Sources said the 2016 Camaro, which will share General Motor’s Alpha platform with the Cadillac CTS and ATS, will have all-new sheet metal, but won’t venture too far away from the styling of the well-received fifth generation car.
“The difference between the existing and redesigned (Camaro) is not drastically different,” an unnamed industry source who has seen the new car told Edmunds. “It looks like a worked-over current-model Camaro. It is on a different platform, so that is a significant difference, but when they modified it to be on a different platform, the styling did not change that much.”
Chevrolet spokesman, Mike Albano, commented on the description of the new car provided to Edmunds.
“We won’t discuss future product, but I will tell you that any Camaro we do will have expressive design and will evoke the passion the previous-generation Camaros have done,” Albano said. “Camaro always has kind of moved the heart and the next generation will do the same thing when you see it on the road.”
The 2016 Camaro will move production from GM’s plant in Oshawa to the company’s Lansing, Michigan plant, where it will be built alongside the ATS and CTS. It is expected to make its debut at next year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
