LANSING, Michigan – The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro coupe is on its way to Chevrolet dealerships, General Motors announced on Monday.
“The first wave of production models will leave the plant by the end of this week and should arrive at dealerships for customer delivery by mid-November,” the automaker said in a statement.
Chevy’s sixth-generation Camaro, which targets the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, is built at GM’s Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in Michigan.
The first vehicles to be shipped are SS or LT coupes with the 3.6-liter V6 engine.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT coupe starts at $26,695, including a $995 destination charge.
Models with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, the 2016 Camaro convertible, will begin shipping in early 2016.
The showroom arrival of the Camaro is the final chapter in one of the most highly anticipated vehicle rollouts of the year.
The Camaro features a resculpted yet familiar look, more advanced technology and a powertrain menu designed to appeal to a wide range of car shoppers.
Key details include a 200-pound weight reduction compared to the outgoing model.
Edmunds says: The long wait is about to end for performance-minded car shoppers who have the 2016 Camaro at the top of their shopping lists.
