The car is going to come with a completely new design. It offers a look which is familiar to the fans but also something new that brings us closer to the future of the car. The chassis line is that of the one used in the Chevy Malibu vehicle, but it has been strengthen and extended as well to the rear to pose more room in the cargo bay. The new style of the car is mostly owed to the changes brought to the front and rear bumper and also the front mask of the car.

The inside is a more contemporary setting and a fashionable inside than it was before. The old models of the El Camino SS were not characterized by having an all that impressive inside, but as times have changed the inside needed to receive a much higher and an evolutionary look to it.

Engine

There were various announcements about the engine and many rumors on which powertrain was going to power the new 2016 Chevy El Camino SS car. But the latest news tell us that it is going to make use of a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 281 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Another possibility was the 6.0-liter V8 with 361 hp, but we guess the choice fell to a a V-6 engine rather than a V-8 as it was not necessary to make that large of a power output of the vehicle like an El Camino. The transmission system used here is an 6-speed programmed transmission as the only choice.

Price and release date

The latest information is not clear on when the new 2016 Chevy El Camino SS is supposed to be released. We are certain that the next year is when the car is going to emerge on the market and our assumption is that it gets to be released till April of said year. The base price is going to be just shy of $35,000 for the SS version.
