Next-generation Chevrolet Camaro will get smaller engines; design will remain unchanged

Chevrolet Camaro

We already know that Chevrolet has started the working on the next generation Camaro, but today, Al Oppenheiser, Camaro ’s Chief Engineer, is offering up new details on the car that is due in the fall of 2015. According to him, the new Camaro will get a choice of smaller engines and will most likely be lighter compared to the current generation, but the company will try to keep its design untouched.

"We always get hammered for mass, and that’s not going to be getting easier going forward. Displacement, number of cylinders, all of these things you need to think about."

The timing for this new Camaro shouldn’t be at all surprising considering Ford is already preparing a facelift Mustang for 2015 with an exterior update and either a turbocharged V6 or even a turbo 4-cylinder. Chevrolet’s target will be to stay as successful as they currently are: "We always have to stay fresh and ahead. [But] we do not want to lose the fact that we have nearly 40 percent of the market."

I also think its design is not needed to be changed anyway. The smaller engines will be more powerful and efficient, yes/no?

As long as it sports that design, I don’t think I’ll ever like its appearance.

It will help decrease the weight of it; thus, this will be more powerful and speedy.

Chevrolet’s ideas make me admire them more. This will greatly help in the decrease of its weight, enabling it to gain more speed.

It is good to hear from the chief engineer of Camaro that they are making enhancements, and are still up for competition since Ford already has a concept for 2015.

I’m surprised to know that they only took over 40% of the market. I thought the Americans had always loved Chevrolet more than any other companies?

Chevrolet has nice tactics; no wonder they seem to be effortlessly reaching the top. Stay unfazed and stable at the front while working hard at the background.

I really like the light feature, knowing that Camaro cars are bulky in figure. The lighter version will be highly anticipated.

Keep on being optimistic, Chevrolet! It’s evident how people love Chevrolet; among my friends, almost all of them owns a Chevrolet car. If they pursue on producing wonderful cars, there would be no doubt that someday, they’ll take over more than 90% of the market.

I like this Camaro, and I think that a lighter version of it will put their market on top.

I don’t think they should be contented with 40%, although I didn’t say that’s not a big deal either. Since Camaro has previously been exposed to the public, they should probably enhance the exterior more; people might get tired out of its old style already.
