Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 4/20/2015 Conner Golden

Another new teaser from GM indicates the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be a capable and driver focused sports car. New for the sixth-generation Camaro, the V-8-powered Camaro SS comes standard with a host of driver aids and standard performance features.

Research

For 2016, the Chevrolet Camaro SS comes with optiona; magnetic ride control, previously only available on a Camaro if you purchased the high-performance ZL1. GM has introduced MagneRide technology to its entire performance lineup, including the Corvette, Cadillac CTS-V, and Chevrolet SS. This, coupled with a 200-pound weight loss, should help keep the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro on par with the 2015 Ford Mustang GT in terms of handling prowess.

These settings modify throttle mapping, steering, stability control, and traction control.

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS also features a dual-mode exhaust system, with electronically actuated exhaust valves. The valves open under hard acceleration, improving performance and increasing the exhaust sound. The driver can tailor the valve operation to his or her liking, from a raucous open mode, or a quiet closed mode for when you don’t want to be the center of attention.

The 2016 Camaro should make quite the racket, considering the Corvette-derived powertrain. The 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 is estimated to push out between 430 and 450 hp, right on top of the 435-hp 2015 Mustang GT. The 2016 Camaro is also expected to be offered with a 3.6-liter V-6, and a turbocharged four-cylinder.

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro makes its official debut at a public event on Belle Isle on May 16.
