Chevrolet has released two more teaser images of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, giving a glimpse of front and the side profile of the next-gen muscle car. The front gets newly designed upper grille and airdam grille. The side teaser image reveals that the roofline tapers towards the rear-end now. The triangular rear quarter glass with three corners is a larger, sort of trapezoidal in shape now, with four corners. A tailgate-mounted fixed rear wing is also visible.
Along with the teasers, the company has also released new technical details about the all-new model. After 350 hours of wind tunnel testing – often 24 hours a day – the sixth generation Camaro SS has received a significant improvement in reducing aerodynamic lift. The lower grille bars have been set at a 13-degree angle to the horizon. To reduce aerodynamic lift, instead of a front air dam, the engineers working on the next Camaro developed a flush belly pan that stretches from the grille to the center of the vehicle. The smooth underbody paired with small “spats” forward of the front tires helps reducing the total aerodynamic lift by 30%.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be unveiled during a special public event on Saturday, May 16, on Belle Isle island park where the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix is hosted, in Detroit.
