Chevrolet teases 2016 Camaro’s “sculpted” exterior

May 1, 2015

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. 2016 Chevrolet Camaro hood teaser 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. 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Front Suspension 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.

  1. If the SS/V-8 weighs significantly less(200_lbs.) then the Eco’b Mustang, and if GM has gone to the engineering detail extant that Ford has with the Mustang, we will have some great Pony cars and quite a competition for the best of the best.

    Ford will have to upgrade their suspension to compete with the Magnetic Ride Control of the Camaro, and , if, the Camaro gets the E-dif(seems that it will) of the Corvette and ATS/CTS-V’s, it will have to address that situation to stay competitive.

    Exciting times for Pony car aficionados, especially for those who who hold no maker prejudices and will choose based on what they perceive to be the best one or best looking one, because they are well matched in most specifications.

  2. From the sheet metal development presented, it looks like the designers adopted as much as they could, given the environment, of the design language of the C7.

    Hoping they also put a lot of effort into the Dash/Stack/Console/Interior like Ford has with the new Mustang. The last dash on the gen-5 was okay, but was it has to be better executed in this generation. as the new Mustang has seriously raised the bar.

    And, I hope that the Camaro still offers an operable sunroof.
