DETROIT — The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT coupe starts at $26,695, including a $995 destination charge. It is the least expensive 2016 Camaro, with a base price that is $1,995 higher than the previous base 2015 Camaro 1LS coupe.
General Motors announced Camaro pricing on Friday.
The previous base Camaro 1LS coupe has been discontinued from the 2016 Camaro lineup. The base 2015 Camaro 1LS coupe is priced at $24,700, including a $995 destination charge, according to the Chevrolet vehicle configurator.
The 2016 Camaro 1SS coupe is priced at $37,295, including shipping, reflecting a $2,795 price increase over the 2015 Camaro 1SS, which starts at $34,500, including shipping.
Doran said pricing on the 2016 Camaro convertible will be announced in early October, with deliveries beginning about four to six weeks after the coupe's rollout.
There will be a "staggered launch" of 2016 Camaro models, Doran said.
He said the first Camaro coupes to be produced will be those with the 3.6-liter V6 and 6.2-liter V8 engines, followed by the launch of the LT models with the all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.
"Dealers are telling us that shoppers seem to be most interested in the 2.0-liter turbo model," Doran said. "I think that car will surprise a lot of people with how fast it is, how much fun it is and how fuel efficient it is."
Doran said the 1LS was a "small part of Camaro volume," which is why it has been dropped. In comparison, the Camaro 1LT model is the most popular trim level.
The 2016 Camaro will have a simplified model lineup with two models: LT and SS and four trim levels. They are 1LT, 2LT, 1SS and 2SS.
New standard features on the 2016 Camaro include Chevrolet MyLink with Apple CarPlay capability, OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot, a driver information center with color display, keyless access with push-button start, a rearview camera, LED daytime running lights and a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel.
The new Camaro Visualizer lets car shoppers check out options, accessories and exterior colors. Accessories include ground effects and stripe packages, including a rally stripe design.
