The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro confirmed to come with some bodywork and an engine hood

Chevrolet and GM are in this routine of trickling information about the new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro down the PR news wires.

So far, they confirmed the Camaro will at least come with some wheels, some brakes, an engine and some exhaust.

Now, they confirmed the Camaro also comes with some bodywork, like a new rear-spoiler, and a new engine hood.

“The Camaro went to the gym and came out with a lithe, more athletic physique for the sixth generation,” said Ed Welburn, vice president, GM Global Design. “It’s a more expressive evolution of the Camaro’s iconic character – and one that complements its leaner size and sharper reflexes.”

Not much is known about the sixth-gen Camaro, other than it’s all-new all around and will be lighter, thanks to extensive use of aluminum.

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is due for a reveal on May 16.

Sculpted Exterior Reflects 2016 Camaro’s New Athleticism

2015-04-30

DETROIT – For the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, the design team set out to create a leaner, more athletic design that complemented the new driving experience.

“The Camaro went to the gym and came out with a lithe, more athletic physique for the sixth generation,” said Ed Welburn, vice president, GM Global Design. “It’s a more expressive evolution of the Camaro’s iconic character – and one that complements its leaner size and sharper reflexes.”

The exterior design vocabulary is defined by complex shapes, which appear to be form-fitted around the mechanical components. Every shape and surface detail is a skilled, artistic collaboration of hand and digital sculpting.

Camaro’s new design details draw the eye into the design. For example, the new aluminum hood features powerful, smoothly curved sculpted forms accented with sharp creases. As a result, the hood appears to be shrink-wrapped around the engine.

Similarly, the new Camaro retains the broad, dramatic rear fenders that became a defining feature of the award-winning Gen 5 Camaro. The design is updated with greater detailing, including a subtle crease running parallel to the fender edge. The effect makes the new Camaro look even lower and wider despite having a slightly smaller footprint than its predecessor.

Chevrolet will introduce the all-new, 2016 Camaro on Saturday, May 16, during a special public event at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park.
