2016 Chevy Camaro is 28 Percent Stiffer

The slow drip of information on the 2016 Chevy Camaro continues. 

GM says that the new Camaro is 28 percent stiffer than the current car and we already know that it will be about 200 lbs lighter than its predecessor. Chevy says that the more rigid body along with the weight loss has allowed them to better tune the car’s steering and has allowed them to reduce unsprung weight.

The result is a lighter, stiffer structure that benefits every aspect of the driving experience.”

Chevrolet will reveal the 2016 Camaro on Saturday, May 16, during a public event at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park.
