2016 Chevrolet Camaro Specs And Release Date

2016 Chevrolet Camaro Specs And Release Date

The sixth-generation 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Specs officially unveils at the Camaro museum at the Belles Isle of Richmond, Virginia. Unfortunately, the live stream of the press event will not be available online, but a couple of important details regarding the 2016 Camaro have already been revealed. Without further ado, here’s what we know about the upcoming sixth-gen Camaro.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro Specs

Here’s some of the more interesting Specs we heard :

  • The 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder is the first turbocharged engine in a Camaro.
  • The LT1 borrowed from the Corvette Stingray marks the third time a Camaro has used an engine with that badge. It was previously used in 1970-72 (Z/28), 1993-97 (Z/28), and 1996-97 (SS).
  • The Camaro was revealed in a tent before nearly 1,000 enthusiasts, General Motors executives (including CEO Mary Barra) and mere feet from the Grand Prix course where IndyCars will run in two weeks.
  • Chevy hopes to continue to attract new customers with the Camaro and said 63 percent of the fifth-generation buyers were new to the brand.
  • GM product boss Mark Reuss neatly summed up the Camaro’s handling character. “It’s wicked fast and extremely nimble.”
  • Reuss on the design goal: make it “look like a car for tomorrow instead of a car from yesterday.”
  • Reuss’ first car was a 1967 Camaro, and he’s reiterated his passion for the car. “People want to be seen in a Camaro, and that never goes away.”
  •  Chevy North America president Alan Batey said he plans to line up a red Camaro as soon as the order bank opens. We assume he’ll have early access to that.
  • Though the appearance is similar, the sixth generation of the Camaro appears a little sleeker and is more aerodynamic thanks to 350 hours in the wind tunnel. Only two parts, the SS badge and the rear bow-tie emblem, are carryover.
  • Al Oppenheiser, the Camaro’s chief engineer, said most of the options (except Magnetic Ride Control, which is SS exclusive), will be offered on the inline four. The engine will be capable of propelling the Camaro to a sprint to 60 miles per hour in well under six seconds. “We don’t want to … make it feel like an excuse car,” he said.
  • Without revealing specifics, Oppenheiser said every Camaro variant will be faster than the model it replaces.
  • The interior is vastly improved. We got an up-close look in the cabin of one of the cars revealed with a red and white layout, and the materials are much better. The setting is more colorful, and 24 different ambient lighting shades are available.

The 2016 Camaro will offer customers a variety of engine choices that range from all-out V8 muscle to a much more conservative 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder inline-4. Actually, don’t for a second assume the four-banger is a shrimp. The little engine that could produces a respectable 275 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque.

The second engine offering is a 3.6 liter V6 producing 335 hp and 284 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine serves double duty for the upcoming Cadillac CT6 as well.

Finally, the third engine is the proper 6.2 liter V8 that boasts 455 hp and 455 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine will be found in the range-topping 2016 Camaro SS, which will also feature magnetic ride control.

Beyond the engine options, the new 2016 Camaro will sport a new exterior styling as a whole. While the overall Camaro design will be very similar, the new 2016 model will feature a slimmer body for a more athletic appearance. Overall, the Camaro will be more aerodynamically efficient and even some 200 lbs. lighter than the previous generation.

“The Camaro went to the gym and came out with a lithe, more athletic physique for the sixth generation,” GM designer Ed Welburn said. “It’s a more expressive evolution of the Camaro’s iconic character – and one that complements its leaner size and sharper reflexes.”

Inside, the 2016 Camaro will offer more cabin refinement. A dual 8-inch display will cominate the center console. Climate control buttons will be replaced by control rings around the air vents. Wireless phone charging is also in. Finally, a selection of driving modes also cater to the driver.
