After months of anticipation, Chevrolet has finally unveiled the sixth generation 2016 Camaro Z28 in Detroit at a special event held at the Bell Isle Park coinciding the pony car's 50th anniversary. The 2016 Camaro Z28 comes in three variants, including a new 3.6-liter V6 engine that is capable of producing 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque, a marked improvement from the Camaro 5th generation with 323 hp and 278 lb-ft, said Digital Trends

An SS model with 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine that is capable of unleashing 455 hp and 455 lb.-ft. of torque also available. Chevrolet said this version of the 2016 Camaro Z28 is meaner and more powerful compared to its civil counterpart, and "will bring to life the most powerful Camaro SS ever.

A 6.2-liter LT1 V8 with 455 hp and matching torque is planned for SS models, but the inevitable Z28 is still under wraps. The car will undoubtedly be meaner, more powerful, and more aggressive than its comparatively civil counterparts, and Hungarian artist X-Tomi Design has given us an idea of what the sixth-gen Z28 could look like.

Aside from the 3.6-liter V6 and 6.2-liter V8, the 2016 Camaro Z28 will offer a 2.0-liter Turbo version. The turbocharged is driving force with 275 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque is primed for unexpected levels of refined performance and response.

The 2016 Camaro Z28 will weigh lighter since it has smaller body than its predecessor. It could be great news for any people especially for those who want to have a fast car. There is also a rear spoiler placed on back. It becomes great addition for the car's performance. However, it is better to wait for any information from Chevrolet that explains about the function of spoiler.

For navigation panel, there will be some features that are often found on car. Chevrolet will also add some great points to make the cabin is more comfortable and any people will feel cozy inside the car for a long ride.

2016 Camaro Z28 is Talk of The Town

Indeed the Camaro Z28 is the current talk of the town as far as sports cars are concerned.

Automotive News has compiled what experts are saying about the new 2016 Camaro Z28.

"The new seating position is excellent, and the new lower dashboard helps with outward forward visibility. But the Camaro still makes you feel like you're sitting in a bunker, looking out of a gun slit. Ride and handling are outstanding, with the suspension able to soak up track imperfections with ease, while not disturbing either the steering or stability. The brakes feel much stronger as well. The 2015 model's brakes felt squishy and overworked after several laps with journalists at the wheel, but the 2016 model exhibited no fade or softness in the pedal."

"The Camaro rides on a platform that is significantly lighter than the one used before. You immediately feel this in every aspect of the new car's dynamics, whether you're punching the gas on a straightaway, or braking as hard as you can for a 90-degree corner. This is a smoother, more linear-feeling Camaro, one that doesn't have the heft of the previous model -- and is all the better for it."

-- Nick Kurczewski, New York Daily News

"Welcome to Golden Era II of the muscle car where Chevy, Ford, and Dodge are in a dog -- er, pony -- fight for segment supremacy not unlike the Big Three pickup wars. But where Dodge's ferocious, new, 707-horsepower Challenger Hellcat is the undisputed king of brawn, the Camaro and Mustang are exploring new frontiers for muscle car handling. Frontiers like race tracks -- traditionally venues reserved for introducing track-tuned, alphanumeric-badged beasts like a Z28 or GT500, not a base Camaro ... These aren't your grand-dad's '60s Dream Cruisers that sprinted like stallions from a stoplight but wallowed like pigs through the twisties. Handling? That used to be the stuff of small luxury sedans and sports cars. But with its 2015 Mustang, Ford transformed its pony's front and rear suspensions and leap-frogged the Camaro in handling. Aw, Ford, you just went and made Chevy mad. One year later, and Camaro has answered with a steed ... built on a small luxury sedan chassis. The same Alpha platform used by the sensational, best-in-class Cadillac ATS carving knife. By Turn 2 at Belle Isle, I knew the Gen-6 Camaro was a different animal."
