GMI’s Take: 2016 Chevrolet Camaro
Re-imagining a classic is tough – just ask the team responsible for the Chevrolet Corvette C7. As we’ve stated here on GMInsideNews before, 2013 is such a unique and important year for General Motors because redesigned versions of its most iconic model lines will be launching. That list includes the 2014 Silverado, Sierra, Suburban, Impala and the Corvette. However, is one model notably absent – the Chevrolet Camaro. The Camaro has been on the market since late 2009 as a 2010 model, and we’ve been well acquainted with the design ever since the North American International Auto Show in 2006. The Camaro’s scheduled redesign is scheduled for the 2016 model year. That means speculation about what’s next is set to begin very soon. As far as visions of the future go, those of you here on GMInsideNews are familiar with our Revitalization in Action | Dream Lineup projects. The effort was started back when General Motors product development simply wasn’t living up to its potential. Today the situation is much different; we’re seeing cars with a world-class level of design and attention-to-detail. Our RIA lineups take months to plan and execute, and our most recent was the Cadillac lineup that launched last March. Last year myself and RIA vehicle rendering artist George Loizou got to thinking about the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro. No spy shots or renderings have yet surfaced for the Camaro (we’ll wait on Jalopnik for that…) and the design process for the car is being undertaken right now. With that in mind, we thought we would insert our voice into the conversation about where its direction should go for the next generation. The current 5th generation Camaro clearly draws from the heritage of the previous models in a similar fashion to the current Mustang.
