2016 Chevrolet Camaro 'visualizer'

A “visualizer” allows enthsiasts to preview how the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro would look with various options and accessories.

Ready to see your 2016 Chevrolet Camaro now? Chevrolet has an online “visualizer” that will allow users to select options and accessories installed on a 2016 Camaro. The visualizer can show a Camaro in ten standard exterior colors and five interior colors, plus accessories including wheels, ground effects, stripe packages and interior accents. When we tried building our own Camaro, the changes were slow, and in the alternate views we would have liked a high angle shot. Build your own 2016 Camaro here.

On a related note, Chevrolet continues to leak news on the 2016 Camaro. Now it’s price. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT will carry a base price of $26,695. At the other end, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS will come with a $37,295 price tag before options and accessories.

In addition to being a new generation, the 2016 Camaro will have a four-cylinder engine for the first time, an all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine rated at 275 horsepower. Chevy claims four will go 0-60 mph in less than six seconds and get more than 30 mpg on the highway. An all-new and more-powerful V-6 will be an option in the 2016 Camaro LT. The 3.6-liter V-6 produces an SAE-certified 335 horsepower with 284 lb-ft of torque. Chevy says it makes more horsepower per liter than any naturally aspirated V-6 in the segment.

Chevy says it will simplify the Camaro lineup for 2016 with the coupe and convertible body styles, offered in two models (the LT, and the SS, with the 426 horsepower V-8), and four trim levels—two each—the 1LT and 2LT, and the 1SS, and 2SS. Chevy has added a lot to the 1LT’s standard equipment list, including a drive mode selector, keyless access and pushbutton start, Wi-Fi. The RS trim package returns for 2016 with 20-inch wheels, a special grille and lots of LEDs.

The Camaro SS gets an all-new 6.2-liter LT1 V-8, with an SAE-certified at 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. It’s the most powerful Camaro SS in history…and more powerful than the Ford Mustang GT. Chevy says it’s not only faster in a straight line, improved handling combines with the added power to produce quicker lap times than the fifth-generation’s track-focused Camaro 1LE package.
