Chevrolet have been working hard towards improving the design of the Camaro, particularly on the technological side, and the 2016 edition of the car will offer a significantly improved overall experience, although interested buyers will also have to spend a bit more than previously in order to get their hands on the brand new edition. With all the changes that have been implemented by Chevrolet, is the new model worth it?
The company has been quite outspoken about the kinds of improvements that we can expect to see in the new Camaro, so they’re obviously putting a lot of trust in this model’s success. They’ve particularly bumped up the performance and handling, according to reports, and it should be an even more attractive choice for those who want to feel a little true power under their feet.
At the same time, the car will come with various fine customization options, so buyers will get a chance to truly make it their own and have it control exactly the way they want it. Chevrolet’s engineers and designers have managed to cut down the weight of the car by around 100 kilograms, and the new chassis has been touted as a significant improvement in the design on its own.
It’s interesting to see that this type of car is coming back to the market and in full force, too. There was speculation that “muscle cars” would eventually die down as a trend, as there were various factors in the economy and overall market situation that made them a less attractive choice for most buyers. Sure, they’ve always retained a niche following, but a manufacturer can’t really rely on that if they want to establish solid success on the market.
But now, this type of car is starting to enjoy a lot of popularity once again, and Chevrolet might have picked the absolute best time to introduce a new model to the market with such an attractive overall package. Reports indicate that the sales for muscle cars have been getting very strong lately as a whole, and we expect this model to see a lot of success on the market if Chevrolet play their cards with the marketing right.
They’ve never been a company to handle that incorrectly in the first place though, so we don’t expect any problems there. Plus, there has been a lot of attention on the 2016 Camaro in general, so the company won’t even have to put a lot of effort into promoting that model.
What can buyers expect to get from the new 2016 Camaro though? A 2.0 liter turbocharged engine powers the model, with an output of 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It should have quite the good acceleration and top speed, but at the same time GM are claiming that the model will also have a relatively good fuel efficiency, so it might not be the gas-thirsty beast that most are expecting from a car with these specifications.
Technological improvements can be seen on the inside as well, with various gadgets around the interior allowing the driver to get the most out of their rides, and truly feel comfortable even on a longer trip. Chevy have generally been known as a brand that knows how to make their customers feel right at home in their models, so that shouldn’t really be so surprising. It generally looks like the price of the model will be more than justified.
