2016 Chevrolet Camaro is not going to debut at the New York Auto Show. Instead, it is going to do that at its own special event at Belle Isle Park in Detroit. We have already heard its engine and now it is time for more details that reveal the untamed nature of the car. The team behind the construction of the sixth generation Camaro was challenged to bring about more from the handling, acceleration and to make sure that the fuel efficiency is even better.
This was a really tough task, because it meant that the new Chevy needed to loose more than 200 pounds (in comparison to the fifth gen version). At the same time, the engineers promised that some of the key characteristics of the Gen 5 will be kept. One of them is the agility, which allows for harder brakes and fantastic management of cornering.
In addition, the car will be also built over a brand new architecture that is mass-efficient and contributes for the weight savings. Such role has played other small changes like the aluminum beam supporting the instrument panel compared to the previous one made of steel. In addition, from aluminum are also made the front and rear suspension.
Chevrolet says that even the size of the muscle car has been changed. In fact, the exterior and interior dimensions are new to the Camaro and even some of the components in the Small Block 6.2L LT1 V-8 unit. All that is left is to pray for more teasers until 16th of May, because this is the exact date of the debut.
