There is no need to mince words: the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is one good-looking car. It’s smaller and lighter, but it’s also more responsive and efficient. Braking is better, turning and handling are also tighter. On the road, it just makes for a completely smooth experience overall.
Sure, it may have some fierce competition with other muscle cars, but it can only be competition of that intensity that can result into a newer, better version such as the one coming your way this year.
In terms of its physicality, the 2016 Camaro stands 2.3 inches shorter than usual, with 0.8 inches shaved off its width and 1.1 inches taken off its height. Meanwhile, both front and rear track measurements have also been reduced by 0.4 and 1.1 inches, respectively. Also, the wheelbase is now minus 1.6 inches. Those measurements may seem miniscule, but the difference in weight of up to 133 lbs is remarkable.
Now for the stuff that gets Camaro fans all excited: the engine. Under the hood is a standard turbocharged four-cylinder V6 engine, but with an upgrade to V8 with the SS variant. The four-cylinder is actually making its first Camaro appearance in 30 years, so this is certainly something special.
Transmission-wise, you will still enjoy the same manual orientation and gear counts. For the automatic, however, you’ll get your hands on the new 8L90.
For the horsepower, the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is at 275, while torque is at 295 lb-ft.
