In an effort to compete with the likes of Nissan 370Z and the Dodge Challenger, GM has expanded the performance kits line for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro.
The new Camaro has yet to hit dealerships, but the company has already announced a bevy of accessories that will help prospective buyers customize their car as much as they like. According to General Motors, flexibility and versatility is the key to the success of the new 2016 Camaro.
For starters, Chevrolet will offer performance exhaust kits for the Camaro SS LT1 and the Camaro LT. The SS LT1 2016 Camaro offers 6.2-liter V8 engine, while the LT model packs a 3.6-liter V6 engine under the hood. Exhaust kits, variety of suspensions, brakes and appearance accessories will make the 2016 Camaro as customizable as ever.
The exhaust kits are designed specifically to improve the sound and increase the performance of the V6 and V8 engines, while the performance air intake will improve engine breathing.
Going into the suspension kits, there are four different kits for the SS and LT model. The main goal of the suspension kits is to lower the ride height of up to 0.8-inches, as well as lower the gravity center of the 2016 Camaro. The suspension kits include coil springs for the front and read, as well as shocks and tuned struts. The result of the suspension kit is a more aggressive and dynamic body and stance of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, all while the quality of the ride remains the same and the handling is improved.
Next in the line is the braking performance kit, available for the 2.0-liter and the 3.6-liter V6 engine of the 2016 Camaro LT model. The “Brembo four-piston front brake package” includes performance pads, aluminum calipers and 14.6-inch vented rotors.
As for the exterior and visual appearance, Chevy offers different grille kits, rear spoiler, three new styles for the aluminum wheels and graphics package for the exterior. The graphics package includes rally stripes, racing stripes, side graphic and front fender hash marks. Inside, GM has enhanced the interior with trim kits in different colors.
The sixth generation of the Camaro is expected to hit dealerships by the end of this year. Some of the performance and exterior kits will be available from the beginning, while others will be available from next year. All prospective buyers that want a performance kit should contact their dealers for more update.
