The EcoCar 3 competition is well under way, and universities across North America are beginning to take delivery of a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. Universities’ mission? To craft a potent and powerful 2016 Camaro with greater fuel efficiency and less tailpipe emissions.
Mississippi State University is the latest to receive its 2016 Camaro, equipped with the 3.6-liter LGX V6, and students are ready to get to work and engineer a frugal, yet powerful, solution for the powertrain.
“Our architecture is very aggressive, so we hope to blow everybody away,” said graduate student Stephen Hayes when speaking to local news affiliate WTVA.
MSU’s goal will be to retain the current performance of the car, while bumping MPG ratings up to 60 mpg. MSU also took home the win in 2012 during the EcoCar 2 competition.
