The 6th generation of Chevrolet Camaro was introduced in 2015 and began production as a 2016 model year car.

History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Chevrolet Camaro (sixth generation) page on 31 July 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is a pony car produced by Chevrolet that was first revealed to the public on May 16, 2015. Sales started in 2015 for the 2016 model year. The sixth-gen Camaro now utilizes the GM Alpha platform shared with the Cadillac ATS and CTS and features MacPherson struts in front, rather than the former Multi-link setup. General Motors claims that 70 percent of architectural components in the new Camaro are unique to the car.

Like its predecessor, the sixth-gen Chevrolet Camaro is available in coupe and convertible bodystyles. Compared to the previous generation, it is 2.3 in (58 mm) shorter, 0.8 in (20 mm) less wide and 1.1 in (28 mm) shorter in height. With similar equipment and engine, it is also more than 200 lb (91 kg) lighter.

Trim levels introduced at launch include 1LT, 2LT, 1SS and 2SS. Standard equipment on all trims includes automatic air conditioning, cruise control, tilt/telescoping steering-wheel, satellite radio, parking assist and seven airbags.

A ZL1 trim level with a supercharged 6.2 L V8 will be available for the 2017 model year and will feature a lower grill opening for improved cooling, a new front splitter and a carbon hood insert which removes hot air from the engine compartment. It also features wider front fenders for improved handling, unique rockers and Magnetic Ride suspension. Transmission choices are a rev matching six-speed manual or a new 10-speed automatic. The ZL1 laps the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7 minutes 23.77 seconds, outpacing likes of the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R and the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren; it is claimed to reach as fast as 193 mph (310 km/h) after accelerating from 0–62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds and 0–124 mph (200 km/h) in 17.1 seconds.
