2016 Chevrolet Camaro: Establishing New Performance Benchmarks
DETROIT - For the sixth time in its history, Chevrolet has introduced an all-new Camaro. Designed to maintain the segment leadership it earned over the past five years, the new Camaro offers even higher levels of performance, technology and refinement.
The Gen Six Camaro provides a faster, more nimble driving experience, enabled by an all-new, lighter architecture and a broader powertrain range. Six all-new powertrain combinations are offered, including a 2.0L turbo, an all-new 3.6L V-6 and the LT1 6.2L V-8, which is estimated at 440 horsepower (328 kW) and more than 450 lb-ft of torque (610 Nm) for the most powerful Camaro SS ever. The new engines are matched with six-speed manual transmissions and two all-new eight-speed automatic transmissions.
Camaro's leaner, stiffer platform and slightly smaller dimensions are accentuated by a dramatic, sculpted exterior. Meticulously tuned in the wind tunnel, the exterior contributes to performance through reduced aerodynamic lift, for better handling, and enhances efficiency.
A driver-focused interior integrates class-leading control technologies, including a new Drive Mode Selector, configurable instrument cluster and a customizable ambient lighting feature.
Redesigning the Camaro is thrilling and challenging all at once, but the secret is to offer something more, said Mark Reuss, GM executive vice president. For Camaro enthusiasts, it retains iconic design cues and offers even more performance. For a new generation of buyers, the 2016 Camaro incorporates our most innovative engineering ideas with finely honed performance and leading design.
