Chevrolet’s been on a roll with trickling details into the news wire over the next-generation 2016 Camaro. For instance, they confirmed not too long ago that it’ll at least come with tires and brakes, the ideal apparatuses necessary for stopping, or even going anywhere as a matter of fact.
Now, Chevrolet has just confirmed the new Camaro will also come with some exhaust tips and an engine…or, a few choices for such.
The Camaro also comes with Chevy’s new Drive Mode Selector, offering Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport, and on SS versions, a Track setting, similarly to the latest Corvette Stingray.
For the first time ever, the Camaro SS will also be available with Magnetic Ride Control, which for the Camaro, was only available on the ZL1.
In addition to the new Drive Mode Selector, the Camaro will come with a 6.2L V8 as a choice and will extensively use aluminum to help reduce weight, according to a recent report from CARandDRIVER, who also received some more info regarding Chevy’s next pony car.
Either way, you can check out the latest press release below for the full beans from Chevrolet.
Advanced Tech Tailors 2016 Camaro Driving Experience
New Drive Mode Selector makes most of performance in multiple drive settings
DETROIT – New technologies in the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will enable drivers to tailor the car to the moment, whether it’s heading to work, touring the Pacific Coast Highway or lapping a road course.
“We wanted to build on the flexibility of the current Camaro ZL1, which is great for grand touring, commuting, the drag strip and track days,” said Aaron Link, Camaro lead development engineer. “The new Camaro will be even more adaptable, with up to eight vehicle attributes adjusted to fit a driver’s preference.”
As a result, the all-new Camaro will set the technological benchmark for the segment.
Most of the features can be changed via the new Drive Mode Selector, which includes Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport and – on SS models – Track settings. Calibrations for throttle progression, steering, stability control and more are optimized for each setting.
For the first time the Camaro SS will be available with Magnetic Ride Control, previously available only on the Camaro ZL1. The active damping system offers three preset programs – Tour, Sport and Track – that adjust the ride and handling balance. From there, it reads road and driver inputs at 1,000 times per second, and automatically adjusts the dampers for optimal performance.
Additionally, there is an enhanced dual-mode exhaust system. New electronically controlled valves can bypass the mufflers under spirited acceleration, delivering improved performance and greater sound levels. It also offers personalization options, from a “stealth” mode to a more aggressive “track” mode.
Chevrolet will introduce the all-new, 2016 Camaro on Saturday, May 16, during a special public event at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park.
