2016 Chevrolet Camaro Priced At $26,695 For Base Model, $37,295 For V8-Powered 1SS Trim9
Chevrolet has launched the configurator for the 2016 Camaro, complete with pricing, options, accessories and pretty pictures.
The starting MSRP for the sixth-generation Camaro? $26,695, which is almost $3,000 more than what Chevy has been asking for the base 2015 Camaro. However, the 2016 Camaro begins in 1LT trim, while the fifth-gen Camaro began at a more spartan LS trim. What’s more, the 2016 Camaro 1LT is actually more affordable than the 2015 Camaro 1LT, while delivering a lot more content thanks to features such as Chevrolet MyLink with Apple CarPlay connectivity (Android Auto will come later), 8-way driver and 6-way passenger power-adjusting seats, a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, push-button start and more.
The standard powerplant on the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT is the 2.0L I4 LTG turbocharged engine with 275 horsepower. The new 3.6L V6 LGX with a best-in-class 335 hp and 284 foot-pounds of torque is availalble.
Opt for the RS package, and the 2016 Camaro gets fitted with 20-inch aluminum wheels, High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps with LED signature lamps, LED taillamps, unique grille inserts and a rear spoiler.
Of course, we can’t go without talking about the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Split between 1SS and 2SS trims, the 455 horsepower fun-haver is loaded or available with track-focused goodies such as Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 (run flat) tires, a Limited Slip Diff (LSD), Active Rev Matching for six-speed manual-equipped models, cooling systems for the diff, transmission and engine oil, Head-Up Display, dual mode exhaust, magnetic dampers, and a Brembo brake pads. Meanwhile, the interior is saturated with far more technology, creature comforts and personalization options than ever before.
Launch accessories for the 2016 Camaro include:
- Three aluminum wheel designs in multiple finishes
- Grille kits with six body-color inserts for LT and SS models; inserts are also available in chrome-appearance or primed versions for custom painting
- A blade-style rear spoiler and a ground effects kit, each offered in 10 colors
- Four exterior graphics packages, offered in multiple colors, including a body-side “spear” design; rally stripe design; front-fender “hash mark” design; and a racing stripe design
- Interior trim kits, offered in multiple colors, including knee pads and door accent trim
- Based on the 2016 Camaro model and trim selected, customers can also select alternate-finish versions of existing features such as smoked taillamp lenses and blacked-out or LED-illuminated Chevrolet bowtie emblems
To boil it down, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will launch in coupe and convertible forms, each with 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, and 2SS trim levels. For more on the 2016 Camaro, have a read on our initial driving impressions and see the full model information here.

The price on the LT is good.
The SS1 is a bad move.is it necessary to have cooling systems for the diff, transmission and engine oil, on the entry V8. c’mon 37k just to get it.
Just get the SS1 out there for about $34 to $35 k.
I guess GM is smart- as most fools are going for the 72 month to 84 month financing anyways- so this shouldn’t hurt ’em.
Hopefully the higher base price of the Camaro points to a 2017 Cruze SS
Andrew it points to the 325 HP V6 and Turbo 4 Camaro. They will be priced competitively.
The higher prices will be the limiting factor for the V8 as it will get tougher and tougher to sell v8 engines in volume.
The smaller engines are great but it is hard to replace the sound of the V8.
“The higher prices will be the limiting factor for the V8 as it will get tougher and tougher to sell v8 engines in volume.”
Uh, no it’s not. That’s why GM is artificially marking up the price. And frankly, I believe as we’ve seen before, that GM will find that just as many will go ahead and pay the premium for the V8 as they always have.
I get it, the GOV is on some dumb-assed crusade to cut Co2 emissions and increase fuel economy. But artificially limiting choice is not going to do it. Because as cars get cleaner and engines get smaller (and more efficient) people will drive MORE; not less. Nothing will change. In fact it will get worse. We have more cars now than we ever had, yet they are more efficient, cleaner, smaller, and 3-4 times as expensive as they have ever been.
The market is the only thing that will change peoples behavior. And frankly people love their big engines and heavy, well optioned SUVs cars, and trucks. If i can get it all I will buy it all. Any artificial means to limit that will simply be circumvented – like buying a used cheaper V8 powered car, or maintaining what i have, or modifying the smaller motor for more power (negating the benefit of a smaller engine in the 1st place).
I do think we will see a downturn in “luxury” type purchases in the near future. But Not because of some arbitrary pricing or GOV meddling. The world economy is shaky, and still hasn’t fully recovered. A proper reset will come and it will change buying habits, not some arbitrary ‘political flavor of the year’ contrivances.
I don’t believe the eLSD is an option in the Camaro SS. Just a regular LSD.

No hood stripes on configurator??
Might be a RPO dealer option. Many of the old stripes were sold this way.
They are not difficult to put on and often there were many choices so they left them to the dealer in some cases.
Where is the link and or web site.
