Aside from the addition of a four-cylinder engine, and the upgraded V8, there are plenty of other new performance features Chevy is adding to the Camaro. Things like a drive mode selector, a magnetic ride control, and even a dual mode exhaust — like the C7 Corvette — are just some of the features we know of right now.
Add to that the fact that it will lose over 200 pounds from the current generation, and gain a new set of Brembo brakes, and the Camaro looks like it will be a real performer. Even GM’s Mark Ruess is “very confident” the new Camaro will outgun the Mustang. And that’s saying a lot.
We haven’t heard much in terms of design up until recently— but we do know that the Camaro will look much different.
Some of the retro styling will be gone in place of a more modern look. Don’t be surprised if the Camaro’s face looks like a few other cars in the upcoming Chevy lineup. A single design direction is looking to be Chevy’s latest proposal.
A few days back, Chevy did give us us a very vague teaser of the rear (seen above), as well as a new badge heralding back to the Camaro of the 70s and 80s. Otherwise, we’re left in the dark — literally and figuratively — about what Chevy is planning on doing in terms of design.
On May 16, 2015, Chevy will reveal its new Camaro to the world at Belle Isle Park in Detroit. It’s going to be a big day for enthusiasts, and I’ll be on the ground to cover anything and everything you need to know.
Until then, we’ll have to do with teasers and predictions.
