Chevrolet recently announced the 2016 Camaro SS performance specs, and for a good reason – the 2016 model year’s improved performance is worthy of bragging rights. While Chevy’s plan for improving the Camaro was very basic and predictable – lighter build plus more power – it’s a strategy that is proven to work.
The 2016 Camaro SS has dropped 390 pounds and gotten itself a newer, more powerful engine. As a result, driving the SS feels like you’re riding on the wind – agile, responsive, and light. The sports car has also received improved brakes and can hug corners tighter than ever. But that’s not even the 2016 Camaro’s proudest achievement – the SS trim level is capable of going from 0 to 60 in as little as 4 seconds. However, if you prefer manual, the extra time it takes to shift gears shows, pushing the time up to 4.3 seconds.
If you’re still curious about the power behind the 2016 Camaro SS performance specs, the sports car is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that provides drivers with 455 HP. Other engine options are available, but the SS model with the V8 engine is the only one capable of the quick acceleration rate and incredibly agile, lightweight driving experience.
