New details on the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro have been released by the North American based automaker, as the model in question will be unveiled on the 16th of May.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is being highlighted once again, this time with the carmaker releasing some new details on it. According to the company, the new generation of the muscle car will be riding on the Alpha platform and it will get more than 70 percent of the parts unique to it, including the cabin, the front and rear suspension and its body.
“Alpha provided a strong foundation, but more than 70 percent of the components are unique to the Gen 6 Camaro, including exterior and interior dimensions, an all-new interior, front and rear suspension, and powertrain components. The minute you see – and hear – the Gen 6, you know it’s a Camaro, from the stance to the driving experience to the sound of the Small Block V-8”, said Mark Reuss, the Global Product Development GM Executive VP.
Chevrolet is also saying, in its press release, that 20 percent of the 6.2 liter V8 engine has been tailored to fit the new Camaro generation. Initial rumor were saying that the entry-level version of the model should get a 2-liter four-cylinder engine, with 272 HP, which will go up against the mid-range Mustang EcoBoost, but this hasn’t been officially confirmed, at this time. The new Camaro generation will be unveiled at a special event organized in Detroit, on Belle Isle, at the 982-acre island park in front of 1,000 people, who will be able to take hot laps in the 2015 Camaro Z/28.
