The major challenge for Chevrolet is to bring the 6-generation Camaro in a frightening shape and reducing its size. The way the automaker will take is to change its foregoing rear drive (ZETA architecture) over the Alpha platform as the Cadillac ATS had adopted. This will be one of the most significant changes and specs. With the Alpha platform Chevrolet expects to transform the today's Camaro into a more scalable and lighter pony car.
As the manufacturer said that the Alpha offers stiffness and a well balance needed by today's luxury cars to gain a world-class performance through refinement and driving dynamics.

Its long roof and big footprint have been disturbing the appearance of a sedan so that matter is the biggest homework for Chevrolet. Comparing to the current Camaro, the wheelbase length will roughly be reduced 3 inches and cut 300-400 pounds down for weight. In terms of handling improvement to get more stable, Chevrolet needs to resize the body - cut down the overall length and expand the front composition.
A turbocharged 4-cylinder which can reach over 270 horsepower and about 294 pound-feet torque, seems to be the potential engine version that will steer the 2016 Camaro, and the V6 also cues to be offered. Though the GM's eight-speeder goes as the best for the gearbox, customers can manually shift over 6 transmission speeds as a choice.
