The 2016 Camaro is the sixth generation of Chevrolet's famed two-door performance coupe and convertible powered by a choice of naturally aspirated V6 and V8 engines or a turbocharged inline-four motor. Lightweight aluminum wheels and suspension components are standard features, as is a redesigned interior.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is available in LT, RS and SS trims. The base LT trim receives a 2-liter turbocharged inline-four engine producing 275 horsepower and 295 foot-pounds of torque, while the RS is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine producing 335 horsepower and 285 foot-pounds of torque. The SS, or "Super Sport," trim is fitted with the 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine also used in the Chevrolet Corvette that produces 455 horsepower and 455 foot-pounds of torque in the SS. High-performance Brembo brakes are standard on the SS and available as an option on other trims. Both manual and paddle-shift automatic transmissions are available options.
The 2016 Camaro is significantly lighter and rides nearly an inch lower than the fifth-generation model in large part due to its new aluminum-based suspension. This suspension is derived from the one used in the Cadillac CTS sedan and ATS coupe. The lighter weight and lower ride height improve handling response and overall performance, making the 2016 Camaro faster and more agile than the outgoing model.
