The design goal for the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was to create a leaner, more athletic design that complemented a new driving experience.
Camaro’s new design details include a new aluminum hood with powerful, smoothly curved sculpted forms accented with sharp creases. As a result, the hood appears to be shrink-wrapped around the engine.
On the other end, the new Camaro will retain the distinctive, broad rear fenders that became a trademark styling element of the current generation.
The exterior design vocabulary is defined by complex shapes, which appear to be form-fitted around the mechanical components.
The design is updated with greater detailing, including a subtle crease running parallel to the fender edge. The effect makes the new Camaro look even lower and wider despite having a slightly smaller footprint than its predecessor.
Ed Welburn, vice president, GM Global Design, commented: “The Camaro went to the gym and came out with a lithe, more athletic physique for the sixth generation.
“It’s a more expressive evolution of the Camaro’s iconic character – and one that complements its leaner size and sharper reflexes.”
The all-new 2016 Camaro will be officially unveiled on Saturday, May 16, during a special public event at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park.
