Chevrolet has released first teaser images of the exterior parts of the 2016 Camaro. The “sculpted” exterior shows that the Camaro has gotten more angular and athletic for its sixth generation. The aluminum hood guises as if it is shrink-wrapped around the engine; it features smooth, curved surfaces which are separated by sharp creases. Unlike the fifth generation Camaro’s tail lamps, the sixth generation Camaro’s tail lamps will be tapered inwards. There’s a sleek, three-legged fixed rear spoiler also in the rear. Chevrolet has released several details about the 2016 Camaro in the past few weeks. The sixth generation model will be more than 200 lbs (91 kg) lighter than the fifth generation model. The remarkable weight reduction will aid in better performance, handling and fuel economy of the car. The rear-wheel drive Alpha platform underpinning the new generation model is the one to be praised for the significant weight reduction. Thanks to the use of aluminum and a hard composite material even more lighter than aluminum, the suspension is now 21% lighter compared to that of the fifth generation model. For the first time, the Camaro SS will feature Magnetic Ride Control, a feature which was exclusive to the Camaro ZL1 previously. Three preset settings that automatically configure the ride and handling balance – Tour, Sport and Track, will be offered by the active damping system. The system reads road and driver inputs at 1,000 times per second to adjust the dampers accordingly. Also among the noteworthy performance technologies of the 2016 Camaro, is an enhanced dual-mode exhaust system. It features new electronically controlled valves which bypass the exhaust mufflers under aggressive acceleration, for improved performance and sound levels.
The sixth generation, MY2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be unveiled on Saturday, May 16, on Belle Isle island park where the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Ise Grand Prix is hosted, in Detroit.
