Auto industry experts have speculated that the SS will have an aggressive 6.2L V8 engine for 2016. This roaring engine has a great horsepower of 415, matched by 415 lb-ft of torque. Those who want to control every shift over their travels can choose a manual transmission option. Otherwise, a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters will provide optimal handling. For a hearty and impressive sound, a gleaming dual-mode exhaust has been added as well.
The 2016 model is speculated to have a modern feel with LED lighting, aerodynamic-centric hood vents, and 19-inch cast aluminum wheels. The chrome features will be added sparingly for a dash of elegance, while a splash of red paint will adorn the standard Brembo brakes.
Changes for 2016
Chevy has made a few changes to the color palette for the upcoming 2016 SS. The Perfect Blue and Alchemy Purple Metallic paint colors will be discontinued for 2016, but the addition of Slipstream Blue will add a pop of color to the lineup. The modernized SS will lose the CD player and auxiliary cord of models past. Fog lamps will be replaced by energy-efficient LED lights and LED Signature Lighting.
