The general rule is to expect around 15 percent less power to the wheels than the official engine power ratings. Being that the 2016 Camaro officially pushes out 455 horsepower, the expectation is that there’s probably around 387 horsepower being sent to the rear wheels. However, as the testing revealed, that’s not the case.
The fellas at Hot Rod collected some data from a dynamometer. The results revealed 405.2 hp and 405.4 lb-ft, with power and torque increasing after each of the three pulls. Likely not by chance, the test echoes what’s been observed with the C7 Corvette Stingray. That LT1 V8 seems to be quite the thing.
