Default 2016 Camaro Driving Fun Rooted in New Powertrains

First-ever turbo engine, new V-6 and return of LT1 V-8 matched with new Hydra-Matic 8-speed automatic transmissions and 6-speed manuals

DETROIT – 05.16.2015 – An all-new lineup of six powertrain combinations in the 2016 Camaro complements the car’s lighter, stronger structure to enable a faster, more nimble driving experience.

The lineup includes an Ecotec 2.0L turbo, a next-generation 3.6L V-6 and the LT1 6.2L V-8. The 3.6L offers an SAE-certified 335 horsepower (250 kW), giving it the segment’s highest specific output of any naturally aspirated V-6, while the LT1 is certified at 455 horsepower (339 kW) and 455 lb-ft of torque (617 Nm) – for the most powerful Camaro SS ever. The new engines are matched with six-speed manual transmissions and all-new eight-speed automatic transmissions.

The Ecotec 2.0L turbo will deliver 0-60 mph acceleration in less than 6 seconds and offer more than 30 mpg on the highway (GM-estimated), making it the most fuel-efficient Camaro ever.

“Everything about the 2016 Camaro is focused on a fun, engaging driving experience and that’s delivered with each of its new powertrains,” said Dan Nicholson, vice president, General Motors Global Powertrain. “From the first-ever turbocharged engine in a Camaro and an efficient V-6 with more power than many of the V-8s offered in previous generations, to the return of the LT1 small-block V-8, there is a choice to satisfy every taste and performance desire.”
