Chevy hit a home-run when they re-introduced the Camaro a few years back. With its innovative design, race-car like performance, and affordable price point it was the hottest new car on the streets. With seven years under its belt Chevy decided it was time for some tweaks and the newly designed Camaro is soon to be on its way to dealerships.

Chevrolet could have done a complete overhaul but made the smart move by simply playing with the lines and improving the performance. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Good job Chevy. The 2016 Camaro improved slightly on the already sleek appearance of the car while reducing the weight which means more speed and that’s always a good thing.

The 2016 Camaro has three drive-train options. The first is the 2.0L Turbo which comes equipped with 275 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque which makes for some serious response. The second option is the 3.6L V6 which is 335 hp and 284 lb.-ft. of torque with direct injection, variable valve timing, and active fuel management on the 8-speed automatic. Last but not least is the beastly 6.2L V8. With 455 hp and 455 lb.-ft. of torque generated, this thing powers the classic SS like nobody’s business; easily making it one of the most powerful cars on the road. For those of you that enjoy driving with the top down, the convertible model is as nice as ever with a one-touch top down at up to 30 mph.

One of the most impressive improvements is the upgraded cockpit, which is no surprise as Chevy has been killing it on the interiors as of late. This thing is a full command center and you can get a lap-timer gauge if you decide to go with the SS. But if you’re not the racing type there’s still plenty of tech available including an optional full-screen navigation system that is sure to get you anywhere you need to go. Also available is 4G LTE Wi-Fi, regardless of where you’re driving. Yes, that means high speed road trips without having to miss an e-mail. Other options include two-tone interiors like fire-red and even more impressive is the stunning ceramic white

. With these improvements we’re looking at a more powerful, more responsive Camaro with some serious juice under the hood. Add to that, the fact that this classic starts at about $23,000 and it looks like Chevy knocked it out of the park once more.
