When the folks said that they were planning to completely redesign the Camaro, they were not kidding when the world got its first glimpse of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. It sports a 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers 335-horsepower with 284 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is found at 18 mpg city, 27 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined. Aside from the rear bow-tie badge and SS emblems, just about everything else on this 2016 model are changed.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Sports A New Exterior and Interior
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is smaller, faster, leaner, and now more capable than its predecesso. This is Chevrolet’s latest performance masterpiece of a vehicle that is made to be like an athlete that has spent years in training to perfect his craft. This “athlete” is now ready to be part of the Olympic team. Even though the 2016 model of the Camaro resembles the outgoing model in its basic form, it is all-new in just about every aspect.
One reason the 2016 Camaro is so much trimmer than it was with its predecessor is because it is physically smaller. It is now 2.5-inches shorter, its haunches are almost 1-inch narrower, and it now sits about an inch closer to the ground. Even its wheelbase was not exempted to get the shortening treatment as it has been truncated by over an inch-and-a-half.
These changes in the 2016 model of Chevy’s Camaro will make it an ideal rival to the 2016 Ford Mustang. The primary dimensions of both models are within really short distance within one another. Surprisingly, they are even at the exact same length which is at 188.3-inches.
If that comparison is not enough, the powertrain between both vehicles are also twins. Ford’s contender is like the exact rival of the Camaro as they both offer a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a range-topping V-8, and a potent V-6.
As for its interiors, the new Camaro still does look like its predecessor and this is something of a double-edged sword. On the positive side of things, the controls found in the cabin are stylish and well laid ouut. These controls are easy to use and does bring the car to the modern age. Apple CarPlay is even compatible with the car.
Still, there are a number of unexpected negatives to this setup. The most egregious one is its visibility. The sight lines still remain really bad, and the cabin is still cramped as ever.
For the most part, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is a great redesign in both inside and out. It drives the way it should (which is a sweet deal). In just about every way, this is a great upgrade to the outgoing model.
