2016 Chevrolet Camaro To Get Four-Cylinder Engine

Posted by on

2016 Chevrolet Camaro will probably get some changes when compared to the current generation car. However, they won’t include design modifications, but rather some engine tweaks. There has been rumored that the new Chevy will be equipped as an option with four cylinder engine. These assumptions are based on the reports that the car will be lighter by several hundred pounds. Furthermore, the new 2016 Camaro will also grow on size, meaning that it won’t use anymore the short-wheelbase version of Alpha from the Cadillac ATS. It will be rather built on the long-wheelbase CTS.

In other words this will make the new Camaro 2.3 inches longer than the current generation. The overall length of the car is expected to be around 114.6 inches, and this means that it will be 7.5 inches longer than the 2015 Ford Mustang, but still shorter than the current Dodge Challenger.

The smaller, entry-level engine fitted to the coupe, is expected to be like the one used in the Cadillac ATS and CTS – the 2.0-liter turbocharged powertrain. This unit produces 272 horsepower (200 kW) and 400 Nm (295 pound-feet) of torque. Actually, most probably the car will be equipped with modified 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, which we have seen in the new Mustang. This unit is capable of more than 305 hp (2205 kW) and 407 Nm (300 lb-ft) of torque.

Of course, there has been nothing said about discontinuation of the current 3.6-liter V-6 and 6.2-liter V-8 units. 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will make an official world debut in the beginning of 2015. It is expected to go on sale later that year.
