The new Chevrolet Camaro is a really quick car! In the time it takes us to read this sentence, something about 4.0 seconds, a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro can rocket from 0 to 60 mph.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS coupe, which uses a 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 good for 455 hp and 455 lb-ft, will be just a little bit slower if you opt for the 6-speed manual gearbox. With that configuration, the SS reaches the 60-mph benchmark in 4.3 seconds and finishes the quarter-mile run in 12.5 seconds at 115 mph.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will also pull serious g-forces in corners. When fitted with its standard Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 summer-performance tires, Chevrolet says the Camaro SS will stick to a skidpad to the tune of 0.97 g. With the high-performance all-seasons tires in its RS package, the Camaro V-6 should manage 0.89 g, and the Camaro 2.0-liter's tires should cling to the pavement with 0.85 g of cornering force.
A big diet helps the Camaro achieve its quick acceleration times. At 3,685 lb with the manual transmission, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS is a whole 223 lb skinnier than an equivalent 2015 Camaro SS.
