It all started in September 29th of 1966 when the ’67 Camaro first went on sale. That was the start of the first generation of the American pony car and now we come to the sixth generation car.
Since the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was announced fans of the performance machine have been chomping at the bit to drive one. For those able to pay the price of admission the wait is nearly over as shipments have started of the latest model to dealerships.
The new Chevy will start to appear in showrooms in mid-November. So, in just a few weeks we will start to see them cruising the streets.
“It is an exciting day for everyone involved in bringing the new Camaro from a concept to the assembly line,” said Mike Trevorrow, Lansing regional plant manager. “As the transporters head out to dealerships across the country, the hard work and pride of everyone at Lansing Grand River Assembly goes with them.”
The 2016 Camaro starts at $26,695 for the 1LT and $37,295 for the 1SS. The new generation has three engine options that range from a four-cylinder power plant all the way up to a strong V8.
The base car features a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that puts out 275 horsepower. This helps the base model launch from 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds.
The next option is a 3.6-liter V6 offering 335 horsepower. The V6 lowers the 0-60 mph time to 5.1 seconds.
The SS is the car that enthusiasts will dream of. Powered by a 455 horsepower LT1 6.2-liter V8, the most powerful Camaro SS ever. It has the ability to launch from 0-60 mph in just 4.0 seconds.
Each engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. Both options help get all the available power to the rear engine and will help many kill some tires.
