2016 Chevy Camaro Redesign — Significant Changes

This pony car epitome comes once again to tackle the competition. The 2016 Chevy Camaro changes list is not long, but it starts with the most fundamental part. Instead of the old Zeta platform, the 2016 Camaro is underpinned by the Alpha rear-wheel-drive platform used as a base for both Cadillac’s ATS and CTS models. One would assume that since it got a new platform it will certainly get a new appearance. Unfortunately, that won’t be a case. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro appearance will be slightly modified, so it would rather be called a refreshment instead of a redesign. This approach has its good and bad sides, but we should bear in mind that the previous generation of Camaro doesn’t look outdated. Actually, it was made by blending the traditional design language and modern, more aggressive expression. Since the manufacturer obviously thinks the design is attractive enough, the 2016 Chevy Camaro redesign won’t make it to the most exclusive news, but also, it won’t be neglected in the automotive public. Since the Camaro’s nemesis, the 2015 Ford Mustang, will be available this fall and the 2016 Camaro will probably be introduced at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2015, someone who intends to buy a car within this particular market segment, must make a rational decision regarding the question — is the 2016 Chevy Camaro worth waiting for?



While someone who wants to buy a muscle car coupe can go for the 2015 Mustang or the 2015 Challenger, there are numerous drivers who will wait for the 2016 Camaro. Like we already said, according to some announcements, it won’t suffer a distinctive major redesign, which will stand out be a symbol of this, sixth generation. Having in mind that changing the platform while keeping almost the same design is maybe more demanding than creating a completely new appearance, the 2016 Chevy Camaro redesign shouldn’t be considered as nothing special. After all, there will be some noticeable changes regarding the style and look, the body will be changed, but its basic design paradigm will remain. Why is this design solution a good one? Well, considering the overall appearance of the Camaro already good enough, there isn’t anything special they could do to make it radically more attractive at this point. Also, if they manage to improve some of the issues, such as visibility and interior, there’s really no need for a major redesign.



As for the powertrain, some sources claim the 2016 Chevy Camaro will have new engines. There’s a 6.2-liter LT4 eight-cylinder engine which will, after being replaced under the hood of the 2015 Corvette Z06, continue its life inside the 2016 Camaro. It generated 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque when installed in the Z06; however, inside the Camaro, it will have weaker power output. Also, there are rumors which say this coupe will get engines with four and six cylinders, too.


Like we already said, the 2016 Chevorlet Camaro premiere will take place at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. This means we can expect it to be in the dealerships’ showrooms by the summer next year.
