How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Competitors for the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro fall in to several categories dictated by which Camaro you're considering.

The most obvious competitors are the Camaro's traditional nemeses: the 2010 Ford Mustang and 2009 Dodge Challenger.

We prefer the base Camaro to the base V-6 Mustang or Challenger because the Chevy's engine/transmissions are flat-out better.

However, the newest Mustang GT is plenty refined and stands out as a great value with a V-8.

The Mustang Shelby GT500 manages to eclipse even the Camaro SS's formidable punch, with 540 horses.

The Challenger R/T and SRT8 provide two different levels of V-8 power packaged around a larger five-passenger interior.

If you're looking at other coupes with V-6 engines and automatic transmissions, the Toyota Solara could be your car if you prefer a duller drive with less iconic style.

Sporty coupes like the 2009 Nissan 370Z and 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe might be up your alley if you're considering a Camaro with a V-6 and a six-speed manual.

The Camaro is unabashedly American in its styling, but the refinement of its powertrain and suspension are easily the match for these imports.

The Nissan Z has never occupied the top spot in the performance world—and it doesn't now—but it's still a great performance car that starts just under $30,000.
