Arrow NEWS: Chevy Camaro successor spied for the first time

Filed under: Spy Photos, Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet

It's entirely possible that these items could indicate that this is the next-gen ZL1 or SS 1LE.

We have our very first spy photos of the next-generation, 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, in what looks like a higher-performance variety. The heavily camo'd tester was spotted on General Motors' Milford, MI proving grounds alongside other GM vehicles, including a Chevy Impala and a Cadillac Escalade.

Despite the hefty amounts of camo, our spies' very long lenses reveal that the next-gen muscle car will sport a more aggressive and slightly more muscular aesthetic, with what appears to be a lower roofline and a shorter rear decklid. The area between the rear doors and the rear wheel also appears tighter, while the front wheels look closer to the car's corners. Obscured by the camo, it also looks like this new model may feature a more rounded rear end.

There are also a few high-performance bits and bobs on display here. The quad exhausts are rather prominent in the rear bumper, while large, flashy wheels aren't what we're use to seeing on a vehicle so early in its development. A rear spoiler can be seen poking off the rear decklid, while the hood sports what look like some cooling vents. It's entirely possible that these items could indicate that this is the next-gen ZL1 or SS 1LE.

Underneath the sheetmetal, a new, lighter Alpha platform is tipped to replace the current car's older Zeta platform, and has been given the codename A1BC. Under hood, six and eight-cylinder engines are expected to be offered, as well as the 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder found on Alpha-platform cars like the Cadillac ATS and CTS.

As for when we can expect it to hit showrooms, our spies claim production will begin in October of 2015 in Lansing, MI. Considering that, establishing a timeline points to a debut at either the Detroit Auto Show in January, or at April's New York Auto Show.

Of course, we'll keep our ear to the ground for any additional info. Until then, head up top and take a look at our expansive first-look gallery of the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro.Chevy Camaro successor spied for the first time originally appeared on Autoblog on Thu, 17 Jul 2014 14:55:00 EST.

Looks like more of an evolution of the 5th Gen. But as long as it drops weight and tightens up the dimensions then I think it will battle for the sales lead in the segment and also make the enthusiasts happy.

This is consistent with what I heard from GM folks, that you will have no problem knowing it is a Camaro when you see it.
Don't shoot me, I just prefer the Bird.
