When we redesigned the Camaro SS, we knew that we had created something exceptional. Its faster speed, lighter frame and cutting edge performance technology, makes it worthy of the title "ArabWheels' Car of the Year 2016". And those who came second, well, at least you can't complain about the view ahead.
Designers were challenged to sculpt a modern Camaro body around a smaller, lighter architecture while respecting the predecessor’s design. This allowed for a smaller, wider and more athletic Camaro shape. These tighter proportions in a sports car that shed 90 kg, translates into more responsive braking, better attack in and out of corners, and a noticeably more nimble performance. Tighter proportions also let the aggressive body features like the fastback profile and rear quarter panels become more pronounced, creating a road presence that’s hard to ignore.
Aerodynamically sculpted to perfection
The result of extensive wind tunnel testing hours can be found across the redesigned Camaro sports car. From the wider opening and precise draft angle of the grille, to the roof’s striking “reverse mohawk” channel, to the lift-reducing stanchion spoiler, the design of every surface and edge was scrutinized until it helped improve airflow and performance.
Chevrolet pays homage to a performance icon with the 50th Anniversary Edition. Head on over to learn more about the new Camaro Fifty.
What happens when a lightweight platform joins forces with precision steering, a sophisticated suspension system and a full suite of performance technologies? You engineer a Camaro 90 kg lighter, with 28% more structural rigidity than its predecessor, giving the driver a precise feel and connection to the road.
Uncompromising power and efficiency
However you want to drive, Camaro has a powertrain option tailored for you. From the 3.6L V6 to the 6.2L V8 automatic clocking 0 to 100 in 4.0 seconds flat, learn why there are no zero compromises of power or efficiency with any option.
New and available on LT, the 335 hp and 383 Nm of torque are balanced with Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing. On the 8-speed automatic, get Active Fuel Management™ and clock 0 to 100 in 5.1 seconds* (5.2 manual).
The V8 catapults the automatic Camaro SS 0 to 100 in 4 seconds flat (4.3 manual) with 455 hp and 614 Nm of torque. With Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel Management™ (automatic), its efficiency is just as impressive.
Get into gear
Whether you choose the convenience of the 8-speed paddle-shift automatic, or the tactile control of the 6-speed manual with Active Rev Matching on SS, either transmission option makes for an exhilarating driving experience.
DRIVERS, MAKE YOUR SELECTION
Switch between Sport, Tour Snow/Ice and Track (SS only) drive modes to instantly tailor the drive feel, sound, and character of eight mechanical and interior environment characteristic to experience four radically unique driving experiences.
Available on the V8 powertrain, manual or automatic, the dual-mode exhaust system with quad outlets relies on electric valves to open and close the active exhaust. This allowed precious mass to be shaved off the design compared to its predecessor’s system that needed a heavy vacuum tube to work the valves.
REFINED AND DRIVER-CENTRIC
Premium materials. Rich textures. Tailored stitching. This degree of refinement comes standard inside all Camaro models. But take the driver seat to discover the entire layout is optimized for performance driving. The sharpened styling includes:
Rotating Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning dials replace extra dash buttons for quicker, intuitive climate control
A center console layout with dual cup holders and ample storage yet exceptional ergonomics for shifting
The leather-wrapped steering wheel’s flat-bottom gives extra room for knees during maneuvers
8-inch radio touchscreen
An available reconfigurable instrument cluster to display key performance and vehicle info
Seating with aggressive bolsters and available heating/ventilation boosts comfort and provide support when enduring g-forces
INTERIOR SPECTRUM LIGHTING
Interior spectrum lighting on Camaro 2LT and Camaro SS, courses around the radio, door trim and cup holders, transitioning between 24 selectable colors. The color spectrum reacts to changes in drive modes, the lighting gives off an ambient nighttime glow, and selecting “show mode” triggers a pulsing, full-color light show.
Own the open sky
From the fully automatic soft top that seamlessly disappears beneath the hard tonneau cover, to modular underbody bracing to allow the same sharp, nimble handling as the coupe, the Camaro Convertible is a high-tech masterpiece. It even lets you raise or lower the top with a single button while driving up to 50 km/h, or lower remotely with the key fob.
