With the segment-first Remote Engine Start in the LTZ AT and High Country trims, the new Colorado is ready to roll even before its owner gets on board.

The Silverado Midnight Edition’s interior features jet black fabric upholstery, a 10-way power-adjustable driver seat, and a 4.2-inch multi-color display with integrated audio controls and cruise control on the leather steering wheel.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS

The Camaro has received many honors throughout its iconic 50-year history, including being named the most dependable sporty car four years in a row by J.D. Power and Motor Trend’s 2016 Car of the Year®.
The 2016 Camaro SS represents the pursuit of physical perfection. Its lean, low, athletic build was shaped by hundreds of hours of wind tunnel testing, which ultimately led to refinements of the grille, hood and roof that transformed this performance machine into the most aerodynamic Camaro ever. It features 20-inch aluminum wheels, high-intensity discharge headlamps with LED signature and LED taillamps.
Inside the 2016 Camaro SS’s refined cabin are premium jet black leather upholstery with tailored stitching, heated and ventilated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, an 8-inch multi-color driver information display and a Bose nine-speaker system.
The 2016 Camaro SS is powered by a 6.2L V-8 engine – the heart and soul of Chevrolet Performance Cars – combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 455-hp powerplant with 617 Nm of torque brings to life the most powerful Camaro SS ever. Its track-ready credentials are bolstered by available Magnetic Ride Control™ that stiffens the suspension for high-performance driving while never sacrificing a smooth ride. Camaro drivers can customize their driving experience by selecting between Sport, Tour and Snow/Ice and Track drive modes.
While the 2016 Camaro SS is loaded with performance technology, it also offers a surprising amount of modern driver-centric technology, including Chevrolet MyLink Gen II with Navigation and Apple CarPlay compatibility, a Head-Up Display, a wireless smartphone charger, an electronic park brake, passive entry and push-button start, and built-in OnStar® 4G LTE Wi-Fi® connectivity for seamless internet connection.
