The 2014 Camaro was one of the final model years in the Chevrolet model’s fifth generation. Better yet, with available V8 power and manual transmissions, the Camaro 1SS of the time has the potential to be a used muscle car fun factory. So, is the 2014 Chevy Camaro a worthwhile pursuit or an easily forgotten footnote? 

Is a 2014 Camaro a V6?

The base-model 2014 Chevrolet Camaro has a 323-horsepower 3.6L V6. Don’t let the lack of two cylinders spoil the Camaro’s appeal; the V6 is more efficient and cheaper than the model’s larger engines. Moreover, manual transmission fans could still get a three-pedal setup with the V6. 

However, if a V8 is a must in your Mustang fighter, the 2014 had plenty of options. Higher trims packed three different V8s, from a naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 in the 1SS to a monstrous, delightfully old-school 7.0L V8 in the Z/28.  

Is the 2014 Camaro LS a V8?

As confusing as it might be, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro LS packs a 3.6L V6 instead of the 6.2L LS3, as the name might suggest. Still, at 323 horsepower, the Camaro’s V6 is more potent than the S197 Ford Mustang’s 305-horsepower 3.7L V6.

Of course, muscle car fanatics will seek the V8s in the higher trims, starting with the Camaro 1SS.

Are Camaros reliable after 100k miles?

The fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is reliable to 100,000 miles and beyond. However, the models aren’t without their problems. For instance, CarComplaints reports that the 2014 Camaro has 92 NHTSA complaints pertaining to electrical issues like ignition failures.  

How much is a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro?

A 2014 Chevrolet Camaro with average mileage has a fair value of $12,845 for the 1LS up to $33,968 for the historically-named Z/28. 

TrimAverage fair purchase value
LS trims$12,845
LT trims$14,020
SS trims$18,984

According to Kelley Blue Book, the Z/28 is the priciest option in the lineup, demanding an average of $5,094 more than the track-happy ZL1 Coupe. Of course, prices are contingent on mileage, condition, and location. Furthermore, car hunters can expect the LS, LT, and SS Convertibles to be a bit pricier than their hardtop counterparts. 

Is the 2014 Chevy Camaro a good car?

The 2014 Chevy Camaro might have something for everyone, from sun-soaked V6 cruisers with convertible tops to rigid, track-stomping Z/28s. Moreover, the Camaro’s horsepower outputs allow it to go toe-to-toe with the Ford Mustangs of the day, save for the stratospherically powerful Shelby GT500.
