First hitting street in the late 1960s, the Chevrolet Camaro has long been recognized for its bold styling and robust performance, placing this iconic model at the forefront of the American muscle car movement. Currently available in both coupe and convertible body styles, the Chevrolet Camaro has recently been redesigned with a continued emphasis on rubber-burning performance along with modern features.

The redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Camaro catapults this uncompromising muscle car years into the future with a trio of sophisticated and powerful engine choices and a tremendous degree of comfort and features inside the cabin. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder that makes 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, while fuel economy estimates are expected to be above 30 mpg highway. The second engine in the lineup is a 3.6L V6 that serves up 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque. Coming out on top is a 6.2L V8 that doesn’t mess around, delivering a staggering 455 hp, 455 lb-ft of torque, and a zero to 60 mph time of a swift 4.0 seconds.
The cabin provides spacious seating for up to four passengers, plenty of room for cargo in the trunk, and a wide variety of standard and available features. One highlight is the Chevy MyLink smartphone interface with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities. You’ll also enjoy Chevy’s advanced OnStar telematics system with crash notification, roadside assistance, stolen vehicle assistance, a navigation system, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
- Edmunds: “The 2016 Camaro is fast. Very fast. We haven’t tested the base turbocharged four-cylinder yet, but our first impressions of the V6- and V8-powered Camaros have confirmed that Chevrolet is taking the fight directly to the Mustang and Challenger.”
- Kelley Blue Book: “The new Camaro offers the kind of handling and braking that was once the exclusive purview of higher-end European sports coupes and sedans, all with distinctly American styling and big V8 rumble.”
- Car and Driver: “The Camaro coupe and convertible follow the typical muscle-car recipe—a gutsy engine, two doors, and rear-wheel drive—but it stirs in lithe handling and sharp styling.”
The 2016 Camaro already received a thorough overhaul, so it’s unlikely we will see a full remake anytime in the immediate future, especially since the new model is off to such a successful start. However, there’s already quite a bit of buzz going around about the arrival of a new world-class performer in a new 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. We wouldn’t be surprised to see this model fitted with a turbocharged 6.2L V8. We don’t know exactly what it would look like, but expect more information soon.
