It’s here, folks. For months we’ve awaited the reveal of the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro, and now it’s here. The 2016 Chevy Camaro in Scottsboro AL is due to arrive at Harbin Automotive later this year, which is welcome news to anyone who has ever looked at a car and had to wipe drool from their chin. Fully restyled and boasting three terrific powertrains, the new Camaro retains its everyman cred while pushing the model unmistakably forward. It sits lower and slimmer than in past iterations, while its move toward a fastback silhouette can’t be ignored. And, since its almost 200 pounds lighter than in its last generation, it’s more agile than ever before as well.
The 2016 Chevy Camaro offers three different powertrains, each of which is excellent in its own way. The standard configuration is a 3.6L V6 that uses active fuel management and an available eight-speed automatic transmission to offer better fuel efficiency than ever before. Next up is a 2.0L Turbo that takes advantage of the Camaro’s load-lightening to offer added agility through twists and turns. Finally, rounding out the lineup is a muscular 6.2L LT1 V8 that uses a small-block design to offer the highest horsepower of any Camaro SS ever. All told, the 2016 Chevy Camaro offers a little something for everyone, true to its nature as the sportscar of the everyman.
As recently as a decade ago, the viability of a gas-electric hybrid, and much less an all-electric vehicle, seemed like a far-off notion. Yet, in 2010, Chevy introduced the Volt, and any notions far-off or otherwise were quickly eliminated. The Chevy Volt brought the future to the present with its dynamic lines and reliable performance. And now, with a full redesign for the new model year, the 2016 Chevy Volt in Scottsboro AL arrives to carry the hybrid torch for a new generation of Alabama drivers. With a design language that is well in keeping with other Chevy vehicles, the latest Volt softens its hard edges for 2016, all while it refines its performance to attract new buyers like never before.
The changes begin under the hood, where the 2016 Chevy Volt introduces a 1.5L four-cylinder engine that pairs with an 18.4 kWh electric battery to boost overall horsepower by as many as 15. The new arrangement will offer a 50-mile all-electric range, and will get an estimated 41 highway mpg when it’s using hybrid power. All told, this means that the 2016 Chevy Volt will offer a 400-mile range when fully fueled, and for those who face a relatively short daily commute, it’s entirely plausible that a person could use the EV function with almost no hassle. With such convenience in such an attractive package, it’s little doubt that the 2016 Chevy Volt will be a fan favorite when it arrives at Harbin Auto in summer of 2015.
