90-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder

The story of the third-generation Chevy Camaro closely follows the Fox-body Ford Mustang because their performance started bad but got much better by the end of the model run. For example, when Chevy launched the third-gen Camaro for the 1982 model year, its base engine was a 2.5-liter four-cylinder producing 90 hp and 132 lb-ft. This was a little more than the least expensive 'Stang but still didn't provide a rousing drive.
