If you want to justify buying a performance coupe like the Chevrolet Camaro, winning resale values are invaluable. Though wonderful justification, the Camaro's strong residual numbers are simply icing on an impressively fun and capable cake.
Fully redesigned for 2016, the Chevrolet Camaro is not the pony car it used to be, and we mean that in a good way. Sharing its structure with the fine-handling Cadillac ATS the latest Camaro weighs nearly 200 pounds less than the previous generation, resulting in a degree of handling finesse unseen in older Camaros. Perhaps our Camaro review says it best: "Put it all together and you have a car that offers the driving sophistication of a European luxury-sports sedan, but for considerably less money."
Advancements for the 2016 model year carry through to the engine bay. A 335-horsepower V6 and a 455-horsepower V8 are available, as they should be, but the new base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. The concept of a 4-cylinder Camaro might seem odd, but with 275 horses and 295 lb-ft of torque on tap the base car is no slouch. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual or a new 8-speed automatic.
Further elevating the Camaro's desirability are comfortable sports seats, taut and modern exterior styling and a touchscreen infotainment system that includes standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Toss in winning resale figures and a base price less than $27,000 and the Chevy Camaro stands as an undeniable sports car value.
