The advent of the new Camaro will be a challenge to its oldest and main rival, the iconic Mustang.
The sixth generation Camaro sales will begin in late 2015 and will be offered in LT and SS models built on the GM Alpha platform at Lansing Grand River Assembly in Michigan. The A platform is currently used by the Cadillac ATS. The 2016 Camaro will weigh 200 lb (91 kg) less than its predecessor. Over 70% of the sixth generation's architectural components are unique to the car and are not shared with any other current GM product.
