The greatest Chevrolet Camaro ever made may just be hitting the streets, but Chevy is already looking forward to its successor, the sixth-generation Camaro. Though details are few and far between, buried in a press release listing the updates to the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro, the automaker noted that this model year will be the last for fifth-gen Camaro.

While the only change to the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro is a new paint color (Blue Velvet Metallic, whatever that means), changes to the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro should be major. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will ride on GM's rear-drive Alpha platform, which currently underpins the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS. Both the ATS and CTS are incredibly dynamic cars, so the new Camaro should be lighter and more fun to drive than the out-going model. The next-gen Camaro will likely be powered by a carryover 3.6-liter V-6 base engine (possibly with more than the 323 hp currently available), with the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray's new LT1 6.2-liter V-8 producing 455 hp powering the Camaro SS.

GM is keeping meaningful details on the sixth-generation 2016 Chevrolet Camaro tightly under wraps, but given the updated Hellcat-powered 2015 Dodge Challenger, and the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang, the Camaro has its work cut out for it if it hopes to retain its pony car sales crown.
