Is the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro not enough car for you?
Not to worry as General Motors just released details for a new line of performance parts and accessories for the standard 2016 Camaro.
The extra parts and bits include a performance-optimized air intake, a performance exhaust system, beefier Brembo brakes for the front with the choice of either four- or six-piston aluminum clamps, and even a sports suspension that’s stiffer and reduced ride height by nearly one inch.
There is also a range of body enhancements, including “ground-effects” like lower spoilers for all the body panels, and upgradable rear spoiler, and even an illuminated bow tie logo.
Chevy also made sure not to leave out the graphics, which can be added to your Camaro, with the possibility of gaining some extra horsepower. The interior can be also be turned up with various trim kits, while customers can also choose from various sets of custom wheels.
CHEVY INTRODUCES CAMARO ACCESSORIES, PERFORMANCE PARTS
Broad range of components designed to enhance personalization and driving fun
DETROIT – As the all-new Gen Six Camaro rolls into showrooms this fall, Chevrolet is matching its introduction with accessories and performance parts that enable greater personalization and driving fun.
From performance air intake and exhaust systems, to lowering kits, ground-effects packages, spoilers and even performance Brembo® brake systems, the lineup is designed to offer customers choices for distinguishing their new Camaros on the street and making the most of the cars’ performance capabilities.
“These accessories and parts were designed, engineered and tested by our Camaro team, assuring proper fit and integration – and they are backed by Chevrolet,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.
The roster of 2016 Camaro performance parts includes:
Performance exhaust – Kits will be available late this year for Camaro SS with the LT1 V-8 and Camaro LT with the 3.6L V-6. These axle-back systems enhance the performance sound of the Camaro and offer a premium appearance. Each is a direct replacement for the factory system and maintains the vehicle’s factory warranty. The kits are not compatible with the available dual-mode exhaust system.
Suspension lowering kits – Incorporating higher-rate front and rear coil springs, along with specifically tuned struts and shocks, theses kits are designed to provide an integrated package that provides an aggressive stance by lowering the vehicle up to 0.8-inch (20mm), while optimizing ride quality and vehicle performance. They also deliver a lower center of gravity that enhances the feeling of responsiveness. Four kits are tailored for LT and SS coupe and convertible models. The SS kits are not compatible with vehicles equipped with the available Magnetic Ride Control. They will be available in early 2016.
Brembo® performance front brake package (four-piston calipers) – Developed as an upgrade for Camaro LT models with the 2.0L Turbo and 3.6L V-6 engines, this kit features Brembo® four-piston aluminum calipers in red with performance brake pads and 13.6-in. x 1.2-in. (345mm x 30mm) vented and slotted Duralife™ rotors – the same size as the Camaro SS. The kit is a direct replacement for the original front brakes and includes low-expansion front brake hoses and all necessary hardware.
Brembo® performance front brake package (six-piston calipers) – Developed for the enthusiast looking for ultimate braking performance while maintaining street drivability. This Brembo® front brake system features six-piston monoblock aluminum calipers in red with performance brake pads and two-piece, 14.6-in. x 1.3-in. (370mm x 34mm) vented and slotted Duralife™ rotors (cast-iron braking rings with aluminum hats). This kit is available for all Gen Six Camaro models and includes low-expansion front brake hoses and all necessary hardware.
Performance air intake – This kit, available in early 2016, helps reduce air restriction and includes a reusable open-element air filter, a sealed compartment with all the necessary installation hardware for the Camaro SS with the LT1 V-8.
Engine covers – These stylish, easily installed covers give the Camaro engine a show-quality appearance. They will be available by the end of the year in red, blue or black for the V-8 and V-6 engines and a cover for the 2.0L Turbo engine is planned as well.
These performance parts complement a full line of Camaro accessories including wheels, exterior and interior enhancements and graphics packages.
Three aluminum wheel designs, in multiple finishes
Grille kits with six body-color inserts for LT and SS models; inserts are also available in chrome-appearance or primed versions for custom painting
A blade-style rear spoiler and ground effects kit, each offered in 10 colors
Four exterior graphics packages, offered in multiple colors, including,” rally stripe,” front-fender “hash mark,” racing stripe designs and a body-side “spear” graphic
Interior trim kits, offered in multiple colors.
Customers can also select alternate-finish versions of existing features such as smoked taillamp lenses and blacked-out or LED-illuminated bowtie emblems.
Customers can view many of the accessories on the new Camaro using the online Camaro Visualizer.
“There’s almost no limit to the performance and personalization possibilities with the 2016 Camaro,” said Campbell.
