2016 Chevrolet Camaro, 2017 Chevrolet Malibu – 2015 Dubai Live


Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

New Camaro is 90.7 kg lighter than the outgoing model.

The all new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro and 2017 Chevrolet Malibu have made their Middle Eastern premieres at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show.

Revealed on May 16, 2015, the Chevrolet Camaro is based on the rear-wheel drive Alpha platform that is more aluminum intensive than before, whilst not compromising on structural rigidity that has been increased by 28 percent. According to GM, 70 percent of the components were developed specifically for the new Camaro.

The engine lineup includes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, a 3.6-liter V6, and a 6.2-liter V8 in the SS variant. Paired to these engines are either a 6-speed manual transmission or a new 8-speed automatic with steering-mounted paddles.
