New 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Revealed

Chevrolet have announced that an all-new Camaro will be making it’s way into Europe in 2016, with the famous marque undergoing a complete renovation.

The Camaro has enjoyed almost unrelenting success in it’s native America where the clamour for muscle cars is substantial but has had limited success in attempts to comb the Camaro's popularity out into other regions. As a result, there are unfortunately no plans to make the Camaro in right hand-drive form, perhaps not surprising after Chevrolet confirmed in no uncertain terms they would be officially leaving the country.

But with the Ford Mustang’s UK debut just months away and all the excitement that vehicle has generated, it could be worth Chevrolet keeping a close-eye on the reaction in Britain. After all, the interest stretches a lot further than just a few groups of enthusiasts.

So what is the latest vehicle packing? The sixth-generation Camaro is apparently both quicker and more economical than it’s ancestors and has also shed a few pounds in the weight department.

In fact, the implementation of aluminium strength materials in the bodystyle of the Camaro means that 90kg of the vehicle’s weight has been relinquished. It’s also a little smaller, 57mm, with Chevrolet making no bones about the fact the vehicles has had 70% of it’s structure tweaked. Nice.

If it ain’t broke why fix it?

The Camaro has sold over four and a half million models since it first hit the market and all of the generations have enjoyed their own slice of the muscle-car pie. The previous generation had an exceptionally long and prosperous life, perhaps proliferated by it’s appearance in robot-action flick Transformers.

However, the fresh layout of the Camaro is likely to prove very popular with the US market and when you consider the vehicle’s evolution over it’s life it’s hard to see things getting worse for Chevy.

Power is everything

The new Camaro has been given a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine, serving up a delightful 275bhp and 400Nm of torque. 0-62mph should be attainable at  figure around five seconds. If that’s whet your appetite take a look at the 6.2-litre V8 which provides you with a staggering 455bhp and 617Nm of torque – nearly double that of the new engine. Looking at MPG for this engine will take a brave soul.

There’s also a new 3.6-litre V6 which is slightly tamer – but still ferociously quick – with 355bhp and 285Nm of torque produced.

All sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? We can only hope that Chevrolet bite the bullet and bring the Camaro to the UK. Its latest generation and the interest surrounding it suggests that it could be a pretty good, but far-fetched, move.
