2016 Chevrolet Camaro: The Future of American Muscle
We don't yet know a lot of details about the new Chevy Camaro, but we do know that we can't wait to learn more. We fully expect this to be the best Camaro yet, building on a nearly 50-year history of style and innovation.
One of the priorities that Chevy designers identified for the new Camaro is to improve its handling as well as its fuel economy. The muscle car has been long known for power, not its eco-friendly output. One solution for meeting that goal has been to put the Camaro on a diet -- figuratively speaking, of course.
The beefy muscle car will be a bit leaner, dropping 200 pounds for a curb weight of about 3,500 pounds. That will help it be more agile on the road while also using up less gas. The new Camaro owes much of its weight loss and purported improved handling to the new Alpha platform, which will use some aluminum parts.
We haven't been able to get a clear glimpse of the new Camaro yet, but some spy shots have been released of the car in a camouflage wrap. From those pictures, we can tell that the new Camaro has a shorter wheelbase, deeply recessed head lights, a split upper grille, rear spoiler and a sleek roofline.
We won't get the full picture for the new Camaro until it is unveiled on May 16 in Detroit.
Innovating Performance and Efficiency
Chevrolet has built a reputation on producing vehicles that are strong and fast. Whether we're talking about muscle cars like the Camaro or the Corvette or heavy-duty trucks like the Tahoe or the Silverado, Chevrolet has always created high-performance vehicles.
The Corvette Z06 is a notable standout. The latest model has a powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine that can produce an astonishing 650 horsepower and 650 pounds per feet of torque. You can take the car from 0 to 60 in just 3 seconds.
That's the kind of power that can make you feel like a king on the road. The Corvette Z06 is the kind of car that would be right at home on a race track, but you can drive it to the office to make your normal life seem even more exciting.
The Camaro Z/28 is another standout. The newest Camaro has ditched the 1980s styling in favor of the styling of the 1960s' models. It looks a lot beefier and more intimidating on the road.
What's under the hood matches the tough facade. the Camaro Z/28 has a 7.0-liter V8 engine and a six-speed manual transmission. It has 505 horsepower and a unique suspension system that lets it grip the terrain and take turns tightly. You can hit 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and leave an impressive trail of dust in your wake.
These are just a couple of the impressive performance models in Chevy's history. Visit your local Chevy dealer and you'll discover even more options.
Reinventing the Pickup Truck
Of course, Chevrolet also has a strong reputation for its pickup trucks. It is among the three most popular truck brands, battling it out with Ford and Dodge. (Of course, we know who the real winner is.)
Two of the most popular Chevy truck models are the 2015 Silverado and the 2015 Colorado.
The Silverado was introduced in 1999, and it is now in its third generation. Over the past 16 years, Chevy has only improved upon the model. The Silverado was completely redesigned for the introduction of the third generation last year.
It received a new high-strength steel frame, hydroforming technology, and a lighter-weight body thanks to the use of aluminum on some parts and roll-formed steel in the bed. The interior included features like USB hookups, a premium audio system, OnStar technology, and a MyLink interface system.
Engine choices included a 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6, 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8, or 6.2-liter EcoTec 3 V8. For 2015, the 6.2-liter EcoTec 3 V8 came with an eight-speed 8L90 transmission for better performance an fuel efficiency.
The Chevy Colorado was introduced only in 2004, but it has already become a solid part of the Chevy line. This midsize pickup truck has made its mark for dependability and affordability.
The second and current generation was introduced in 2012 with a regular cab, extended cab or crew cab options. It offered DX, LX, LT and LTZ trim levels, including features such as steel wheels, side-curtain air bags, fog lamps, side steps, a tonneau cover and more. The 2015 model has a 3.6-liter LFX V6 engine that gets 305 horsepower and 270 pounds per feet of torque.
Coming Soon: The Fully Electric Chevy Bolt
The Chevy Volt has been a popular eco-friendly vehicle, but the company is about to up its game by introducing the fully electric "Bolt." We expect it to hit the market like a bolt of lightning when it finally goes on sale.
The Chevy Bolt promises to have an electric range of 200 miles, which would rival the luxury Tesla Model S. However, it won't have the $70,000 price tag of the Tesla. Instead, you'll be able to buy it for the bargain price of $38,000.
Tax credits could bring the price down even lower.
The Bolt is only a concept right now, but the preview shots show a bold orange exterior with a thick bumper and LED head lights, with a hint of the BMW i3 and the Honda Fit combined. Inside, there are two LED screens for controlling media, as well as a touchscreen dash. You can use an app or the push button to start the car.
There is no confirmed release date for the Bolt, but some insiders say it could be ready to go by 2017.
Whether you are looking for the next electric vehicle or want a powerful pickup, your local Chevy dealer can offer it. Come in to Miami Lakes Chevrolet today to learn more about the exceptional lineup that Chevy has to offer.
