2016 Turbo Camaro Could Be Far Lighter than EcoBoost Mustang

We still don’t have the official weight figures for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, but based on comments made by Camaro mastermind Al Oppenheiser when speaking with Autoblog, it sounds as though the turbocharged 4-cylinder Chevy muscle car could weigh significantly less than the popular EcoBoost Mustang – which could help make up for the power differential between the two.
