Only the other day the spy photos we showed off the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro the brand new coupe, captured testing up-close by the brave spy shooter. These photos threw light on some of the style changes which had been meted to the new Camaro that we had never witnessed before. These were substantiated by the aerial shots enabled to determine the size of the car.
Photos can explain what thousands of words cannot, but videos go up a notch further. A footage of the car tearing around Nürburgring tracks in Germany which also allowed us to listen to the Maro’s small block V-8 engine’s music. The V-8 of the present sounds very similar to the new V-8 in this car as we heard in the video but do not be fooled by that because it is the General Motors small block V-8 of the fifth generation which is producing the music. The engine was first entered into the Chevy Silverado, Chevrolet Corvette, and GMC Sierra and in different degrees of tuning and displacements, and the 6.2 liter LS3 engine of the current Camaro will be taken up by the LT4 small-block engine.
The induction of the fresh generation V-8 must bring better fuel economy and vastly improved performance and perhaps the addition of the Displacement on Demand cylinder deactivation aspect of GM. For the lower specification Camaro, the V-6 might remain standard whereas the high performing iterations such as the ZL1 might come back with LT4 supercharged engines. We also expect that a turbocharged 4-cylinder mind make an appearance in the near future. Overall we would like to say here that we are eagerly waiting to drive the new Camaro and also pit the vehicle against the Ford Mustang of 2015, freshly introduced, to see how it stands against it.
