This last weekend the 2016 Chevy Camaro premiered in Canada at the 17th Annual St. Catharines Powertrain Show & Shine. The new Camaro comes with one of three powertrain options, and each engine selection is an example of the high quality workmanship coming out of the St. Catharines Powertrain facility in Ontario. While each of the engine options on the 2016 Chevy Camaro offers enough horsepower to satisfy the soul of any speed-fiend, they have distinctly different advantages, depending on what you are looking for in a muscle car.
Efficient and powerful Ectotec 2.0L turbo
If efficiency is your goal, the Ectotec 2.0L turbo is your best friend, putting out 275 horsepower, 295 pound-feet of torque, and an estimated fuel consumption rating of just 7.8 L/100 km on the highway. This highly effective engine premiered in 2013 on the Chevy Malibu and has been improving ever since.
Next evolution of the 3.6L V-6
Right in the middle of the 2016 Camaro’s engine options falls the 3.6L V-6. This engine has the best specific output of any naturally aspirated V-6 with 335 horsepower, and is sure to make the Camaro fly.
LT1 6.2L V-8 powerhouse
Of course, if you are in the mood for pure power, the 2016 Camaro has that in spades with the LT1 6.2L V-8 available on the SS trim. This gorgeous piece of machinery can deliver a whopping 455 horsepower matched with 455 pound-feet of torque. That makes the 2016 Camaro the most powerful SS ever.
