The SS model is powered by a 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine and will offer optional Magnetic Ride Control suspension and a dual-mode sports exhaust. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is 28 percent stiffer than its predecessor, yet drops more than 200 pounds in curb weight. In addition to the V-8 engine, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is expected to be offered with a 3.6-liter V-6 and a four-cylinder turbocharged engine.
