The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was introduced in Detroit during a special event held in 16th May, 2015. The latest from Chevy’s stables is approximate 200 pounds lighter than the present generation model and comes with more powerful V6 and V8 engines.
It was recently caught on camera in a parking lot in Detroit. It won’t be going on sale in US until the end of this year while European countries will have to wait till spring next year. The people at CamaroNews noticed a pre-production model of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS. It has given us an enhanced look at the evolutionary design of the SS and it looks quite aggressive, thanks to its styling and robust design.
Coupled with the muscular design is a V8 6.2-liter engine churning out 455 bhp (339 kW) and 455 lb-ft (617 Nm) resulting out of a standard 6-speed manual gearbox or an optional 8-speed paddle-shift automatic.
The latest 2016 Chevrolet Camaro offers a significant lighter platform with better performance and enhanced fuel economy. The sixth generation Camaro comes with technology and refinement, crafted to preserve the sporty car segment leadership while screaming American Muscle while continuing its rich legacy.
The sixth generation Camaro offers a smooth and surgical driving experience, courtesy of light-weight architecture and a massive powertrain range. If you compare the latest generation Camaro to its predecessor, you’ll notice that only the rear bowtie emblem and the SS Badge has been carried forward to the latest Camaro.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro offers a leaner and stiffer platform and is slightly smaller. At the same time, the exterior is sculpted and quite dramatic. The exterior portion features reduced aerodynamic lift that contributes superior handling and enhanced efficiency, thanks to painstaking tuning in the wind tunnel.
We have already stated that the vehicle’s weight has been reduced by 200 pounds and this contributes immensely to overall performance. The car is much quicker to react, providing a suitable and highly responsive driving experience.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has many new features introduced in it. It has a new Drive Mode Selector with 8 new attributes designed for four modes. It has support for Snow/Ice, Sport and Tour. On the SS Models, you will experience track settings along with segment-exclusive Interior Spectrum Lighting.
The dash includes 24 different ambient lighting effects, a center console, and door panels along with high definition configurable color-displays. It further includes dual-eight inch diagonal screens for an added technological statement.
The sixth generation 2016 Chevrolet Camaro offers three different engine-variants: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Turbo, an all-new 3.6-liter V-6 and the LT1 6.2-liter V-8. As a result, the Camaro SS is more powerful than ever! Meanwhile, the latest generation Camaro will include Magnetic Ride Control. Till now it was only available on the Camaro ZL1 but the latest SS variant will use it.
According to Chevrolet, this active suspension system has the capability of analyzing the road 1000 times per second. It also has the ability of automatically adjusting the settings of the dampers. This further ensures a smooth ride.
In the meantime, both the 6.2-liter LT1 V8 and the new 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder mill will be available overseas. As a result, this All American Muscle Statement from Chevy will be more accessible and affordably priced in foreign markets.
A lot of hardcore Camaro SS fans were surprised when the 6th generation 2016 Chevrolet Camaro introduced a new 4-cylinder engine in its lineup. It was inevitable as Ford enjoyed a lot of success from their 2.3-liter EcoBoost Mustang. However, keep in mind that the latest Ford Mustang’s 4-cylinder engine is more powerful than that of the Camaro’s Turbo-4.
