Chevrolet has dropped official pricing for the upcoming 2016 Camaro. Upon first glance, prices have climbed $3,000 over what a base 2015 Camaro costs but, it’s the finer things that make up the entire pricing picture.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will begin trim levels at the 1LT variant, dropping the bargain-bin LS trim. The 1LT is actually more affordable than a 2015 Camaro 1LT, too, as we detailed in our initial report on the muscle coupe’s pricing.
Base model 2016 Camaros will receive the 275 hp 2.0-liter LTG turbocharged four-cylinder engine, with the 3.6-liter LGX V6 as an option, should you be searching for extra ponies. Figures climb to 335 hp and 284 lb-ft. More so, the goodies inside further the value proposition this time around.
A 2016 Camaro 1LT will arrive with Chevrolet MyLink, Apple CarPlay connectivity, with Android Auto arriving at a later date, power seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and more. All of this ringing in at $26,695.
Opt for the LT1-powered SS trim, which is split into 1SS and 2SS, and prices climb to $37,295. Track trickery comes full force with the SS trims. Differential, transmission and oil cooling systems are in place, Active Rev Matching is equipped with manual-gearbox equipped Camaros, a heads up display and so much more is packed in for the price point.
But, encroaching on the $40,000 area is starting to get steep, especially those in search for the V8 power. So, we turn it to you. Has Chevrolet made the ultimate value proposition with this sixth-generation Camaro? Or, are these prices champagne tastes on a beer budget? Let us know in our poll, and talk to us below.
