Chevrolet announces pricing for its 2016 Camaro, starting at $26,695

2016 Camaro front
It’s been a few months since Chevrolet revealed the redesigned 2016 Camaro and now the automaker has announced pricing ahead of its on-sale date later this year.

For $26,695 (including $995 destination), the base Camaro 1LT coupe comes standard with Chevrolet MyLink with Apple CarPlay capability, OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot, automatic climate control and a driver mode selector that has Snow/Ice, Tour and Sport modes (there’s also a Track mode for 1SS and 2SS versions).

Should you fancy a V8, the 1SS kicks off at $37,295 and includes LED daytime running lights, keyless access (with push-button start), rearview camera, electronic parking brake and a flat-bottomed, leather-wrapped steering wheel. Performance-wise, the 1SS package brings a limited-slip differential (manual gearbox only), a configurable driver information center, active rev matching technology (again, for manual), Brembo brakes, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric run-flat tires and cooling systems for the engine oil, gearbox and differential.

For those seeking more premium features, the 2SS kit adds heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging, head-up display and a Bose sound system. New safety systems like Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are also part of the deal.

As a refresher, the 2016 Camaro has three available engine options (for either coupe or convertible body styles): an entry-level 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, a 3.6-liter V6 with 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque, or a 6.2-liter V8 with 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. Paired with your engine selection is either a six-speed manual or eight-speed paddle-shift automatic.

The Ford Mustang counters with a 300 hp V6, 310 hp turbocharged four-cylinder, and a 435 hp V8. Notably, the 2016 Camaro’s turbocharged four-cylinder is an entry-level engine, while Ford pegs its turbo four as a mid-grade motor.

Coupe variants will go on sale late this year while convertible models will follow in the first few months of 2016.
