Hold your horses, pony-car fans, Chevrolet’s full online configurator for the 2016 Camaro isn’t live—but its more limited-scope, preliminary version is! That means you can go to Chevy’s website and “build” a sixth-generation Camaro coupe or convertible, but your choices are limited to superficial items like paint colors, wheel options, interior treatment, and even some stripe packages. There are glimpses at the car’s trim-level structure, as well as what sort of standard equipment you can expect from each model, but otherwise, this is merely a fun way to start fiddling with the Camaro of your dreams.
Chevrolet’s early configurator tool helpfully outlines the 2016 Camaro’s four trim levels, 1 LT, 2 LT, 1 SS, and 2 SS. We know the SS will be V-8–only, but there’s no mention of how the optional V-6 engine factors into the 1 LT and 2 LT trim levels (i.e., must one step up to the 2 LT to swap the base turbo four for the burlier six?). Otherwise, the $26,695 1 LT seems to be well-equipped with a standard backup camera, 8-way power driver’s seat, 6-way power passenger seat, 18-inch wheels and Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system. The 2LT adds dual-zone climate control, an 8-inch touch screen, leather seat upholstery, and Bose audio. The base SS car comes with cloth seats, but HID headlights and LED running lights, 20-inch wheels, LED taillights, and the 8-inch MyLink screen; the top-level 2 SS incorporates similar gear to the 2 LT. Inside and out, buyers will be able to select from a host of colors, materials, and accessories. Head over to Chevy’s configurator page to check it out, and stay tuned for full pricing in the coming months.
