$26,695 for Base Model, $37,295 for 1SS Model
Chevrolet is launching the configurator for the 2016 Camaro, complete with pricing, options, accessories and pretty pictures.
The starting MSRP for sixth-generation Camaro? $26,695, which is almost $3,000 more than what the base 2015 Camaro is asking for. However, the 2016 Camaro begins in 1LT trim, while the fifth-gen Camaro began at a more spartan LS trim. What’s more, the 2016 Camaro 1LT is actually more affordable than the 2015 Camaro 1LT, while delivering a lot more content for the money. These features include Chevrolet MyLink with Apple CarPlay connectivity (Android Auto will come later), 8-way driver and 6-way passenger power-adjusting seats, a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, push-button start and more.
Under the hood of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT will be a 2.0L LTG turbocharged engine with 275 horsepower. Available is the new 3.6L LGX V6 with a best-in-class 335 hp and 284 foot-pounds of torque.
Opt for the RS package, and the 2016 Camaro gets fitted with 20-inch aluminum wheels, High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps with LED signature lamps, LED taillamps, unique grille inserts and a rear spoiler.
Of course, we can’t go without talking about the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Split between 1SS and 2SS trims, the 455 horsepower fun-haver is loaded or available with track-focused goodies such as cooling systems for the diff, transmission and engine oil, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 (run flat) tires, an LSD and Active Rev Matching for six-speed manual-equipped models, heads up display, dual mode exhaust, magnetic dampers, and a Brembo brake set. Meanwhile, the interior is saturated with far more technology, creature comforts and personalization options than before.
Launch accessories are to include:
- Three aluminum wheel designs, in multiple finishes
- Grille kits with six body-color inserts for LT and SS models; inserts are also available in chrome-appearance or primed versions for custom painting
- A blade-style rear spoiler and a ground effects kit, each offered in 10 colors
- Four exterior graphics packages, offered in multiple colors, including a body-side “spear” design; rally stripe design; front-fender “hash mark” design; and a racing stripe design
- Interior trim kits, offered in multiple colors, including knee pads and door accent trim
- Based on the 2016 Camaro model and trim selected, customers can also select alternate-finish versions of existing features such as smoked taillamp lenses and blacked-out or LED-illuminated Chevrolet bowtie emblems.
To boil it down, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will launch in coupe and convertible forms, each with 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, and 2SS trim levels. For more on the 2016 Camaro, have a read on our initial driving impressions.
