The Camaro is making an appearance "Down Under," and it won't be cheap


Spurred on by Ford's success in the Land Down Under with the release of the Mustang, Chevrolet has announced that it will expand its Australian selection beyond the typical Holden brand.

Holden Special Vehicles managing director Tim Jackson said that the Mustang's excellent performance in Australia was a motivating factor in the expansion, admitting that it "shows there's space for another competitor in that space."

The Camaro may be making the trip down under, but it won't be cheap. The car will be debuting at around $80,000 AUD (roughly $60,256 USD). Compare that to the $57,490 AUD starting point for the Mustang, and the Camaro is clearly carrying a heavy price. And the type of Camaro available will also be limited to only the 2SS trim version of the V8 coupe.

It'll be interesting to see how Chevrolet stacks up against Ford now that both brands are claiming residence in Australia.
