The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is Leaner, Meaner, and Smarter than Ever Before

2016 Chevrolet Camaros

Receiving a thorough makeover for this its sixth-generation, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is sleek, svelte, powerful, and loaded with class-leading technologies. If you are a Camaro enthusiast, like all of us here at Chevrolet of Homewood, then you are sure to be thrilled at this latest version of Chevy’s iconic pony car.

The engineers at Chevy have amped up the performance, shed 200 pounds from the car’s total weight, and added in control tech, such as the new Driver Mode Selector that you won’t find on any other top-of-the-line muscle car. What that means for performance fans from Calumet City to Orland Park is that you’ve got a street legal muscle machine that just has to be experienced to be believed.

Beefing Up the Power

Okay, we know you want to be filled in on the engines offered on the 2016 Camaro, so let’s get right down to it. There are 4 trims—1LT, 2LT, 1SS, and 2SS—and 3 powerful and responsive engines to choose from. With the LT models you’ll have a choice between 2 dynamic powertrains

  • 2.0L Turbo1 which delivers SAE-certified 275 hp with 295 lb-ft of torque, paired with either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed paddle-shift automatic.
  • 3.6L V6 producing SAE-certified 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque, paired to the same 6-speed manual or an 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.

Both of the SS Models come standard with a 6.2L V8 engine capable of an SAE-certified 455 hp with 455 lb-ft of torque—the most powerful engine ever offered on the Camaro SS. Transmissions offered on the SS models are either a 6-speed manual with Active Rev Matching, or the 8-speed paddle-shift automatic.

Redesigned from the Inside Out

Lighter, stiffer, and more nimble, the sleek design hearkens back to the classic Camaro style while being totally modern. Tighter curves give the car a much leaner, meaner look, while the sophisticated interior has been redesigned to be decidedly more driver-centric, outfitted with premium materials and advanced features.
