2016 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe Will be Fast & Furious

Ken Chester Jr.

Chevrolet recently unveiled the sixth-generation Camaro, offering drivers a higher level of performance, technology and refinement that is designed to maintain the sporty car segment leadership earned over the past five years. The Gen Six Camaro provides a faster, more nimble driving experience, enabled by an all-new, lighter architecture and a much broader powertrain range. Only two parts carry over from the fifth-generation Camaro to the new Gen Six: the rear bowtie emblem and the SS badge.

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 while enhancing efficiency. To make it not only the best Camaro ever, but one of the best performance cars available, Chevrolet focused on three pillars of development:

Performance - Vehicle mass has been reduced by 200 pounds or more, depending on the model, creating a more nimble, responsive driving experience;

Technology – Includes an all-new Drive Mode Selector, which tailors up to eight vehicle attributes for four modes: Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport and – on SS models – Track settings, segment-exclusive Interior Spectrum Lighting that offers 24 different ambient lighting effects on the dash, door panels, and center console, and high-definition, configurable color displays – including available dual, eight-inch-diagonal screens; and

Design – Featuring a more athletic-looking, sculptured exterior that complements the tighter, leaner architecture, all-new, modern lighting signatures including light-emitting diode (LED) technology, greater emphasis on customer personalization with wider range of choices, including 10 exterior colors, five interior color combinations, lighting options and a full complement of dealer-available accessories available at launch – including wheels, stripe packages and additional accessories, and aerodynamically optimized design that is the result of 350 hours of wind tunnel testing, reducing drag on LT models and improving down force on SS.
