Chevrolet Announces More Details about Gen 6 Camaro
By the end of next week we will have the impression of the sixth generation Camaro. I don't know about you, but I am really impatient to see it. Chevrolet is obviously sensing the strong anticipation among fans and has released two more pictures (teasers only) of the future model.
They show that the 2015 Camaro will sport a sculpted exterior that will reflect athletic stance and typical muscle car presence. However, let's take a look back before we discuss the new details.
The first thing that the American company released was that the vehicle will shed more than 200 pounds of its weight. The car will be actually built over a new architecture that is mass-efficient and contributes for the weight savings.

Small changes like the aluminum beam supporting the instrument panel or the aluminum front and rear suspension contribute for that. Chevrolet also said that the dimensions of the exterior and interior are new to the Camaro Gen 6 as well as some of the components in the Small Block 6.2L LT1 V-8 unit.
After these initial announcements Chevy teased the Camaro again, releasing two new images depicting the engine and the exhaust. The company also disclosed that the car will be equipped with new Drive Mode Selector, which will make most of its performance and will feature multiple drive settings.

Precisely, there will be exactly eight selectable modes, each of which will feature calibrations that will ensure that a specific throttle progression, steering and stability control is delivered. Magnetic Ride Control will be also included for the first time, but only in the SS.
In addition, it was also unveiled that the new Camaro's sports exhaust system will have electronically controlled valves. Their purpose is to deliver better performance and greater sound levels.
Now, the company is announcing that the Chevy Camaro features leaner and more athletic design that complements the new driving experience. This news is accompanied by two teaser images which are the last two in the gallery below.
The design team at Chevrolet also said that the iconic muscle car will have more expressive design. The exterior of the model will be defined by complex shapes that will follow the functional elements. This means that they will be fitted around the mechanical components.
Take for instance the aluminum hood which includes powerful, but at the same time smoothly curved sculpted forms that were also highlighted by sharp creases. The end effect is that the hood looks like it has been shrink-wrapped around the engine.
In addition, the rear fenders feature an updated design which now includes more detailing, like the subtle crease that is parallel to the fender edge. As a result the new Camaro appears to have lower and wider stance.
Well, that is all for now, but stay tuned because Chevy is surely announcing more details and releasing additional pictures of the 2016 Camaro before its official debut on 16th of May at Detroit's Belle Isle Park.
