2016 Camaro Pricing Announced!


As popular as the fifth-gen Camaro was, and still is, many enthusiasts can’t wait until the new car finally arrives for 2016. Although there has been some some skepticism regarding a four cylinder Camaro, many others are quite enticed by the fact that the new car will faster, lighter and feature a GEN-V V8 from its SS model.

However, with each avaialbe trim package and engine option there will be various levels of price points. The entry-level, four-cylinder car will ring in with a very entry-level price of $26,965 – or roughly three-thousand more than what a comparable 2015 version of the same car cost with the LFX V6.

While some might say that was quite a jump in base price, it should be noted that the new base model Camaro will be sold as standard with LT-level luxuries and convenience features. This will include features such as, 8-way driver and 6-way passenger power-adjusting seats, a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, push-button start, Chevrolet MyLink with Apple CarPlay connectivity and it has been said that Android Auto will come sometime in the future.

But that’s just the entry-level car, if you want something more midrange and a bit more powerful than the 275hp 2-liter turbo, you could spec the brand new, 335 hp(!) 3.6L LGX V6, that brings not only more power and punch, but a level of smoothness and more power potential (in the inevitable event that you strap a turbo or two, to it).

If you want your Camaro to have “RS” written on it, you’ll also get 20-inch aluminum wheels, HID headlights, LED taillights and signature lamps, rear spoiler and a more pronounced from grille. It’s a package that available for all Camaros, whether you opt for the turbocharged LTG, V6 LGX or the Big Daddy (for now) 455 hp LT1!

Packing the aforementioned GEN-V SBC, the Super Sport starts at $37,295 for the 1SS, the basic SS that gets you all of the performance with a minimal amount of frills as possible. The more options you add, the more your Camaro will cost.

Our advise? Spec out a solid roof 1SS without the RS package, and strap on a Magnuson blower. Bring it all in with a carefully-selected group of parts from Chevrolet Performance, Baer or Wilwood brakes, and a suspension upgrade from one of our friends in the aftermarket, and spend your free time slaying GT350s.
