Chevrolet Camaro: 2016 Car of the Year Nominee

Chevyís iconic Camaro has received a ground-up redesign for 2016, a makeover thatís transformed it from a muscle machine into a world-beating sports car. But is that enough?

It now shares the same underlying architecture as the luxurious and oh-so-lovely Cadillac ATS. These bones grace this high-performance coupe with myriad benefits; itís smaller, lighter, faster and tighter than before.

It may look like a relic from the 1960s, but nothing could be further from the truth. Obviously, the new platform it rides atop attests to this, but it only takes one peek under the hood to realize thereís more to this story.

A full range of modern powerplants is available in this car, an engine lineup that spookily mirrors a certain crosstown rival. Like the Ford Mustang, this Camaro is available with one of three different mechanical hearts.

The entry-level engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. It delivers a totally competent 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of twist. A decade and a half ago, these were V8-beating figures, but now theyíre offered in the most basic Camaro.

Stepping up from there, you can opt for a mid-range V6 that displaces 3.6L and puts out 335 horses along with 284 lb-ft of peak torque. Our car-of-the-year tester was fitted with this smooth and snarly powerplant, which was paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual is also available, and preferable.
