RS models come standard with 20-inch wheels that are wider and lighter than before. This V6 RS rides on Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric all-season, run-flat rubber.

In photos, the 2016 Camaro doesn't look as differentiated from its predecessor as it does in person, where it's easier to appreciate its aggressive sheetmetal contours and subtle detailing.

The rear of the Camaro continues to have a fat, flat bumper look and narrow rectangular tail lights.
