Chevrolet has offered up the performance details on the 2016 Camaro line, and the car is very impressive. More and more manufacturers are going to paddle shift automatic transmissions for improved fuel economy and performance and the 2016 Camaro line does that same thing. The lighter 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS is fastest when fitted with the 8-speed paddle shift automatic.
When fitted with that transmission the car can reach 60mph from a standstill in 4-seconds and its way to a quarter mile time of 12.3-seconds. Buyers who prefer to shift their own fears will reach 60mph in 4.3 seconds on their way to the quarter mile in 12.5-seconds. Chevy also says that the SS can generate 0.97g of max lateral acceleration.
Performance across the entire 2016 Camaro range is impressive even the base 2.0L turbo Camaro can reach 60mph in 5.4 seconds with the manual or 5.5 with the auto and run a 14-second-flat quarter mile. Buyers opting for the mid-range V6 Camaro will get to 60mph in 5.1 seconds with the auto and 5.2 seconds with the manual. Quarter mile times for the V6 version are 13.5-seconds for the auto and 13.7-seconds for the manual.
