Chevrolet's 2016 Camaro may not look all-new at first glance, but it's a whole-cloth redo for one of America's most popular and storied performance cars.
The 2016 Camaro looks awfully familiar, but line it up next to last year's car and you'll see how much more crisply surfaced this car is.
This bright yellow paint is a $395 option.
The 2016 Camaro is 2.3 inches shorter overall and rides atop a 1.6-inch shorter wheelbase.
This is likely to become a familiar view to would-be rivals who challenge the Camaro SS at the drag strip.
This rear three-quarter view really shows off the Camaro bodyside's sinewy lower third.
Dead-on rear is arguably Camaro's least interesting view, with a very tall and flat bumper, and derivative narrow tail lamps giving it a chunky, squared-off look.
The Camaro's new headlamps can come with LEDs.
RS and SS models (the latter is shown here) receive LED tail lights with light tube accents.
The Camaro's young design team resurrected the car's tri-color emblem from earlier models.
Chevrolet's familiar bowtie logo remains one of the most recognized corporate symbols in all of autodom.
Until the inevitable range of higher-performance models surfaces, the SS trim is the top-performing 2016 Camaro extant.
For $895, Chevy will happily fit your Camaro with a dual-mode exhaust that has electronic baffles that open at high engine revs for better acoustics.
Behold, Chevrolet's latest 6.2-liter small-block V8. Dubbed LT1, it can also be found under the hood of the C7 Corvette. In this tune, it makes 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque.
The Camaro's trunk looks even smaller and shallower for 2016 than it did in last year's model.
The interior gets an overhaul too.
These 1SS seats are nicely comfortable and supportive. The seat fabric itself feels somewhat coarse, though grippy.
Note how high up the rear seat's bottom cushion sits. It's uncomfortably upright, and there's effectively zero headroom. Use this space for extra cargo room.
An eight-speed automatic transmission is also available, and it's even a little bit quicker, but the six-speed manual is a good unit and ultimately more engaging.
These oversized vent bezels neatly double as fan-speed and temperature control knobs. It's best to have big hands to operate them.
This higher-end model's instrument cluster smartly mixes analog gauges with an 8-inch reconfigurable color center screen.
GM's venerable OnStar telematics system is nicely integrated into this frameless rearview mirror.
Clean, simple iconography is a hallmark of Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system. Note the "Projection" button, which tips you off to its Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability.
A mixture of hard keys and touchscreen buttons keeps things simple.
MyLink incorporates voice integration with casual speech pattern recognition.
