“Alpha provided a strong foundation, but more than 70 percent of the components are unique to the Gen 6 Camaro, including exterior and interior dimensions, an all-new interior, front and rear suspension, and powertrain components,” he said. “The minute you see – and hear – the Gen 6, you know it’s a Camaro, from the stance to the driving experience to the sound of the Small Block V-8.”

According to Chevrolet, the front structure has been developed specifically for Camaro. It is lengthened, to create the dash-to-axle ratio necessary for car’s iconic profile, and widened to provide the desired track width. Also, 20 percent of the 6.2L LT1 V-8 engine has been tailored to fit the Camaro’s packaging. It also gets a new, tubular “tri-Y”-style exhaust manifolds.
