Chevrolet Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser has revealed some new details about the next-generation model which is due in 2015.

Speaking with Automotive News, Oppenheiser said there will be a greater emphasis on making the model lighter and more fuel efficient. He declined to go into detail, but commented "displacement, number of cylinders, all of these things you need to think about."

Oppenheiser also mentioned the car could have styling inspired by the first or second generation Camaro, but declined to say which direction the design team is leaning.

Regardless of the final details, the 2015 Camaro is expected to ride on the new Alpha platform which also underpins the 2013 Cadillac ATS.
