3. Chevrolet Camaro SS - 4.3 seconds
The popular Chevrolet Camaro SS is third on the list, though its 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds is actually tied with our next car. The Camaro 1SS can be had from $35,045 while those looking for more goodies can choose the 2SS trim, which starts at $38,845. Under the hood is a 6.2-liter V8 engine with 426 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque while getting a modest 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. Of course there’s the more powerful ZL1 with 580 hp, but that’s well above our $50,000 price range.
