The Chevy Camaro 2016 is the sixth generation of Camaro, and it is under the GM Alpha platform, General Motor's compact to mid-size, front engine, rear-wheel and four-wheel drives.  The Camaro of 2016 will be "smaller, faster, and nimbler", and it looks to be quite something with improvements made to the exterior and the interior.  This is what is known about the Chevy Camaro 2016 Specs, Release Date, and Price. 

According to the main 2016 Camaro website, the powertrain lineup has the option of three variations.  The first is the 2.0L Turbo with 275 hp and 295 lb.-ft of torque, capable of 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds in manual and 5.5 seconds in automatic.  The second is the 6.2L V8 with 455 hp and 455 lb.-fit of torque from the small block LT1 V8 to being the most powerful Camaro SS ever, with the capability of 0 to 60 mph of 5.2 seconds in manual and 5.1 seconds in automatic.  The third is the 3.6L V6, which is good for 335 hp and 284 lb.-ft of torque along with Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing, and Active Fuel Management on the 8-speed automatic.  This third option is capable of 0-60 in 4.3 seconds in manual and 4.0 seconds in automatic. 

According to Sean Cars, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has the same external design of the outgoing model, but every panel and detail has been revised.  In fact, it is smaller than the preceding model by about two inches in length, one inch smaller in its breadth, and an inch shorter in height.  In addition to the inches, the car will be losing about 200 pounds and be 28 percent more stiff.  Another change, even though it is minor, is the size and shape of its front grille of mesh and headlights with a new LED design.  The transmission has a multi-link MacPherson strut suspension with dual-pivot design, and the back axle has a revamped five-link automatic suspension. 

As for the interior, the company considers it a Command Center.  It is also made to look like the preceding model, with chrome borders on the analog meters.  Buyers have the option of restoring them with an 8-inch configurable high definition monitor that displays some navigation as well as entertainment features.  There is also another 8-inch monitor made to sit in the middle of the dashboard, and it is an improved MyLink system.  The interior also has an LED ambient illumination system for the door panels, dash, and center console with 24 different colors in addition to some fade and changeover effects. 

So, this is going to be quite a car for Chevrolet this year, and the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be available in the last quarter of 2015 with a starting price of $26,695.
