The online configurator tool for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has just been released by the American marque.
The configurator itself doesn’t provide all the customisation options actually available to 2016 Camaro customers but it does include some of the most significant. These include 10 different colours, four trim options, seven different wheel designs all measuring 20-inch, a number of different ground effect components and of course configurable interior finishes.
In case you didn’t know, the sixth generation Chevrolet Camaro sheds 200 pounds or more, depending on the model. Structural rigidity was increased by 28 percent, while the body-in-white mass was reduced by 133 pounds (60.5 kg). Weight savings come from the aluminium instrument panel frame, aluminium front suspension links and steel rear suspension links with lightening holes.
Engines include a new 2.0-litre turbocharged unit producing at 275 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). The new engine delivers more than 30 mpg on the highway (GM-estimated), and 0-96 km/h acceleration of under 6 seconds. Chevrolet also offer a new 3.6-litre V6 with 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque (385 Nm) – the highest specific output of any naturally aspirated V6 in the segment. The range topping Camaro SS gets a new 6.2-litre LT1 direct-injected Small Block V8 rated at 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque (617 Nm).
The suspension setup includes Magnetic Ride Control with active suspension. An all-new Drive Mode Selector tailors up to eight vehicle attributes for four modes: Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport and – exclusively for SS models – Track settings.
