Gen 6 Camaro History

The sixth generation Camaro was introduced in 2016 and has continued into the present day. This Camaro is on a completely different chassis from the fifth generation and nothing is the same. Such a newly designed Camaro that Motor Trend once again gave it the Car of The Year award. The models available for the sixth generation are the 1LT, 2LT, 1SS and 2SS.

For the performance minded Camaro enthusiast, the Camaro has rocketed into the future with an available 455hp V8. Not sure you need that much horsepower or fuel consumption? No Problem! The Camaro is available once again with a 4-cylinder engine. But, this is a turbo charged 4-cylinder with 275hp! Of course, the venerable V-6 is still available with plenty of power at 335hp. Transmissions are available as either a 6-speed manual or a new 8-speed automatic. Plus, Camaro now has magnetic ride control so you can select your ride comfort for road or track.

For everyday comfort, the sixth generation Camaro is well appointed with a cockpit style interior constructed with premium materials, rich textures and custom tailored stitching. A heads up display keeps you aware without looking away from the road and the dash can be connected to your cell phone and the internet for music, navigation and anything else you use your phone for.

Due to the popularity of the sixth generation Camaro, the performance aftermarket has responded in kind with radical exhausts, tuning chips, body modifications and all sorts of products to make the already fast Camaro even faster and better looking too! Rick’s Camaros has also responded by being the premier retailer of all things sixth generation. You’ve come to the right place to make your sixth generation be the best Camaro on the road and exclusively yours.
