2016 Chevy Camaro Drops Some Camo in Spy Photos

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has shed some of its camouflage, revealing more details than ever before.

The American automaker has begun track testing its next-generation Camaro and has dropped most of its camo, giving us our first look at the newly designed front and rear ends. Even more surprising is that Chevy is testing a high-performance variant of the Camaro rather than the base model as is evident by its quad-tip exhaust, larger wheels, a trunk lid spoiler and what appears to be vents on either side of the hood.

This hints that Chevy may be using the same formula with its new 2016 Camaro as it did with the Corvette Stingray, expediting the development and rollout of other variants like the Corvette Z06. Visually, the 2016 Camaro is a bit more aggressive and muscular with a lower roofline than the current model.

The next-generation Camaro will benefit from GM’s lighter Alpha chassis that currently underpins the Cadillac ATS and CTS models. Expect six- and eight-cylinder engines to be available but don’t be surprised if Chevy also adds a turbocharged four-cylinder to its lineup, similar to the 2015 Ford Mustang.

    This is not the new 2016 Camaro. It is a test mule nothing more. The new car will be completely redesigned in and out. Do you honestly think Chevy would use a 10-year old design (concept car notwithstanding) on the all-new car? I think not. For one the highly criticized low roof is history. Every Chevy that has been downsized since 1977 might have had some styling elements of a previous generation, but was still, always, all new, not a shortened copy. How could you believe this the the all-new Camaro?

    That’s half ’05 GTO and half ’05 Mustang. Yuck.
