The 6th generation Chevrolet Camaro is smaller,
lighter and therefore more agile in comparison to the previous
Chevrolet Camaro generation.
With the design based on the previous generation model, the
2016 Chevy Camaro exterior is completely updated and
built-up. It is also reduced in size. A sleeker, longer
roofline, which is reminiscent of Sedan profile, and apparently
shorter wheelbase tidy up the lines out back. The headlamps are
deep-set in a split upper grille. Although there are some
occasional softer and smoother lines, the vehicle still looks
pretty aggressive much like its predecessors.
The car retains the same chassis that the previous models had.
New 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has a somewhat changed platform
which will result in fuel consumption reduction.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro interior has been redesigned for
better ergonomics, more high-technology, and an improved driver
position by means of utilizing better materials.
When it comes to comfortability part, the car has
height-adjustable driver seat and folding rear seatback, all
covered in cloth; needless to say it’s also equipped with air
conditioning and interior air filtration. As for the
power features, it has remote power door locks, 2 one-touch
power windows and power mirrors. It has a tilt and telescopic
steering wheel accompanied by audio and cruise controls.
The car has a rich infotainment system which includes an
element antenna, 6 total speakers with 80 watts stereo output,
AM/FM stereo, Sirius XM satellite radio with 3 months of
provided satellite radio service, an auxiliary MP3 audio input
and a USB input. As for the telematics, Bluetooth wireless data
link for hands-free phone and OnStar telecommunications service

automatic in the future production.

produce around 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of
torque. It is estimated that the model with this engine

The new rear-wheel-drive architecture is expected to reduce the
weight of the vehicle by up to 300 pounds.
