Chevrolet has recently announced some interesting details on the new generation of the Camaro, which should be unveiled on the 16th of May, during a special event, which will take place in Detroit.
The sixth generation of the Chevrolet Camaro is getting ready to take on some new rivals, including the new generation of the Ford Mustang or even the impressive Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, but until it will be officially out on the market, the company is still keeping it a secret and it is announcing some minor details on it, every once in a while, in between releasing teaser images. The newest details released by Chevrolet on the new Camaro generation are telling us that this will be more than 200 lbs (91 kg) lighter compared to its predecessor.
According to the car manufacturer, the diet has become possible thanks to the new architecture which is using aluminum. The front and rear suspension assemblies have been also made out of aluminum and the entire suspension is now 21 percent lighter than the fifth generation of the model. Chevy is stating that the front structure is longer and wider and that the whole muscle car will get more than 70 percent brand new components. The 6.2 liter V8 engine is expected to be found under its hood and, if it will receive supercharging, chances are that this version will actually rival the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. More details on the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro are limited at this time and will be made public at the special event in Detroit, on the 16th of May, when it will be unveiled.
