The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro isn’t just lighter and quicker than the 2015 it’s replacing, it’s cheaper too. Those looking to buy a new Camaro will be dishing out just a bit less than they would if they were to walk into a dealership this today for the current-generation car.
Base price for a throaty four-cylinder Camaro pricing starts at only $26,695 for the LT trim, including the $995 destination charge. For that, you’re getting a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that puts out a respectable 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft torque.
You’re money also getting Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system, equipped with Apple CarPlay and a rearview camera, not to mention 20-inch wheels, HID headlights, and a rear spoiler to turn heads on the street.
Looking for something with more power? The 455-horsepower, V8-powered Camaro 1SS starts at $36,295. Compare that to the current Camaro SS, and that’s almost a $3,000 increase from 2015. Though, with all the new engineering behind it, it’s definitely worth it.
Among the assortment of performance employed is the drive mode selector. It alters throttle progression, steering response and feel, and stability control, as well as other systems, each optimized for Snow/Ice, Sport, and Tour modes.
Unfortunately, Chevrolet hasn’t dished out the details on the V6 that we drove a few months back, but we can expect it to start out somewhere in the low $30,000 range. Between four-cylinder and V8, is the V6. It pumps out 335 horsepower and 284 lb-ft torque, and does a solid job bridging the gap in performance offerings for the latest itteration of this iconic muscle car.
