The Sixth-Generation Camaro Is Finally Here
It’s finally here. The most anticipated debut of the year. The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro was recently revealed on Belle Isle, with as much fanfare as America’s greatest pony car deserves.
What’s different this time around? Turns out, just about everything. According to the LA Times, the new Camaro “features an entirely new architecture.” In fact, it shares only two parts with the previous generation Camaro and both are cosmetic: the bow-tie emblem on the back and the SS badge.
Starting from the ground up gave Chevy room to produce a Camaro that is lighter and smaller. Engineers shaved about an inch from the height and width, as well as 2 inches from the length and wheelbase.
Chevy used the Alpha platform, which also underpins the Cadillac ATS and CTV. This makes for a stiffer structure and translates into better performance. Specifically, this platform produces better handling.
The sixth-generation Camaro comes in multiple trims. You can pick it up with a four, six, or eight cylinder engine. There are a variety of options for transmissions. And naturally, you can pick up a convertible Camaro or as a coupe.
