As production of the lighter, more powerful, more advanced 2016 Camaro grows near, Chevrolet revealed more details to help customers tailor their Gen Six exactly how they want it, including pricing information and an online visualizer.
The 2016 Camaro offers higher levels of performance, technology and refinement, starting at a suggested retail price of $26,695 for the Camaro 1LT, while the most powerful Camaro SS ever starts at $37,295 for the 1SS.
The new accessories visualizer allows customers to view many personalization features on the 2016 Camaro, including interior and exterior colors, wheels, stripes, and accessory options.
“The all-new 2016 Camaro builds on what made the Camaro the segment leader for five years,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager. “It will reset the bar in the segment with even greater levels of performance, new technologies not found on any other car in the segment, and more choices that enable customers to take personalization farther than ever before.”

The Best Driver’s Car contenders are selected from all new or significantly revised performance cars launched in the 12 months prior to the test. To pick the winner, the editors of Motor Trend conduct objective and subjective testing – including digitally instrumented laps at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, and high-speed driving up and down a 4.3-mile hill climb on a closed rural highway – to determine which car delivers the most engaging experience behind the wheel.
After completing that battery of tests, the editors of Motor Trend wrote:
“The transformation of the fifth-generation Camaro from ‘muscle car that handles pretty well’ to Best Driver’s Car winner is astounding. You feel the superior engineering in how the car responds to inputs both internal and external. From within, the car reacts immediately and precisely to your commands but doesn’t punish your mistakes. From the outside, the Z/28’s suspension attacks bumps and dips with an unbridled passion for keeping the tires on the pavement.”

Movies and cars go back as far as movies. Sometimes the cars in the movies become the stars themselves. Examples like the Bullet Mustang or the Dodge Charger in the Fast and Furious. With the Transformers series Chevy so a prime example as a place to get the new Camaro out to the world. That trend has continued through all of the transformers movies.
It eventually would inspire a special edition Camaro. Bumblebee.

Back at Wentzville Cruise night it seems like this would be a great time to check out some of the non Mopar cars before I slam you guys with all the Mopar goodness. There was a little something for everyone at the Rod Run. I gotta hand it to them, they put on a heck of a cruise. The place was packed with cars. Cars like this awesome Buick convertible. For some reason when I hear Bruce Springsteen’s “My Home Town” and he says “big ole Buick” I think of this car.
This post will probably low on words and high on pictures of sweet rides. Hit the jump for a bunch more.
