The 2016 Camaro at McCluskey Chevy




Surprisingly efficient, especially for a muscle car, the new Camaro is showing off a more svelte frame, having dropped 200 pounds from its former stature. Thanks to this weight decrease, the new Camaro is now lighter – obviously, but that contributes to its improved efficiency and aerodynamic prowess.

Outfitted with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine – the standard operation in the 2016 Camaro – is able to produce 275 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Of course, you have the option of flexing a bit more muscle, courtesy of the available 3.6-liter engine, generating 335 horsepower and 284 lb.-ft. of torque.

Chevy, as you know, is all about options and the body style of this year’s Camaro is your starting point. Available as either a coupe or convertible, you have even more choices to make with respect to trim level, and if heart-racing horsepower is your goal, the 1SS and 2SS trims feature the 6.2-liter V8 engine, which is responsible for ripping up the roadways with 455 horsepower and matching torque.

All three engines are paired to a standard six-speed manual transmission, but an optional eight-speed automatic transmission, with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters is also available.

With respect to efficiency from these powertrains, the 2016 Chevy Camaro proves that it is just full of surprises. Astonishingly enough, considering that w are talking about a performance machine, the V6 engine, manually operated, returns 21 mpg combined, or 18 city and 27 highway miles per gallon. As an automatic, the V8 rates at 20 mpg combined, 17 city, 28 highway. Manually equipped instead, expect fuel figures measured at 19 mpg combined, or 16 city and 25 highway.

Of course, American muscle car enthusiasts generally don’t care about fuel efficiency, that is, until they’re at the pump. This year’s redesign on the Camaro is impressive for its real world fuel economy. But we know that those of you even considering a Camaro are more interested in the feel of its power.

According to Edmunds’ performance testing, the 2016 Camaro dominates the zero to sixty mph dash in 4.1 seconds and tops out at speeds of 155 miles per hour. Just reading that gets our pulses pounding…

After you’ve determined whether you’re a champion of the coupe or convertible, and after you’ve picked out your powertrain and favorite trim, the fun really begins. Like we said, Chevy is all about options, and so it’s not surprising that your choices will extend to include considerations about color – ten for the exterior, five for the interior – wheels, ground effects, grilles, stripes, interior details, and package or individual add-ons.

Be prepared to lose some quality time tinkering with GM’s Camaro Configurator on Chevy’s website. By lose, of course, we mean invest. After all, you want your new Camaro to signal your arrival, and as such, it should represent some aspect of your personal style, your signature.

Extra backup comes courtesy of Chevy’s own OnStar Guidance plan, complimentary for six months, and featuring OnStar Automatic Crash Response.

Don’t Take Our Word For It…

We’re not the only ones totally pumped about this year’s Camaro. In fact, it’s getting borderline ridiculous the number of awards that this one car is racking up already. Between awards for reliability and resale value, and J.D. Power’s recognition for dependability – four years in a row – it’s easy to see why Motor Trend has already bestowed the honor of “Car of the Year” upon the 2016 Chevy Camaro.


Cornering the Competition at McCluskey Chevy




When it first came out, the Camaro was in direct competition with Ford’s Mustang. When asked about the meaning of the word, “Camaro,” Chevy execs claimed the definition as a “beast that eats Mustangs.” The Camaro’s robust and aggressive exterior certainly looks as though it could make quick work of Ford’s filly, but we’ve got them all corralled on the lot at McCluskey Chevy.
