2016 Chevrolet Camaro Pricing and Online Configurator Now Available
We keep inching closer and closer to the release of the highly anticipated 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. Last month we saw the release of the order guide that gave us a glimpse of what features would be available on the refreshed muscle car. We’ve also heard the roar of two of its engines. Chevrolet originally gave an estimate of late August or early September for when ordering would open, and today’s pricing announcement and launch of an online configurator makes it look like orders could be open very soon.
The base model of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, the Camaro 1LT, will start at$26,695, and the Camaro SS will start at $37,295. The 2016 model will only have 2 models, the LT and SS, and four trim levels, the 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, and 2SS. Drivers will be able to choose between a 270 hp 2.0-liter turbo engine, a 330 hp 3.6-liter V6 engine, or a 455 hp 6.2-liter V8 engine to power their new ride. The turbo engine seems to be offered so that there is a slightly more fuel efficient option to compete with the 2016 Ford Mustang with EcoBoost.
What Will You Do While You Wait For the New Camaro? Take some time to relax and tailgate with these tips
The pricing for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT is lower than the same trim level of the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro and comes standard with usual options like Chevrolet MyLink with Apple CarPlay capability, Driver Mode Selector with Snow/Ice, OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot, a color screen for the infotainment system, and automatic climate control standard. With more drivers able to afford more technology in their new ride, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is shaping up to be a pretty exciting car.
The Online Configurator isn’t quite as detailed as the online build simulators currently available for the rest of the Chevrolet lineup, but it lets users get an idea of what their dream 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will look like. You can choose between the coupe and convertible, then choose your trim level, interior materials and colors, and, of course, the paint job that will turn heads as you drive around town.
Humble Beginnings: Watch the original unveiling of the 2016 Camaro
It’s a good thing that the configurator was launched on a Friday so you don’t have to feel so guilty about spending part of your day building your perfect Chevrolet Camaro and daydreaming about it. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro should start arriving in dealerships later this year, with the convertible rolling out early in 2016.
