The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is a Pony Car produced by Chevrolet that was first revealed to the public on May 16, 2015. Sales started in 2015 for the 2016 model year. The sixth-gen Camaro now utilizes the GM Alpha platform shared with the Cadillac ATS and CTS and features MacPherson struts in front, rather than the former Multi-link setup. General Motors claims that 70 percent of architectural components in the new Camaro are unique to the car. Like its predecessor, the sixth-gen Chevrolet Camaro is available in coupe and convertible bodystyles. Compared to the previous generation, it is 2.3 in (58 mm) shorter, 0.8 in (20 mm) less wide and 1.1 in (28 mm) shorter in height. With similar equipment and engine, it is also more than 200 lb (91 kg) lighter. Trim levels introduced at launch include 1LT, 2LT, 1SS and 2SS. Standard equipment on all trims includes automatic air conditioning, cruise control, tilt/telescoping steering-wheel, satellite radio, parking assist and seven airbags. A ZL1 trim level with a supercharged 6.2 L V8 will be available for the 2017 model year and will feature a lower grill opening for improved cooling, a new front splitter and a carbon hood insert which removes hot air from the engine compartment. It also features wider front fenders for improved handling, unique rockers and Magnetic Ride suspension. Transmission choices are a rev matching six-speed manual or a new 10-speed automatic.

The sixth-gen Chevrolet Camaro is initially available with three engines driving the rear wheels:

It is available on 1LT and 2LT trims, it trails the sixth-generation Ford Mustang's Ecoboost 4-cylinder by 35 bhp (26 kW; 35 PS).
- The 3.6 L LGX V6 generates 335 bhp (250 kW; 340 PS) @ 6,800 rpm and 284 lb·ft (385 N·m) of torque @ 5,300 rpm. It is 12 bhp (8.9 kW; 12 PS) greater than the previous generation's V6 and 35 bhp (26 kW; 35 PS) more than the sixth-gen Mustang's V6.
- The 6.2 L LT1 V8 is shared with the Chevrolet Corvette and produces 455 bhp (339 kW; 461 PS) @ 6,000 rpm and 455 lb·ft (617 N·m) of torque @ 4,400 rpm, 29 bhp (22 kW; 29 PS) greater than the previous generation's standard V8 on 1SS and 2SS models.
- The 6.2 L LT4 V8 will be featured on the ZL1 models. Output is 640 bhp (480 kW; 650 PS) and 640 lb·ft (870 N·m) of torque. These figures exceed the previous generation by 60 hp and 84 lb-ft and a top speed of 204mph compared to the 5th gen ZL1's top speed of 186mph.
All engines are available with 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic transmissions except for the ZL1 models which use a 10-speed automatic in addition to the manual.
For the 2017 Model Year the 1LE packages return, tailored for V6 and V8 six-speed manual coupe models respectively. Both 1LE packages share a satin black hood wrap, front splitter, and three-piece rear spoiler. The V6 1LE package adds FE3 suspension from the Camaro SS, 20-inch forged wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 245/45R20 front tires and 275/35R20 rear tires, Brembo 4-piston front brake calipers, mechanical limited-slip differential with 3.27:1 ratio, track-cooling package, suede steering wheel and short-throw shifter, dual mode exhaust, Camaro SS fuel system to accommodate higher-load cornering, and high flow front grille. The SS 1LE package adds the Magnetic Ride Control FE4 suspension derived from the ZL1, electronic limited-slip differential with 3.73:1 ratio, 20-inch forged wheels with Goodyear Supercar 3 285/30R20 front tires and 305/30R20 rear tires, Brembo six-piston front brake calipers with two-piece 14.6-inch rotors, track-cooling package, Recaro front seats with suede and leather upholstery, suede steering wheel and short-throw shifter, dual mode exhaust, and color heads-up display. The sixth-generation Camaro appears in the film Transformers: Age of Extinction as the second alternate mode for Bumblebee, and the paint job resembles that of the revealed convertible edition of the vehicle.
