Sixth-Generation Chevrolet Camaro To Be Unveiled May 16th in Detroit



We have grown accustomed to seeing some of the most anticipated new vehicle releases occurring indoors as part of one of the major auto shows. Detroit, Chicago, Toronto, Geneva and soon New York are just a few places where vehicles like the all-new Ford GT, production-ready Acura NSX or the 2016 Audi R8 has been adored in recent months. While Chevrolet has provided some excitement to indoor automotive events with the new Volt and the production-bound Bolt EV Concept, the auto brand decided to wait for warmer weather to unwrap their most frenzy-inducing vehicle.

On Saturday May 16th, Chevrolet will introduce the sixth generation of their Camaro sports car to the world. With few technical details released as of this time, many are eager to find out what the 2016 model year Chevrolet Camaro has in store. Set to take place Detroit, Michigan's Belle Isle Park, the new Chevrolet Camaro will coincide with a range of festivities within the same complex that will host the Verizon IndyCar/Tudor United SportsCar Championship race weekend later in the month. The day-long celebration of General Motors' pony car will also include a Camaro Museum display and rides inside a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Additionally, the designers and engineers of the Chevrolet Camaro will be on hand for meet and greet opportunities.

Chevrolet expects approximately 1,000 attendees for the unveiling of the sixth-generation Camaro warning that registration is required and space is limited. Fan who are planning to bring their Chevrolet Camaro will be granted preference. A special Camaro-only parking lot will also be set up for spectators.

One thing known about the upcoming sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is where it will be built. In late 2012, General Motors committed to shift production of new-generation Chevrolet Camaro from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada to Lansing, Michigan.

Photo Credit: General Motor/Chevrolet This weekend, the Indianapolis 500 will be run for its 100th time. A primary focus around a 500-mile auto race around a historic 2.5-mile race track has resulted in a far amount of traditions. Some of these traditions such as the Fast 9 qualifying shootout and the honorary starter are newer aspects while one of the oldest is the ceremonial pace setter used to lead the field to the green flag. A staple of the Indy 500 since the first race in 1911, the pace car history ranges from a Stoddard-Dayton roadster to a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 used in last year’s event. This year’s Indianapolis 500 will feature an all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS trimmed in a special preview of the 50th Anniversary Package. The beautiful Abalone White sixth generation Camaro convertible features a 455-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 LT1 engine perfect for maintaining pace lap speed ahead of a 33-car contingent of machines set to run at speed of 230 miles per hour.
