Canadian Pricing for 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe Announced



As the Chevrolet Camaro nears it 50th anniversary since introduction, there is excitement created by an all-new version of the vehicle that restated the bowtie’s sports car performance reputation. In the previous two generations of the Camaro, Canada had a major part in bringing the affordable, rear-wheel drive pony car to life.

Canadian pricing for the new generation Chevrolet Camaro clearly expresses the cost of pony car aggression for north of the border performance seekers. MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) for the 2016 Camaro will start at $28,245 in Canada. For those interested to know the difference between the Canadian and United States price, there is a $1,550 separation. The base model of the 2016 Camaro is  $2,575 lower than its 2015 counterpart. The addition of a standard turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is a main contributor to the reduced vehicle price tag. The 275-horsepower powerplant replaces the still-available 335-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 as the Camaro’s base engine. At the higher side of the performance spectrum, the 2016 Camaro SS powered by an all-new 455-horsepower 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine comes as a pricier indulgence. For 2016, the Camaro coupe in 1SS  trim will retail for $42,150. Compared to the 2015 model, the new generation vehicle is roughly $1,000 more.

From 1993 to 2002, Sainte-Therese, Quebec was the home for the last generation F-body platform version of Camaro. Resurrection of Chevrolet’s pony car drew upon the expert labour of General Motors of Canada’s historic Oshawa Assembly Plant. From 2009 to 2015, the Chevrolet Camaro and all high-performance variants such as the Z/28 and 580-horsepower ZL1 were made in Canada.

It’s already been reported that Chevrolet Camaro production has been yanked from Canada for the first time since 1992. However, there remains some consolation for hard-working Canadian manufacturing relating to the sixth-generation Camaro. During an event that brought the 2016 Camaro north of the border for the first time and attended by GM Canada President Steve Carlisle, it was announced the LT1 V-8 powerplant will be built at the company’s St Catharines Powertrain facility. In recent years, the 3.6-liter V-6 LFX engine used in the Chevrolet Camaro has been produced at the St. Catharines plant.
