Automobile Magazine - 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Sneak Preview The basics: Moves to the Alpha chassis, but instead is on the same chassis as the CTS Expects the wheelbase to grow by 2.3 inches Expects a weight loss of "several hundred pounds" V6 and V8 options probably carry over, probably adds I4 Turbo power to compete with Mustang Bigger car leaves room for smaller sports coupe (ie, Code 130R or Tru 140S) Calling in on a '70s style evolution seems like a bit of a jump, but then again, we didn't expect the Mustang to stay so retro-styled going into this generation. Who's willing to bet that GM is still shopping around two or three different looks before kicking the concept out the door? As much as I'd hope for a more futuristic evolution in terms of style, it isn't as though a modernized version of the '70s model is that bad. As Jalopnik and others have rightly pointed out, that 2.0T engine will need a bit of a power bump if it is going to be considered a reasonable competitor to Ford's 2.3 EcoBoost. There was a rumor a while back that GM was looking to do a turbocharged version of the corporate 2.5L that's in damn-near everything... Perhaps this is the correct application to start? Otherwise, the V6 and V8 options are really of no surprise. I'd imagine the V6 would directly carry over from the current car, 315 BHP from that DOHC V6, not much more. The V8 will be an interesting choice, whether or not they cut some costs and stick with the LS3, or jump up to the LT1 and start rolling those things out. Keeping the car that big, despite the weight loss, seems to also indicate that the rumored SS Coupe isn't happening, and that the Camaro will continue to be the premium sports coupe (that isn't a Corvette) at Chevrolet. So, 3600lbs or so for the I4T and V6 models? The SS clocking in somewhere around 3700lbs? We'll have to see, I suppose. But, it leaves room for the Code 130R. I'd much rather see that over the Cruze-based Tru 140S. The small, rear-drive segment is apparently exploding, and if they're taking the Camaro upmarket, they'll need something on the low end to drive up sales and continue to take away from the development costs of the Alpha chassis. I'd still bank on that car getting the 2.5L 200 BHP I4, and then probably the 259 BHP 2.0T from the Regal GS. Only question is how cheap they'd make it versus the already reasonably priced Camaro. Exciting to see new Camaro stuff, but, ends up giving us more questions at this point. I suppose we'll see at Detroit in January?
