The silence is finally broken! We urge you to hear the throat of the next generation Camaro in the video below. The sixth edition of the most popular muscle car will be absolutely unique, right? What you don't know is that the new Chevy model has been entirely reworked. In fact almost 70 percent of its architecture components are one-off. This means that Camaro Six will be a true performance master from the inside out judging from the sound it produces.
In addition, Chevrolet told us some very special details about the car. First, we must expect an "all-new car", starting from the front with the redesigned grille and ending with the rear spoiler. In fact, there are exactly two elements that are taken from the fifth gen Camaro and these are the bowtie emblem on the taillamp panel and the SS badge.
Next, the car will be based on the Alpha architecture developed by General Motors. If this does not speak anything to you, then it is probably good to know that the Alpha will offer engaging driving dynamics, refined experience and the needed balanced stiffness. As mentioned, this architecture includes components that are new in the amount of up to 70 percent.
Even the size of the muscle icon is changed. Chevrolet says that the exterior and interior dimensions are new to the Gen 6, as well as the front and rear suspension and some of the components in the Small Block 6.2L LT1 V-8 engine. Mentioning the powertrain, 20 percent of it will be tailored to fit the Camaro's new dimensions, including the tubular "tri-Y"-style exhaust manifolds.
Another instance is the front structure that is now lighter, while the profile is widened in order to deliver more stable driving experience. In addition, inside we will meet an interior that we have never seen before.
2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be unveiled on 16th of May at event in Detroit's Belle Isle park. There are a lot of teasers to be unleashed until then, so stay tuned for more information and don't forget to watch (and hear) the video below.
