Even if only one month separates us from the official unveiling of the 2016 CamaroChevrolet details some architecture details of the new car, trying to make us understand that 70% of the new generations are designed from scratch.
 
In fact, only two parts carry over from the fifth-generation model: the bowtie emblem on the taillamp panel and the SS badge. The Gen 6 Camaro is based on General Motors’ Alpha architecture.
 
The front structure was developed specifically for Camaro. It is lengthened, to create the dash-to-axle ratio necessary for car’s iconic profile, and widened to provide the desired track width for stable, confident cornering. In addition, 20 percent of the 6.2L LT1 V-8 engine has been tailored to fit the Camaro’s packaging, including new, tubular “tri-Y” style exhaust manifolds.
 

Chevrolet
will introduce the all-new, 2016 Camaro on Saturday, May 16, during a special public event at Detroit’s Belle Isle park.
 
“Our global engineering team is incredibly passionate about Camaro, and they sweated all the details to make Gen 6 the best Camaro we could possibly put into the hands of our customers. Alpha provided a strong foundation, but more than 70 percent of the components are unique to the Gen 6 Camaro, including exterior and interior dimensions, an all-new interior, front and rear suspension, and powertrain components”, said Mark Reuss, GM executive vice president, Global Product Development.
 
The new 6.2L LT1 V-8 engine can be heard in the new GM video below.
