Chevy has already announced that the all-new 2016 Camaro is going to debut on May 16 and now its started the teasing process. Although Chevy hasn’t released any photos of the new Camaro, we now have a video that lets us hear the sounds of the 2016 Camaro’s 6.2L V8.
Chevy says that the new Camaro is truely all-new with the only two parts carrying over from the fifth-generation model being the bowtie emblem on the taillamp panel and the SS badge. The 2016 Camaro is based on GM’s Alpha platform, which is also used by for the Cadillac ATS and CTS. Although the Camaro does get some changes, like the front structure that has been lengthened to create the dash-to-axle ratio necessary for car’s iconic profile, and widened to provide the desired track width for stable, confident cornering. In addition, 20 percent of the 6.2L LT1 V-8 engine has been tailored to fit the Camaro’s packaging, including new, tubular “tri-Y”-style exhaust manifolds.
“Our global engineering team is incredibly passionate about Camaro, and they sweated all the details to make Gen 6 the best Camaro we could possibly put into the hands of our customers,” said Mark Reuss, GM executive vice president, Global Product Development.
“Alpha provided a strong foundation, but more than 70 percent of the components are unique to the Gen 6 Camaro, including exterior and interior dimensions, an all-new interior, front and rear suspension, and powertrain components,” he said. “The minute you see – and hear – the Gen 6, you know it’s a Camaro, from the stance to the driving experience to the sound of the Small Block V-8.”
