The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is only two weeks away from showing its redesigned face to the world, and teasers of GM’s next-generation pony car keep pouring in. Having already teased us with the car’s engine sound and more compact body shape, Chevrolet has just released a bunch of new details, as well as two teaser photos of the upcoming Camaro.

The first teaser is a photo of the Camaro’s newly designed aluminum engine hood. It’s much more aggressive than its predecessor’s, sporting a blend of smoothly sculpted lines and sharp creases. It seems as if it’s wrapped around the engine, which makes it similar to the 2015 Corvette Z06’s. Is this cool or what?

The second teaser shows some of the Camaro’s rear end, although both the bumper and the taillights are missing. Chevy says it released the photo as proof that the next-gen Camaro will retain the muscular rear fenders of the current model, while receiving greater detailing around back. Unfortunately, this teaser doesn’t reveal much besides a nicely sculpted trunk lid and reshaped taillight housings.

“The Camaro went to the gym and came out with a lithe, more athletic physique for the sixth generation,” said Ed Welburn, vice president of GM Global Design. “It’s a more expressive evolution of the Camaro’s iconic character – and one that complements its leaner size and sharper reflexes.”

We’ll find out whether that’s true or not on May 16th, when the 2016 Camaro breaks cover at a special event at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park.

Why it matters

These teasers don’t reveal a lot more than we already knew, but it’s part of the game automakers like to play before an important car is unveiled. What matters here is that we’re just two weeks away from seeing the next-generation Camaro in the flesh. Make sure you stay tuned to TopSpeed until then though, as Chevrolet will likely send even more teasers our way.

Press Release

For the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, the design team set out to create a leaner, more athletic design that complemented the new driving experience.

“The Camaro went to the gym and came out with a lithe, more athletic physique for the sixth generation,” said Ed Welburn, vice president, GM Global Design. “It’s a more expressive evolution of the Camaro’s iconic character – and one that complements its leaner size and sharper reflexes.”

The exterior design vocabulary is defined by complex shapes, which appear to be form-fitted around the mechanical components. Every shape and surface detail is a skilled, artistic collaboration of hand and digital sculpting.

Camaro’s new design details draw the eye into the design. For example, the new aluminum hood features powerful, smoothly curved sculpted forms accented with sharp creases. As a result, the hood appears to be shrink-wrapped around the engine.

Similarly, the new Camaro retains the broad, dramatic rear fenders that became a defining feature of the award-winning Gen 5 Camaro. The design is updated with greater detailing, including a subtle crease running parallel to the fender edge. The effect makes the new Camaro look even lower and wider despite having a slightly smaller footprint than its predecessor.

Chevrolet will introduce the all-new, 2016 Camaro on Saturday, May 16, during a special public event at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park.
