We’ve known for four years that the 2016 Chevy Camaro will switch from GM’s heavy, aging, Australian-based Zeta platform to the new, all-singing, all-dancing Alpha platform.
It will not be on the Cadillac ATS’s short-wheelbase version of Alpha but on the long-wheelbase version used for the 2014 Cadillac CTS. As with the CTS, the new Camaro will lose several hundred pounds of weight in its next iteration.
Why the long wheelbase? At 114.6 inches, it’s just 2.3 inches longer than the current Camaro’s wheelbase and shorter than the Dodge Challenger’s, although it is a full 7.5 inches longer than the Mustang’s?.
