Now, before anyone reading this runs off to Chevrolet.com to build their new 2016 Camaro, I should warn you that the normal configurator tool is not yet live. You can still build and price the 2015 Camaro on the official website, but for the 2016 Camaro, General Motors has put together a special section that allows visitors to see all of the exterior and interior features that will be available when the car goes on sale later this year, so while you cannot flip through the trimlines to see which each adds to the car – you can see what each trimline looks like and what optional items are available with each.
The 2016 Camaro Customizer
The idea of offering up an online customizer ahead of the full configurator tool has become quite popular and the 2016 Camaro is the latest American sports car to get this virtual feature.
When you visit the 2016 Camaro page on Chevrolet.com, the second panel down shows a white 2016 Camaro in front of a very industrial looking backdrop, with four different angle options for that picture of the car. You can also pop inside of the 2016 Camaro, checking out the dash or the seats.
For the exterior, you can select whether you want to see the 2016 Camaro as a coupe or convertible, following by picking whether you want the 1LT, 2LT, 1SS or 2SS packages. Next you can pick from ten different exterior colors, 7 different wheels choices, a myriad of different stipe packages and the Chevy Accessories ground effects package on or off.
On the inside, you can select the color of cloth or leather seats that you’d like in your 2016 Camaro, as well as what color knee pads you want on the center console and doors.
My Ideal 2016 Camaro
When I built my ideal 2016 Camaro (as shown above), I picked a 2SS coupe in Red Hot with the black wheels sporting the red stripe. I also opted for the Rally Stripes in black with the ground effects on, creating what I think might just be the best looking layout for the next generation Camaro.
