Chevrolet recently confirmed the 2015 Camaro will be "its final year in the fifth generation" and new details are starting to emerge about the sixth-generation model.

According to Automobile Magazine, the 2016 Camaro will ride on the long-wheelbase Alpha platform that underpins the Cadillac CTS. This should result in a 114.6 inch long wheelbase which is 2.3 inches longer than the outgoing model. The change is also expected to make the car "several hundred pounds" lighter than its predecessor.

Engine options will reportedly carryover but there could be a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder option. There's no word on specifications but it produces up to 272 bhp (202 kW) and 295 lb-ft (399 Nm) of torque in the Cadillac CTS.

Interestingly, the magazine says the model will have retro-inspired styling that draws cues from the second-generation Camaro. However, previous reports have indicated the car will have an evolutionary design that is "not drastically different" and it looks like a "worked-over current-model Camaro."
