The sixth generation 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has been completely redesigned from the ground up and now sports a new interior and new powertrain options.
For the first time, the Camaro is available with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The V-6 is also heavily revamped and can cut back to four cylinder operation to improve fuel economy.
Both V6 and V8 engines carry over from the previous model. There’s also a new turbocharged four-cylinder for those who want a Camaro with maximum fuel economy.
A revised 3.6-liter V6 makes 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque — modest gains compared to the outgoing engine. The 6.2-liter V8 also gets a power bump, now up to 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque.
The new 2.0-liter four-cylinder is rated at 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Chevy says four-cylinder Camaros should return more than 30 highway mpg while still dashing from zero to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds.
All three engines are available with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
Inside, designers went over every detail to include the latest technology consumers have come to expect from modern vehicles, while still keeping the interior unmistakably Camaro. The redesigned interior features a shifter-focused center console, intuitive controls, flat-bottom steering wheel, and higher quality materials throughout the cabin. Unique control rings around the air vents are used for temperature and fan speed adjustments, eliminating the need for conventional buttons
