2016 Chevy Camaro 2LT

Chevrolet's new 2016 Camaro is loaded with options from 4G LTE wi-fi to the Rally Sport performance package. The RS package features 20'' aluminum wheels with run flat tires, upgraded 3.6L V6 engine and dual exhaust. With a Red Hot paint job, the Camaro screams for attention. The sport suspension makes the car very responsive, used along with the driver mode selector: select between tour, sport, snow/ice modes. The driving experience is fantastic. Reasonably priced just over $35,000 (as tested) the 2016 Chevy Camaro LT2 is a powerful budget friendly hot rod. 

Under the hood 
Here we have a upgraded 3.6L V6, DI, VVT engine making the Rally Sport Camaro speed from 0-60 in 5.1 seconds then braking from 60-0 in 124 feet. Making 335 hp the Camaro completes the 1/4 mile in 13.5 seconds ( tested with the 8 speed automatic transmission ). The curb weight from the V6 Camaro is 294 pounds less then previous years resulting in a 12% increased power to weigh ratio. Thanks to this light weight and powerful package the Camaro gets excellent gas mileage, 18 mpg city, 27 mpg highway for a average of 21 mpg. 

What's inside? 
 A keyless entry to the beautiful Jet black interior complimented by tons of amenities, with features like Wi-Fi hot spot and available wireless phone charging, Chevy MyLink system with 8" screen featuring Apple CarPlay capability, Bose premium sound system and Bluetooth streaming. The front seats are both heated and vented with power controls making the new Camaro easy for anyone to get into and enjoy.
