The 2016 Chevy Camaro is getting ready to launch. As the wave of the flag draws near, Chevrolet is releasing the pricing details along with an online tool that allows drivers to design their very own custom Camaro. The all-new Camaro comes with plenty of standard features along with a bunch of customizable options.
“The all-new 2016 Camaro builds on what made the Camaro the segment leader for five years. It will reset the bar in the segment with even greater levels of performance, new technologies not found on any other car in the segment, and more choices that enable customers to take personalization farther than ever before,” says Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager.
Chevrolet is simplifying the Camaro lineup to only LT and SS models in 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, and 2SS trims with both coupe and convertible body style options. The base 1LT Camaro will start at $26,695 with the most powerful Camaro ever, the SS, starting at $37,295 for the 1SS model.
“The 1LT trim level has long been one of the most popular for Camaro. We expect it will be even more popular as the 2016 Camaro 1LT is priced less than the 2015 model and offers significantly more standard features and technologies,” says Christensen.
The new standard features include Apple CarPlay, keyless access with push-button start, a rear vision camera, and LED daytime running lights. All models will also come standard with Driver Mode Selector, which comes with Snow/Ice, Tour, and Sport modes. The SS also gets a Track mode.
The customization really shines in the visual options available on the Camaro. There are three aluminum wheel designs with multiple finishes, grille kits, six body-color inserts that are also available in chrome-appearance or primed versions, 10 different body color options, four exterior graphics packages, and multiple colors for the interior kit. Whew.
“There’s practically no such thing as a factory-stock Camaro and Chevrolet understands how important customization is to owners. The wide range of personalization options offers customers unprecedented choices for tailoring their Camaro. The range of features, colors and other options ensures that customers will be able to build a Camaro quite unlike any other. Better still, these accessories can be installed at the dealership during the purchase process, allowing customers to hit the street in a customized Camaro the moment they take delivery,” says Christensen.
The Camaro coupe models with V6 and V8 engines will be racing into dealerships before the end of the year. The rest of the models will be available in the beginning of 2016.
