Chevrolet Camaro wins 2016 car of the year

The Chevy Camaro has been a favorite among driving enthusiasts since it first entered the market in 1967. This year, the Camaro 2016, made by General Motors, took home the title of Car of the Year by Motor Trend Magazine. There were seven other finalists competing for this honor including the Audi TT, the BMW 7 Series, and the Mercedes-Benz GTS.

Edward Loh, editor-in-chief for Motor Trend, said the Camaro “… is one of the finest driving vehicles in the world at any price, though its price is well within reach of the average consumer.”

The Camaro has a long and lustrous history of appealing to its consumers with innovative designs and classic, good quality workmanship. The 2016 Camaro is no exception to this innovative spirit. Keeping the integral look and feel of a Camaro, the car was completely redesigned to streamline its body and significantly reduce the weight of the car (up to 390 pounds!) without taking away from any of the classic design. You’ll look at a 2016 and see a beautiful Camaro—it’s not until you compare this year’s model with previous years that you’ll note the exact differences, and those changes are monumental to the handling and beauty.

Not only does the 2016 Camaro handle beautifully and pick up faster, it offers three different engine types to suit your preference of performance.

  • 2.0L Turbo. This engine comes standard on the LT and offers 275 horsepower. It goes from 0-60 in 5.4 seconds on a manual, 5.5 on an automatic. This engine offers great efficiency and the model provides excellent agility.
  • 3.6L V6. This engine is available on the LT and offers 335 horsepower. It goes from 0-60 in 5.1 seconds.
  • 6.2L V8. With 455 horsepower, this engine brings the Camaro SS from 0-60 in 4 seconds flat! With fuel management and other technological advances, the fuel efficiency is excellent for this level of power.

This year’s Camaro features a range of technology and features to link the use of your car to the rest of your busy life. Available in 24 colors with a style that’s classically impressive, the Camaro earned its award this year, and will earn your praise on the road.
