All-New Chevrolet Camaro To Debut In May, Wants Mustang BloodAuto News
After five years and over half a million units sold, General Motors has decided it’s high time for an all-new sixth generation Camaro. And Chevrolet has officially set the details for the unveiling: May 16th in Belle Isle, Detroit.
We don’t know much about the all-new model, and there isn’t much given away in the promotional video that accompanies this post. What we can say is that the upcoming car will be quite heavily changed underneath, which ditches the Holden-developed Zeta platform and will instead ride on GM’s Alpha architechure. Power should be up from 505hp of current Z/28 model and the new manufacturing and material processes should allow for a significant weight reduction as well.
Chevrolet seems to be planning to make some aggressive moves to counter the new Ford Mustang, and wants to make sure it doesn’t lose momentum to its most direct rival. We’ll be curious to know more once the sheets come off about what the new Camaro brings to the fight. Most interesting of which is whether or not it will, for the first time, be offered in right-hand drive like the Mustang.
