The sixth generation of the Camaro is here at last and, entirely rebuilt from the tires up, it promises to be the best yet! General Motors revealed the muscle car at the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant a few weeks ago. This is the first time the Camaro has been made in the United States since the third generation rolled off the line in 1992.
The latest and greatest Camaro was officially revealed to the public back in May and hype has been building ever since. General Motors hired an additional 450 workers this past summer and added a second shift to spur production.
“Everyone’s excited to see to the Camaro roll down the line and get shipped to customers,” said Erin Davis, GM’s Lansing-based spokeswoman. “We feel really lucky we’re the plant that gets to have it built not only in the U.S. but Lansing.”
2016 Camaro production is expected to be running at full speed for the foreseeable future.
The introductory model is the Camaro 1LT, available at a starting price of $25,700 with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder or 2.6-liter V6 under the hood. At the top of the pyramid is the 1SS with a 6.2-liter V8 under the hood and a price of $37,795.
We here at Tom Naquin Chevrolet can’t wait to see the latest Camaro on our lot!
