The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is an incredibly important car for the brand. It encompasses the attainability of some of the most high performance technologies in an affordable, livable package.
Our host, Dennis Pittsenbarger, catches up with Reuss at the 2016 Camaro event where he describes his feeling on the launch of the sixth-generation Camaro. Foremost, Reuss was aware it was time to take the mass out of the Camaro, after a long haul on the Zeta platform, built for full-size vehicles.
Moving to Alpha opened up the engineering playbook on what the 2016 Camaro became, and it shows. 200 pounds less mass, and 28 percent more stiff, the 2016 Camaro will be a true enthusiast’s package, including the gorgeous new cockpit.
“This car, more than anything, represents attainability,” said Reuss. “Of some of the highest-performance components we have inside Chevrolet. From a suspension and powertrain standpoint, it represents an expression of who we are. So, this car is an expression of technology, performance and value.”
We couldn’t have said it better.
Reuss also delves into which of the classic Camaros at the event he would love to take home (hint: it’s a second-generation body style) and talks more about why the 2016 Camaro means so much to the city of Detroit.
