This is it!

The 2016 Camaro Six is official today with a huge debut in Belle Island, Detroit.

Headline numbers are a curb weight drop by more than 200 pounds, plus a top-level (for now) engine making 455-horsepower via 6.2-liters.

A new turbo engine joins the Camaro RS and SS models, with outputs of the four estimated at 275-horsepower, up to 335-hp for the 3.6-liter V6 of the RS.camaro deconstructed

— all-new exterior design with a far more scultped and creased bodywork, giving the classic Camaro shape a highly interesting feel from various angles. This is clearest in the hood, where deep creases flow and intersect between the windshield and leading edge of the hood. Far deeper stamping and creases also wrap the cabin of the car in a pinched beltline, while deep surfacing creases also liven up the lower sills, roof, trunk and bumpers. It looks hot.2016-chevrolet-camaro-six-underthehood-1-1480x551 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Live Reveal 8

— magnetic ride control will be offered on the Camaro for the first time

— all-new cabin with some really cool metallic pieces, fresh tech and even customizable mood lighting….

— a four-mode drive system on the SS adds Track to he Tour, Sport and Snow settings of the lesser-engined models

— the RS and SS Camaro’s shown here are both extremely aggressive, with the base models also far more butch and capable dynamically and visually than ever before.

— all-new LED lighting out back mimics the style of the Corvette Stingray’s lamps, but in a single piece unit

— out front, HID and LEDs all glow the same matching blue-white shade, with the RS wearing vertical lower light bars. The SS has these lines of pure white LED in a horizontal pattern just below the main lighting.

The Camaro is likely to carry a base price of around $24,000, up to around $42,000 for the SS with every option. Arrival timeframes are not available, but we ballpark November for first deliveries.
