This is a question we’ve been pondering for some time. So, we decided to pass it on to you all. Let’s build a brief argument for it.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will feature some of the most powerful engine choices ever offered in the long-running nameplate. They include a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, a 3.6-liter V6 making 335 hp and 284 lb-ft and finally the mighty LT1 6.2-liter V8 producing 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque.
Those potent powerplants could arguably benefit from more then just the rear wheels for power delivery. And as the American muscle car evolves, we see it becoming more, and more globally competitive. Heck, you could even say they’re more sports cars than straight-line, torque-twisting muscle cars.
On the other hand, all-wheel drive was already considered for the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V as an option, but dropped in the name of weight savings. And both the ATS-V and Camaro ride on the Alpha platform, which gives us a feeling it may have been looked at once before. The 2016 Camaro has already lost 200 pounds, but depending on which engine is under the hood, even more mass is eroded from the curb weight.
But, we turn it to you now. Should the Camaro team ready an all-wheel drive system for the 2016 Camaro? Or should it soldier on in its true rear-wheel drive fashion. Vote in the poll below, and sound off in the comments section.
