Redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Will Come with 4-Cylinder Turbo Engine

2015 will be the last model year for the current generation of Camaro. For the next generation, which starts at 2016, the Camaro will be build on the GM Alpha platform which the current Cadillac CTS is also using.

By using the new platform, it is expected that the 2016 Camaro will lose several hundred pounds of weight when compared to the current generation. For your reference, the 2015 Camaro with V6 engine has a curb weight of 3700lb+, which makes it almost as heavy as some mid-size RWD luxury sedans.

But the biggest news is that the 2016 Camaro will offer a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. If you think it too be odd to have a 4-cylinder engine in an American muscle car, please note that the 2015 Mustang also has a 4-cylinder engine option. Since the Mustang has such choice, obviously there is no reason for Camaro not doing this.

At this moment there is no information of the engine’s output, but we will follow it closely and report back once we hear something.
