General Motors officially unveiled the latest and greatest version of its bestselling muscle car. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro debuted on Belle Isle in Detroit back in May and the hype surrounding it has only grown since. Demand has been great over these past few months, prompting General Motors to increase production.
General Motors hired an additional 450 workers to fill out a second shift of production for the 2016 Camaro.
For the first time in over 20 years, the famous muscle car is being produced in the United States. 2016 Camaro production takes place at the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in Michigan. The last time the Camaro was produced in the United States was the third generation back in 1992.
The all-new Camaro base model, 1LT, is available for $25,700 with the choice of a 2-liter four cylinder or 3.6-liter V6 engine under the hood. The top trim, 1SS, starts at $37,795 and comes stocked with a 6.2-liter V8 engine. The Chevrolet Camaro will be available in both coupe and convertible body styles.

Driving in the sleet and snow is a dangerous task on the best of days. As winter approaches, it might not be a bad idea to review winter driving safety tips, especially if you have a new drivers in the house. Just in case you need a starting point, here are a few snow driving tips from us here at Bill Walsh GM Superstore.
- Beware of Black Ice. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Black ice can be present on roads that appear clear as day. At night when the temperatures drops, the risk is even greater.
- Take it Slow. Slow down! Driving at normal speeds on slick snow- or ice-covered roads is a danger in itself. Taking a corner while accelerating makes the risk of sliding off the road or into other vehicles much greater. If you drive at normal speeds and need to brake unexpectedly, you could find yourself in an accident.
- Don’t Pass Plows. As a general rule, don’t pass snow plows or other maintenance vehicles. Obviously they’re there to clear the road ahead which means the road behind the plow is much better than the one in front. In addition, the plow extends nearly 10 feet outside the truck itself. Play it safe; don’t pass plows.
