For those who still haven’t heard, the sixth-gen Camaro is the first Camaro to have been built in the United States since the third-generation model in 1992. With that in mind, the new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro slated for sale rolled off the General Motors Lansing Grand River assembly plant on Monday morning at 10:30 AM local time, marking a new era in the Camaro story.
For its part, the LGR Assembly plant, which also builds the Cadillac ATS family and Cadillac CTS family, received a $175-million upgrade in tooling and equipment as well as adding 500 jobs to support 2016 Camaro production. According to the Lansing State Journal, the Chevrolet dealers around the Lansing area expect the car to be on their lots by mid-November.
We’ve seen hot laps, we’ve seen aftermarket parts, and we’ve seen SEMA-ready concepts, and soon we will be driving the 2016 Camaro. As with anybody with a soul, we can hardly wait to strap ourselves in and chase the sun with the howl of the 6.2L LT1 V8 filling our eardrums.
