If there is ever or has ever been a car worthy of this kind of celebration it’s the Chevy Camaro.
Celebrating 50 years of perfection
Most people know the basic story of the Chevy Camaro. It was built in the late 1960s to directly compete with the Ford Mustang. In fact, early marketing materials for the car defined the word Camaro as, “A small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs.” Statements like this certainly helped feed a rivalry that didn’t need much in the way of encouragement. However, the results of working to keep the Camaro ahead of its competition is directly responsible of what can be seen today at Don Wheaton in the 2016 Chevy Camaro.
Lighter, stronger, faster
Without question, the 2016 Chevy Camaro available at Don Wheaton is the most technologically advanced version that has ever rolled off of a Chevy assembly line. During the development process, the automaker’s engineers and designers managed to shed a couple of hundred pounds from the weight of the car. This was done through new materials and new manufacturing methods. In fact, the 2016 Camaro, and future model years are now and will be world renowned for the incredible amount of downforce they create. Drivers will marvel at how grounded and stable the car feels when cornering in an aggressive manner.
2016 Camaro SS tops the tree
For the first production year of the Generation Six Camaro, the 2016 Camaro SS trim is something really special. Powering the 2016 Chevy Camaro SS is the same 6.2-liter, small block V-8 engine that was used with this year’s Corvette Stingray. Under the proper conditions, the car can produce an incredible 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. The 2016 version holds the distinction of being the most powerful Camaro SS ever produced.
