Listen to the 2016 Camaro V8 Exercise its Pipes
It's safe to say the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is a bit of an anticipated car, just a bit. After catching an early glimpse of the Camaro a few weeks back, the Bowtie enthusiasts of the world have been chomping at the bit to know more about Chevy's sixth generation pony car. Well, now we know. But before we relay the latest info dump from Chevrolet about its heady new Mustang rival... take a listen to its V8 roar. It's a sound we could surely get used to.

Wouldn't you agree? It's the sound of GM's 6.2-liter LT1 V8, previously making its home underneath the C7 Corvette, and now finding residence in the sixth gen Camaro. Output hasn't been officially pinned, but somewhere close to the C7's 455hp and 460 lb-ft of torque is likely.
A new Camaro wouldn't exactly be 'new' if the only thing that changed is its engine. Happily, it isn't. The 2016 Camaro ditches GM's aging Zeta platform and rides atop the firm's Alpha architecture, which it will share with the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V and CTS-V. Though apparently few bits and bobs will port directly between the three cars, with GM noting that 70 percent of the Camaro's architecture is unique to that car, not to mention a new interior to boot.
Though it goes without saying, an SS badge will absolutely find a place on the Gen 6, and for that we are thankful. Chevrolet's drip feed of info on the Camaro will dry up once the pony car debuts on May 16. Stay tuned.
