2016 Chevrolet Camaro Teaser Hints at More Sculpted Look

DETROIT — The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro coupe will feature a new, leaner look with sculpted lines, General Motors said in the latest Camaro teaser on Thursday.

The 2016 Camaro is expected to arrive at Chevrolet dealerships in the fall. Pricing and technical specifications have not been announced.

"The design team set out to create a leaner, more athletic design that complemented the new driving experience," the automaker said in a statement.

New teaser photos show a rear end with angular taillights and spoiler and a new aluminum hood with sharp creases.

GM said the new Camaro will carry over the rear fenders of the previous or Gen 5 Camaro, but with updated detailing, including a subtle crease running parallel to the fender edge.

"The exterior design vocabulary is defined by complex shapes, which appear to be form-fitted around the mechanical components," GM said.

It added: "The hood appears to be shrink-wrapped around the engine."

GM has been dribbling out details about the highly anticipated 2016 Camaro, including details about the car's exhaust system and weight loss. The 2016 Camaro shares a platform with the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS sedans.

Chevrolet will bypass traditional auto shows and introduce the Camaro at a public event on May 16 at Detroit's Belle Isle Park. GM announced earlier that registration for the event has been closed due to "overwhelming demand."

Key competitors to the Camaro include the Dodge Challenger, Ford Mustang and Nissan 370Z.

Edmunds says: Car buyers get a better look at the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro as the official debut draws near.
