The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro both fell and grew slightly, depending on trim level, compared to the 2015 model, according to a pricing analysis performed by GM Authority.
First things first: Chevy isn’t offering the new Camaro in the bare-bones LS trim level, at least not for the 2016 model year. Instead, the 2016 Camaro starts life as a much more well-equipped 1LT. As such, the MSRP for Chevy’s new sports car starts $1,995 higher than the 2015 Camaro in 1LS trim. Secondly, pricing is currently only available for the 2016 Camaro Coupe, with figures for the 2016 Camaro Convertible expected in the first quarter of 2016.
So, comparing carry-over trim levels of the Camaro Coupe directly to each other shows that the 2016 Camaro 1LT has an MSRP that’s $305 less than that of the 2015 model with the same trim level, though with the base 2.0L Turbo LTG engine, while the 2016 Camaro in the 2LT trim is $595 more than the 2015 model. The new 3.6 V6 LGX is a $1,495 option on both the 1LT and 2LT trims.
Moving up, the 1SS and 2SS models with the 6.2L V8 LT1 engine gain a significant $2,795 and $3,995, respectively, over the 2015 Camaro. Granted, all four trim levels of the 2016 Camaro offer significantly more features than the 2015 model, not to mention a better and more refined car.

The Camaro is all-new for the 2016 model year, representing the sixth generation of the Camaro nameplate. The car receives a complete overhaul that results in an all-new platform, exterior, interior, and powertrains. In fact, only the parts on the sixth-gen Camaro that carry over from the fifth-generation, including the rear Bowtie emblem and the SS badge. The results are a lighter car that’s more nimble, more fun to drive, and more modern.
We will update this article with pricing when Chevrolet releasing pricing for the Camaro Convertible.
