2016 Chevy Camaro is a Car and Driver 10Best

The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is a Car and Driver 10Best. After driving the Camaro SS, Car and Driver editors praised the Camaro for “elevating the entire genre,” writing:

Less weight and more power combines for performance success. With weight savings of up to 390 pounds (177 kg), the all-new Camaro resets performance benchmarks for the segment. The all-new, 455-hp (336 kW) Camaro SS coupe – the most powerful Camaro SS ever – sprints from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds and covers the quarter-mile in 12.3 seconds, when equipped with the all-new eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.

LOS ANGELES – The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is a Car and Driver 10Best. After driving the Camaro SS, Car and Driver editors praised the Camaro for “elevating the entire genre,” writing:

“Quick electric-assist steering and excellent front-end grip mean that you fire the Camaro into corners. There is no extraneous steering input necessary as the Camaro exhibits excellent path control. Body motions – roll, pitch, and squat – are all tightly controlled. What little body motion that is allowed is meted out in a perfectly progressive fashion. A trustier back-road companion is hard to come by. It’s not the muscle-bound brute some might be expecting and that its body might suggest – it’s a fully modern sports coupe.”

For Steve Majoros, director, Chevrolet Car Marketing, the 10Best recognition indicates that Camaro again sets the performance-car segment benchmark:

“The fifth-gen Camaro was America’s best-selling performance car for five consecutive years,” said Majoros. “To build on that success, the team delivered an all-new sixth-gen model with even greater levels of performance, efficiency, and technology. Being named one of the 10Best cars of 2016 by Car and Driver shows new Camaro is not only the best car in the performance-car segment, but is one of the best new cars on the market regardless of category.”

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro starts at $26,695 for the Camaro 1LT and $37,295 for the 1SS.
