Chevrolet Camaro SS Rent in Dubai
The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro SS Rent in Dubai coupe and convertible are about the pure and simple joy of driving. Forget about their compromised outward visibility and cramped rear seats. Instead, embrace their lithe handling, satisfying stick-shift transmission, and remarkably smooth ride. A 275-hp turbo four is the default engine, but opting for the 335-hp V-6 or the 455-hp V-8 unlocks more melodic soundtracks and punchier acceleration. Its cabin includes some unattractive materials, and some will call it claustrophobic, but its front seats are comfy and supportive, and its well-stocked infotainment system is easy to use. The Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger are better as daily drivers, but with the optional 1LE package, Chevy’s pony car transforms into the best track car of the three. When it comes to performance for the price, it’s hard to find a better value than the 2022 Camaro.
For 2022, Chevy doesn’t make any significant changes to the Camaro lineup. All the ingredients are still the same: coupe and convertible body styles, three engines, two transmissions, and poor outward visibility.
In our humble opinion, the best way to experience any new Chevrolet Camaro SS Rent in Dubai is with the optional 1LE Track Performance package. It adds distinct appearance pieces such as black-painted 20-inch wheels and satin-black exterior accents as well as unique interior bits that include microsuede trim and more supportive Recaro front seats (SS models only). However, the most important upgrades are the ones that affect performance. Every 1LE has a dual-mode exhaust system, enhanced powertrain-cooling components, more powerful brakes, a limited-slip differential, and special suspension tuning. While we love that even models with the four-cylinder and V-6 engines offer the 1LE package, we’d choose to pair it with the 1SS trim that only comes with the hearty V-8. That decision would coincide with picking the standard manual transmission, of course.
The base 275-hp four-cylinder isn’t slow—we tested a manual model that proved surprisingly quick. But uneven throttle responses and unpleasant, unsporting sounds accompanied its dull demeanor. On the other hand, upgrading to the 335-hp V-6 completely changes the car’s character. The gutsy six has its own distinctly searing soundtrack. The Camaro LT1 and SS feature Chevy’s iconic small-block V-8, with 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. Its tremendous low-end torque, linear power delivery, and chest-compressing acceleration are enhanced by the optional dual-mode exhaust, which erupts with a sharp bark at startup and thunderous sounds during wide-open-throttle blasts. The standard six-speed manual transmission maintains the enthusiast’s spirit. (For cars not equipped with the 1LE package, the six-speed manual transmission is standard.) An eight-speed automatic is optional with the four-cylinder engine, and the 10-speed automatic can be paired with the V-6 and V-8. The Camaro’s astonishing chassis provides a car-and-driver connection (see what we did there?) that’s unparalleled among pony cars. Its solid structure engenders precise handling and a quality feel. Its well-balanced ride is firm enough to be agile on curvy roads yet still compliant on rough surfaces. Paired with the 1LE setup, the coupes transcend their class—competing with cars costing much, much more. The 1LEs-equipped models are taut on the track yet relaxed on regular roads. Their electrically assisted power-steering systems have reasonable efforts and highly accurate responses. The hot Chevy completes the performance trifecta with excellent brakes; the brake pedal consistently provides progressive and assuring responses. The 1LE models get even more powerful, track-ready Brembo brakes.
The 2022 Camaro with the turbocharged four-cylinder engine is rated at up to 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The V-6 and V-8 powertrains are less frugal, with the six topping out at 18 mpg city and 29 highway and the eight topping out at 16 mpg city and 26 highway. Still, the latter engines performed well on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen. We’ve tested each of the Camaro’s three available engines—paired with the manual transmission—and they were all within 1 mpg (plus or minus) of their government highway ratings.

The Camaro interior is an improvement versus the previous generation, with better materials and a more modern look. Its comfortable front seats and straightforward layout are high points, but its torturously small back seat and compromised visibility inhibit livability. An optional head-up display is useful and not offered the Dodge Challenger or Ford Mustang. The Camaro also can be equipped with customizable ambient interior lighting, which adds a cool appearance. The Chevy outshines its rivals on the track and in the fun-to-drive department, but its back seat is basically unusable for adults. The Camaro is also outmatched in terms of cargo space and interior storage. It held the least amount of carry-on luggage compared to its space-stingy rivals and has a laughably small trunk opening.
Every Camaro has a user-friendly touchscreen that supports Chevy’s Infotainment 3 software. While the larger 8.0-inch touchscreen fills the space better, the plastic bezel looks chintzy, and its downward angle is awkward. Otherwise, its mix of controls and organized menus is appreciated. Chevy’s setup has everything standard—intuitive controls, attractive menus, responsive feedback, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that can be accessed without plugging a smartphone into a USB port.
Although the Chevy pony car also has less driver-assistance technology than its rivals, it’s available with several pieces of safety equipment. For more information about the Camaro’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:
- Available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
- Available forward-collision warning
- Available rear parking sensors
