In addition to this, for the first time ever, Magnetic Ride Control active suspension is available on the car, previously this feature was only available on the Camaro ZL1. The active suspension reads road and driving conditions 1,000 times per second, and automatically adjusts the damper settings to optimise ride comfort and control.

With high-definition, configurable colour displays – including available dual, 8-inch-diagonal screens and driver-centric technology including Head-Up Display, wireless smartphone charger and Apple CarPlay, the 2016 Camaro boasts an unimaginable driving experience.
