The Knoxville News Sentinel reported the 2016 Camaro, featuring the 3.6-liter LGX V6, was unveiled with UT-orange colored stripes and a “power T”on the hood, signifying school spirit. General Motors has been finishing up deliveries of the 2016 Camaro to schools across the United States and Canada.
“The arrival of this car that’s out here in the rain was highly anticipated by our students and faculty members because now we are in the hands-on phase,” said Butch Irick, the UT EcoCAR 3 faculty advisor.
The first year of the competition involved planning, designing and engineering components for the actual car. The Ohio State University took home the win for the first year of the project.
The next phase isn’t just engineering, however. Business students will develop project management strategies, and communications students will develop marketing and outreach plans for the entire competition.
The competition will take place over the next few years, and conclude in 2018, where one university will be crowned the winner.
