11 Things About The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro You Need To Know

Could it be better than the new Mustang?

In less than one month from now, Chevrolet will reveal its all-new, sixth-generation Camaro. Up until now, we’ve seen spy shots and some pretty good renderings based on those test mule sightings. But before the Camaro's May 16 premiere in Detroit, GM Authority has compiled an excellent list of 10 things that we can expect to see come reveal day. In addition, we’ve added one more tid bit of newly learned information that’s not all that surprising.

1. Expect a new 3.6-liter V6 to premiere, producing around 355 hp and 287 lb-ft of torque. This is the same engine that’ll also power the 2016 Cadillac CT6, CTS, and ATS. 2. The LT1 Small-Block V8 will return. Buyers will have the option to have that wonderful 6.2-liter V8 in the new Camaro SS, replacing the current LS3. Expect for it to produce around 450 hp. 3. The new RWD Alpha platform, which also underpins the Cadillac ATS, will offer superior driving dynamics thanks to its smaller size and significant weight loss over the outgoing model’s old Zeta platform.

4. Speaking of weight loss, new Camaro will be "at least 200 pounds" lighter than the fifth-gen Camaro. 5. Partially because the new Camaro has shrunk in both size and weight, it’ll also offer much improved aerodynamics. 6. Performance will be improved throughout the Camaro range. That’s what happens when it’s lighter, more powerful, and more aerodynamic than before. In short, the sixth-gen Camaro will be an even better driver’s car. 7. Exterior styling will be more evolutionary than revolutionary. That’s not a bad thing at all.

8. The C7 Corvette Stingray’s Performance Data Recorder System will probably make its way to the Camaro as well, although in a more simplified version. 9. The entire Camaro lineup will offer 4G LTE WiFi capability. 10. Brembo brakes will once again be called upon as the stopping power of choice. 11. According to a new report from AutoGuide, a Camaro prototype was just spotted testing with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder under the hood. This is the same engine found in the ATS.
