After 8 years of unfortunate hiatus, Chevrolet is coming back with a redesigned version of the Camaro. Yes, their legendary pony car is back. The development of this model is definitely pushed forward since the sixth generation of the Mustang arrived and we will soon be delighted with another excellent model which belongs to the same class. There will be many improvements inside out, as most of Chevy’s customers expected and wished for. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be a modern, muscle car which is finally ready to offer more than just straight-line speed. It offers the kind of braking and handling once offered in top-notch European sedans and sports coupes. Of course, the newcomer will boast distinctive American styling and venerable V8 engine under its refined skin.
2016 Chevrolet Camaro Engine
The base engine for the upcoming 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder unit. This engine goes against the standard formula of muscle-car which claims that more cylinders are better. The engine is capable of producing 275 ponies and 295 lb-ft of torque. Details about EPA haven’t been announced yet. The upgrade from this engine will be a 3.6-liter V6 engine with improved fuel injection and cylinder deactivation for improved fuel economy. The engine cranks out 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque.
Unfortunately, details about fuel economy are yet to be announced, but we must admit that we expect significant improvement. The real news is the mighty 6.2-liter V8 pumping out 455 ponies and 455 lb-ft of torque. As for the transmissions, there will be the standard 6-speed manual unit with automatic rev models on models powered by the V8 engine and an 8-speed automatic unit with paddle shifters. Even though details about fuel economy haven’t been announced, we assume that the new Camaro will be environmental-friendly because of many improvements and lighter body.
Chevrolet Camaro 2016 Interior
The cabin of the new Camaro is abounded by clever touches. Its cabin is not only comfortable and luxurious, it is also functional. The vehicle benefits from a new climate control with trim rings which control temperature and fan speed. The overall design of the cabin is much better thanks to new, better-quality materials. The cabin of the newcomer still lags behind the Dodge Challenger and the Ford Mustang, but it is still a nice and comfy place.
It has comfortable and supporting seats. There are also big gauges, pretty easy to be read. Also new will be a touchscreen infotainment display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The list of standard features includes dual USB ports, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth connectivity, automatic climate control, cruise control, etc.
2016 Chevy Camaro Exterior
When we first set out eyes on the 2016 Camaro, we concluded that it looks a little bit oversized. It boasts tidy and clean lines and generally looks good and attractive. As far as the exterior changes of the Camaro are concerned, we will say that the vehicle comes with an updated look of the previous generation.
Therefore, changes are rather evolutionary than revolutionary. The front fascia of the car is decorated with impossibly thin headlights, giving the car aggressive and sharp look. of course, there is the recognizable low-slung roof and aggressively wide fenders.
