New Chevy Camaro Z/28 Makes History as 2014 Best Driver’s Car
For the last seven years, Motor Trend has been doling out an annual “Best Driver’s Car” award. It’s a title that bestows a special amount of prestige on its recipient, marking a single car as the best in the competitive performance market. This year, it’s also a title that belongs to the new Chevy Camaro Z/28, the first American-made car to ever win the award.
Of course, the Camaro has always been a fan favorite, but this new Z/28 version certainly takes it to the next level, and the “Best Driver’s Car” award confirms that. “The mission for the new Z/28 was to create the most capable, best-handling Camaro in our history,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors’ executive vice president, Global Product Development. “As such, I can’t think of a better validation of that mission than for the Z/28 to be named Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car.”
Motor Trend put the new Chevy Camaro Z/28—and the rest of its inferior competitors—through an intense series of performance tests, including laps at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and high-speed sprints up and down a hill on a highway. At the end of the test period, the Motor Trend editors basically said, “Wow. This is quite a car.” Here at Carter Chevrolet, we think you’ll be saying the same thing when you come in to check out the Camaro for yourself.
