we have a shortcut to home as well as music phone navigation and the climates and with it on the home screen right now you can see all these icons like audio settings even apple carplay and android auto if i swipe over to the split screen

You can look at your music as well as your phone when that is paired and then one last screen here has climates as well as spotify my chevrolet so you can go through all these apps just depending on what you need to use and there’s even a few physical buttons below that you have a shortcut to that home and back as well as power and volume and tuning right in the

Middle and i like how the screen has a bit of an angle to it so even on a bright day like today it will hide the screen from the sun so that way there is no glare the low roof line also helps with that so it’s a really nice touch and then working our way below that are all the physical buttons for the climate so if you don’t want to use them in that upper screen

They’re nicely laid out with where you’d like the air to go on off right in the middle front and rear defrosters of course ac and then what’s really cool is both of these air vents are multifunctional the one on the left will adjust the temperature and there’s a small screen there that will show you the temperature as well as the upper screen on the right side is

The fan speed it will also show you that level over on that right screen really nice to see those incorporated into the actual ac vent you can turn them on and off just by twisting this dial the hazards are just underneath that and then moving on to the shifter the release is in the front if i put it into reverse the backup camera will appear with the guidelines

You can turn those on and off just depending on if you’d like to see them and then putting it all the way back into drive and popping it over into the manual setting allows you to shift using this or the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters it’s also finished off in perforated leather with camaro on the upper section and some brushed aluminum just behind that

Is traction control as well as the different driving modes so just by using that toggle you can go between touring sport track snow and ice so again just depending on how you like to drive this you can quickly set that up there’s the electronic parking brake along with a 12 volt two cupholders are right next to the center armrest and when you open this up there’s

A good amount of space including two usbs and an auxiliary so you can charge electronics in there or run the cables out either way and then over on the passenger side is plenty of room for all the information that needs to go into that glove box and we’ll take one last look at these seats they have a great design for being cloth there’s even more leather on the

Airbag cover there and like i mentioned earlier we have the sunroof with the manual adjusting sunshade those controls to open it up are up top as well as the dome lights on both sides and all the onstar and emergency controls all right so getting behind the wheel of this 2022 a chevrolet camaro let’s go ahead and start off with the performance let’s put it into

The manual setting downshift a couple gears and just a mild acceleration this sounds really good surprisingly the paddles are pretty responsive and this definitely handles well for the speeds i’m going today now my initial impressions of these paddles they are pretty thin i wasn’t sure how they were going to feel but i like them if you want to use them in your

Automatic you have the option to do that and they seem very responsive like i mentioned now you can also opt for a six-speed manual so if you’re a three pedal kind of person you can get the manual if that’s not your thing you can get the automatic you can still have fun with it just depending on your driving preference but this is a really cool vehicle i love

Driving camaros because they offer a lot there are so many different trim levels that you can get with the camaro just based on your budget this is definitely a cool muscle car of the options that are available and then the next thing that i want to talk about is visibility real quick i love being behind the wheel because like i mentioned earlier the roof line is

Very low i can see all these bulges in the hood and then combined with the bulges on the top of this gauge cluster it really gives you that sports car feel from the driver’s seat and then a glance over my right shoulder with visibility going back to that pillar in the back yes it’s bulky but you can see around it i can use my side mirror there i can look out of

That window look out of the back window too i can see over my left shoulder even look out of that window in the back and the reason that i mentioned this again is because we do a lot of camaro reviews and a lot of people tell us that the visibility is poor yes it’s a sports car it has bulky pillars the visibility is not like a pickup truck where it’s windows all

Around but it is easy to see around once you learn the car start driving it a little bit more as i mentioned i have an r8 with visibility worse than this so to me this isn’t bad at all you get used to it the more you drive it and then just as far as being in the one ss we have a really nice interior there is some plastic it’s on the dash here but it has a great

Look to it with some of the leather that kind of ties in with that plastic to give it more of a nicer interior we have the trim pieces that surround the doors really nice cloth seats too so we have to give it another acceleration to hear that v8 and just half throttle we’re up to speed this would definitely be fun to rip on it more in the mountains back roads even

Doing some track driving use the launch control it’s a great sports car option for sure i love all the tech that we have and now switching over to the pov angle even just a mild acceleration up to speed it’s quick paddles are responsive like i mentioned and you can get a look from this angle how this interior is especially with these notches the bulges in the

Hood gives it a really nice sports car feel and we are up into 10th gear they are cruising for having 10 gears it doesn’t really feel like it has 10 gears the car seems to allow you to ring out a gear now i only went to around 4000 rpm since this is not my car i’m not going to redline it however with that being said i you can still utilize every gear so while

There’s 10 it doesn’t feel like an overkill of gears and up into a 10th gear at the moment we’re cruising around 60 miles an hour at around 300 rpm so it’s going to keep the rpm low just to help you save on mpg so it’s nice to see that for a sports car you still have some technology features like that with all the overdrive gears and then when you’re ready you can

Drop it down several gears and have some fun with it and we’ll do one last acceleration for today’s video just in normal automatic mode shifts great and those pop sound really good too but that’s going to wrap it up for my walk around review and test drive getting behind the wheel of this 2022 chevrolet camaro 1 ss once again huge shout out to carolina autodirect
