Santa’s sleigh proved itself a tough competitor. Breaking down the key features of each vehicle, the chart reveals the features where the Camaro inches ahead and other details where Santa leaves the Chevy trailing behind.

 

The Camaro shines on these features and specs:

  • Fuel economy – The Camaro has an impressive 20mpg/combined compared to sleigh’s 1-2 cookie per house requirement. This means Santa may require hundreds of calories to cruise less than a block.
  • Transmission – The 2018 ZL1 LE1 comes only with a six-speed manual, offering the shifting, heel-toe control and maneuverability Camaro drivers want. Shifting the sleigh is done through a chorus of grunts and whistles, hoping the reindeer follow instructions.
  • Horsepower – Delivering 275 horses @ 5500 rpm would seem like it would trump the power of a mere 9 reindeer (including Rudolph).

Santa’s sleigh showcases its magic on these features and specs:

  • Suspension – The new ZL1 LE1 sports a premier suspension setup, including Multimatic aluminum-bodied spool-valve dampers. Sure, the Camaro has superb grip and handling. Maybe that feels like rolling on air, but the sleigh actually uses air for its suspension.
  • Cargo space – You could get a few gifts into the Camaro’s 9.1 cubic feet of cargo space, but Santa’s sleigh has infinite cargo space. There’s nothing you couldn’t carry in there.
  • 0-60 – This is where the sleigh tops it all. Despite being addled with a huge curb weight, Santa’s rig goes 0 to 60 in an estimated 1/32 of a millisecond. This makes the ZL1 LE1’s 3.5 seconds seem much less impressive than it does at first glance.
