Even though the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was unveiled a few months back, the vehicle will not be available at dealerships across the country for a few more years. However, like most new vehicles that are expected to launch, the ordering guide has mysteriously surfaced online and has created quite a ruckus on the internet.
If you’re interested in putting your money on GM’s new muscle car, you need to know the technical specifications and associated details before hand. Even though the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has been entirely redesigned from the ground up, the trim level choices remain.
The vehicle will feature SS and LT trim options, available in four models, namely 1SS, 2SS, 1LT, and 2LT. The primary difference between the SS and LT variants will be the engine setup. However, unlike the previous generation LT, which featured a 3.6-liter V6 engine block, the upcoming variant is powered by a four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine as standard.
This turbocharged engine block displaces close to 275 BHP along with 295 ft-lb of torque. GM has however included the 3.6-liter LT in the deal as an option. Hence, you could opt for the new-age 335 BHP and 284 ft-lb of torque displacing 3.6-liter engine block, if your heart desires!
The SS however retains the 6.2-liter V8 engine block, displacing 455 BHP and 455 ft-lb of torque. Both trim levels have their own standard equipment range. While the 1SS and 1LT feature the basic equipments, the 2SS and 2LT come with the premium range of equipments.
GM currently offers a range of seven standard color schemes for the customers to choose from, and the list includes Red Hot Metallic, Blue Velvet Metallic, Hyper Blue Metallic, Summit Black, Summit White, Silver Ice Metallic and Nightfall Gray Metallic. If you’re willing to shell out an extra buck, you could choose from the three special edition color schemes, namely Garnet Red Tintcoat, Bright Yellow and Mosaic Black Metallic.
Customers can further pick from a range of five upholstery combinations including Medium Ash Gray, Jet Black, Ceramic White, Adrenaline Red and Kalahari, depending on the exterior color combination, as Kalahari cannot be picked with the Bright Yellow paint job while Ceramic White and Adrenaline Red are not available with certain trim packages.
The standard features on the 1LT include 18-inch aluminum rims, LED DRL, a six-speaker audio device and a 7-inch touch screen with MyLink infotainment. Optional equipments include a Bose nine-speaker audio device, an 8-inch touch screen, limited slip differential and an electrically operated sunroof.
The 2LT features all the standard equipments available with the 1LT, along with certain additional equipments such as illuminated visors, head-up display, Spectrum lighting, digital instrument cluster, heated steering wheel, a range of driving aids and illuminated sill plates.
2LT users can opt for the RS Package, which includes LED tail lamps, HID head lamps, the RS grille, 20-inch machined aluminum rims and a trunk lid spoiler. The 1SS gets a rear spoiler, 20-inch rims with Brembo calipers, HID headlamps, a performance suspension, limited-slip differential and a digital instrument cluster.
Options expand to a two-tone paint scheme rally stripes, Magnetic Ride Control, and two-tone premium wheels. The 2SS features everything present on the 1SS, along with an upgraded interior trim, aluminum accents on the shifter cap and door trim, Spectrum lighting, head-up display, lane change alert, rear parking assist, side blind zone alert and rear cross-traffic alert.
