YONGIN, South Korea, Dec. 13 (Yonhap) -- GM Korea Co., the South Korean unit of General Motors Co., on Thursday launched the New Camaro SS in the domestic market to diversify its product lineup.

The upgraded version of the sixth-generation Chevrolet muscle car comes with a 6.2-liter V8 engine and the Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission. It has 455 horsepower on tap and 62.9 newton meters of torque, and can accelerate from zero to 100 kph in four seconds, GM Korea said in a statement.

The star of the Chevy performance lineup is priced at 54.28 million won-55 million won (US$48,000-$49,000). It is manufactured in GM's U.S. plants and shipped to South Korea, the statement said.

GM Korea's current lineup is composed of the Impala large sedan, Malibu midsize sedan, the Aveo subcompact, Spark mini car, Volt plug-in hybrid, Bolt all-electric car, Trax compact SUV, Equinox midsize SUV and Camaro sports car.

Last month, GM announced it will close five North American plants as it transitions to self-driving and electric cars to meet growing customer appetite for SUVs and crossovers over sedans.

The Detroit carmaker plans to end production of six sedans by the end of 2019. The Volt, Cruze and Impala are among the six, along with the Cadillac XTS, Cadillac CT6 and Buick LaCrosse.
