Chevrolet Camaro is one of the most popular cars in the world and Chevy is quite aware of this fact. They have been consistently releasing one information after another about the upcoming 2016 Chevrolet Camaro so as to keep the audience on their heels before the big reveal.
Building the right level of anticipation and delivering a product that exceeds expectations is the best way to make the launch successful. The manufacturer has been doing it right so far. Recently, they have revealed some more information about the car. The all new Camaro is going to weigh a lot less than its earlier models. The basic variant of the car will weigh at least 390 pounds lesser than the previous launch while the high end V8 SS variant will weigh 223 pounds lighter.
The car will be powered by a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine and with it having lost so much weight, it is obvious that it will be one of the fastest cars on the road without compromising on its stability. The engineers confirmed that they have managed to shave so much off its basic weight by using the Alpha modular platform. When combined with lightweight materials and futuristic production techniques, it is possible to make the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro weigh much less, giving complete control to the driver like never before.
Sources also added that even though the car weighs less and is supposed to be lightweight, it is built on a chassis that is 28 percent stiffer which provides it the much needed stability and grip on the road. Chevrolet has invested a considerable sum in Camaro’s production to make this impossible feat possible. They have used aluminum to aluminum bonding technology to make the car look as if it was constructed from a single plate than multiple parts assembled together.
By avoiding traditional welding methods, the manufacturer has created a car that features a fluid design, weighs less, yet, has a strong chassis. With these elements in place, it is no surprise that the car achieves great fuel efficiency with formidable top speed and acceleration. According to the team, their engineers not only spent time in the design and the chassis, but have also looked at minor elements like the suspension bolts to cut the threaded area, reducing weight, wherever possible.
We do expect to receive more impressive details about the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro in the coming days before its formal launch. Stay tuned with us.
