Chevy’s new Camaro is almost ready to brag about its many enhancements both inside and outside. After months of speculations, it has finally been confirmed that the new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will go on sale soon. Even though the new design of the vehicle was characterized as an evolution rather than a revolution.
We still expect to see many features that will make the vehicle look better, but also to improve its performance and road ability. Some trusted sources have confirmed that the newcomer will be good enough to compete against the venerable Mustang. The new model will lose weight. It will have more powerful engine options, and it will have numerous and fresher enhancements under its skin. Let’s analyze those changes in detail.
The first thing you need to know is that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is significantly lighter than its predecessor. That immediately means that it will be more powerful and fuel-efficient as well. It is 390 pounds lighter than the model it replaces. All this combined with enhanced output means that the vehicle will generate improved performance figures. Even though the vehicle generally looks almost the same as its predecessor, you can easily see that every single panel has been polished and reworked.
You probably won’t notice at the very first sight, but the new Camaro has been made smaller. Not significantly smaller though. Since it has a shorter wheelbase, it is two inches shorter, one inch slimmer, and an inch shorter than the vehicle it replaces. The vehicle now looks more like a sports coupe rather than a pony. The front fascia of the car is decorated with refreshed grille and headlights. The headlights arrive with LED technology. A larger intake has also been added.
As is the case with the exterior of 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, the company revised the interior design.They decided to keep it recognizable to Camaro fans. The instrument panel will be similar to the outgoing model. Those who don’t like it can also get a HD screen which displays details about performance, entertainment, and navigation. The center of the dashboard is occupied by an eight-inch screen that serves as an interface for the new MyLink system.
