Advanced Tech Tailors 2016 Camaro Driving Experience

New technologies in the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will enable drivers to tailor the car to the moment, whether it’s heading to work, touring Highway 27 or lapping a road course.

Now available at Cecil Clark Chevrolet, the all-new Camaro will set the technological benchmark for the segment.

“The new Camaro was designed with the driver in mind – Chevrolet engineers even incorporated feedback from fifth-generation owners,” said Nelson Cabral of Cecil Clark Chevrolet. “Our customers will appreciate that this generation delivers more power, agile handling and driver-focused technologies.”

The instrument cluster provides Leesburg-area drivers with essential performance information, as well as an available eight-inch-diagonal high-definition center screen, that can be configured to provide additional features including navigation, performance, and infotainment.

Another eight-inch screen, integrated in the center of the instrument panel, serves as the interface for the enhanced, next-generation MyLink system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The new center console and center stack are optimized for the driver-focused interior. For example, the heating and cooling controls are integrated into rings surrounding the air ducts. Eliminating the associated buttons makes the cabin feel more spacious, and makes adjusting the temperature easy for Leesburg-area drivers, while keeping their eyes on the road.

An available, segment-first LED ambient lighting system, integrated in the dash, door panels and center console, offers 24 different colors, as well as fade and transition effects that spread across the interior. There’s even a theatrical “car show” mode that cycles randomly through the entire color spectrum when the Camaro is parked.

Most of the features can be changed via the new Driver Mode Selector, which includes Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport and – on SS models – Track settings. Calibrations for throttle progression, steering, stability control and more are optimized for each setting.

For the first time the Camaro SS will be available with Magnetic Ride Control, previously available only on the Camaro ZL1. The active damping system offers Leesburg-area enthusiasts three preset programs – Tour, Sport and Track – that adjust the ride and handling balance. From there, it reads road and driver inputs at 1,000 times per second, and automatically adjusts the dampers for optimal performance.

Additionally, there is an enhanced dual-mode exhaust system. New electronically controlled valves can bypass the mufflers under spirited acceleration, delivering improved performance and greater sound levels. It also offers personalization options, from a “stealth” mode to a more aggressive “track” mode.

Leesburg-area drivers can adjust eight attributes using the Camaro’s new Driver Mode Selector– accessed via a switch on the center console. The system enables the driver to tailor the look, sound and feel of 2016 Camaro to their preferences and driving conditions:
