The sixth-generation Camaro won the 2016 Motor Trend Car of the Year Award.
The Chevrolet Camaro is based on GM’s Alpha platform technology, which is used for the Cadillac ATS and CTS.
The SS has a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 and gets 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. The RS has a 3.6-liter V6 engine and a new eight-speed automatic transmission. It gets 284 lb-ft of torque and delivers 355 horsepower.
Weight is the enemy of performance. This isn’t a problem for the new Camaro SS since it has lost more than 200 pounds (making it 3,672 pounds). The V6 automatic comes at an impressive 3,461 pounds, and the V8 comes in at 3,908 pounds. The lower weight of the SS allows it to run a figure-eight track in 24.1 seconds, which is two-tenths off a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S.
The sixth-generation Camaro looks similarly to the fifth-generation. The biggest visual differences are the C-pillar and quarter window area.
