    Please don't put a 4 cylinder motor in this car. It would ruin any integrity that has been established by Chevrolet. We need to think more out of the box. Have you considered the possibility of the use of the e-assist engine in this vehicle to enhance the fuel economy as well as boost the power output.

      I got a Chevy Volt and fully tested it for EMF's. It does not put out any more EMF's than my gas car. Maybe even a little less.

    Yes, Please slim down the 2016 camaro (less weight and definitly make it about 3 inches narrower. By making it smaller, it will handle and corner alot better. This will also incease mpg without reducing power. Keep the same general design as the 2013 (love the side profile). If GM does this I will be the first one in line to buy.
