Lansing Grand River Plant Tools Up for 2016 Camaro. A $175 million investment for new tooling and equipment for the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro, and the return of hundreds of workers to build America’s best-selling performance car for the last five years, was announced today.
The facility improvements include three new paint systems for Camaro-specific colors: Summit White, Bright Yellow, and Red Hot. The investment also includes installation of two robotic framers, which allow better dimensional control to provide a more precise drive experience.
The Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant will resume a second shift of 500 jobs in late summer.

We continue to get the question that is the title of our show this week. Does the 6th Gen Camaro really look just like a 5th Gen. The short answer is no, and we go into detail. Chris was also quoted in an article on Torque News that our buddy Patrick Rall writes. Here is a link to that article on what the Camaro community thinks of the 6th Gen – http://www.torquenews.com/106/community-views-2016-chevrolet-camaro.
