2016 Chevrolet Camaro previewed
The completely new Camaro can be due to be revealed later This particular month
Upcoming Chevrolet Camaro will be lighter than the current car as well as also offer a wider range of engines
Elements of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro’s shape have been revealed in a series of official preview pictures ahead of your vehicle’s planned launch in Detroit later This particular month.
The sixth-generation muscle car – whose chief rival will be the completely new Ford Mustang – has been spotted testing numerous times within the run-up to its debut.
Chevrolet says your vehicle has spent around 350 hours in wind tunnels to refine its aerodynamic properties as well as also maximise cooling to its 6.2-litre V8 engine.
The completely new type can be also claimed to be around 90kg lighter than the fifth-generation Camaro, which weighs in at 1687kg, with GM’s completely new ‘Alpha’ architecture said to be responsible for much of the weight saving. your vehicle’s structure can be also 28% stiffer than before.
additional modifications include completely new aluminium suspension assemblies which feature a completely new design in which the suspension components are more than 20% lighter than the steel units on the outgoing car.
As well as its staple little-block V8 engine, Chevrolet can be likely to keep the current 3.6-litre V6 via today’s Camaro. This particular has also been suggested in which the company will offer a turbocharged V6 as well as a completely new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine with 268bhp as well as also 295lb ft.
The completely new four-cylinder type can be likely to be the most fuel efficient option within the range, as well as also should allow Chevrolet to compete on greener terms with Ford’s 2.3-litre Ecoboost-engined Mustang.
Camaro drivers will be able to switch between four different driving modes inside, that has a Snow/Ice option offered alongside Tour, Sport as well as also Track modes. The Track mode will be exclusive to SS-badged vehicles.
Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser has already praised the completely new car’s handling. “The completely new Camaro brakes harder, flicks into corners more quickly, as well as also drives out of the corner faster,” he said. “We expect This particular will set the benchmark within the segment as well as also give many sports cars a challenge.”
While the coupé can be likely to go on sale within the US soon after its launch, Chevrolet can be also understood to be readying ZL1 as well as also Z/28 replacements for the not too distant futue, as well as a convertible type.
Production of the completely new Camaro will take place at GM’s Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan. This particular’s unlikely in which the completely new Camaro will be made available officialy within the UK given GM’s decision to axe Chevrolet via Europe. Specialist importers, however, may continue to bring the completely new type to This particular country.
